Pruebas de camara con la Canon EOS 1DC, nada fue iluminado con luces todo fue con la luz natural y tratamos de usar todos los setings que la camara nos dejo (traiamos una prototipo), el software que traia la 1DC aun no tenia todos los menus funcionales, tratamos de usar la camara lenta pero no lo logramos, con estas pruebas nos damos cuenta en general lo funcional de la camara.
La compresion de video se ve horrible, perdon por eso, no hay mucho que podamos hacer tendrian que ver el original para poder notar bien la precision de la camara en colores.

(Sorry for the compresion, there is nothing I can do, this video in Pro Res HQ looks amazing but in this compresions looses a litle bit of the colors we tend to give from the baselight correction).
Camera Tests with Canon EOS-1DC, I tested the camera with various settings, I did not used any cine light, the lighting was available light, the model that we had didn't had all the settings yet, it was still a prototype, so I knew I could not play with some of the setings like slow motion, I was curious, but I just could't.
I did mostly tests around the things that I encounter most of times, I push the limits in the camera with ISO and the shutter speed, I even played with lenses either canon cine lenses (CN-E), normal canon lenses and lenses that were not from canon, like vivitar and sigma, they look great.
Anyway, I really believe this is one of the best cameras I have ever used the range of the ISO, is something that works fantastically for me, Like very much the camera on the night scenes, the range is just unbelievable.
I came with an interesting concept of what this camera really is: Because it shots in a new format called "Motion JPG" I believe that as DP's we have to shoot from the camera as nicer we can with less contrast and less sharpness we can to have grater control on post, any way, we have a format that I can say it compares with what use to be Positive Film (not negative) I believe that shooting with it we have a lot of range on stops but once it gets in the master and you are in color correction you can't go a lot further like Negative and Raw material, that is why I believe that the next C500 camera from canon will be the absolute choice, because the Video on Raw. But the 1DC is still a very interesting camera, and probably my choice for low light situations, I just shot a comercial with it all in 4K, I did use 1 Fresnel 10K, 2 Fresnel 5K, and 2 Fresnel 2K, on it but because I was shooting against local tungsten lights from the park, the light had to be shoot not so bright, so this is probably my favorite camera for nigh scenes until now.
You can see some still photos from that comercial here at this link: (taken with the 1DC at 4K)
Link for the commercial i shoot with the Canon 1DC:
I have been using the H4n for as long as I have been shooting on HDSLRs. It has taken good care of me and I have not had any major problems with it. So if people think I am being unfair to the H4n they should also try the Tascam DR100… They might find themselves picking one up. Even though the H4n has become the most used audio recorder by HDSLR shooters, I believe the DR100 MkII has a serious edge on it.
Well this is the first time for me being on the wrong side of the lens, so apologies for being slightly out of focus all the time.
This is a short video on a track that I made for a Cinemover (links below). The track is made up of System 30. It's a really useful resource as you can pretty much make anything frame based that you could think of.
Things I Forgot to say:
Firstly if you are struggling to source the stuff I would be happy to make you a track. I also have a bag that it all fits perfectly into with enough room for a small tripod (this was why I said people think you are a fisherman).
However there would be a 2 month waiting list. This is not because of a huge backlog of orders but because I am going to be away from now until Christmas. If there is a lot of interest I might be able to persuade the guys at work to make some. Obviously shipping fees to the US tend to be quite high but we can work that out later.
Let me know your thoughts by tweeting me @samfack or emailing me at email@example.com.
If I do start making this stuff I'm going to need a name for it... "FackTrack" has a ring to it.
Thanks for watching.
