Myself and a small group of young film makers we completed a 4 day early morning till late night "film" shoot with the Sony Z1U HDV camera. The movie currently in post production. I just wanted to share with everybody that this was my first more serious shoot I really satisfied with the results and the quality of the material. Unfortunatly we were not able to use any 35mm adapter on the camera but with tricks we were able to achive nice film like DOFs since we would like to make the movie "look" not video!
I checked the entire 2.5 hour footage on a 50 inch plasma screen and this camera makes beautiful images but I am sure you all know this. I uploaded some stills and soon clips for those who are interested to the movie blog page which is http://www.hdvstudio...rekblogger.html.
The blog is in hungarian but any feedback on the still are greatly appreciated.

Hey Gabor,
Looks like you have some great footage their ! I could pic fault with the colours being a little off and a couple of shots looking a bit soft/out of focus but that would be unfair from a selection of screen shots.
Also did you notice the noise in this shot below ?
Looking forward to seeing a trailer perhaps ?

Hi Matthew,
thank you for your response...when you say the colors are a little off you mean all the pictures or just some of them...if only some of them can you pls tell me which one you think....i colored them all with Magic Bullet but I guess it didnt do a good job...or I didnt do....
Looking forward for your input again..
Thanks
Gabor

Hi Gabor
I think the images look great, and also think you've done a good post job with MB. Well done. As a matter of interest were you filming with gain set to 0 in the lowlight scenes ? Would like to see some footage from the finished project.

but i would fire anyone who puts up a light stand like this:

why do people do this? it's irresponsible.
imagine that guy putting a 4kw on a stand thats 3 meters extended, with the legs (the stand's, not his) in that position.. uargh.

Please explain?

I'm presuming you are concerned about the contraption falling over?

exactly.
the ends of the light stands legs are way too close to each other...
i dont know why one wouldnt always place a light as stable as possible.

it's probably not good for the stand, either. probably puts extra stress on the whole frame and screws since it's not designed to stand like that.
