  1. Still testing out the GH5, figuring out what looks best. This camera blows my mind every time I use it. The fisheye was shot at 4K in the anamorphic mode and cropped down to 1440 x 1080, and the long stuff was all 1080p 120fps sped up.
  2. 4:3 HD - Montage

    Yeah, I already use the -10db setting but didn't change anything up since last time. That level limiter may help though. I don't think an HPX with Mk1 screw would work as the Mk1 back element is pretty small. I wasn't sure how I was going to edit and shit so I was just filming some slowmo stuff and ended up wanting to have it full speed but not take the time to properly convert it, which is why some of it seems a little choppy I think. And yeah, Sam is the best!
  3. Yeah, that's the one I bought. Shipping has taken over a month though.
  4. Trying out a new GH5 at the park the other day: All of it shot with a Sigma 18-35 and Canon 8-15. The GH5 is fucking incredible.
  5. Thanks for the feedback! I think that flare is due to the cheap adapter I'm using. I've been waiting for a speedbooster to show up for like a month now. And yeah, this was shot at 8mm and then cropped, but I think those flares would be there at all lengths. I'm using the Rode VideoMic Pro R and yeah, on manual. I haven't really messed around too much with it, but maybe turning the high pass filter on would help? Definitely because of a cheap variable ND. I don't mind it for stuff like this, but I probably would work around it or get a new one if I was shooting something other than random park clips.
  6. Vx1000 60fps

    Are none of you reading the replies at all??
  7. Slow mo in Premiere

    Just keep it at Frame Sampling. Optical Flow can sometimes work if you're slowmoing 30fps or something, but can get glitchy and gross looking too.
  8. The Flat Earth Video

    I think it's WAY worse than We Are Blood. At least We Are Blood isn't trying to be a "normal" skate video (intro -- parts -- credits). It's like a bunch of tour montages essentially, and 1000 times more watchable for me than The Flat Earth. Not to say that I like it, but I don't hate it as passionately as I hate The Flat Earth.
  9. The Flat Earth Video

    Please don't buy it
  10. The Flat Earth Video

    Even though I agree with all of your pros, the cons outweigh them, and this video (in my opinion) is one of the worst, most unwatchable pieces of skate media ever made.
  11. Kind of. Most of them have an option to shoot SD 4:3, but it's easy enough to just crop the full HD to 4:3 in post.
  12. I just bought an AC90 so I'm looking forward to seeing how different fisheyes look on it, too. Definitely too small for an Xtreme, I'm guessing, but I think it could look good with a modded mk1/mk2.
  13. I'm not a fan of how that fisheye ends up looking. It's not bad, but it's not for me. To me, that Mk2 compared to an Xtreme is sort of like comparing a VX2/Mk2 to a VX1/Mk1.
  14. Don't waste your time. I tried to do this recently and it wasn't worth the effort. But I basically logged the HD clip normally, cropped it to 4:3 in FCP, wrote it to a mini DV tape, then captured the tape. The newly captured SD footage looked almost identical to the cropped 1080p clip I started with. It was a waste of time.
  15. Wow I haven't seen that name in years.
  16. Filmer Backpacks

    I've used this Burton bag for the last few years: https://www.amazon.com/Burton-BURTON-Focus-Pack/dp/B00AZHH4HU?th=1&psc=1 I have fit HPX+Xtreme, 7D + 3/4 lenses, mic, light, batteries, and laptop in it for travelling. It'd probably fit 3 VXs plus accessories.
  17. Quickstream recorder

    I think it would. Since it's captured via firewire, I think it's just capturing the raw image from the sensor and not even using the heads at all.
  18. "Overtime" Teaser

    I just put up another mini teaser: Watch it loop on Instagram! @alexdoyle
  19. Here's a little teaser for my latest project which should be coming out in the next few months.
  20. There's a tiny speck of dust in the X30 lens, and both are used but in good condition. I'll take some photos of both/either if there's any interest! Prices in USD and include shipping to the US or Canada.
  21. I don't think that's possible, since HD is 16:9. There could be a widescreen fisheye that it the same horizontal width as a VX1/MK1 but then the vertical width would not be the same (since the top and bottom would essentially be cropped). And the same goes for if it had the same vertical width. There would have to be TONS of vignetting otherwise the angle would have to be more that 180 degrees. But also, SD and HD are very different and it's just personal opinion as to which is "better." I like certain videos way better because they're shot with a VX1, and certain videos better that are HD.
  22. 1440 x 1080 is 4:3
