Re: Editing software: any clear front-runner?

Final Cut and Avid have just been more heavily "branded" as the standard, but maybe thats changing? Vegas is on par and even better in some areas. It does really come down to what your compfortable with, what your needs are, and maybe even your system. I've been using Vegas since 4.0, on 8.1 now... ...

Re: 100D HD Test

Yes, i'm using the condensor setup. Like I said, still getting the kinks worked out. I'm also still trying to tune up the new 100D. Going to make some white card shots for WB and more accurate colors, got a new 2 stop polorizer for the Canon 814XLS. And eventually going to try my hand at transferrin...

100D HD Test

I've upgraded my Workprinter setup (and drove Roger crazy) to do HDMI caprutes with my Sony HDR. I'm really liking it, starting to get my techniques dialed in. here's a sample of what I would call my first success in making the jump to HD... Captured full HDMI, rendered to HDV 1440x1080 http://www.v...

Re: Editing software: any clear front-runner?

I like Sony Veags a lot too. been using it for 6 years now, but it's risen to the top as one of the best NLE's. Very user friendly and very powerful tool. It has a good list of codec varieties for SD, HDV, HDMI... can edit mixed formats very well together. Not much for cheesey special effects plug-i...

Re: Fuji Velvia 50D

Totally- there is nothing like projected 16mm 100D. When it comes to S8, I compared it side by side to Velvia a few years ago. They look very much alike with a few subtle differences in color hues, and an extra stop with 100D. Now that Kodak is carting 100D, I wouldn't bother with the 150% extra cos...

Re: Vimeo or Youtube for Super8 films (in HD)

I agree with Will, Vimeo is more centered on film makers and art, where You-tube is 99% people lighting farts and the crazy double rainbow guy... although the HD looks really good, I don't know if it costs anything? I recently subscribed to Vimeo Plus. It's $60 per year with HD support of many file ...

Re: Ektachrome 100D Colors Look Great!

I was hoping and waiting for Kodak to release in it S8 for a long time. I've always liked it better than the 64T and even K40. The colors are just what i want for reversal, that rich density and tight grain. Projecting it always rules, but i like my DIY transfers of 100D so far too. http://www.vimeo...

Re: Is an HD Super 8 transfer overkill?

I recently started doing full HD captures with the Workprinter. An HD capture is really nice, but most of all I can still downconvert to SD and my image is cleaner than my old standard SD captures. With an HD capture, you can have the best of both. Sometimes I output to SD, and others HD. Right now,...

Re: Russia in color, a century ago

That is amazing! The colors look very believably accurate, and the detail is stunning, especially after 100 years... overall ten times more pleasing than any modern 10 megapixel digicam pictures.
