First test footage from a Hitachi FP-Z31 broadcast 3-tube (Saticon) studio/ENG camera. The camera was fully aligned and calibrated by me, bringing it back to full factory specifications. It was shot at my quarry in Elsberry Missouri, and recorded with a Sony BVU-150 portable 3/4" U-Matic SP VTR. The camera and deck were powered off a single Sony BP-90A battery for the duration of shooting. The video was transfered to Final Cut Pro in my studio from a Sony BUV-900 U-Matic SP playback deck (with TBC and DNR options installed and active), through a Grass Valley Group model 100N production switcher, into an AJA Io via composite video, and captured and edited in DVCPro 50 format. After editing, it was compressed to H.264 encoded QuickTime with deinterlacing and continuous keyframing.
