Irish music and dance performed by Dara Irish Dancers and Third Reel at the Calgary Irish Cultural Centre in Calgary, Alberta, Canada on Sunday May 2, 2010.
Recorded using Canon HFS10 with Rode videomic and Canon 7D, 15-85mm. Both cameras used 1080 30P with shutter speed set to 1/60. Workflow: used Neoscene intermediate to convert to 30P .avi prior to editing in Vegas Pro 9.
*The results are not stellar and I was hoping for much better shots from the night. I learned a lot from the SLR filming especially the limits of the 4gig file size or 10-12 minute limit. Also would have shot more stationary wide shots and pan/zoom in post to get the results I was trying for with the camera on locale. I think I finally worked out a decent workflow in Vegas with all the settings tweaked for my cameras. The noise is still hard to take in the shots from the HFS10. I still would like to know how to get more out of the HFS10, I recall setting AGC to 0db and thought this would have eliminated the noise and produced darker images with ability to brighten in post. I did sharpen and adjust brightness and contrast on the HFS10 shots.*
