« on: December 15, 2012, 03:18:14 PM »
Hey guys, I usually do wildlife photography but wanted to try a model shoot, here are some of the results....only natural light and a reflector as I don't own a flash :/

Used a 5dm3, 24-105mm L and 100-400mm L

Any input is greatly appreciated...I m not really happy with the one on the floor

Software & Accessories / remote control/intervalometer for 5dm3
« on: December 03, 2012, 09:23:43 PM »
Hey guys,

I m very into wildlife and I m planning to shoot a Documentary on Waders soon, so I need a nice low budget remote control for my 5dm3. I want to do timelapses with it so I need an intervalometer within it.

It should also be able to trigger video, which I can't find any information on most of them, so I assume they don't have the option.

Can anybody recommend anything please? Cheers!

i had the pleasure talking to a award winning cinematographer the other day at a BBC event, he recommend something like this on the 5dm2, which will go hand in hand with the mark3

go to picture style

user def

Sharpness - all the way down
Contrast - all the way down
Saturation - half way down
hue/color tone 0

essentially the same effect as cinestyle giving you the washed out effect making it useable for post + a few other bonuses

wow that will kill the rebel sales, sounds like a very nice dslr, especially for video with 1080/60

Hey guys,

I m getting my new 5dm3 on Tuesday and I've worked with it before for a few weeks, I was wondering what picture style's you guys use in different scenarios, be it fiction or factual.

I do own a 100-400mm L and I m really happy with it, very versatile, as I do lots of filming with it as well.
AF could be a bit faster tbh, but for that price range you can't complain about it.

I currently own a T2i as well and do lots of wildlife shooting, so I did quite a lot of research, my advise don't get a 5dm2 as the autofocus is just S___ty, no improvement over the t2i, so depending on your budget i'd say go for a 5d mark iii, or IF you don't mind waiting another half a year or longer wait for the 7d mark ii to be released. Another option would be to get a 7D, but it has the same sensor as the t2i which wouldn't be much of an improvement than the obvious AF and FPS.

I'd go for the sigma 30mm 1.4 in that case!

I haven't read previous posts really, but you always want to keep things manual (unless you're doing a documentary where you have to rush into a house for example then you might want to work with auto iso), focusing it depends what you're shooting, but try and keep the f.stops at 10+ then you wont have such a shallow DOF which will make it easier to keep a subject moving in focus, but it's all about manually adjusting things. Obviously not as easy with a DSLR than a professional video camera.
