NICE!

Glad to see the movie mode works so well.
It's definitely one of the reasons I want to upgrade to a K-7 sometime soon.

I know a lot of people may not care about it, but I think it would be a nice addition to have.

I loved the flat tire! The "Reverse H2O ones were oddly hypnotic. The camera's ability to capture the water in motion was very cool to see.

Here is a short clip I did to see how it works when I first got the camera. YouTube - Aurelia 700 in Montréal

Other than the exposure changes, you've successfully got the "commercial look" down. It looks a part of any modern commercial I would see about shoes or bikes or something.

But, if by movie look, you means looking exactly like a film movie, there is more processing that needs to be done to obtain that.

Good work!

nice videos PNTXFTW12, I especially liked the slow motion vid, i'm wondering, how much you can slow down the vdieo taken with k7 for the motion to remain smooth..

i mean if it's 30frames/s and our eyes see 24f/s so, you can make a movie 25% slower and no one will notice that it was slowed.. am I right? how much slower did you make that video with water?

6 frames from 30, down to 24 fps, is 20% slower not 25%. The H2O video looks to be slowed down by at least 50%, but also seems to have interframe blending processing (done automatically by Sony Vegas I suppose) to make it appear smoother. To a trained eye it's really more like a series of shifting still shots.

Edit: also, our eyes see much, much, much more than 24fps. Generally somewhere around 700fps, but then there's the whole thing that our eyes don't see things in frames but as excitations of nerves by light waves. 24fps is just standard film rate.
