  1. Hi there,   I'm pretty close to getting an Aquatech housing for my 5D Mark 3, and was just wondering if anyone has had any experience with shooting raw in the sea/surf?   I'm kind of resigned to the fact that it might not be too practical to be shooting raw over h264 with a housing, since you have limited controls - I think the trashcan button is not catered for - but presumably you can re-assign the magic lantern button? Also just the amount of footage you can fit on a 64gb komputerbay card, and possible card problems might not be great since you don't really have the luxury of swapping out cards in the sea.     anyone had any experience with this?   cheers        
  2. 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    
  3. I've just shot a short film using the ML raw hack for the 5DmkIII. We are using a PC workflow so we transcoded the raw files into Cineform raw using GoPro Studio Premium, RAW2GPCFv113, and RAWinizer. Cineform seems like a much easier workflow than cinemaDNG, so that is what we went with. However, the resulting Cineform .mov files that come out are pretty noisy. I shot almost the entire film at 100 ISO with Canon CN-E lenses so I'm pretty sure the noise is a result of the transcoding process.   Has anyone else worked with Cineform raw? Is the noise typical or am I doing something wrong? We purchased Andrew's 5D raw guide and I didn't see any mention of this, as either a problem to avoid or something typical to expect. I assume Neat Video Pro would be capable of noise reduction while maintaining the high bitrate of Cineform raw, but is this really necessary? As it is some shots almost look unusable "out of the box" so to speak without some noise reduction. I am posting this from work so the only clip I can show, at the moment, is this one I previously uploaded for the director to see. This one isn't particularly noisy but it is more noticeable in other clips.   https://vimeo.com/76398367
  4. Hello, Everyone.   I am debating whether to jump into the Canon 5D Mark III Raw video capture world, but as I have been researching the topic and equipment further I am now wondering what kind of real world computer performance in necessary in order to edit Raw video?   I have a Mac Pro (2009) with 16gb RAM and four internal HDs (500GB for OS and three 2TB for storage).   Until now I've only edited ProRes in Final Cut 7 on my machine, and I've never had a performance problem.  Moving into Raw shooting, however, I wondering if this will change my computer performance needs dramatically.   I'm planning on editing either in ProRes or Cineform in Final Cut 7, but I wasn't sure if the higher quality files and larger sizes of shooting Raw would force me to change my setup dramatically?   I will most likely need an external backup system to handle the larger storage needs, but I was wondering if investing in a RAID system is necessary?   I was also wondering is there were any dramatic performance need difference between editing with ProRes vs. Cineform?  Does one require more power to run smoothly?   I was also wondering where my money would be better invested in updates?  If I want better performance would it be smarter to add more RAM?  Or would I be better served by buying a RAID system?     Any input on how others shooting with Raw feel is greatly appreciated.  Please don't hesitate to add comments and insights beyond the scope of my initial questions here.   Thanks so much.  I look forward to your responses.
  5. Hello, Everyone.   I am debating whether to jump into the Canon 5D Mark III Raw video capture world, but as I have been researching the topic and equipment further I am now wondering how much data storage and backup will be necessary for larger files.   With estimated calculations of Raw footage being about 7GB per minute, I wanted to ask others who are shooting Raw how much storage space are you finding you need?   Terabytes seem like they would get chewed up quite quickly, so how many are people working with?  4TB?  16TB?  32TB?  And for what size projects?  5min?  30min? 90min?   Futhermore, data storage seems like it could vary dramatically depending on what editing format you end up converting the Raw footage into.  Up till now I've only used ProRes in Final Cut, but I am also seriously entertaining cineform.  It seems to have excellent feedback for a compressed file format, and would probably save space  compared to ProRes, as the Raw>DNG>TIFF>ProRes conversion for editing would require a lot of intermediate files, and storage space.   Finally, I also wanted to ask about computer performance when shooting Raw.  Since I will probably have to invest in an external backup system to get an adequate amount of storage space, I have started to entertain using a RAID system.   Do people find they need a dedicated RAID setup for editing speed now that they shoot Raw instead of H264?   Or is a RAID setup really overkill at this point from a editing performance standpoint?   Thanks so much.  I look forward to the responses.
