So, I lost my inhibition to upload using the camera itself (until I get a cheap miniDV camera to do it) to get this clip up. I have another clip, but I haven't played with that one yet (it was too short to make much of an observation). This is pretty much bone stock from the camera, because I have no real editing software.
I wish I had some friends nearby so that I could shoot them and focus on operating the camera and tweaking settings in real time for best results. But for now, I'm stuck shooting myself and remembering details for the next time. The ND filter on this clip darkened it too much, which kind of sucked. I would have gone to manual settings, but like I said, between shooting test clips on public (country) roads and watching out for people cut into concentration. I stay out of peoples' way, so when I see a car coming I pack in the tripod and leave quickly.
It's a real bear shooting yourself, while driving, checking the tripod, steadying the tripod with one hand and checking the viewfinder once in a while to make sure you're in frame, and trying to look natural and nonchalant. For this shot, I decided to use an old dirt farm road, which is technically a public road, but it might as well be a trail through a field. Hence the bumpiness.
A generic clip, but now I finally have a DVX100A clip of my own on youtube now. I was obsessed with getting this camera (weren't we all).
