I use Final Cut Pro 4.5 HD...the KHRINJ vid with the girl in all red and the rest desaturated was a couple of color correction filters to totally desaturate both green and blue and just leave the red in (a lot simpler than I thought it would be actually). I shot that vid with a Sony PD-150, one of my favorite cameras...has great weight distribution and is solid as a tank...oh, makes great images as well (if you know how to use it). I've been shooting a lot with the Sony PDX10 lately, not that I like the camera that much physically (the weight distribution is totally off and it's awkward to hold in different positions), but it makes a beautiful "native" 16:9 image (vs. the PD-150 which does not do "native" 16:9). All of my old stuff was shot with a Sony Digital8 handycam though, you can definitely tell the difference. I shot a lot of 16mm film stuff, but haven't had it telecined yet so none of that stuff is on my site. Thanx for checkin that out Eric, you know, there are a lot of things you can do in post that will make just about any video look decent. I usually will adjust the brightness and contrast first, crush the blacks a little bit, and boost the saturation a little as well. I mean, you do have to have some kind of image first though...
