5D Mark III Raw Lowlight Test

Recommended Posts

Mostly shot on a 5D Mark III with the Magic Lantern Raw Hack with some H264 footage mixed in.  I believe I was shooting at ISO 20000. Lenses used were the Super Takumar 50mm f1.4 and the Canon 24-70m f/2.8.  The raw files were graded in Resolve with bmd film applied and exported as 444 prores.  I was very impressed at how well the raw footage looked in the low light.  With the h264 video I have to turn on a z96 LED to not get noisy footage....but its sooo soft.  It's incredible how well raw does in low light.

Hi, did you get any dead pixels? I've been having a really hard time with them at high ISO while shooting raw.

Hi Brandon, have you tried anything like Ripple Tools II's RT Cloner for dead pixels? I haven't, but I tried replicating the general idea myself in FCPX a while ago to try to get rid of some sensor dirt on a shot (with a mask on a layered clip moved slightly to the side). It didn't really work because there was a lot of camera movement in the shot so the 'cloned' area kept changing, and not always in sync with the masked area.

 

I don't have any dead pixels on my 5300 yet, but I'm concerned about what I'll do when/if I do get some...

I've used the BG Pixel Blaster, which fixes the problem one agonizing pixel at a time...

 

I'll check out RT Cloner.  Maybe it's a smidge easier.

 

Apparently Raw Therapee is supposed to be a good program for my problem (don't know about AVCHD though).  But it has an intimidating interface.  I'm gonna keep the fix within FCP X if possible.

No, I haven't experienced any dead pixels as of yet.  There was an error in my above post.  I didn't shoot over 2000.  How high of an ISO were you shooting when you experienced dead pixels?

I usually start getting dead pixels at ISO 6400.  Which is a real shame because otherwise the footage is totally usable after a little de-noising.

      Selling a excellent condition 5D Mark III with Canon 50mm f1.8, battery grip with hand strap, 5 batteries, AC wall adapter, 3 CF cards, and 2 chargers. The 5D has Magic Lantern preinstalled for RAW shooting and upgraded operating system. I can also remove the Magic Lantern if need be. The camera is only 2 years old, has been mainly used in a studio setting shooting only video, and taken extremely great care of. It has less than 6,000 shutter count and is in like new condition. The Canon 50mm 1.8 is the hard to find older model with the better focus ring. The lens is in excellent condition, with no scratches, fungus, or oil on aperture blades. Set comes with 3 CF cards, a 64gig, and two 32gig cards.  $2000 OBO

      Shot this promo back in August on a 5D3.

      Using a Tamron 24-70 f/2.8 and a Canon 70-200 f/2.8

      It was professionally graded in Baselight Studio, the colorist was very surprised when he found out what it was shot on.

      Let me know what you think or shoot a question!

      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.
      Kelly
