If you're a subscriber and have been following our channel bulletins, you'd know that STUDIO DELTA had lately been engaging in plans to purchase new camcorder equipment - particularly one that is capable of 1080-24p video.

Since the Canon HG10 had a hard drive and no need for tapes or other such media, I was able to begin filming some test footage right away. This is the end result. I played with the focus in several shots and usually left the exposure at auto. This was my first time filming footage with this camcorder; I will probably make more use of the camcorder's tweaking options later on. Some colour correction was done for this video - I have a bigger focus on making this video actually look nice and natural, than to use the video footage without any colour correction - I don't think I'll ever be leaving my footage without correction of sorts.

This video was shot with the Canon HG10 camcorder with no additional accessories except for tripod. I have ordered a wide angle lens & lens hood, and will be proceeding next with UV filters and an external shotgun microphone, as I get more cash to spend for it. I'm working on a DIY steadicam as well.

Nothing else I can say about this - sit back, and enjoy the footage!

NOTICE ABOUT THE CANON HG10 AND 24P VIDEO: Many reviews have stated that the HG10's 24p video was unusable. This is false. The reviewers may have had trouble removing the pulldown from the AVCHD file format. Tthe HG10 shoots 24p in a 60i container with pulldown, however the frames aren't accurately flagged - if you don't know what "pulldown" is, google up "3:2 pulldown". There is a way to PROPERLY remove the pulldown with free software, which results in a pristine, high quality 1080x24p video file that is ready for editing in editors such as Sony Vegas. Follow the tutorial here: http://eugenia.queru.com/2008/01/04/c.... I am planning on creating a more detailed video about the process.

Many have also turned away from the HG10 (i.e. vs the HV20, HV30 or HV40) apparently due to the use of AVCHD which, although WILL require a more powerful computer for decoding/encoding, is a more efficient codec that will capture equal or higher quality video compared to using HDV tapes, despite a lower bitrate of 15MB/s vs. 25-30MB/s for HDV.
