Use IPB, turn of IS (it makes a lot of noise), use a tripod, set white balance to shade. If you don't want manual, you can do shutter priority, and set shutter to 1/50.

I'd go manual, set shutter to 1/50, f/8, and then adjust iso to compensate.

the pathways for stills record raw data. video needs to be processed and tons of data discarded. this bit rate is likely baked in the circuits and can't be really upped or they would have started higher. if you want higher rates you need a clean uncompressed HDMI out. hopefully magic lantern will find a way since that is the only real solution to bit rate issues.

I don't know. Just think about what the 1D-C can pump out, with Raw 4k.  the DIGI 5 processor is a big leap over 4.

144 MB/s=1.1Gb/s mhhh.... nope  ;)

144 MB/s=1.15Gb/s=.144GB/s

Everybody happy now?

If you think about it, the 5d mkiii can handle 6 fps @ 25MB per shot, so its capable of  doing over short bursts(at least in terms of processing).  But they can definitely do better than the bit-rate they currently offer.

I think the basic deal is that you get more latitude in post, but only if you are editing frame by frame. If you are applying edits to the whole take, then IPB is just as good for editing. Furthermore, IPB has more detail in each frame because it isn't reliant on each frame providing all the information for the entire frame.  Many people have reported block artifacts with ALL-I, because it requires significant compression in each frame.

Think about it, truly uncompressed 1080, ALL-I should be (2M(resolution)*3bytes(24bit color)*(24fps)=144 MB/s=1.1Gb/s

The 5dmkiii max data rate is 1/10th of that, so it requires massive compression in each frame. IPB circumvents this issue somewhat by putting more detail in a key frame.

Video & Movie / Re: McCallum Bagpipes corporate, Canon 7D & 550D

Great stuff! There were almost too many good shots to count.  I can only think of two small criticisms: The WB got a little cold in places, and was maybe tad too cold throughout.  Also, the key light on Kenny McCloud was in the wrong place, causing symmetrical highlights in the middle of his face.

But it was fantastic. How long did it take to shoot, produce? McCallum must be very pleased.

Video & Movie / Re: a casual commercial on 5D3

Dude, I F______ hate commercials, but this was great. The only shots that really showed the weakness of the camera(s) were the wide shots of the kid in the yard. The opening shot looked a bit blocky too(But that might be Youtube).

All that aside, the commercial was awesome. The kids was a total spaz, and its perfect.  I loved it when he falls down while out of focus at the very end. Very well done for one days work.

His "knighthood" was announced today. Threy just might use him to light the Olympic Flame in the Olympic Stadium.

For some  reason, I imagined them literally using him to light the torch, like a giant flame.

It looks like Canon was desperately trying to make it for Euro 2012. But they 100% need to make if for the Olympics (July 27th), or they run the risk of an uber-fail. That probably means that they are going to stick to the current deadline, and definitely no later than the first week in July. 

Otherwise their supply chain guys are going to start stabling themselves in the gut.

On a side note, I think the footage from the c300 looks pretty great.

Am I wrong for thinking that the only reason the mirror exists is so you can have an optical viewfinder?

Video & Movie / Re: Incident on Marmont Avenue
« on: May 16, 2012, 11:48:34 AM »
This was a much better film, with a crew of 1, filmed on a Canon Rebel with a budget of $50 https://vimeo.com/32655795

I'd have to agree with you there.

As for Marmont Ave: Why pay for actors, when the script doesn't require much acting? They'd have been much better off hiring better looking people(or at least more interesting looking), for less money. 

This feels like a group of Hollywood clowns decided to make a movie in one night(after a few bottles of wine).

I'm not following this at all. If supply is flat  (not linear and certainly not linear with a slope of 10), then Cost(Q) = 10 (not 10Q)   So in the first example P = 100-Q, the curves cross where 10=100-Q, so Q = 90 and P = 10. Second example they cross at, P=200-Q = 10 = Cost(Q), so   Q=190 and P = 10 (more sales, same price)

In this case, the supply curve and MARGINAL cost are the same. Cost(Q)=10Q implies MC=10.

So in the first case, you would maximize Total Revenue-Total Cost= P*Q-C(Q)=(100-Q)Q-10Q.

Taking derivative with respect to Q, we get 100-2Q-10=0, resulting in Q=45. Plugging Q=45 back into the demand we get P=55.

I taught intermediate microtheory for 3 years at UNC-Chapel Hill, so for the sake of my former students, I hope I haven't f**ked this up.

Thanks for all the advice! That Arri-Manual was great. I Plan on shooting with a c300. I have a 5D2, but I wanted to avoid using it as a B-Cam.

I plan on using QPCARDs for some general consistency throughout.
