new 1D C review with footages

Recommended Posts

Thanks for the review.  I own the 1DC.  It is an unique camera indeed.  It has a lot of positives.  It does have issues too, such as banding.

 

Other issues can exist too.  I did some test shots on a sunny day within a snow landscape.  Footage looked good.  Properly exposed.  Upon further examination of certain shots, I noticed many "hot pixels".   That was another issue to be aware of.  Also, certain lighting setups can lead to weird noise issues (or color shift - lots of green shadow noise). For example, on a white pillar - 1 stop underexposed shadow had green color cast - where as properly exposed adjacent white surface had perfect white).  For the most part, I really like this camera.  It is amazing.  Thanks again for your review.  Cheers.

I really want to like this camera... But my 6D is 8 bit. I've had to learn how to cheat a digital negative with Neat video and grain to compensate to the best of my ability the shortcomings of banding.. For $12k, it seems pretty lame that it's putting 255 values across 4000 lines of resolution.. I dunno... I assume there is a subliminal threshold with consumers, where it becomes hard to justify a shortcoming like that after a certain price point.. - or anything requiring the same old work arounds.

Yea agree.  They should put 10 bit.  Using this camera is fun.  The image is for the most part - amazing.  The camera needs to be put through the paces to learn where the areas of concerns crop up. Once a guy knows the limitations or what to be aware of, then a better shooting comfort level ensues.  There are a lot of variables to consider.  Cheers.

      Amazing cage with built-in follow focus wheel perfect for the a7s, Canon and Nikon cameras. It's in used condition but works great. Redrock are a quality company with excellent customer service. I've found this cage to be exceptional as a one-man-band.
