    One of the burning questions with the MK2; is the quality better in AVCHD or MP4. Not too sure if there is any real point of difference worth noting, but here it is.

    • 28Mbps 50p AVCHD test: Canon XA20 (XA25 / HF G30)


      from TubeshooterMag Added

      This is a test of the Canon XA20 (XA25 / HF G30) using the 28Mbps AVCHD 50p mode. The file was uploaded directly from the camcorder to Vimeo, no editing or processing whatsoever. Settings: AVCHD / 28Mbps LPCM 50p Auto Focus (I.AF) Auto Exposure (Shutter Priority: 1/50th) Auto White Balance Stabilisation: Dynamic Sharpness: -2 / Contrast +2 Sound captured by a Sony ECM-XM1 mic into the XLR handle on auto rec level; you can just see the Rycote windjammer creeping into shot when fully wide - oops. It's a very sunny day, the light is coming from ahead, slightly to the right of the pond, so it's a very contrasty, quite testing scene.

      • An Easter morning in Bath


        from The Film Artist Added 9,276 75 45

        As soon as you arrive in Bath you can sense that it is a beautiful and special city, with it's rolling hills and magnificent sandstone buildings. Due to the Easter break there was a great spiritual feel there and I was lucky enough to capture a glimpse of the Bishop of Bath & Wells, my kids thought he was the Pope. When I capture the world around me I look for for a few things that are poignant and are contrasting, I think I found some here. The statue of a young woman's face, an old man walking with his stick, an old lady very much alive and a boy walking on the edge. At the same time I made a timelapse with my iPhone https://vimeo.com/63203787 :) Captured on my GH3 (updated firmware new video settings used1080P 28Mbps (MP4) no PAL update for Studio 8.5 though, all handheld apart from one shot and no post stabilisation or grading, I reduced the contrast -2 in settings, manual exposure and settings 14-140mm lens mostly used, macro 45mm Lecia used for close up shots and Voigtlander 25mm inside the Abbey. I had returned the first GH3 due to viewfinder issues, this one is a little better, I am waiting for the 35-100mm lens again, definitely a brilliant lens and sure do miss it. There is a lot to explore with the GH3 and it is very easy to use, very stable and post production is easy. I do find though that it is harder to colour grade and MBL doesn't work too well unless you tweak it. I hope you enjoy the morning with me :) All music from the Vimeo music store and yes the horses did respond to my whistles :)

        • Shooting with the HX9V in the Patio


          from Andres F. Collazos Added 333 3 0

          Just having a bit of fun with my DSC-HX9V on a PROLINE tripod, shooting in my home's Patio. Camera set to AVCHD, 1080 60p and 28Mbps. No special settings, just intelligent AUTO, 0ev, and Standard Movie Steady Shot. The camera indicated a tripod mount automatically on the display. I used the Tracking Focus on a couple clips, and it proved useful mostly for locking on a foreground item, then re-composing and finally deactivating said feature during the shoot, to allow refocusing on a predominant background. This only works when zoomed-in, so one has to step away from the foreground subject. I re-wrapped the video clips with REMUX to m4v format (pretty fast and effective I might add), so iMovie '11 could import them. That's what I used to edit (no optimization, processing or stabilization added, save for the slowing-down of a few clips), but I believe iMovie drops the project and final movie to only 30fps, which is rather painful considering how good the original footage looked when played back with VLC...! The final shots of the Lizzard are at a 2m distance, zoomed all the way (16x) Theme: Busindre Reel By: HEVIA
