  1. To be brutally honest....Most camera reviewers and early adopters do a PISS poor job of filming good subject matter and showing off the strengths of the camera being evaluated. They WASTE so much time blabbing about tech specs and and showing themselves on screen TALKING about features of the camera VS shooting something and SHOWING the features. No one wants to watch 3 minutes of a talking head and 1 minute of sample clips. Take for instance the C100...folks swear its merely a documentary camera. Below are some test shots I took for a web series I'm working on with the C100MK2. Clog with light grade upscaled to 4k. I'm betting the C200 looks even better.
  2. 5DMK3 Raw 3k upscaled to 4k. The first shots are filmed in a mirror's reflection so they are not as sharp. I really hope the C200's raw is similar to this.
  3. What's this C200B? Interesting. It's listed at $5,9999 The Canon EOS C200B Digital Cinema Camera offers cinematographers the same camera without these accessories and the EVF to optimize shooting using a gimbal, drone or a variety of other configurations. The Canon EOS C200 and Canon EOS C200B Digital Cinema Cameras sport the same 8.85MP CMOS sensor, that combines with a newly developed dual DIGIC DV6 image processing system to help process high-resolution image data and record video from Full HD (1920×1080) and 2K (2048×1080) to 4K UHD (3840×2160) and 4K DCI (4096×2160). A core staple of the third generation Cinema EOS System, this new processing platform offers wide-ranging expressive capabilities and improved operation when capturing high-quality HDR video. The Canon EOS C200 and EOS C200B Digital Cinema Cameras are scheduled to be available in August 2017 for estimated retail prices of $7,499** and $5,999** respectively. The EOS C200 comes equipped with additional accessories including the LM-V1 LCD Monitor, LA-V1 LCD Attachment, GR-V1 Camera Grip and HDU-2 Handle Unit. These accessories will also be sold separately and available in September 2017. http://www.canonrumors.com/canon-u-s-a-announces-new-canon-eos-c200-and-eos-c200b-digital-cinema-cameras-in-continued-expansion-of-cinema-eos-system/
  4. http://www.canonrumors.com/hands-on-with-the-canon-cinema-eos-c200-pricing/ As far as pricing goes, the new camera will be priced at £7,699 in the UK or $7,499 in US and is scheduled to begin shipping in July. Definitely adding this to my kit.
  5. I recommend these ND filters and filming in 2.7k vs 4k https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01MQULKJU/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  6. Canon's Duel Pixel auto focus reliability FTW. Anything else is a risk. Also most "high end pros" do multiple takes on controlled shoots with multiply angle shots so I doubt they would care about auto focus too much unless it's follow focusing on a subject moving toward or away from the camera....even then I'd only rely on Canon's auto focus. But the high enders are shooting on film, red, or arri.
  7. I'm still a little bit skeptical and would need to test it myself. After seeing these test I'm definitely going to rent one and try it out.
  8. 5D RAW upscaled to 4K 5D RAW upscaled to 4K + a few XC10 4k shots and Blackmagic pocket cinema camera shots on the bus, and car dialogue scene.
  9. That latest 4-29-17 build broke my live view preview in modes above HD. No grey scale or anything.
  10. I think there is a clog export option in the footage app. I haven't tried it and won't be able to test it for a few hours.
  11. Indeed. The image quality has really spoiled me on what's currently out there now. The 4k at 12fps is spectacular....it is an absolute tragedy as to what these canon dslrs are capable of.
  12. What was your resolution setup...lol this motivated me to go out and test the 4k resolutions.
  13. Try the new Footage App developed by one of the magic lantern forum member martinhering. You can get the latest version here. https://rink.hockeyapp.net/apps/3ed6ecf60e684239a6aba3d407cf3935/app_versions/77 There isn't real time playback yet like MLRawViewer but you can quickly scrub the timeline and export the dng or mov files. Also, you may get more than 12 minutes by shooting in 14bit lossless raw.
  14. 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.
  15. I don't think it can. It should only limit you to 4GB clips.
  16. Finally got around to editing some clips together.
  17. This video is absolutely fantastic!
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. 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
  21. 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
  22. I'm in 1.13 and getting pink colored fames using MIRaw Viewer....but it's only with the 14bit lossless setting enabled.
