I saw that same XF300 the other day sitting on a colleagues shelf and the thing was tiny.

    Most of the lenses I use these days weigh as much as those older camcorders did, not to mention all the extra monitors, v-locks, shoulder rigs/rails, etc.
    And then I think back to my HVX/Brevis 35mm adapter rig which with all the components was about double the size of my comparable RED package! I think I miss the DVX more than the HVX....

    Just watched that movie ‘Once’ again. While solidly dated, that HVX/panny mono shines through still.

    Wasn't that shot on a 1080i Sony HDV camcorder?

    That seems to be what imdb has listed. Ha, for the last decade i’ve remembered wrong then. I still like how muted and warm everything is. Being a dvd, spread out on a 60” screen, i am not really sure what exactly i was seeing, wide shots were just mush, but it had a feel. Was on in the back ground on silent. Only thing that bothered me was something about the motion, and that feeling went away pretty quickly. Is the first DVD i’ve watched in maybe 7years.

    “At one point, it looked as if the movie would simply be sold as merchandise at Frames and Swell Season gigs. Getting a distributor was nearly impossible – the sound was muddy, and it didn’t look great on a big screen since it was shot on little digital cameras – and it was getting rejections from most major European film festivals. Only Galway Film Fleadh picked it up, where it was shown in July 2006“.
    ...and then it gets into Sundance. Pretty lovely story about the film:

    This was shot during the onslaught of HD, so, i’d imagine HVX or some Sony. Though, i was watching it on DVD.

    Bought a bunch of DVD’s the other week to put some movies on so i can pay attention more to composition than detail.

    EDIT:

    Ok, i looked it up and yeah, all seems to point to the Sony HVR Z1E.

    The irony is, i like “Once” 2007, but i hated the Sony HVR Z1. Tim Fleming’s craft and crew, and DVD down res did wonders for that camera. Although, they used the Z1E which had the cine features like psuedo 25p and cine gamma what-not. Which may explain some of the mojo. Only thing i disliked, was some intense chromatic aberration from the stock lens. Mostly a none-issue though.

    Found this gem of a thread:

    Have some Charles Papert, Tim Curvan, and even Jarred Land referenced. Good list.

    Ha, that was an interesting era. I had forgotten that the Seinfeld Bee Movie clips were shot on HVX (mostly, I'd forgotten about those clips period). A few online, like this one:


    I believe that was the first time I had worked with a file based camera, because my loader managed to screw up the data transfer not once but twice, losing a bunch of footage with dire consequences.

    Here is another film i thought was all Panasonic.

    “A Mighty Heart” (2007)
    https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0829459...ef_=tt_dt_spec

    For some reason, i thought it was shot on Panasonic HPX500, but imdb is showing Sony, film, and DVX.
