Flattr this!

Just a few shots knocked off one Sunday when I had the camera to play around with. Just to show you don’t always need a 35mm to get nice looking shots. Even with a 1/3″ chip.

As you can tell, I like filming water!

Download the full HD 1080p version to see it at it’s best.

    Very Nice!

  2. Mikael says:

    Thanks Bloom for your review just one question, is it posible to shoot 24p in Pal land? with the HPX 301e? Not in NTSC format?

    Best Regards

  3. admin says:

    yes the 301e is a world camera so shoots everything including 24p. 24p is not an NTSC format but is often found on NTSC cameras and not Pal cameras. But this is a true multi format camera.

    Thanks Phil

    Do you know if it’s the same with the HPX 171, I will use it as my second camcoder?

    Best Regards

    I’m in Europe. I I buy the 300 (and not the 301e), is 25p and 50i on the camera or not ?


  6. John says:

    Nice shots Phil. Would you be willing to share some basic info on how you graded this short? It’s got a fantastic yellow foggy feel, which I am guessing is not entirely down to the atmospherics on the day?

  7. Scott says:

    thank you for posting the information on the new p2 300 looks very interesting. your footage is also very beautiful. i just have a couple of questions.

    1) i did not see much panning or zooming with the camera…does this camera work as a progressive 24 or does it have issues with pans?

    2) does the right side usb port come on the american version of the camera?

    3) and as john mentioned how did you do the gradation…truly beautiful

  8. pbloom says:

    Mikael, don’t know!
    Willem. If you buy the 300 you will have 24p, 30p and 60i only
    John. I used a very subtle Magic Bullet Looks grade that I created myself
    Scott. I don’t zoom with cameras really. Panning, sometimes. but this camera does not like fast pans due to rolling shutter. USB is on both version of camera.

    Great stuff. What’s the music??

    1. pbloom says:

      Erik Satie Gnossienne

  10. Sven says:

    Beautiful shots. But I wonder: where does that very visible chromatic aberration (that magenta fringe mostly found at the border of light/white objects, i.e. see water to stones at 01:15) come from? Is it the default lense? Or is the camera itself so sensitive (in a bad way)? Or did you overexpose on purpose?

    Hi Philip

      hi Tamir

      there is noise and it is evident even if you download the mp4 version of this compressed version. I mentioned it in my original review on my blog. Yes you can suppress it with tweaks in settings to an extent but compared to say the ex3 it is very noisy.

    Hello Philip,

    I recently discovered your site and have spent a lot of time enjoying your work. A Sunday in Kent was lovely! I think that you mentioned somewhere else that you were planning to discuss your use of music at sometime in the future. I’ll look forward to that but one quick musical question, what is the name of the piece by Satie that you used in this film? Also, what kind of a dolly did you use to get the move on the “Footpath” shot at the end of the film?



    1. pbloom says:

      hi David


      no dolly was used, just a pan

      i think it was gnossienne but i need to check. phil
