Here is a link to the trailer of a low budget indie film called "Our Feature Presentation" show with my DSR-450WS and a Pro 35 adapter with Zeiss Super Speed lenses by SF DP Dan Schmeltzer. Camera
was in 24P, film gamma 1, with an SDX 900 colorimetry emulation:

Hi, Jeff.

The images look fantastic. Shallow DOF is almost to 35mm. Does the PRO 35 performs the DOF purpose?
The color depth is near to 4:2:2. Do you think SDX 900 colorimetry emulation help in term of color space? I wonder if SDI out capturing would have the equivalent look. Thanks for sharing.

The Pro 35 is what gives the shallow DOF of 35mm, with some help from the Zeiss Super Speed T1.3 primes.
I think the DSR-450WS has very good latitude, is a bit sharper than the SDX 900, but the 4:1:1 color space
puts it at a disadvantage for some content, especially if ending up on DVD for distribution. Using the SDI output
to a 4:2:2 recording device would look great, but at that point it would make more sense to shoot with the
SDX 900.

Thank you Tim and Chris, I will pass the compliments on to the DP. I don't know what the budget is and
the feature has not been edited yet. There was no DIT on this project, just an AC who had recently graduated
from SF State. The DSR-450WS is a very powerful tool, amazing menu driven setup capability. I've got three
pages of scene files programmed onto the memory stick, it holds 99!
