I exposed automatically and had the film processed and transferred at pro8mm. I have a photo background so I'm not totally dim, but all things considered I think it came out ok! I LOVE overscanning. Very Cartier Bresson. Some photog habits die hard I guess...

The Newbie forgot to read the forum rules and didn't use his/her real name when signing up...

If people would just READ the rules when they sign up, instead of having to be asked, then we would all have more time to devote to constructive criticism.

Dude all I'm looking for is a "hey, nice job!" or "looks great!" or "have fun with it!" Or even more amazing would be a "now you should try..." "You'll love x-y-z process/lab/film."

Mark, I see you've complied with forum rules so now onto the critique.

The outdoor footage looks clean and pretty and what I have been consistently seeing from 100d but since I have never shot it, I wouldnt know personally. To help you in the future, I would use a steadier method of obtaining footage. Maybe a tripod or some sort of wannabe steady cam setup or something. Also, I would consider a different transfer house as the top of your footage shows the out of frame portion of the film. I have heard less than stellar things about Pro8mm from people on this board that I highly respect so I would pass that along to you. Would definitely try Spectra instead as their prices are competitive with Pro8mm.

I commented on the actual Vimeo link, but to say here... nice job. For the most part properly exposed. Just a few shots where the background's greater light tricked the camera's ISO setting.

Contact Eric at Lightpress for a quote if you shoot a few rolls or more. Their work is stupendous. 1080p/24 uncompressed can really blow you away when done right.
