RockNRollNghtClbonce the edit gets to around 1:45 (when you start using your camcorder I think?) the shots just feel a little too to me.
Just out of curiosity why don't you upgrade to a DSLR or something with a shallower DOF? Don't you have a t2i? why not use that instead?
I understand where you are coming from. You are correct in that at 1:45 I did begin using my HVX. The scene file I use for that tends to make the blacks very black...kind of personal preference and is what I feel most accurately depicts the true colors of the environment. A lot of people are used to now the 7d feel where its a little lighter and maybe more true to the color in your eyes.
You are also correct that I have a T2i. I used that in the edit as well. The backcountry stuff was all DSLR as well were the fisheye shots. The colors come out the way they do because that is how I like them. I never color correct as I like to get it right in the camera first.
Now as for why I wont switch to DSLR completely...Shooting Feel. I love the way my hvx feels and works. The audio control is incredible and gives 4 lines in post compared to the 1 that a DSLR gives even with a microphone on it. There are ND filters on my hvx which help with color control and shooting at 60 fps 1/120 shutter speed in broad daylight. I also dont have the appropriate lens' that id feel suitable having for making a full switch to DSLR. There are times and places for both cameras. Glidecaming for example...HVX weighs about 4x a DSLR and is much easier to have on a glidecam as one moves at any speed. The t2i would just flop around like a flacid...yeah. ITs all personal preference. I personally like the dark blacks and the seemingly true colors. SOme like lighter. To each their own...
