Other cinematic looks can be had through the use of Cinema-Look Filters. This feature offers a choice of nine varied built-in adjustable filters which give the look of a variety of cinematic styles by compensating for the color, gamma and other aspects of the image’s quality. The looks can be previewed in the LCD display while shooting.
You can express your creative vision through nine different built-in filters to create video with a variety of professional cinematic looks. Choose from:
Tones down highlights slightly, boosts shadows slightly and adds warmth for a cinematic look
Adds a bluish tint for cool, futuristic-looking scenes
Creates bold B & W movies with high contrast and grain
Adds a magical look (soft focus) for dream-like scenes
Adds a faded, misty look to create flashback scenes
Recreates the look of old ‘70s TV programs
Gives movies the aged look of old cinema
Uses a sepia tint for an antique, faded look
Accentuates primary colors for a bright, cheerful look
The brightness of each filter can be adjusted low, medium or high, for even greater control.
Short learning curve, great HD performance
We make short video productions and needed a compact portable easy to use 1080p camcorder. The HF M400 delivered what we needed, true 1080p 16:9 aspect video having very impressive quality. The HF M400 is packed with features, yet has a short learning curve and easy to use controls. We were able to make quality full featured video clips after only a few hours practice. The internal microphone gave good quality audio in face-to-face interviews. When mounted on a tripod the 10x optical zoom gave smooth pan and zoom effects. For hand held shots, optical image stabilization gave great results. If you like to get technical, the HF M400 is packed with features described in a 200+ page manual. We are very impressed with this camcorder after two months heavy use. If you need true 1080p 16:9 AVCHD high definition video capability, the HF M400 delivers. No tape, no hard disc is a plus. All video goes onto two SD cards. Easy to switch out. Many more useful features on this cam. Excellent quality for price.
