Cinematographic look: 5D3, MosaicFilter, GH2, or FS100

26 posts in this topic

questech: i don't doubt there's more noise, but for me, the gains in other areas are worth it. and for the most part, in well lit scenes at mid to low iso's, the difference to the average person is negligible. for doing comparison shopping though, for the price range i don't think you can go wrong with the gh2. especially now that the gh3 is out and gh2 prices are dropping

Absolutely astounding. Doesn't get more cinematic than that. It's awesome how people in the Reduser forum were fooled into thinking it was film until the colourist herself confirmed that it was 5d.

This is a great example that equipment is probably the least factor in the mix.  Any of these great cameras we speak about here could get the same results; it's the director and the production team, and the great actors and settings that support a great story (script) that makes a work truly cinematic.

 

If you substituted a GH2, an AF100, FS100, BlackMagicCam, Red... the average audience would never be able to tell the difference (unless blowing it up on a gigantic screen of course) because they would be to enthralled with the action and the beautiful scenery and the story.

 

Now if you took the best operator and a great 35mm film camera and put him in a grey/beige training room with no light other than the overhead fluorescents and limited space to move the camera and he had to shoot a very boring speaker describing a very dry, overly technical issue that the audience doesn't care about... and it will look like @#$%*&

 

This is a beautiful piece!

ML hdr?

Good colour grading is extremely important to achieve a good look, both on digital and film, and most DSLR footage around hasn't been professionally graded. Plugins like Magic Bullet get you somewhere fast, but still a long way from proper color grading by an experienced colorist. This video is a good example.

      Right now on BH the fs100 with a free metabones EF adapter (after rebate) is only 2500. I've been using a 5d mark ii for the past 4 years as my main camera and although I still love it, it is a pain to use sometimes in a corporate video/documentary environment. 
       
      I figure the fs100 at this price with an adapter that will work with all my current glass seems like a great deal for the type of work I've been doing lately. 
       
      anyone own one and have some thoughts?
    • Nikon D800 14.4 stops of dynamic range?
      By Birk Kromann
      According to DxOMark the dynamic range of the Nikon D800 is a whopping 14.4 stops. I have no problem believing that it is not the same as the Alexa and that the Alexa's 14 stops are calculated differently.
      It is interesting though that the Canon 5D Mark III only scores a mere 11.7 in the same test, making it almost a half stop less than the 6D (currently the best performing Canon DSLR in the dynamic range category) and 0.2 stops lower than the Mark II

      Nikon D800:

      Does anybody else find this a bit peculiar? Especially since the 5D is the "go to" DSLR for filmmakers, heck I even own one my self.
    • Down by the river
      By Rob Bannister
      Shot over the past few years when we go home to Salisbury NB. This is down by the river where the children play. WE have such a good time hanging out with friends and family here. Big thanks to everyone who comes out to see us while we are home.
      Shot on the Nikon D800 and D4 with the Dog Schidt Optiks FF58 Q1.5 Amber lens, Iscorama 1.5X anamorphic and other Nikkor lenses.
       

       
    • 5D Mark III Raw VS FS100 AVCHD
      By QuickHitRecord
      I have not seen this comparison yet so I decided to test it out.
       
      I tried to match the shots and then colors as closely as possible, setting the look with the raw footage (starting from BMD Color Space) and then trying to conform the AVCHD to it. The severity of the grade was moderate:
       
      5D Mark III (Raw DNG)
       

       
      FS100 (w/ Frank Glencairn's G-Log Ultimate)
       

       
      And here is where the codecs really show their differences:
       
      5D Mark III
       

       
      Sony FS100
