EOS Bodies - For Video / 5d3 Timelapse. Should i lock up the mirror?
« on: March 14, 2013, 08:38:06 AM »
Hi

I'm about to make a timelapse movie (dawn, dusk and stary night) next week, using a 5d mkIII. But im considered about the helth of the machine, dont want to waste mirror count.

So i was thinking about using mirror lock up function to save the mirror mechanism.
Does it worth it? Should i be considered about the sensor (continous lights) instead? Is there any  dangers, disadvantages?

So im looking for someones experience in this field.

Thanks

Hi

I just tried the 25mm T1,5 cine version, and i was really satisfied with that one. The build the price, the picture it can make.
Yes it has no eletronics in it, and the focus ring is designed for movie-like slow but steady moves, so its a bit harder (but fluent!) to turn, than a regular photo lens.

In a fast/random changing situations i would miss the lack of autofocus, since its hard to keep in focus, especially for someone with no experience, but other cases i wouldnt think its a problem.

One more thing: of course the camerabody (5dmkIII too) couldnt communicate with the non-existing aperture motor, it asked for verifying if there is any lens attached every time i turned it on again. Not a big issue eithet.

Thanks Kankalin. When you change the aperture value on the lens using the aperture ring, does it show the changed value in camera's viewfinder, quick menu? Also did you have to do any AFMA or was I sharp out of the box.

Any information about the aperture is only written on the aperture ring (which is right next to he camera body), its impossible to check everytime.
And on the displays the camera shows 00 like when you have no lens attached to the camera.

Since the ring cannot turn around, only between the min-max aperture scale i think after a while you get to know it by hart how wide is it.
And also - as it was mentioned - the evf meter is a big help to stay in expo.

No AFMA was needed for the 5d  mkIII

Personally i would use it for videos (since the advantages are really good) BUT if i had to take pictures with this lens it wouldn't be a problem either

Hi

First of all i will just wait until April to see what comes with the firmware update, and how does the price of each product modify, maybe some new external recorder will show up, or an upgrade of these ...who knows

I have the same situation, and so far got here:

http://www.blackmagicdesign.com/products/hyperdeckshuttle/

Its also in the hdslr now post.

I didnt got the chance to try this product with any (non clean hdmi out) dslr, but i got the chance to hold it in my hand. The build, and the material of this unit is perfect. Its aluminium from one piece, it looks good, elegant, i liked it. I prefer the actual buttons over the touchscreen, and if u already have the small hd for monitoring, for this price and this i would go for the BM shuttle... when the time comes ;)

I dont see why AJA would be a better choice for MK III
im sure there will be plenty of reviews right after the firmware update, but its also important to get prepared :)

Video & Movie / Re: Indian Wedding shot with 5D Mark III

Hi

very nice video, good job on choosing the right musics, well directed shots, the audience can feel the emotions. Good job over all.

If u excuse me with some critics tough:

u have sometimes 1-2 more extra shots, and some clips are longer then it should be. Just some examples: in the beginning, glideing and moving behind the makeup shelves u have 1-2 more than it needed, also in the party u have an upwards total from the balcony -> transition -> and moving down back.
and the very last 2 clips, i think u have already made a nice defocus beggining-ending frame to the story, for me the same shot coming back again to be the very last picture, is a bit too much, it was already understandable and nicely closed picture the previous one.

(and a tipp: for the family, the muster material could be very funny without any editing after 5 years or so, just to check who looked how)

But the focus pulling, directing and compositing was very well done, i think you put a lot of work and energy into it.
