  2. I'm sick and tired of messing around with mixed lighting so I'm gradually moving over to daylight-balanced fluorescents instead. Can't afford Kino Flo's right now so I'm playing around with worklights and rigging them together similar to Kino banks. This is just a simple test using two worklights for a total of 4 fluorescent daylight-balanced (6500) tubes @ 40w each. I also used a tungsten-balanced Pro Lite 250w with a snoot for a hair light.

    I love the look of fluorescent light and it easily mixes with light coming from any open window.

    Shot with a Canon XHA1, no adapter used.

    There is no sound on this test, just quick and dirty.

  3. You can't count on venues to have a proper place to put your projector. Build one of these and you can go anywhere.

  4. My first film with the Sony PMW-EX1 XDCAM EX camcorder. I have the Letus35 Extreme film lens adapter mounted on the front so that I can use my 35mm SLR prime lenses.

    This video was shot at Ashland State Park in Ashland, Massachusetts this afternoon. I shot everything except for the time lapse at the end in 720p 60 frames per second. This faster frame rate gives me more flexibility in super slow motion.

    I used a 50mm Nikon f1.4 prime for all the shots until the very end. The very last shot of the film was through my Vivitar 200mm f3.5 telephoto prime lens. I also zoomed the EX1 all the way in to get the tight shot of the sun as it dropped below the trees.

    The time lapse at the end was shot in 720p using frame interval recording. I set the camera to take 2 frames of video for every second that went by.

    I hope you enjoy this, I look forward to doing much more with the excellent camera. I edited this in Final Cut Pro and color graded with Magic Bullet Looks.

  5. This shows that you need different settings for different slow motion speeds and that certain footage cannot be slowed down to 1/8th normal speed.

    So that I didn't get any motion blur, I set the shutter speed to 1/500th.

    The sample footage is made up of two shots.

    1. Original footage (which was shot 1080i) - scaled down for Vimeo to 720p

    2. Final Cut Pro 1/2 speed version: ['Speed...' from the Modify menu] This throws away one field for each frame and creates new frames by blending existing ones.

    3. Compressor 1/2 speed frame blended version: Takes each field and deinterlaces to produce a frame.

    4. Compressor 1/4 speed motion compensated version: Looks at each frame to see in which direction groups of pixels are moving - creates new frames based on these guesses.

    5. Compressor 1/4 speed high quality motion compensated version: As before, but spending more time analysing the pixels in each frame.

    6. Compressor 1/8 speed high quality motion compensated version: As before, but slower. This shows that 1/8th speed doesn't work with this kind of footage, but it does 'go wrong' in an interesting way.
