EOS Bodies / Re: The Light Leak Issue
« on: April 09, 2012, 01:14:33 PM »
Canon EOS 60D
I tested 2 bodies and found no issue once I placed the folded black fabric over the viewfinder. No change with backlight on.

Canon EOS 7D
I tested 2 bodies and found no issue once I placed the folded black fabric over the viewfinder.  No change with backlight on.

Canon EOS 5D Mark II
I tested the one body I have in stock. This camera exhibited the same issue as the 5D Mark III in direct sunlight, however the backlight didn’t affect exposure. I also did the flashlight test that is mentioned below and nothing changed in exposure.

Canon EOS-1D Mark IV – Body #1
There was an ever so slight shift in exposure with the viewfinder cover down.  10 seconds out of the sun, 8 seconds in the sun. I stuffed the viewfinder with the black fabric and there was no change. The variance in exposure went away if I wrapped the LCD with the black fabric and only left enough space to see the exposure number. No change with backlight on.

Canon EOS-1D Mark IV – Body #2
This body exhibited no movement in exposure. No change with backlight on.

-----------------------------------------------------

Could someone check which side is the LED (inside the LCD) on all the tested bodies? In the 5D3, the LED is on the left side, closer to the metering sensor. Could it be that all the other bodies have the LED on the right side? Just a hyphothesis. You could check the LED position by looking sideways into the LCD.

that was what i was suggesting. on my 7d the amber backlightled is on the right side.
So it seems they made a placement error.
It may be a small to nonexistent problem but still should be easy to fix for canon.

 could it be that they switched the amber backlight position from the right(7d) to the left next to the mirorbox?

when you look at the lcd at an angle you can make out the led.
i believe that one side of the lcd is mirrored off to reflect the backlight back.
the ledside isn't so sunlight can sliptrough and the ledlight itself will have a more profound effect when placed next to the mirror box

can someone check the position of the backlight led on the markIII?

Lenses / Re: $1200 for Lens to shoot video

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. ;-)

If you don't read a post...than does it exist?

You're right the zoomring is to close to the body....
So FAKE!
Good joke though ;-)

EOS Bodies / Re: Where did the new Canon 5DX topic go to?
« on: March 07, 2012, 12:52:22 PM »
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.
