    vx1000 footage upscale to 720p

    Hey, starting a new thread because digging through years-old threads on the subject is maddening and most the relevant software has long since changed. I'm a FCPx user, but interested in the process of upscaling SD vx footage in Premiere Pro/FCPx/Compressor/etc... whatever will make it work. I'm including an example of a crispy 720p vx upload as well as one of my own if you want to see the difference I'm talking about, although I'm sure you know what I mean if you're here. https://youtu.be/A-bM40TMzNQ (my footage) https://youtu.be/V5Cq59_GQn4 (crispy example) My question is essentially how to achieve the 720p vx footage. Methods I've tried include: 1) creating a project in native SD dimensions (NTSC for me - so 640x480) and exporting as 960x720 (to preserve aspect ratio) 2) creating a custom project with 960x720 (rec.601 audio and 29.97 frame rate) and exporting that 3) taking a native 640x480 project, exporting natively, and then upscaling with Compressor/Media Encoder If you have any experience doing this and maybe I'm missing something obvious, I'd sure love the help.

    VX1k - MK1 vignetting aligment

    I just got a "new" VX1000. Just did some test shots with it today. And I recognized that the vignette was pretty off to the left side of the frame. But I rather like my vignette to be centred and even in all corners. Is there a way to adjust or counterbalance this?
  3. Anyone on here have a japanese vx1000 they could part with?
  4. Looking for someone to take this custom painted beauty off my hands! Message me here or DM on Instagram for more details. Just had $250 of repairs/tune-up from Kerry at video electronics. MK1 not included.
  5. Hey guys, I've got a full length vx video which is set to premiere in August 2018 in Salt Lake City! Let me know what you think. Gonna likely have a couple more promos before the big day too. Cheers, Mac
  6. Can anyone tell me what the problem is with this with this vx? the colours and shadows look very strange. The first clip in the video shows the problem best. Any help would be very appreciated!

    LUCY - Montage

    filmed over my six weeks off from school for winter break in new jersey It came out a little bit ago but SPs blocked on my school wifi so I never posted We're working on a Travel Skateshop video with many of the same dudes ripping even harder. Coming summer stay tuned
  10. Hey guys, One of my vx1000s has an audio issue where the high sounds (popping, grinding, etc.) are way too high and peaking, and the low sounds (like wheels rolling, cars passing, etc.) are way too quite and hardly registering. I used to record with the audio just set on auto, but as this problem arose I've been lowering the audio level. Started with 6, 5, 4, and now I record on 2.5-3 because the problem continues to get worse. Even recording on 2.5-3 audio level results in harsh noises and peaking levels from ollies and popping and such. Anyone had this problem before? Mac

    Japanese Vx1000 problem

    Ok so my vx1000 eject button is broken and won’t even come out when I use something to take it out. The camera can turn on but the view finder is completely black and keeps on beeping when I try to press the eject button. Can I send it anyone to fix??
  13. Hi everyone, Long time lurker, first time poster. I've had this problem with my viewfinder since i've had my Vx1000. Is it a viewfinder ribbon cable issue? I've got these weird lines that only pop up if the viewfinder is tilted upright. It also makes the exposure etc seem like it's a bit over exposed when it's in fact set perfectly. Snapped back down in position it works fine and colour etc are perfect. All the lines disappear. I don't mind for the time being, it just makes filming with the mk1 a little harder at times. I've attached pictures. First one has the lines. Second is normal. Sorry about the quality.
  14. before you start trippin realize that 90% of the old japanese vx1000 threads are confusing as fuck, have broken links, expired photobucket pics and shit like that. i'm posting because japanese vx's are super cheap and i'm sure there are still lots of people who are just getting into it now. it can be a little intimidating at first and the full translation is scattered in a bunch of places so this will hopefully help. i tried to leave the japanese characters visible because it'll be easier if you just know what the symbol means. like on and off, you will see them a lot throughout the menus and stuff. also, this was just the first attempt at these pictures, so if i notice some room for improvements i'll do so. theres one here that i dont know. but i dont use the vtr mode at all anyways. and neither should you. the options in each menu are listed in this thread . maybe later i'll do all of those too this is only a translation. i'm not gonna give you lessons on how to use the camera cause that is well covered in many many many places like this pdf manual https://upload.cyfrowe.pl/cyfrowe/instrukcje/kamery/sony/instrukcja_sony_vx1000_eng.pdf if you have a jap vx and arent fuckin with it you can try hitting up kerry@videoelectronics.tv http://forums.skateperception.com/profile/4008-video-electronics/ and he will possibly convert it to english for you, for a fee shoutout to swackedflapjack, mkcolgan2, gaygaygalen, and flipsrowleykid
  15. Decided to submit an entry for this contest: http://girlskateboards.com/contest/ It's been snowing in Salt Lake and I've always wanted to make a video like this but never got around to it. Filmed in one day with Kaleb Hadlock.
  16. Recently my mk1's front glass got destroyed when it was smacked off my vx. I purchased a new front element from Century Optics and after the headache of installing it, the vignetting looked quite different in footage (see comparison pictures below). I've noticed other peoples vignetting look like this before, but I assumed it depended on the manufacture date of the lens. My lens is quite old (no Schneider logo, only century) so I figure thats why it had the "mostly black" vig. With the new front element, the vig has a "white line", which I personally find a little less appealing. I'm curious as to why this is, so if anyone can shed some light on this it would be greatly appreaciated!

    VX or HD

    This is probably a well debated topic on this on forum. Im looking at buying a camera for skateboarding. Should i purchase a VX1000 MK1 or an HD camera with a fisheye. My budget is $2000 what are my options? i know nothing about HD Cameras. Extra question- Ive seen VX1000s used with a data video digital recorder. Has anyone had experience with this device?? Does it get in the way while filming?

  19. Hi guys can anyone help me with this problem. So I replaced my ribbon cable and when i look into the view finder the colours aren't really fixed. But before i installed the new ribbon cable it was all black and you couldn't see anything except the exposure setings etc.So what could be the problem the view finder itself or is it something else? how it looks when you point it outsideand here is how it looks inside
  20. Just dropped this transition part the other day, if you're into that sort of thing. It's my first transition project, but it was really fun to make. Cheers!

    Not even going to try to explain this, attached are videos of some major malfunction. Anyone ever seen this? This camera was almost new when I got it a few months ago.
