  1. Hello, I am new to this forum (first post) and beginner filmaker and I will need advice ... Last June I started shooting for my documentary project on the local natural heritage, for now with my own money, so my gear is rather light... I'm shooting with a Canon Eos 70D DSLR, outdoor, and i'm shooting the natural spaces of a valley (along a river). At the start I wanted to film in RAW with Magic Lantern, but with my 70D i'm stuck in 720p (for a continuous recording), so finally i've shot in a compressed way, Mpeg-4 All-I 8bit 4:2:0 @1080p 29.97fps with a picture style (EOSHD C-LOG (0,-4,-4,2)) + Vari ND Filter, hoping to get myself out of it even in post-prod ... But here the quality of the images, in a context of shooting outdoors in shaded places very contrasted (...), do not satisfy me ! So I would like to have advice to achieve a higher quality outdoor shots (natural light)? To illustrate my purpose you can see these few shots that I graded in Resolve + corrections in After Effects: https://vimeo.com/alexandrewebercom/riviereardeche The third shot is particularly ugly ... - Have I "pushed" the mpeg-4 too far by color grading it or is it simply the limitations of this compression? - How do I do with hyper contrast scenes (it was about 14h when shooting)? - Am I condemned to film in RAW whatever the chosen camera (to be able to uncork the blacks or to recover in the whites in post-prod)? - Is it better that I under-expose or over-expose this type of scene? - Can you suggest gear/ configuration more suitable for my use: Camera, Raw / Prores, Log, external recording ... ? Thanks a lot !
  2. Hello all! I would like to preface this post by saying that this is actually my first time on these forums, so thanks in advance for this awesome community. Also, I'm somewhat of an intermediate filmmaker, and you can check out my YouTube channel to see where I'm at (youtube.com/thisisrmm). As with the title of this post, I'm trying to figure out where my money would be better spent, upgrading to a 70D or buying more lenses? I have my own personal pros and cons for both, but first, here is what I currently shoot with: Canon t3i w/ Magic Lantern Canon 18-55mm (kit lens) Canon 50mm 1.8 I've set aside a budget of $1000 to make upgrades, so I'm not sure where my money is better spent. Reasons for upgrading to the 70D: - I eventually plan on upgrading to full frame in the future; not sure if buying desired lenses made for APS-C's like my t3i (Tokina 11-16mm) is worth the money if I'm upgrading - I can stick with this camera for longer, with it being a full frame (not having to worry about crop factors and what not) - From my own research, a better camera overall Reasons for buying lenses: - I'm pretty run-and-gun with my setup, so I've been somewhat relying a lot on the kit lens, which definitely helped me learn a lot about DSLR video, but I'm looking to take a step up in the category - Lenses definitely outlast cameras, so I figured that might be a better investment considering that I have this kind of budget set aside Cons for 70D: - If I buy this camera (body-only), the only compatible lens I'll have is the 50mm f/1.8 until I can afford to buy my desired lens of choice (Tamron 24-70mm f/2.8) Cons for buying lenses: - If I buy the Tamron 24-70mm, it'll be in somewhat of a weird crop for me to use with my t3i - If I don't settle with the Tamron, I'm somewhat lost on what lenses to buy within my budget that would work well on APS-C and eventually full frame whenever I make the upgrade I'm sorry for the lengthiness of this post, but just looking to provide as much detail as possible. Thanks to anyone willing to help a new guy out! Best, thisisrmm
  3. Hi, I am really confused between which camera i should buy. Normally do Landscape Photography and Videos(25%). Have gone through many reviews about camera and lenses and finalize these combination : Sony a6000 + SEL 18-200 Canon 70D + 18-135 STM All three above setups are costing me Equal! I will add a 10-18 STM later on if i go with 70D. Please advise in which setup i should invest. PS: Coming from a 1000D and a P&S which i use for HD Videos
  4. Wanted to share: I just recently shot this new music video by Bay Area musician Jeff Campbell, "Save Me," shot on the Canon 70D with only the help of tripods and a monopod. Black and white, flares galore. The camera was great, through and through. Had much tighter focus than my 7D. Have a watch:
  5. Hi I'm a completely new to the dslr video world but I'd like to get started. Checking out the reviews online and what fits what I'm willing to spend I think I narrowed it down to the Canon 70D or the Nikon D5300 I just plan on getting a body and then purchasing a sigma 18-35mm 1.8f lens and a good shotgun mic. I've been waffling back and forth as to which one to get. The 70D is a better all-around camera and a class above the D5300 in it's , touch screen UI, better build quality, weather resistant, quieter, autofocus that's actually somewhat usable, good low-light performance, better live view simulation and controls, better features for still photography. The D5300 however has some nice advantages as far as video goes, slightly better low light performance, virtually no moire, better dynamic range, headphone jack to monitor audio, and ability to output uncompressed HDMI, and from videos I've seen the image quality does look slightly better especially when filming people the D5300 shows the subjects skin texture & pores a lot clearer compared to 70D where it's a bit blurred How in the world do I choose? I would love to eventually get a Blackmagic 4k camera down the road if I can get good enough to make some money with this, not sure if that would have a bearing on what camera and lenses to get now. Thanks for any input.
  6. I currently own a 5D Mark II and love it but looking to expand to something with more video features like 60p. I love the image quality of the 5D and have considered getting selling my mark 2 and getting a Mark 3 but it's still pretty over my budget. Then someone had suggested I get the 70D, because it has the best video features of any of the canon DSLR's and also can act as a backup body for my 5D mark II which I can then keep. Will the 70d give me just as good video image quality as my current 5D Mark II? Or should I wait and keep saving up to upgrade to a 5D Mark III?
  7. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TuEtZb3ZNLA   Just find a youtube that may be worthwhile to discuss. Everyone should know that 70D might be another chance of shooting raw video after the ML installed 5Dmk3. However, the video shows that the buffer for shooting raw image is about 34 shots and getting slow after 22th shots w/ Sandisk Extreme Pro @ max 90MB/s write. By estimation, the result means the internal buffer for 70D might be about 5XX MB. Do you thing it is enough for the shooting raw video or it reflects the writing speed for 70D is still under limitation? It looks better than 60D but not much. I still doubt that 70D can't be raw video shooter even ML is able to support the camera.   Let's discuss
