    So I just bought this DVX100A, it is my first real camera. I am a bit worried because there is this weird clicking/knocking noise when I tilt it back and forth. Should I be concerned? Also how to make it look like film?

    Thanks,
    Adam

    Hi Adam,

    When that particular camera model is OFF, the OIS (stabilizer gizmo) will make noise when camera is moved. Noise should cease when camera is powered ON. How to make it look like fiml? Shoot in 24p to start with.

    Thanks

    Jeff

    It's 2005 all over again at dvxuser .

    It's funny because I still have ag hmc150 cameras which also have the famous click clunk sound. So I think about this age old question each time I use them

    I sincerely appreciate everyone who responded to this. Just want to give some old timers a bit of Nostalgia. While I did just buy another DVX100A, I am definitely familiar with the clicking noise. I through in the film question for good measure. I do intend on shooting some things though in an attempt to get a 16mm look. Will post up with my results

    SHARBOR is correct about the noise, completely normal. I remember when I got my first DVX in 2005 and had the same worry. As for making it look like film, shoot at 24pa, use the cine gammas or just gamma if its the 100 and expose using your zebras. I always use to crush the blacks in the master ped, you loose information in the shadows but the signal looks richer.. i also always underexposed DV by a stop or so and if it was too dark i just pulled it up in post. Watch films shot on DV and listen to the commentarys on the DVDs of how the filmmakers got the look they did. Back when i was first starting with film, most DV films were being shot on the Sony PD150 (pal version) and then transferred to 35mm (this was 2001ish time). One of the best looking DVX films ever made was a film called November starring courtney cox. There is a fantastic commentary on that DVD where the cinematographer talks about how she shot the film with the DVX100.

    On another note... i kind of hope Mini DV Cameras make a comeback like Vinyl did with music. Mini DV and Digibeta ruled!

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vRTm868gAPU&t=931s is my DVX short film from back in the day. I have a GH5 now, but I just bought a used DVX100B with 90 hours on it. It is mint. Don't ask me why I bought it - I was just feeling a bit nostalgic.
