EOS Bodies / Re: 7d2 Video specification speculation
« on: March 17, 2013, 09:11:31 PM »
I would guess that the 7D2 video performance will be limited by the same overheating problems that limit all DSLRs.  DSLRs are camera that are designed to take photographs, but happen to have some ability to make video.  The video performance has to be limited to prevent the sensor and electronics from overheating and failing prematurely.

I don't think sensor heat has anything to do with it. You don't need to expose the sensor more times, you just need to throw away less data.

I believe that it must have something to do with it. The 1DC has a heat spreader around the sensor to keep it cool. The Sony SLT cameras are known to overheat while shooting 1080p60 video. They don't actually overheat, but first display a warning, then shut down before any damage can occur. Even my RX100 will shut down if I shoot 1080p60 long enough at a high ISO. I'd imagine the thermal output increases as the sensor size increases. The GoPro Hero and most handheld video cameras have tiny sensors.

Of course higher frame rates will put more heat on the sensor. What i am saying is, a far greater increase in video image quality can be achieved by throwing away less information from the sensor than adding more exposures(6op does have it's uses, but for many people it offers no useful advantage). 

It's time Canon took the handcuffs off it's dslrs.

I don't see a pun in the title.

I think he meant alliteration.

Whatever the specs are, we can pretty much guarantee that specs will be totally nerfed compared to what the processors are capable of.

I hoping for a 7DC that give me RAW, but i doubts that's coming anytime in the near future.

I think the c100 could make your life a lot easier, but if you are really looking the biggest jump in IQ over your existing setup, i'd say the clear winner is BMC.

The pains of working with RAW are real, but being able to make the image look exactly like you want it too, without worrying about losing detail or banding, is a huge advantage.

But think about it this way,  even if you had to buy a brand new workstation to handle raw....

$3000 BMC + $3000 workstation< c100

Street & City / Re: Jon Rafman's work: Unedited or not?
« on: February 24, 2013, 09:10:12 PM »
Does Jon claim that his work hasn't been adjusted in post?  I don't know of any serious photographer (editorial, commercial or otherwise) that doesn't adjust his or her work in post. I do know of a few who pretend they don't, and do.

The point is it's not really his work in the first place, it's purportedly what he's "collected" off google maps.  I think that editing the colors, and then sticking the map controls back in is a bit of a fib.

EOS Bodies / Re: Will Canon ever move into the Medium Format space?

MF sensors are easy to produce, there is no magic in it because the pixels don't have to be very dense.

The glass on the other hand, with enough sharpness and coverage for MF sensor, will end up costing more than anything else.

It's one of the craziest things i've ever seen. But its also kinda creepy. You can literally see into thousands of peoples house/offices.

Somewhere in this thing is Waldo.  Now i just need to find him.

Thanks, Jimbo.

The fist example clearly shows that some sort of white balance adjustment was made.

Alright sleuths, can any of you prove that some of his work has been edited in post(other than resizing)?

Some of them looks like they blatantly used Instagram filters.

EOS Bodies / Re: New Cinema Camera & Lenses for NAB 2013
« on: February 13, 2013, 09:46:39 AM »
This makes no sense with the 1D C in play, a 7D C would be more practical but I'm afraid they might priced it in the $6k area.


The 1DC is $12K, does 60fps 1080, and it does 4K something no other dslr does.  Oh, and it's also the BEST full frame stills camera on the market.  There is plenty of room for differentiation.

I bet they have this wrong, there isn't really any room for product differentiation between the c100 and the c300. I bet we finally see the 5D-C.

The black magic cinema camera is poised to steal market share from Canon in video, but they are still getting their supply chain figured out with 3-6 months of back-orders. Now is the time for Canon to retaliate.

A 5D-C that records raw (at actual 1080 res), with an s35 crop mode, but doesn't handle jello, moire, and rolling shutter as well as the c100-c500 line, or have any pro features.

All for $4K (US).

EOS Bodies - For Video / Re: How bad is moire?
« on: February 10, 2013, 02:22:08 PM »
I consider myself a total snob when it comes to IQ and honestly moire is one of the last things i notice. Of the zillion clips i've watched, i've never said to myself, "that would have been perfect, except for the moire."

Then again, maybe the people who do everything else right are good at avoiding moire too. 

That being said, you might want to consider the gh3 as a more dedicated dslr for video.  You'll save a bunch on lenses too.

I remember seeing this one a few years ago. Still my favorite:

That's amazing. I love the way how the scene was modified throughout, with things like the clock appearing, and the yardstick. Pure genius.

For your dedication and push-the-shutter-every-30-seconds efforts I give you two thumbs up and a virtual beer, amigo!  I enjoy doing time lapse also, although on the day of the storm I was outside in 70 degrees and sun in the Florida Panhandle taking (camcorder) video of fire ants.  I grew up in snow country and have friends and family digging out - I no longer recognize a snow shovel.

^ thanks amigo. I envy your latitude right now. If i ever make enough money to retire, you'll never see me outside the tropics again!

I shoot many of my TL's in MRAW and find that Lightroom's 720 resolution is just fine.  I found full size RAW and 1080 to be overkill for this application.

I used sraw to keep the files to 10MB, but i needed the Raw because i knew the exposures were going to be extremely flat, and i'd have to pull out lots of detail.

Lens twist method for constant aperture or an adapter and a manual M42 lens..

Can you explain "Lens twist method"?  I think i know what you are talking about, but i'm not sure.

^Manual white balance, but it was shot in raw so i tweaked it in post. I think the phenomena you're talking about was caused by the varying degrees of snowfall.
