    Here are some shots of the capture station we carted around everywhere.

    1. The capture station shoved into a bathroom.
    2. Down in that Godforsaken basement filled with dust, dirt and a hazer blowing smoke into the basement around the clock. I was convinced the system would fail down there. If you look closely there's a box of Sony Pro DV tapes standing by just in case.
    3. Another shot in the basement.
    4. Shoved into the hallway on location in downtown Los Angeles.
    5. Camera on the Jib with myself and the capture station on the bottom, on kneeling on the roof.

    Unfortunately, no. The A1 package was a loaner and we'd just received it a couple days before the shoot. But it would be interesting to see a comparison.

    My guess is that the analog capture would be softer than the HD-SDI, but comparable to the HDV version (noise would sharper on HDV but duller/softer analog).

    Fantastic. I vote for some footage too!

    How long did it take you all to set up/break down that capture station?

    Beautiful pictures, RS, but I don't understand something about your description of the capture configuration for the XL-H1 on this shoot. The XL-H1 does not have embedded audio or timecode in the SDI line. So what method was used to capture audio and timecode? Also, the SDI is streaming 1080/60i uncompressed. This requires a very fast storage/writing system. You didn't describe how you achieved this.

    Can you tell us how you achieved those night shots? Did you use special lighting filtration, lens filters, or was this done in post?

    Thanks for sharing!

    hi hbrod, how's it going buddy.
    hey, did you read the entire thread? he said he captured using the "ProRes 422 HQ" codec which doesn't need a fast system like uncompressed. therefore he most likely generated new timecode on the computer, especially since there was no need to sync with tape since he never used any. he also mentions he recorded audio directly into his AJA Kona breakout box. he even mentions the sound gear he used.

    your question about his night shots are still unanswered however.

    I have had the best time with it, love my custom presets etc etc...so much that I also pickup
    a Canon XHA1 yesterday as a b-cam and for easy 2 camera situations.
    A happy story.
