EOS Bodies / Re: Canon Announces the Cinema EOS C100 Mark II
« on: October 22, 2014, 01:06:30 AM »
this is just the mark I with 60fps and auto focus update. no thanks canon. and as to why this has to do what 5d4, if canon is so conservative with its cinema line, the 5d4 has zero chance of getting 4k

And if there were to be a new model, what are the chances that it will be < $10000?

probably zero. otherwise they wouldn't want to squeeze their own cheaper model.

Lenses / Re: 24-70/2.8 Canon or Tamron: Which did you choose and why?
« on: February 01, 2014, 12:14:15 PM »
got the tamron because VC was a huge bonus for video. no brainer really. sharpness for stills was excellent as well.

only complaint is that both zoom and focus rings turn in the opposite direction.

EOS Bodies / Re: Hybrid Viewfinder Coming To Canon DSLRs? [CR1]
« on: January 15, 2014, 02:02:01 PM »
I'd love to think that the hybrid viewfinder would help video, but I wonder if it would hurt more than it would help?  Any filmmaker would want the camera to be far more mobile than having it perpetually affixed to one's eye, and imagine how hard it would be to keep the camera steady with the viewfinder up to one's face, and change settings at the same time!  Granted, it would definitely help those of us who use our cameras as the functional equivalent of a camcorder (I know I do sometimes), but I don't think it'd be a draw for professional videographers, who use external monitors anyway.  I still want to see what Canon would do with a hybrid viewfinder though, it sounds fascinating!

the viewfinder definitely helps video. having a third point of contact for handheld video improves stability immensely. just imagine taking a photo by holding the camera out with just your hands, vs the normal way of putting it against your eye. the improvement in stability is the same for video.

even pro videographers need to go handheld sometimes, and a rig is not always an option for doc/event shooters. I would be a lot more interested in the 7D2 with a hybrid viewfinder.

CL is the best method I've found. just test it in person and I've never had a problem. the prices also tend to be the best.

I've bought some vintage lenses from ebay too. only once did the lens have a slight dent in the filter threads, but returning it was almost as much as the lens so I just bought another one.

good stuff. one thing really jumped out at me though.

I know that you are trying to do some shots in 60fps for slow mo and on a canon you are pretty much forced into 720p, but the h.264 720p has just horrible quality, and it looks extra bad alongside raw. the biggest shock was the cut from the nice raw wide shots outside to the super blurry glidecam shot of the entire family standing.

that's my biggest gripe but otherwise a very solid piece!

I'm making another 3 video editing, and at this exact moment I am doing the conversion of files to apple pro res, too bad it can not be edited directly, right?

premiere will allow you to edit without transcoding

you need to try ML RAW with your 5D3, that brings back tons of detail

that is true. the workflow and storage is of course another matter.

nice work, and I can see the passion you have for this video.

for landscape video, I would suggest you check out Panasonic GH3 (or even hacked GH2) when you get the chance. it resolves an amazing amount of detail at 1080p, much better than my 5D3. it is really night and day compared to the 6D at 720p. the 6D is good at some other things, but not landscape work.

•Video features are said to be limited by marketing

guess I was right to move away from canon, aka the crippler

this would be great if it wasn't limited to the stm lenses...

Lenses / Why no lenses like 35-135mm anymore?
« on: June 16, 2013, 05:35:01 PM »
often I wish there was a lens like 35-135mm f2.8. there are many situations where I don't need to be wide or telephoto, but there's no time to switch 70-200 to 24-70, for example.

I know these zoom lenses existed once upon a time. but as far as I know there isn't a pro f2.8 version of such lenses. anyone knows why no one seems interested in making these?

my bet is on the magic lantern 5d3 raw hack. it's a huge thing in the video world and is surely pushing up demand

Hi! Since most folks on the CR forum only seem to care about FF and such, I am afraid they will advice you to get a bigger, stronger improved wife that can lunge around at least two Eos 5D MarkIII's with a bunch of f/2,8L zooms... ;)

lol @ this!

my vote is for a m43 camera. perhaps with a pancake zoom. something other systems only wish they had
