    Very nicely done. Where were the freeway onramp shots filmed? Looks like the San Fernando valley, perhaps

    Ah, gotto love justice while watching wonderful footage.

    Was the wobble on the Steve and Barry's rack focus due to the 170's lens wiggle?

    That looked like it might be Glendale. Thanks for uploading man!

    A few thoughts:
    _ &@%#*@! about the lens wiggle... good spotting it, thanks for the Vimeo!
    _ "Is your 170 in there was hilarious"
    _ Thanks for the variety... only were missing some mid sun stuff
    _ Noiseless low light stuff continues to amaze past HVX-200 owners like me (well current owners)
    _ Those DARK opening shots are the best so far.. sooo dark! lol... but about them... how does the zoom ring compare to the 200's?


    Thanks for the work and the time to upload the video man!

    I'm glad you guys are enjoying the video!

    Jay: Here is a QT h.264 version on my site. http://www.davidshawl.com/hpxtest.mov

    I, Filmmaker: All the freeway & car shots were taken on a bridge right by Burbank Town Center (close to the IKEA & In N Out). The palm tree & airplane shots were taken in North Hollywood.

    mrbrycel: I was listening to Justice while filming the interior shots and it fit well! On the "Steve and Barry's rack focus / chain link fence" shot, I was doing a long rack by hand on full telephoto so it could have been the lens wobble and/or my fingers adding movement by rotating the focus ring.

    USLatin: The mid-sun stuff was likely happening while I was sleeping! I had a very irregular 170-induced mid day sleep, though well worth it! I liked the dark shots too! Most of the dark shots in the test video, including some of the red-ish/dark orange sky shots were done with all the NDs on are almost all. I really like that we have more NDs on the camera now, more flexibility. The zoom ring is very similar to the 200. I like it!

    Yea, that's what I heard but for the focus... so you think the zoom does also? That could only be a good thing if it still has that responsive mechanical feel.

    BTW, I was going to say Burbank... but I didn't... no credit for me getting the place right.

    Barry just pointed out that the HVX-200 also had the same exact lens wobble issue, I tried it on mine and sure enough I have never even noticed it... so I guess I don't have any problems that I have noticed arising from that!

    Pheww..... I feel MUCH better now!!
