iPhone 4 Camera: Test on Colors Outside

I have been out of town for a while networking, going to the NHL Draft for another blog and waiting in line for iPhone 4. I took some time after appointments to test the iPhone 4 camera at a place that had all sorts of different colors, lighting and movement. What better a place than Disneyland? In this piece I was mostly trying to see how all the colors would be taken in without any correction. Red. Check. Orange. Cool. Yellow. You get the idea. Please watch in 720p to get a better idea of the colors.

Here is another I shot in a backyard of my son singing the SNL short throw it on the ground.

Don’t Fear the Default: YouTube in Compressor

Youtube

I’m not usually a fan of deafult settings. I can personalize a project or a preference to be easier to use or to speed things up. In this case I want to talk about trying the default items out. I’m a big fan of some of compressor’s default settings. One in particular is the YouTube compression. This was added in Compress

or 3.5 I believe. Just go into compressor, just like you already do, and do a search for youtube in the presets. Select that option and submit away. You get a really nice image up to 720p. It’s an H264 image that is about 3.6 GB per hour. Give that a shot and see how it helps your image.
