Is there a way to get lens correction for the Rokinon 14mm within Adobe LR5 on a mac?
For as much as I know, the 6d's ML is still in beta testing. Since it is still not in a stable form, it is more risky to get it than for instance the 550d's version, which in a stable and final form. I'm personally wanting for a stable version of the 6d's ML to get it, but if you are more adventurous than me, please post your opinion on it here!
Cayenne, I used Premiere pro with Magic Bullet looks to do any color/exposure adjustments
McBrad, I shot it at 60fps and conformed it to 24fps on the timeline.
You're WB seems right on...did you make sure and set WB for each scene?
What did you use for the color style when shooting this? Was it a normal Canon picture style, or did you shoot flat like with a Marvels Cinestyle...and do color correction/grading after in post? If so, what did you do color with?
What are you using for editing?
Anyway, I very much enjoyed the video...looked like a fun bunch of folks having a great day and you captured it quite well.
I used manual white balance on everything/adjusted by eye. As far as color style I used Canon Faithful with pretty much everything dialed down with the intent of pushing it in post.
I'm going to work on another version and address everyones notes.
Thanks Again !
VERY NICE!!Thanks! I appreciate your support!
Fun watch and welcome to the forum!!Can you give details on your workflow with RAW/ML? Did you use Davinci Resolve to do your intake and color correction/grading? What did you edit in...did you roundtrip with different apps?
Concerning the RAW/ML Workflow:
I shot with a 5D Mark II with Magic Lantern 2.3 plus an alpha build version for RAW video. The shooting time is limited at about 15-20 secs, which results in a 2GB large file. This file can be converted into multiple .dng files (every frame = one file (2MB)) by the program raw2dng. I have edited these files in Lightroom with batch processing, then I have exported these files to .jpg and then imported those in Premiere Pro.
That means I did every color correction in Lightroom which was very nice for me, because I have just limited experience in color correction for video and so I was able to work like I'm used to with my photos!
For the other shots (GoPro and Contour) I have just applied a bit sharpness and the standard Premiere Pro effect "Lumtri (cinema 1)", so I did not use Davinci Resolve.
One that I've been noticing more and more lately, particularly in advertising, is using an adjective when an adverb would be more appropriate. Here's an example from a radio advertisement this morning:
"Start your day delicious at Paradise Bakery."
Does that mean I should be delicious today? Should I feel delicious today? If my day should have a delicious start, it would start deliciously.
If I were into manual focus, I think I'd strongly consider Magic Lantern and its focus peaking feature.
Yeah, I do understand how the flashes work and I love working with them. My problem comes when I want one flash in ETTL and one set to manual...I can't seem to control them from the st-e3-rt very good. Also In manual mode how do I turn On/Off a group?
15min is the time it takes me just to set up the light stands and softboxes

Hi I'm stuck deciding if I should upgrade my 50mm 1.8 to a 1.2 or go with the 1.4, I've done some research and read that the Sigma 50mm 1.4 is a better lens than the Canon 1.4. If you have had any of these lens any advice would be great to help me make my decision.
The argument of that article, "The main problem for the Japanese camera makers though, is their continued lack of focus on software. The world has moved from a place where hardware was the dominant factor to where software is now more important", doesn't convince me either, at least for Canon modus operandi.
Proof One: Magic Lantern.
Proof Two: Canon (and maybe the rest as well) don't offer firmware upgrades once a model is replaced. For example, I found that STM lenses, although they worked on my (ancient) 5D and 30D's, they did not work very well. Now just how much effort would it be for Canon to offer a firmware upgrade for discontinued cameras just to keep the lens info up to date?
How many of the users of a specific camera model bought Magic Lantern? If you have 10,000 5D MkIII sales did 10% buy it? That's the criterion. For firmware backwards support I would agree but they want to boost new model sales. Even Microsoft teminates support of Windows older than 2 versions, that's pretty much the same analogy.
Of all this I make it the weak link is entry-level dSLRs. Someone in that segment could turn to other solutions. For the sake of the argument let's say that level is discontinued impact is prosumer and higher dSLRs become more expensive. And I wouldn't want to see the MkIV at USD4,000...
