Anyone recorded the hdmi out from the new firmware update from 5d3?
What recorder worked best so far?
How was the footages?
Was there anymore 'headroom' for want of a better term in terms of color grading footage?
Can ya'll post some footage taken both ways off your camera for comparison for us to look at?
Only did a few comparisons so far.
External is greener, perhaps this is a trace more accurate, not sure yet.
External seems brighter, not sure if it means highlights are actually clipped a touch more or not.
External is a bit more saturated.
Viewed frame by frame, when you have lots of full frame motion and tons of changes per frame (moving focus in and out, moving camera around a bit so frame moves all over), external has much higher quality compression than internal IPB (didn't check ALL-I yet, this may bring things much closer). Seen realtime it doesn't stand out nearly as much though and lots of the difference are hard to spot, some can still clearly be seen if you have your eyes peeled and are really paying attention since during such motion and extreme transition everything is blurry or moving fast.
For largely static scenes, even in shadows, external prores hq compression seems awfully similar to the IPB internal, crazy hard to see any difference at all.
noticed less jaggies on red next to white, as expected
vertical color transitions and such are better, at regular size it's a bit tougher to notice, regular size, in motion quite tough in many cases
oddly horizontal transitions I'm seeing longer transition zones for some cases using external! black to pink, red to white, red to yellow, tend to get noticeable false transitions whereas internal recoding only has that to a much lesser degree?!? pink to black, white to red, yellow to red has a bit larger transitions using internal and very good using external but they are not as big on the internal as the ones going the opposite direction look on the external recording
So that is weird, some white letters on red, the letters were more jaggy on the internal recording due to 4:2:0 I'm sure but on external they had like dark, low chroma halos when red would hit white that were barely there using internal compression, odd. Going white to red looked great on external and had small halos with internal.
Not sure what is up with the horizontal transition differences.
Static image detail really seems to be the same in most cases, although sometimes white letters on red or blue are a touch sharper with external (but they also get some dark halo going from blue to white across each scanline which is odd).
Didn't look at all-i yet.
Or a comprehensive test yet.
Used Ninja 2 ProRes HQ 4:2:2.
