We just got the Canon C300 in at Hoptocopter Films last week and decided to do some stress tests on our shoot in San Carlos, Mexico. This was a test of the usable dynamic range and flexibility Canon’s XF format.
I shot this at 70mm with an original Canon 70-200mm 2.8 L IS. ISO 850 [Native] at 24 frames per second with the shutter set at 1/48th. 4 stops with the built in ND filter to allow this exposure with the amount of light.
I wanted some subjects that were worth watching and listening to, so I asked our friend Cyle Talley to share a song for the moment.
This shot was taken just before high noon on a bright sunny day, so needless to say, the lighting was terrible for video.
Although I know Resolve is amazing and crisp, we colored this in Magic Bullet Looks for the sake of time & in-program editing with Adobe Premiere Pro CS5.5.
Audio was recorded with a single Shotgun Mic (Audio Technica AT-8015) through Audio Envy Cables (audioenvy.com) to an Apogee Duet with Logic 9. Mic Stand was proud enough to show off his leg in the right bottom corner, so I should mention its efforts here. Thank you Mic Stand.
The audio adjustments were made in Adobe Audition’s multiband compressor with a little EQ adjustment.
We wanted to get this out quickly with an honest raw feel. I didn’t want to be forgotten, so I bumped the camera few times to remind you I was there watching too.
