    Those are some first tests I did with my FS100.
    Nothing great, just a rainy day in Bavaria.
    I did some of the shots handheld and stabilized in post - which did not really work too well.

    One thing that I really need to solve is motion rendering.
    From my HVX200 I am used to super silky smooth pans - on the FS100 I get a lot of jitter/shuttering - even on slow pans - I try 50i next time and see what I can get.

    Your jitter on the pans, I think you would have checked but, could internal image stabilization been turned on?

    I use only manual vintage lenses. But you are right, it looks like this.

    Yeah, looked that way to me as well. I shot with mine today but didn't do any tripod pans. I thought the motion blur looked smooth for 24p (1/48) and so did the director. Wonder what that could be? Is the adapter tight? Was there a wind?

    (I say this because I didn't notice the problem on the inside shots)

    Looks good Frank. The jittering is kind of annoying. What was your shutter speed during the pans?

    Great, creative shots. Nice use of DOF. Happy ending. Does tripod head/drag have any roll in this, or is it strictly a camera/lens IS issue?

    What is that verticle bar on the far rt of the screen, it looks a little darker than the rest. Maybe it's my old laptop that im on. see if it's in the original footage if it is not my pc creating the bar.


    I only see it up to the 48 second mark. then it's no longer ther. hmmm

    I saw the darker vertical bar too... I hope it's not on your original footage.

    I'm pretty sure the darker vertical bar is from the lens adapter. I had the the same problem with my GH2 with a cheaper adapter. Switching over to a better adapter solved the problem for me.
