    Hey people,
    this is just something I shot in my basement using only a shotgun mic direct into the HVX for sound. Interested in the cam settings just let me know. Yes I did write the song. I'll keep my day job, no problems there. I'm going to try and get more stuff shot on this setup as I really like the look, and the sound! Guitar is a Martin D35, sahweet axe!


    Cheers.

    Hey Al,
    Yeah, just a couple of 40w fluorescents above my head and two more tubes about 5ft to my right on the ceiling. I've been playing around with my old/new HVX-M2e for the last few weeks trying to squeeze the best, cleanest image I can. I've been rewatching my Barry Green DVD, HVX boot camp, and tweaking and tweaking and tweaking. I have found that because I want the cleanest image I don't use the Cinelike D or V. I've gone to Black Press, and I've tweaked a lot of the other settings that when I had my first HVX originally back in 07 I never really touched, I pretty much used Cinelike D, like most others I'm assuming. When I was doing my exposure tests and focus tests for the M2e, I did find that Cinelike D does give you about a stop/half stop of range. But the noise was horrible. So I started tinkering. Now I know a lot of people will read this and think why bother? Just go buy a BMPCC or one of the other many new cams. My answer............money! I don't have the money to spend on a new cam and since I don't really work in the industry I can't justify the expense. So here I am. Playing with old tech. It is a challenge to work with this stuff but it's a fun time and right now I don't need 4K. Hell, I almost bought another DVX100B! Shoot to tape!

    Hey guys,
    just wanted to tell you about a new Face Book group I started. It is dedicated to the old tech of 35mm Lens Adapters, which is the name of the group. I noticed in various posts you people talking about the old adapter forum is closed and how it would be nice to have it opened back up. So if you want to check it out look for any post of mine here and the link is in my signature. I'm going to post some stuff there, pics and vids.

    Cheers guys,

    Doug K