  6. We started off the airfield ERBACH, close to Ulm in South Germany towards the Allgäu, which is very close to the border to Austria. Places that can be seen are: Ochsenhausen, Laupheim (my very hometown), Oberstdorf, Grünten and many more - I don't recognize all the mountains and places we passed.   This was a little test filming in RAW. Nothing quite serious.   THANKS TO ANDREAS. He is an amazing pilot :)   Canon EOS 5D MK II - Continuous RAW filming at 1880x800 using Komputerbay 64GB 1000x Lenses used: EF 50mm f1.4, EF 24-70mm f.28   http://vimeo.com/69573527
  7. EMKE Hawaii recording new music in the studio!  I tagged along and tested shooting Anamorphic with my Canon 5DMKIII.  Using the different aspect ratios, I used 4:3 1600x1200.  This is perfect for my Sankor 2x Anamorphic Projection lens.  I then used After Effects to make the image fit 1080P.  Music is their original song "Open Eyes" acoustic version.   Canon 5DMKIII w Magic Lantern RAW June 3rd Build Lexar 64GB 1000x CF Card After Effects to Premiere Pro Canon 100mm Macro Sankor 2x Anamorphic Projection Lens   https://vimeo.com/68611134

  9. Greetings all, This is my first post here but I've lurked for quite some time, particularly in the anamorphic forum. I recently bought an Iscorama 36mc 1.5x anamorphic lens from another member here (QuickHitRecord) and wanted to share some of the results I've been getting.  This lens has quickly become my favorite lens!  A refreshing change from the perfect/sterile "Canon L glass look". http://vimeo.com/65643270   Camera: 75% Canon 5D Mark III (more towards the beginning) 25% Blackmagic Cinema Camera (more towards the end)   Lenses: Vivitar 28mm 2.5 M42 mount + Iscorama 36mc 1.5x Iscorama 50mm 2.8 M42 mount + Iscorama 36mc 1.5x Canon 85 mm 1.2L + Iscorama 36mc 1.5x   Adapters: Genus 77mm variable ND filter Polaroid 72mm Close-Up +1 filter (only on a few tighter shots toward the end.) More thoughts in the description on Vimeo.  What do you think? Also, I don't know how first posts are supposed to go or what's considered cheesy but I just wanted to say I look forward to becoming a more active member of the community here.  I hope to learn much and contribute where I can.

  12. Hi everybody!   Need some good advice. I've decided to buy a camera for free-lance film making.   What i need:   - 95% for film making - excellent low light performance - superb colors - maximum details in shadows - fast one - not so expensive... :)   I wanted to make also commercial-like films and short promotional clips to Hotels with girls in room or something like that for example Miss Hotel xy, etc.(dont joking...).   One of my friend mentioned me Panasonic AC90. Is it a good camcorder? Can it be better than GH3 or 5D3? Any advice can be useful. Wait for Your replies!   THANKS! (sry for my english) Balázs
  13. Hey there! Just finished up a short film for a local "make a film in a week" competition, and thought I'd share it. It won Best Director, was nominated for Best Drama, and was shot entirely on the Canon 5D MKIII with Zeiss ZF.2 glass. Let me know what you think! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XB5EBZa1qeU
  14. Well after working with the new Canon 5D Mark iii a few times this weekend I have to say for me, its a hell of a lot better hands down then any other Canon DSLR, except for the 1DX because I have not had the time with that camera to really tell. I have to wonder though about the HDMI out update that is coming. I'm now looking at buying a 5D3 soon but would like to know what you guys think this upgrade will bring. One other thing is why is in April, could we see maybe the new 7D with the same function at the same time. Will we see 60p added? Will the HDMI add more detail, I know most of you will say no but maybe Canon will add some code that will allow more detail in clean recording off the HDMI.  