    Exclamation

    Click for fullsize.

    Ok folks, I managed to get a tape into some PRE-production models of the Canon G1 camcorders here at IBC 2006.
    The camera I was able to shoot with had a Canon Wide Angle adapter on it, so that may affect image quality slightly.

    I got 16:9 DV and HDV on tape at various framerates.

    I'm working on getting it processed now. I have the DV captured and I've got some stills!

    I will organaize and caption/explain settings etc, as I have time in the coming days, but for now, without furthur ado:


    PLEASE RIGHT-CLICK AND SAVE file to your hard drive, I don't know what my server can take.

    These have been shot quickly at a tradeshow booth in non-ideal conditions. THESE ARE NOT THE BEST THAT THIS CAMERA IS CAPABLE OF.


    ---------------------------------------------------------------------

    FILES ARE NO LONGER AVAILABLE!

    The A1 and G1 are now available and there is a growing amount of footage beeing posted online from them by owners.
    The new footage posted from production cameras is far more representative of what the cameras can produce (& better!) than the IBC clips originally posted here.

    Please refer to the A1/G1 section of the forum for more information and video & stills from the cameras: http://www.dvxuser.com/V6/forumdisplay.php?f=93

    Thats great Mikko. But why in 4:3? And what is the compression coming from the NLE? Those pics are horrible. Sorry Im amping on this.

    MY DVX grabs look better. :P No in all honesty I dont think these are indicative, I have seen better grabs from the HC3.

    Further I can see compression artifacts in the text now that definateley doesnt come from the cam :P

    Workflow as follows:

    I stuck the tape in the camera and rolled. I set to manual and tired some basic settings. THESE ARE NOT THE BEST THAT THE CAMERA IS CAPABLE OF.
    Was captured into Prem Pro.
    .tif files exported directly from Premiere. There's no 16:9 flag, so the files are anamorphic.
    There is no post processing of any sorts on the .tifs
    The .jpgs are the .tifs run throguh photoshop, rescaled to 1024 x 576 (un anamorpic stretch to 16:9). one title layer added and exported at 100% quality.

    I will post a few secs of raw DV in a moment...

    Cheers Mikko, really appreciate it!!

    Bit underwhealmed, but will be v interesting to see the video.

    I presume camera settings were defaults? Highlight handling *looks* poorer than my XL2s, but that v much depends on settings.

    Just noticed that the files aren't studio rgb / broadcast legal -- does Premiere Pro convert this on output?

    Just got the video, very interesting ... the picture definitely looks cleaner than it did in the stills- the noise dancing is there, but not as offensive as I thought it would be.

    It's tough to judge without having footage from other cams in the same situation...

    [UPDATE]
    Pushing around the stills and the video, they're actually more forgiving than I expected... They really aren't bad- this is the SD signal of course. The blown highlights look slightly worrying, but depend on a lot of factors. It's not hard to make a camera look bad Seeing the XL-H1 in the same room would be v interesting

    Thanks for the pics, Mikko.
    The pics quality is surprisingly poor, like others mentioned. Very odd...
    Was this a WELL lit scene (they normally are at these shows)?

    Also, the correct pic size would be 1050x576, not 1024x576, no?
    (Unless the Canon only does the 702 width analog size of course....)
