Video & Movie / Wekfest Car Show shot on C100 and 5D Mk 3
« on: June 03, 2013, 02:09:33 AM »
I haven't posted in awhile but I thought I would post up my most recent work. This event was shot with my 5D on my jib with a motorized head while all of the pans and dolly shots were shot with the C100. Some people would say why not put the C100 on the jib but it will slow down my workflow and just cause alot of setup and breakdown time and plus I can also shoot 60fps on the MK3 which I cannot on the C100. The footage cuts very well together after sharpening the MK3 footage. Check it out!!

nice for some.. but i would rarely use it.

The first thing that jumps out at me is my constant frustration with having to get home before I post photos. I go shoot a protest or rally (like I did this past Saturday with the Chicago Teacher's Union strike rally) and while I'm sitting on a train twiddling my thumbs, AP, Getty, and everyone with instagram is posting first. If the phone app really works quickly and isn't too buggy it would be great to flip through 500-1000 photos and rate my top 10, transmit my top 3 via e-mail to an editor, then process the others for a slideshow in the evening.

Typically, wire service photogs crash in a hotel or starbucks, but occasionally you're out somewhere with limited access to WiFi, and this kind of thing (tethering wirelessly to a smart phone) just adds one more option.

It would just be a workflow process improvement for anyone shooting on a deadline or from a remote location with no wifi.
What do you shoot with right now? If you have camera with a SD card slot you can use the eye fi card like I do and have the photos go immediately to your phone and you can post them up on instagram, facebook and twitter right then and there.

I sometimes (ok, a lot of the time) wonder how the marketing guys think at Canon.

I sometimes wonder how consumers of Canon think.  These lenses aren't being marketed towards me and you, and in the cinema world they are average priced.  It's like saying Canon is crazy and stupid for making a $20k industrial printer because all you need is a $200 Pixma.

I don't know how long it is going to take to realize that companies make stuff for different segments, and just because you're interested in something doesn't mean that every single product they release is made for you.

Preach... I feel that nowadays consumers lack everything you said

Yeah I will be in Vegas filming hopefully my camera(s) dont overheat but it will be a test for my 5D MKiii

I got the chance to Travel to Road Atlanta for Round 2 of Formula Drift and it was definitely an experience I'd want to do again. Road Atlanta is a track I have always played on Forza and Gran Turismo so to actually see how beautiful that track is was breathe taking. Anyway check out the video and dont be shy to like and share.

I mainly use my Canon 24-70L F2.8 and Canon 70-200L F2.8 IS
Your vids are amazing! what lens do you mostly use to film these.

Thank you
These videos are awesome!

If Im shooting 24fps which I was about 90% of the time I shoot 1/50th if I want film look but if I want no motion blur I was shooting 1/2000th in some of the footage.
I normally shoot at 1/30s for video, much smoother...

Thats the exact same question I've been asking here
Ive seen so many videos where people are talking about shooting fast shutter speeds so I took that advice and it looks like I was wrong. I will have it all figured out by next month when I have to shoot again because a buddy of mine was shooting 60fps at 1/160th at the same event and his results came out awesome.
Interesting.  Why does it do that?  Is it because 1/2000 leaves shots to sharp that they don't blend together? Do you need 1/160 or something like that so they arent as crisp?  Or do you just need something like 120 fps?

I actually did some video in 60fps and it didnt come out how I imagined it. Next time I shoot in Atlanta for Formula D I will do a slower shutter speed probably 1/160th instead of 1/2000th. Here are the results of fast shutter at 60fps Canon 5D MKIII: 60fps Slow Mo Test

Awesome video.  I will say that I was waiting for some slow motion action though.  I really thought you were going to have them come around the corner in full speed, then switch to slowmo for a second or two.  I realize that you'd need to be in 720 for 60fps, but I think it would have been awesome.

Either way, sweet video.

I couldnt be any happier with the outcome of how the MKIII Performed vs the MKII because there was no more Moire and also being able to monitor the sound helped alot. I've shot alot of car events before and sometimes the sound would be over bearing but the MKIII worked like a charm.

Great stuff!  How'd you find the camera's video capabilities?
