EOS Bodies / Re: Much Ado About Nothing at NAB 2014 From Canon
« on: March 26, 2014, 10:06:40 AM »

i do think Canon will have some major announcements…2014..especially in the fall

You're probably right. The c300 was released in November so it'll be 3 full years this fall.

Sounds like someone got told to keep their mouth shut for one more day until Canon could get an announcement out there.

I was really expecting them to update the c300, or show up with a cheaper C-model DSLR.

Lenses / Re: DXOMark: Samyang 24mm f/1.4 for Canon

I wonder how much this lens differs from the 24mm Cine. Is it just the same lens rehoused?  The Rokinon 24mm cine is my favorite lens on crop sensors.

video: So this thing will definitely shoot compressed 4K, and if we're lucky it will shoot 2K raw (or higher resolution in short bursts).

EOS Bodies - For Video / Re: 5D Mk3 Grainy footage. Any ideas?
« on: March 04, 2014, 09:59:50 AM »
With a late 2013 8 Core Mac Pro and 32GB RAM, I'm not really worried about my machine freezing, but rather MY inability to correctly / efficiently post-process my video files. Despite using the same custom WB, my colors just don't seem as vibrant/accurate as my stills, and despite meticulous focusing (on a tripod,m statically shooting men's volleyball), the output is not as sharp as I would expect - so if any of the more experienced can point me in the right direction for fast-action video settings and post-processing tips, I'd appreciate that.  :)

HDMI doesn't really improve the video quality much.

Canon nerfed the 5D3 pretty good to make it look appreciably  worse than their Cinema EOS line.  Your only option for increased sharpness and color is magic lantern. 

And with your shiny new Mac Pro, the work flow should be a breeze.

This is like wondering when will Apple respond to HP and Dell's workstations with a new Mac Pro (which is thankfully out now).  Just like Apple, Canon can afford to wait until they have something worth putting out. Top-of-the line might be where the "pro" reputations are made, but the money is made toward the bottom-end. So don't be too surprised that Canon takes their sweet time.

Your clip is simply underexposed. Expose it properly and you'll be fine. There's no way to fix a shot like that. And shooting All-I won't make any difference. Underexposed is underexposed. Additionally, shooting All-I is overkill for web video and the like. IPB is fine unless you're shooting for theatrical projection.

I think the banding is making the noise look worse than it actually is.  And IPB actually has less banding, so my guess is that All-I would make it look worse.

Video & Movie / Re: Jaws! Giant wave surfing action 7D and 5D3

Nice footage. Totally insane.

Remember, the c300 uses an 8K sensor and intelligently down-samples to 1080 in camera. So if we are only getting 2.5K reads off a sensor, then it's not like this "new camera" would necessarily be using as much or more image data.

Actually it's a 4K sensor downsampled in camera to 1080p.

I think i've made this mistake 100 times now.  ;D You are correct, it's 8MP or 4K.

don't care for video, don't need or want "global shutter" in a DSLR.

You still get rolling shutter artifacts (skew) when taking pictures of fast moving objects.

I'm having a hard time believing this. It seems like Canon would introduce this on their C series of cinema cameras before their regular DSLR line. Same being true with the higher resolution (2.5K) video.

It helps rolling shuttter in video:

× Small | Large


In most cmos sensors, using global shutter means a loss in dynamic range. If they do this, hopefully it will be raw, but I doubt it.

I think this rumor is just pure speculation.

The TV market is where money is made, and Canon is doing pretty well there.

But for the high end market, the c500 isn't really in the mix.

HurtinMinorKey, Don't let them drive you off! More iPhone-itis quotes (either still or video quotes are just fine), please.   & please, please, PLEASE keep quoting Ken Rockwell! (ur not Ken, using another handle, r u??) 

& I thought being stuck at home on a Friday night was going to be boring....

I aim to please/entertain/enrage. One thing i've realized over the years on this forum: nothing gets you more responses of righteous indignation than citing Ken Rockwell.  That make him a pretty powerful tool;)
