Very nice video, and certainly makes it look like this camera has more appeal for video with the firmware upgrade!
Is that 17mm lens (for purposes of this video) significantly different than another 17mm lens (say the 17-40 or 16-35II @ 17mm)? IOW, should we attribute any great significance to your choice of lens, or did you just happen to still be experimenting with the tilt-shift lens?
Bruce - That was just the lens that happened to be on the camera when I came across a video
-esque scene and I remembered I should try out the firmware update. Was nice though. It isn't in the edited footage, but even the close focus was quite good. That lens doesn't AF and I didn't have a focus gear, so I had to guess focus by estimating the virtual image point on the superdome. I preset focus at 1.4 feet and used a PVL35.
Pretty decent corners, especially compared to many of my earlier 17-40 experiments. Depth was only about 20-feet, which contributes to the good color, without lights or filtration. It was auto-white balance at the time.
