What's your budget? If you are going to use testimonials in the middle, along with exterior daylight shots, I'd use tungsten lights (or HMI lights if I had unlimited budget).  I'd also go with a standard three light interview setup.

Why did you go with the glidecam 4000 instead of the 2000? Whatever the reason, it worked great. It really did glide.

Pretty sweet. What type of stabilizer did you use? It was all very smooth. My only criticism is that the lighting was bad on the guy talking.

Unfortunately, HMI lights are only for the big leagues. I feel like tungsten lights will blend better with the ambient city lights.

There probably finding it difficult to prevent people from turning their 1D-X into a 1D-C.

Here's a decent review of the FS700 from Philip Bloom:

It's sad the camera still has a lower bit-rate than the 5dmkii. Looks like they didn't want to mess with F3 market.

So the 5D3 should be able to rock it at 250Mbs. Thanks for the correction on the lack of Raw on 1DC.

^Amen to that!

Congrats! You totally got robbed though. You're video was vastly superior to the winner.

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.
