We made a small clip to test the new 5d and some other equipment.
Light conditions were very critical: sunlight entering the forest and then the sun went away.
We filmed in 1080p 25fps, the camera was set in All-I mode.
We used iso setting in a range between 100 and 2000 iso.
We tested some new toys: followfocus (F4), lilliput 7" 5dII monitor, manfrotto 547b, shoottools camera slider PRO100, camera cage(walimex pro dslr video 5dmkii-7d).
All the equipment work fine.
I edited the clips with final cut X, also the color correction is done with final cut x. I think that in those lighting conditions I could not do better colorcorrection than this.
I'm very happy for the cheapest followfocus i bought. It work fine, it has 2 levers to lock two points of focus.
The camera cage works well, is very durable and has very many holes to fix microphone, etc.. through 1/8 bolts.
It has an handle on top very useful for picking up the camera.
The tripod (manfrotto 547b) is light and fast to set and fairly stable. I am very satisfied! It is a professional product and it's not expensive.
The shoottools Mec100 slider is very well done, I fixed on the top a Manfrotto 128RC head to attack the camera cage. it slid very smoothly. I put the slider on two old tripods. the slider was fixed very well, worked fine .
In a little time I will buy the Slider Tools Pro Motor to use the Mec 100 in automatic mode. It's indispensable to shoot motion timelapse and perfect slider movements.uc
The lilliput hd monitor (7" 5dii model) is a very competitive monitor. It has the peaking sistem that work fine. the new display is bright and clear. Its only flaw is that it is very slow when you switch from camera mode to camera menu. and when you turn it off and on.
I think Lilliput 5dII is best value for money.
About slow motion clip: Slow motion are made in normal quality, no optical flow or third party pluggins.To make good quality slow motion (about 40/50% speed rallenty) you have to record in 60p or 50p and conform in 24/25fps mode.
About the lens i used canon prime lens such as 50mm f1,2L and 35mm f1,4L.
Backstage camera was canon 7d + canon 15mm f2,8 fisheye.
