Hi,
before I went to bed last night I got an idea. I was sitting thinking about how i could improve my footage, and then it came to me. Why not film one scene twice? Like a panorama! So in this image i first filmed the right side, and then i filmed the left. So there is a split in the midlle, but I don't think (or hope) that you can see it ;) This gave me alot more resolution. This is ofcourse no perfect solution, but it was a fun test:)

I used my Panasonic GS-120. A 3CCD 1/6".

Could get tricky when the action crosses the divide, nice idea though:)

Yes, I know. And it would get tricky outside, with trees, clouds and changing lighting conditions, but in my living room it worked excellent:)

Friggin' brilliant idea!

Funny thing is, I've been doing the panorama thing with digital stills to increase resolution, but it didn't even occur to me it could be done in video until I saw your post.

I know! I've been doing panorama pictures for years as well, but didn't come up with this until now. Funny thing that is...

I've seen a device that does this with two video cameras. You mount a beam splitter that divides the incident image two ways and get one camera to shoot one half and the other camera to shoot the other half. If you mount the two carefully enough and get good alignment, you can shoot continuously this way.

I thought about this too, this morning. But i think it will be hard to match my optura 20 to my gs120...

Nice idea. I'll have to give that a try

What about using 2 cam simultaneously to create the same effect.

Nice shot and a nice little camera isn't it? Horrible manual control but it is still a bargain for 3 CCD. It's my little buddy.

Yes, the manual controls are horrible! But I am very pleased with my camera. It is so small that I'm actually able to fit it in my jacket-pocket. Bet all you DVX'ers can't do that:P

A little trick I use is to set it to autofocus, point at the subject until it focuses on what I want, then slip into manual and it'll keep the auto focus setting; so as one pans or zooms, it says on the original focus. It's quick and easy but not fool-proof.

I have heard of people rigging enough cams up for a 4:1 aspect ratio the image is acually bent bent because its so much space.
