Lenses / Re: $1200 for Lens to shoot video
« on: April 08, 2012, 07:27:36 AM »
for scripted filmlike shoots i would go for primes.
for run & gun docu style shoots the 24-70L is the way to go (you can always ad primes for special shots )

EOS Bodies / Re: VIMEO-your video failed to convert correctly
« on: April 07, 2012, 07:23:40 AM »
You need to compress the file to mp4 h264.
http://vimeo.com/help/compression
There are tuturials for different edit suites to the right.

The original mov's out of the camera are to large for uploading to vimeo and even when they accept the codec they will still convert it  to mp4.
So just make your life easyer and make the uploading file smaller by converting it to mp4. ;-)

So FAKE!
Good joke though ;-)

EOS Bodies / Re: Where did the new Canon 5DX topic go to?

looks like the 1dx without the grip
The connections seem the same and no headphone out like the 5d3

EOS Bodies - For Video / Re: 5D Mark III Timecode Question
« on: March 06, 2012, 08:21:36 AM »
in practise it only works to sync multiple camera's and even then it won't be accurate to the frame.
clocks can/will start to drift after a few minutes so it won't be frame accurate.

So however usefull for getting the shots approx. close.  not realy the best solution for audio syncing.
The easiest solution for syncing dual system sound is the stand alone program "dualeyes" or the plugin "pluraleyes"
at 149$ realy worth the investment in my opinion.

thanks for the reply, the workflow of pluraleys/dualeyes is still a bit of a hassle...
Horita makes a cheap timecode generator which can feed timecode signal to the mic in on DSLRs, only Avid and Final Cut Pro can read this auido TC...

guess i'll just stick to clapperboard

Whats the hassle??
Even with genlockkits i had frame drifts on multicamerashoots wich resulted in a audio correction action on each shot on the timeline  :-\
with dualeyes you sellect all your video/audio files press sync ...go grab a cup off coffee wait15/30 min. and presto new videofiles with good audio.
Every sollution has it's pittfalls and with this workflow it's a bit more hassle if you have more than 2channels of audio.
But the clapperboard system is always a good backup system to have... 8)

Not realy a big deal.
The whole reason for shooting with dslr's is for the control you get with what is in focus and what isn't.
When using shallow dof any autofocus (even the best out there) would go crazy between subjects in your composition.
For steadycam shots it could be handy but only if it's very good/fast.

EOS Bodies / Re: Videographers happy with 5D Mark III?
« on: March 02, 2012, 08:16:26 AM »
Is it true that Canon is working on a Cinema DSLR that shoots 4k video? If so, i may hold out for that, assuming it's less expensive than the C300 that came out recently.

Yes it's true I'm kinda holding out for that one also.

It was my birthday yesterday but I didn't get any gift from my wife, she just told me the new 5D and 24-70 II will be my gift!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ;D ;D ;D ;D
She even asks me about the new 5D everyday!!

Punch your best friend... shes obviously having sex with him...
My best friend is a SHE, so I don't mind watching or joining them

Now theres a good use for your new 5d3 and 24-70 II  ;D

And isn't it nice from canon to include it with video function  ;D

EOS Bodies - For Video / Re: ND Filter for video - how to use?
« on: February 28, 2012, 06:52:41 AM »
you should leave your shutter on  1/60th

1/60th if he's shooting 30fps, but 1/50 for 24fps.

As i see it the problem of the original poster was about the strobing effect due to higher shutter settings.
This has al to do with the freq. of the powergrid and nothing to do with the prefered shuttersetting for motionblur.
All light sourches directly connected to the powergrid will resonate at 60hz(50hz in europe) that is why if i'm shooting in the usa i would have to use 1/60th even when i'm shooting 25p.
Maybe that is the reason some people experience light flicker in the US when shooting 24p at 1/50th

You're welcome ;-)


The aftermarket batterys for 5d/7d are a good deal also.
They have a uk and us warehouse ,if they have your item in stock there it will be delivered pretty quick.
If you order from the hongkong site however it could take about a month to get to you at least that is the case when you live in europe.

The poster had no ND on this particular shoot but wanted to shoot with diafragma 2,8 because of DOF.
He accomplished this by setting his shutterspeed at a high number.
For video this can give problems with light setups because they are transmitting at a freq. of 50/60Hz (depending were you are on this blue globe).
