  1. Was on a makeup shoot the yesterday and decided to test how well I could use the 3K Raw mode on a job. The primary camera was the C100MK2 and after I captured the main shots I broke out the 5DMK3 to experiment. I captured about an hour worth of footage in 3K. Resolutions higher than HD are not recommended on productions until the liveview is fixed. You can only effectively shoot static shots or shots that move but stay within a fixed depth of field range as the choppy grey/color liveview is nearly impossible to use to follow focus on moving subjects.
  2. I don't think it can. It should only limit you to 4GB clips.
  3. Finally got around to editing some clips together.
  4. This video is absolutely fantastic!
  5. No moiré patterns, better low light performance, more camera shooting agility than the Blackmagic cinema cameras, and the ability to record to CF cards with possibly smaller files with 14-bit lossless compression. Once they fix optimize the live preview for the 2k-3k resolution ranges and implement mlv audio, i'm probably going to make that my primary narrative capture format.
  6. Not at it's current level of development. All I need is a real time color preview while shooting and a continuous 3k or 2k recording format implemented like the 1080 HD MLV format and could take it from there.
  7. Here are a few more test screenshots. I use 10x zoom to carefully check focus. The images are spectacular. Im only getting about 38 frames @3072x1660 and about 250 @3072x1308. Crop Mode: 3K 1:1 RAW Video: 3072x1308 Aspect Ratio: 2.35:1 ISO: 1600 14-bit lossless ML Version: 1.1.3 Canon 70-200mm f/2.8 II Crop Mode: 3K 1:1 RAW Video: 3072x1660 Aspect Ratio: 1.85:1 ISO: 1600 14-bit lossless ML Version: 1.1.3 Canon 40mm f/2.8
  8. Thanks finally I can see what I've been recording an it is awesome. Here is a sample dng file below a screenshot: Crop Mode: 3K 1:1 Raw Video: 3072x1152 @2.67:1 14-bit lossless Screenshot of Sample DNG Sample DNG M02-1203_000000.dng
  9. I'm in 1.13 and getting pink colored fames using MIRaw Viewer....but it's only with the 14bit lossless setting enabled.
  10. If this isn't an April Fools joke I'll hold back on getting a GH5 for further review of the 5D4.
  11. They just confirmed that it's coming. They also say that Canon "has been looking at ways to “improve” the 4K video capture crop". http://www.canonrumors.com/c-log-coming-to-eos-5d-mark-iv-confirmed-cr3/
  12. I would also include: 1 spare Wasabi Power Batteries for C100 - $30 and your good to shoot all day long. 1 Z96 LED light(on camera light) - $70 2x NP-F970 Battery + DC01 Travel and Car Charger Adapter - $45 Total: $5037
  13. If the budget is only $5000 i'd recommend this kit. Canon C100 MK1 - $2499 Sigma 70 - 200mm f/2.8 - $1299 Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 - $799 Rode Videomic Pro - $229 SanDisk 128 GB Extreme Pro - $66 Total: $4892
  14. When properly exposed it does look every bit as good...even wide dynamic range looks superb. The C100mk2 is $4000 and the 5D3 is under $3k so that's why I haven't really tried to mention it much. I don't have the C100mk1 but i hear it also has a great image just a different color cast. I still cannot rank it's image as higher than a raw image due to post flexibility of 8bit vs 14bit. Audio can be record while shooting in raw with the via MLV by enabling the MLV audio module. The locking up issues are often caused by having to many modules enabled, card filling up while recording, card speed dropage or a battery issue. With my configuration don't get any locking up issues. Usability wise the C100mk2 is comprehensively no question much better to use.....better than any dslr form camera I think if you don't need stills. It's my favorite video camera to shoot on and makes me want to by a C300mk2. I did have my c100mk2 lock up on me 2 days ago where I had to take the battery out and reinsert it to get it back functioning while shooting..it was a 3rd party battery.
  15. Was this originally shot in 4K or HD. I decided to upload some more footage from mine. I'm still happy with it's performance and I don't shot clog anymore with it.
  16. I own both cameras as well and definitely think the 5D3RAW image is more impressive looking. I think the C100mk2 looks sharper overall due to it not being a full frame camera and not having a filter on it like the 5D3 has which needs post sharpening. Below are some 5D Raw dng files with a graded versions.
  17. No...that was an oversight. I added the GH5 to the top of the list after I finished the post and reread the OP and saw the part about ignoring camera release date.
  18. 1. GH5 2. 5D3 RAW 3. BMPCC + Speedbooster + IR Cut Filter 4. BM Micro + Speedbooster + IR Cut Filter 5. BMCC + Anti Aliasing Filter + IR Cut Filter 6. C100mk 1 7. Sony a7s/a7s2/a7r2 8. GH4 + Speedbooster 9. 5DMK 4 10. XC10 Also to note: This list is just pure image quality via cameras I've had experience with (EDIT: except for the GH5). Usability and workflow speed would totally change this list up. The XC10 captures really good images in good light only. It's 4k is similar to a C300mk2 in well lite situations. The 5DMK4 is pretty good in 4k as well. You just need fast lenses(f/1.2-f/1.8) in low light and a Tokina 11-16 for anything wide.
  19. My assessment as well in regard to the C100. It's not a done camera....especially the C100MK2. It captures very sharp HD images that are very cinematic looking and upscale well to 4k. I did enjoy this test though and I have my eye on picking up a 1DC. I would love to see a comparison of the 4k from the XC10 on a day scene with the 4K from the C300MK2. I bet they would be really close.
  20. I'm still enjoying getting use out of mine. Close Up - C100MK2 Wide - XC10 HD Band - 5DMK3 Regular HD I didn't have enough card space to shoot in 4k at this even but the footage from the XC10 in hd turned out pretty good with no ghosting.
  21. Thank you Luke for these files. They are really nice. With proper node work you can push these file around quite a bite in resolve.
  22. Good choice. I went with the mini 4 bay SSD version but i'd like one of the 16tb versions because they are great bang for your buck.
  23. That's the Blackmagic Pocket Cam. I really love both cams...XC10 has a feature and ergonomic usability advantage over the pocket. The pocket has 10bit prores out of the box and RAW in a portable package. I love both images but I feel the pocket is more cinematic with it's movement. I will say this....IF i had to pick only one to shoot a feature on I would probably grab the XC10 before the pocket simply due to it's built in features...ND filters, 5 axis stabilization, auto focus, better scratch audio, slomotion, 4k, and wireless monitoring. I would simply need to light my shots and I could get more done with less....wouldn't need a ronin to get stable shots, it's low profile, good battery performance, has a great adapter for shooting in the sun, can hand hold in a car and get stable shots etc. Even though I think the pocket's image is better....it's occasional moire, IR pollution, abysmal battery life, bad audio preamps and need for rigging make it a less compelling tool to shoot with in dynamic situations. Also I think you to get the best image out of the pocket you NEED a speedbooster on it.
  24. Modified EOS Standard Sharpness +4 Contrast -4 Color Depth -4 ISO 1600 Lighting = Back light from tv and 1 z96 LED at about half power @ about 3 1/2 feet away. I did the same shoot with CLOG and visible ghosting appeared.
