yes...here in Australia I (and many of my friends and viewers) have problems watching Vimeo, especially at certain times of the day (3-7pm for me) I have spoken to Vimeo support staff and they had me use a tracker to see the route and identify the bottlenecks...turns out Vimeo doesn't play nicely with my ISP's service...but it doesn't play nicely with many ISP's here in Oz unfortunately.
New camera release timeline in the blogosphere
weeks leading up to new product announcement:
it's going to have internal 4k RAW sampled from 200MP sensor! no pixel binning! DR is somewhere in the vicinity of 40 stops! has 50 XLRs! Data rates are out of this world! Slo-mo to beat Phantom Flex! Picture quality/skin tones as good as Alexa! (or if it IS an Alexa...better than their last one!) Weighs next to nothing! Batteries last a week and cost 5 cents each!
Sony/Panasonic,/ Blackmagic/ RED/ Alexa/ Canon have just released the AF50s7 Warhammer Mini! RRP 20 cents*! (*viewfinder, handle, buttons, power cable, shoulder mount, case available as optional items)
next four months before product is actually available:
selling all my Canon/ Panasonic/Red gear to buy this now! sight unseen!
gamechanger! DSLR killer!
arguments develop over proposed specs and likelihood of them being true
arguments develop over whether said new camera is overpriced/underpriced or just right
fanboys of all makes go to war
on product release:
400 videographers/cinematographers trip over each other to be "the first" to put footage online, local councils report high rates of congestion at pools, ponds, parks and other public spaces and ban filming without permits anywhere
look at my new camera! it's the best bang for buck ever!
I can shoot focus pulls of roses/ducks/geese/dogs/cats/people and see the shadowy bits and the sunny sky...in super slo-mo!
I shot my feature movie/doco/music vid on it and it's the best!
fanboys of all makes go to war over perceived value for money/picture quality etc
a little while later:
I don't like the colour of the case, I don't like the way it sits on my shoulder, I don't like the menu structure, I wish it had more stops of dynamic range, my batteries only last me 6 days...and so on
I'm hoping v2 of the firmware will fix everything that doesn't work properly yet
When is Sony/Panasonic,/ Blackmagic/ RED/ Alexa/ Canon going to release MKII of this? it better have...(insert higher spec of everything here)
I hear NAB will have some pretty exciting news this time...can't wait! so ready to move on from this camera!
The other way to do this sort of thing in Premiere is to export your footage as a sequence (TIFF, JPEG or PNG) choosing a lowish frame rate (Premiere offers 1,5, 6, 7.5, 8, 9, 10, 12, 12.5 and so on) then import that sequence as a clip into a 25p (PAL) or 24p or 30p (NTSC) timeline...virtually what is happening in the export is frames are being dropped giving it the look of a traditional timelapse achieved by using stills sequence shot from camera...resolution is less tho' as the camera is shooting in video mode so only 1920x1080 unless using a 4K capable camera
Another important benefit of the Canon DIGIC DV4 processor is Full HD recording in both the high-quality professional format AVCHD or the popular web-friendly MP4 format at a variety of bit rates (up to 28 Mbps and 35 Mbps, respectively), resolutions, and frame rates (up to the smooth look of 59.94p) to suit practically any production need.[iii] For special-effect requirements, slow and fast motion MP4 recording at up to 1920×1080/60p can also be performed.
Canon just signalling that their DSLR's are primarily for stills shooters with their Cinema line for video shooters...but when will they add the functionality that ppl want (higher frame rates, 4k) to their lower end C series?
@ Cary - might it more be a case of there actually being a one frame gap between separate 4GB video clips - theoretically there should be no gap but I have read (and experienced with my Canon cameras at times) that unless you join them properly (not just drop them on a timeline and transcode) that there can be a dropped frame gap. I have been using the cmd prompt method of joining files on my PC.
Having said that recently I did a 4 camera (2 Canons, BMCC and a GoPro) shoot of an opera and had no problems in PluralEyes....go figure!
@ Alex - the job before the opera shoot was a 3 camera (2 Canons and BMCC) shoot of a 2hr big band concert where the audio was lifted straight from the sound deck to a Zoom recorder and had all sorts of problems with PluralEyes...BMCC seemed to be the culprit with audio drifting by about 2 secs by the end of the concert footage...BMCC was continuously running except for intermission so 2 clips.
PluralEyes also had trouble with a number of the Canon clips possibly because I had renamed them for ease of editing and they then came in not in chronological order...I had ticked the box for allowing PluralEyes to reorder the clips but it still struggled...did you allow PluralEyes to reorder the clips?
