Random HD Clips

A random collection of videos I’ve gathered over the past few days with my new high-def camcorder. It’s partly to test YouTube’s newish support for HD videos, and partly to show off some high-resolution randomness.

Detailed info

The camera is a Sony HDR-SR12E. This records interlaced video at 1920×1080. I had to scale the video down to 1280×720 for YouTube. Because the video is interlaced at 25 frames/sec, when deinterlacing and keeping both fields you can get 50 FPS video. The camera has a “Smooth Slow Rec” feature which lets it record at 100 FPS for 3 seconds. Again, when deinterlacing, you can expand this to 200 FPS (1/8x speed!) without losing any frames. However, the video quality is not so high when using Smooth Slow Rec.
