I am experiencing a problem with Adobe Premiere which destroys the quality of Canon 1D C footage. It’s a problem which has always been attributed to the camera and others like it – banding with an 8bit codec. But actually, could the software you use to edit material play a role?
In the battle of the 1080p cameras, the game has changed. Here’s how the 5D Mark III in raw recording mode compares to the best 1080p output from the Canon C300 and 1D C.
Please note: the camera is an early prototype in test mode. Don’t draw any final conclusions, this footage is just for curiosity value

With the latest PTools 3.61d there are some new anamorphic shooting and workflow options. Key to this is a big improvement to the 480p MJPEG mode that I first shot with a few weeks ago. The good news is it’s now capable of proper HD video in 4:3 and not just upscaled 480p. It also does the squeeze in-camera so you can edit the clips straight off the card without pesky aspect ratio corrections in post.
The new 44MBIT AVCHD is amazing in low light. It holds onto so much more detail at ISO 1600.
The GH1 needs careful handling and a great lens to perform at ISO 1600. You need to expose well, maybe a little over.