So if any of you care to read this is what I think of the 5D Mark 3. Im an action sports photographer and also now starting digital cinema work. I own just Canon DSLR and GoPros but I have buddy's who own other cameras and I have used them. They include the RED Scarlet and Epic, Sony FS700, Nikion D800, Canon C300, and Canon 1DX. Let me state this also off the bat, I don't believe we need 4K right now but it is coming and will be the main thing in 5 years time. Canon is going to have to step it up if they want to fight with other cameras. So first is the big fact that I was worried about, Detail. Well we all know it lacks in detail but can be sharpened up in Post to look cleaner, the clips I shot I did this on and it works great. Also I shot 1080 30p and 720 60p both in ALL-I Codec. On my 17 inch laptop the clips look fine and most people loved em. When then sharpened and put on a 65 inch LCD. I thought wow. That looks clean when sitting about 7 feet away. So really this isnt a problem to me. The RED and Sony FS700 are better no doubt but really not huge to me ( of course 4K is nuts on the RED) Also for the people out there that are comparing this to a T2i and saying its the same in good light, well kinda but once you go into post and sharpen it and color and finish. The 5D for me kills the 7D and t2i. Next would be the Camera it self, Its built like a tank in my mind. I have no problem putting it in the dirt and shooting motocross or Off Road Racing. Its feels great in the hand when shooting photos which I wont go into detail but the photos are amazing and has huge upgrades, this is the main reason for me to buy it. The focus and ISO is just wow. When shooting this weekend we had an LCD viewfinder and a 5 inch HD Screen on a DSLR Cage. Both are good but depends on you and what you are doing. The HDMI out at the current stage helps alot with focusing. For me I loved the Camera in a Cage with Screen on top that you can move around. We even said if the HDMI out is great we can get a Black Magic Shuttle and just mount it on the Cage in this set-up and then run the HDMI out to the screen and still have a small set-up for moving around.  So one other thing I want to say is that everyone is saying why get a 5D when you can get a Black Magic Cinema Camera. I'm not saying anything bad but for me the 5D is better, also I see alot of people saying its great for 3 grand, too bad its just like a RED at 3 grand. In order to get one really going it will take 6 to 8 grand in my mind to make one work. I've also seen the footage and yes while its RAW and amazing to some. I dont have time to edit RAW for every project we do and I don't have the storage for the Uncompressed. Now if Black Magic can buy Cineform or make a compressed RAW , add 60p , and fix the firmware with what much of Philip Bloom said, then I can see my self getting one.  So all in all, I love the new 5D. Its light powerful and a great film making tool when you need to run around and carry all your stuff in a back pack or travel light. The images after grading are great. Here are the full settings we used most of the time so you can get a idea. 1080 or 720 ALL-I, all 720 was upscaled to 1080p CineStyle Pic Style Our shutter was faster then most at about 1/200 or around there.  Iso was about 100 160 most of the time for film.  If you have any questions just let me know. If you disagree I would love to hear why just to get a different view on a subject.
  15. Mosaic engineering have released VAF-TXi anti-aliasing / anti-moiré filter for Canon T2i (550D), T3i (600D), & T4i (650D). Designed to cut down aliasing, moire and false detail, resulting in a much better picture. http://store.mosaicengineering.com/VAF-TXi-Moire-Aliasing-Filter_p_14.html you can see Andrew's example of the version for 5D here:http://www.eoshd.com/content/7120/canon-5d-mark-ii-mosaic-engineering-vaf-5d2-anti-aliasing-filter-review I have mine on the way, I'll let y'all know how it works ;) JG

  17. Hi all, i just came back from a trip in Japan and made this short clip about Tokyo, it was my first use of timelapse in a video and i tried to make the most of it when possible. [url="https://vimeo.com/51719933"]http://vimeo.com/51719933[/url] Hope you like it and thanks for watching !
  18. Hi, This question is mainly directed at Andrew: I've seen your tests in removing the AA filter on your 5D, and obviously, the results are sooooo much better. So the question is, do you think a third party could make a milder filter to replace the original? Isn't it basically just a piece of glass? Don't you have the connections to make this happen? Heck, Bloom has his red Kessler dolly. Time for a Reid Replacement Reticulator? (Yeah, couldn't think of a better name...) Being very serious here!
