"sports video"


Arlington, US
          

Anyone use the slow mo video to shoot sports? I guess you can only shoot for a few seconds, but I could see this being a lot of fun. Just ordered mine. Plan to take it along to the next DC United match and see what happens. I have seats right at field side so it should be bright enough to get some results.

When you shoot the high speed shutter and get 30 frames or whatever before the buffer fills, how do you turn those frames into a short video? Is there software included? Or does it capture in a video format of some sort?

So I had a chance to shoot some local soccer games last night with the V1. It actually took quite good photos in still mode. I set it to the auto scene mode and it did a pretty good job. Mainly I was using the 30-110 lens.

I shot some slo mo (400fps) video. It was hard to frame though with the ultra widescreen this mode goes into. And with that zoom lens any time the action came close it was impossible to frame well. So it will take me some practice. The lights in the park were not real strong either so the flicker is very pronounced. I bumped ISO up to 1600 which helped a little.

My issue at the moment is that I also shot some regular video in the 720p mode. It plays back perfectly fine in the camera. But when I try to play them on my computer the video is very choppy while the sound is normal. I tried using View NX2, VLC, QuickTime, RealPlayer...all had the same issue. So I am trying to figure out what is going on. I thought it might be a something to do with viewing via the memory card but even when I copied the file to the desktop I had the same trouble. Ideas?

Looks like the problem is just my laptop. Maybe the video processing isn't very good? My desktop plays perfectly fine and after uploading to YouTube the videos looks fine there as well.

I've tried slo-mo in a few places like the beach or a foosball game. The quality is a little too low for me. And getting the timing down is very difficult.

There isn't software included to stitch frames into a movie but there is software out there that does like Photoshop, iMovie, and Quicktime I believe.
