If I didn't know any better, I would've guessed this was shot on a 5D3 with a neutral picture profile. Dynamic range, tones, etc look virtually identical. I don't see any difference besides the resolution.

It doesn't look as detailed as it should out of a 4k camera. You are probably right - 5D3?

even though the guy got given a pre production camera, just like most of the guys who got gh3's, he probably hasn't got a clue how to get the most out of it.

Well, this is realy expensive piece of hardware so it should generate much better image than for example GH3 which we know from GH3 pre-production units. Hmm.

I'm letting the camera off the hook here.

The fault is with the shooter.

He was using ridiculous shutter speeds like 1/250 or 1/1400 with no regard to ND filters. 180 degrees should be 1/48 for 24p.

That is going to heavily reduce the cinematic look unless his shots are locked down - but he was shooting tons of motion so you really notice.

The guy also needs a proper handheld rig. It felt like the camera was given to a monkey on several cups of coffee who had been accidentally let lose inside a car and on a race track. So much jittery framing going on.

The gradation and tonal range was lumpy and his contrast was poor, mainly due to LOG and not grading it properly... But I have to say that is partly down to the camera as well, not giving that smooth transition between tones and again it all looks very 8 bit now I am use to 12bit raw for my $3000 :)

4K and a large full frame sensor are a kind of magic.

The rest of the camera is your standard Canon DSLR fare. It has moire too.

Wait... All the shots say they were shot at 1080p. Did anyone notice some of them that were 4k? If it's just shot in 1080p it's going to just look the same as the 1DX right?

ZERO motion blur. I blame Private Ryan... But that's personal taste. I really have to dig to find any footage of any camera that has a smooth motion blur to it. They all have the "stuttery" look. ..and some people just manage to take $15,000 cinema cameras and make them look as video as possible, lol.

Definitely has a special look.... Not excatly filmic, but not video either.

Supposedly shot with Canon lenses. Theses lenses have a certain look. Other lenses may or may not give a different look??? Also, it was graded in a certain style. It does have a filmic feel to it. It'll be interesting to see more footage as it becomes available once the camera is officially released.

to be honest, with the production values on this piece you could get equal results from any current dslr with 1080 capability. this aint 3-4 guys playing with a hdslr, this is a full commercial budget short that cost probably as much as a 30 minute bbc drama. looks nice though

Here's a C500 video, mostly forgotten. The 1DC should give a comparable image.

I swear Canon should stop giving "cinema" cameras to photographers to shoot video. Seriously, that video is indeed a monkey on caffeine! And WTH with those shutter speeds? I think we're done with the super short DOF, but in those shots? And no stabilization? Damn shaky shots making me sick. No wonder Canon is going down. How about getting real cinematographers behind the camera instead of photogs?? Forget LaForet, the guy is a one off. No photog can compare to real cinematographer.

lol. yeah, maybe with the proper incentive, we'll see Roger Deakins shoot on a C500. The Red One MX still looks better.

Why the doesn't Canon at 10 bit?

Should read:

Why doesn't give at least 10 bit instead of 8 bit?
