    • 5D RAW for large screen projection of a doc?
      Did you do any post sharpening? I usually sharpen my 5D raw shots a bit in resolve, it doesn't fall apart and look unnaturally sharpened like most compressed footage does.

      Well, you can't share something that looks as nice as these and then NOT share the in-camera settings   Please, Ricardo, do share your latest settings?

    • 5D RAW for large screen projection of a doc?
      I've been having good luck setting the WB on the A7SII to the dominant light color and doing any WB tweaks in post. This was not possible with the A7S. The big issue with the A7S is magenta-green color shift depending on exposure. To really get color right on the A7S requires secondary / masked / separate shadow/mid/high WB.
    • 5D RAW for large screen projection of a doc?
      This trailer is for a feature documentary (80 minutes) I shot that was projected at three different theaters for festivals. I screened on Blu-Ray for the festivals because DCP wasn't an option for one reason or another. To qualify what I write, I made tests of DCP vs Blu Ray for another film at a theater and found that Blu Ray washes out color without losing much in resolution. I have also projected two different films at festivals occasionally on Blu Ray, one shot on 35mm and another on the Alexa. In my experience, 5D Raw has noticeably less resolution than the Alexa and 35mm (with 2K DI). It looks great on my large computer screen but the lower resolution was surprising for me once it played on the big screen. For me, it didn't seem good enough (with all due respect to what others have said), but this is very subjective. I haven't had a chance to compare it to the C300 or any lower end cameras. I still use my 5D for casual shooting, but in the future, I would try to film on the C300 for any documentaries. The C300 seem to be fine on large screens, and the ergonomics and workflow are so much better for documentary filming. The price for these cameras used are so cheap now, and they are not huge cameras. If you do go ahead with the 5D, I noticed that anything I filmed 400ASA and under held up much better. And on the positive side, you save a ton of money if you already own the camera, and the film will look great on smaller screens. No one at the festival screenings seemed to be bothered by the cinematography in our doc, and we received many compliments on it.
