Popular Post Dave Maze Posted January 30, 2017 Popular Post Share Posted January 30, 2017 I had some free time today and so I went into the studio and did some tests. They aren't very proper and they aren't the best in the world...but hopefully this will help someone out there! I used some of the EOSHD Canon picture profiles for the 1DC part so check that out! I am by no means a professional colorist. I tried to balance the images best I could in Resolve. You will notice that some shots are a tad blurry....I'm sorry about that. I had continuous autofocus on. Here are my findings: Canon 1DC: It's totally still relevant. The fact that this camera came out in 2012 and is competing with the new C300 mkii is incredible. Official Canon Log: Is great. It grades really nicely and is really clean and natural looking. Totally recommended. The 4k 4:2:2 8bit is much better than the 1080p 4:2:0 of the C100. EOSHD C-Log: Its good for sure but not as good as built in Canon Log on the 1DC. I need to play more with it but I had some troubles with it. Other EOSHD profiles: These are fun! I love the Monochrome one a lot! C100: Its done. Too old. Image is soft. Has terrible artifacts. Built in codec is total crap. Get this guy out of here. Wide DR if handled properly could be a good profile to shoot most things on. Its not too flat so the low bitrate doesn't fall apart as much. C300 mkii: This is the best camera of the three (as it should be) but not by much in relation to 1DC! Canon Log and Canon Log 2 aren't very good. Canon Log 3 seems just about right as far as nailing the color science. Everything balanced really nicely and looked great. 4K 10Bit really holds together nicely when grading. I thought 1080p 12bit would be stronger...but I really didn't notice much of a difference between it and the 4k footage. Slow motion: It's OK. There are other cameras coming out that have better slow motion abilities. To go past 60fps you have to crop in on the sensor by 2x which turns the crop from being 1.4x (Super35) to 2.8! That's more than micro four thirds. hyalinejim, tomekk, Ty Harper and 7 others 10 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
