So my new Hf-s10 came in today, so I hacked it and slapped a Jag on it and away we go.
This camera is awesome, it seems that it is the perfect camera for use with depth of field adapters. Why? Well, its small and light, so even after adding an adapter and a lens its still small enough to carry it everywhere. The threads are a whopping 58mm which in my opinion will handle the stress of the weight better than smaller diameter threads. Also the the focus wheel is perfect and super precise, when you set the focus to manual and you turn the focus wheel the cameras lcd will show you a zoomed portion of the frame and it will automatically turn on focus assist. After you find precise focus it goes back to normal, this might be nothing new and something that is found on other cameras but its new to me and I love it, works just like charm when setting back focus. Another thing its cool is that it has the joystick used to navigate the menus on the LCD which works better with the flip hack as commands work normally and are not inverted, like the case with hv cameras that have this joystick on the cameras body. Other than that, picture quality improvement over HVs is apparent from the first moment you look at that higher resolution LCD. Even though i’m not crazy about AVCHD I think this camera will be a Hit and i highly recommend it.
A compilation of all my "late night experimenting w/ low light, DOF, camera settings, & composition" footage. Shot with a Canon HF100 24P & 30P + Red Rock M2X, Nikon 35, 50 & 105 mm lenses, 2 150w fluorescents. Edited in FCP, no color correction. The main purpose of this video is to test HF100's settings to see which gives the lowest gain in low lighting conditions. I just jacked around until it had very low gain in both 24P & 30P modes.
recorded with default camera settings. connected camera to unibody macbook pro, imported video to imovie09 (full video import setting), muted audio, addded music clip, exported movie 1280x720 setting, and uploaded to vimeo
