Well hello there EOSHD forum readers,
I've just posted my short film, Axiomatic, to Vimeo.
Shot with an older version of the 5D3 Raw hack without the audio component - remember when we had to reload the Raw modules each time after restarting the camera? Ah well...it still worked flawlessly and I cannot thank all the ML developers enough for what they unlocked. 5D3 raw is simply amazing.
Spanish, French and English subtitles are available for whomever needs them and viewer discretion may be advised as there is brief nudity, violence and coarse language. However I tried to make everything as tasteful as possible.
Hopefully you can take some time out of your busy day to view it and please feel free to share it with any of your friends or contacts that might enjoy some dark Canadian cinema.
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 !
Hey guys, just finished this one we shot in 2014 (yeah, that's a long way back). This was my second time using 5dmarkIII and RAW except this time we shot way more material. It's not very good but we got it finished so I guess that counts for something ay? Sorry about the accents, we are from Finland so our english ain't the most natural. Learned a shit ton while doing this.
If you have any questions about 5dmarkIII raw, just shoot away. Everything is upscaled to 4k here.
One of my like new Canon 5D mark iii for sale or trade here.
I am interested in matching something more like my 1DX mark ii, a 1DC or 5d mark iv
Make an offer, glad to add a bit of cash of course.
Looking forward to a good trade.
I also have a Canon 85mm f1.8 and Canon 40mm f2.8 for sale.
So we shot this one saturday afternoon, mostly 5d mark III RAW uprezzed to 4k and a bit of Sony a7s ii and a6300 shots thrown in (all 4k). A couple of DJI shots there too. This time our plot was excellent.
