Screen captures from Day5 of Prey

These are just raw captures, they haven't gone through any color correction or anything yet.

Cassie (Kristi) in the kitchen. DwarfCam shot. It looks a little dark, but it's also only a raw capture.

Saveau (Rick) in mid-frame. This is perhaps the worst lighting on him.

Mrs. Robinson, I do believe you're trying to seduce me...

Tony points out in his blog that neither one of us saw the perfect reflection of the boom mic in the window. I might be able to digitally remove it if I get the original footage, but it's kind of a long shot.

Hell, it's still better than having an entire light (with stand) in frame.

Isn't that just a fun look? Note the bruising under her left eye?

I really like the way this came out. There is a lot of subtle lighting stuff happening here, and some not-so-subtle.

I think I need to re-do the china balls somewhat. The color correction gel is a half minusgreen, doubled up to make a full. I think I can cut it back to just a single half and have a much easier balance.

And looking at these images, I don't think that the TonyCam white balance is doing what we think it's supposed to be doing. I think it's picking the nearest preset, in this case indoor (2900°K).

Yeah, I think you're right. Hell, I even looked at the manual online again last night before you came over to verify that we were, indeed, white balancing. Personally, I think Sony is just out to taunt us.

I'm thinking that after we're done with PFD I'll auction the cam off on eBay and put the money I get for it towards a DVX-100A.

The 3CCD is nice, but honestly, I have a 3CCD camera that does fine. I don't think I can do wide angle as well, and it's physically so much larger.

But it focuses. :)

After having used Tim's DVX_100, it is a better camera for what we do. Plus true 24P. And CineGamma. And XLR inputs.

I'm still planning on holding off for that HVX-200, as long as I can stand it.
