Edit of footage shot with an FS100 at the Fulcrum/JBVCOACHING Cyclocross Clinic. I didn't have a plan except I was invited to come to the clinic by the talented Chris Mayhew who coaches me from time to time when his boss John Verhuel isn't.
Jeremy Powers made the show with his amazing love for the sport of Cyclocross shining through in every frame. Such a professional. Rapha, Focus, you lucky, lucky people.

I can confirm that the FS100 is indeed a camera. I had it for the weekend and really didn't get a chance to rig it to my liking. I was most curious about how it handled in general, how it handled motion and how it handled being run around with all fracking day in full heat and humidity, it was rather hot. Primary focus was on using the S&Q setting on the camera and also experimenting with a 45 degree shutter. I only used one battery and shot from 8:30am until 7pm.
I used 4 lenses all canon mount lenses the 24-70L, the 70-200L, the Tokina 11-16 2.8 and the ducloslenses.com moded Zeiss 50 1.4 ZF with a permanent Canon mount
In order to shoot at a 2.8-1.4 in various lighting conditions I had to use a 1.2 ND and 0.3 ND filter stacked in a Cokin p-filter holder (note to self, buy mattebox asap) and it worked out rather well. The camera is astonishingly well suited for low light but really, really, really, should have had ND built in. You'll see where it blows out occasionally when the sun comes from behind a cloud killing shots, but I used em anyway.
I shot in the AbelCine tech AB_HiLit Picture Profile (you can check out ABs FS100 Picture Profiles here blog.abelcine.com/2011/07/25/fs100-scene-files-from-abelcine/ ) and the footage is pretty much undisturbed except for a the first half or so where I put Curves on just to look at range and for the hell of it.
Not really a proper edit, I am still learning Premiere and that still feels like brushing someone else's teeth. But I figured that it would be best if something was edited before I forgot I shot this...(its happened). So I am getting something out there for my (CycloCross) people since this will most likely make them all hot and bothered and ready to run around in spandex at a European tractor pull. AKA, the best sport there is.
