    I love my gh5, but thinking about buying a DVX100b for old time sakes (and transferring my mini-dv library)

    And yes, I keep tweaking my grading on my DVX short.

    Thanks. Great company to be in. I just put it on my Netflix list.

    This is what your film reminded me of,

    Thanks, Filmcan for the kind words. We basically shot in squeeze mode F6 23.976 on the DVX. In post in Adobe Premiere I used a 23.976 timeline and did minimal color tweaks (added contrast). The piece you just saw on Youtube was put through Filmconvert standard film style. I also dropped the saturation in Filmconvert to -85, and dropped the flimstyle grain to 7 (down from 100) In Premiere I upped the sharpness +7, bumped the RGB blue to 107 from 100, increased contrast a few points and that's about it. when I went to output I chose (from Premiere) Vimeo HD 23.976 720P. I don't think it uprezzed it as much as it preserved the quality from my original DV files, but I could be wrong. If you're going to output to DVD don't add sharpness. Hope that helps!

    Thanks, MDK! Sometimes I miss that 16mm look of the DVX, although I love my GH4.

    I have to say that that is some of the best DVX100 footage I have ever seen.

    I really liked this. Got so caught up in the story that any peceived technical short comings went out the window. The good old days when people on here told stories instead go just discussing equipment.

    Thread from the dead!
    Makes me miss the look of the DVX100 though, at least when there are no blown out highlights.

    Thanks, Kin and Anomie. I appreciate the support. I'm actually now looking into the GH2 as a stepping stone to the AF100 - just to get into HD-sd card shooting and editing workflow. i'm a bit worried about the sound recording issues though.

    I also enjoyed your short film!
    And I share the ambition of stepping up to the HMC150. I recently have started reading in the subsection of dvxuser.com that's all about that: http://www.dvxuser.com/V6/forumdisplay.php?146-HMC150. Hope to see more from you in the future!

    Although I'm lusting after the AF100, has anyone shot any shorts or features on the HMC150? Pro's or Con's? Thanks.
