  2. The purpose of this review was to get as many follow focus units as we could in the same place, show some of the features and the pricing. The only winner here is the consumer. We now have a huge selection to help keep it all in focus.
    Renamed "Overview" to better suit the nature of the demo.
    Thanks for the feedback.

  4. Taking stills before rolling your DSLR can save you a lot of time during post production when working with shots plagued with aliasing, moire and other unwanted issues.

    This tutorial demonstrates how to save a poorly lit night scene using a long exposure still with a Canon 5D.

    NOTE: Other more complex examples of this technique can be seen at the end of this video.

    Software used:

    - After Effects
    - Photoshop
    - Cineform FirstLight

    Martin Beek over at Marvels Films asked me to compare some of his new version “3″ (actually version 2.3) picture styles, I tried all of them from his zip file in many different lighting conditions.

    The new Marvel 2.3 flat low contrast works really well for a beginner like me. I think others just getting their feet wet with color correction and grading will also like this one as well.

    From Martin’s blog here is his description of my favorite picture style:

    Slight “best of both worlds” s-Curve for useful flattening of the picture, without introducing flattening artifacts such as “plastic faces” and other 8-bit color gamma defects. Optimized for low contrast shooting situations (e.g. indoors, night).
    Classification: No color correction. Light flattening.
    Version 2.3 of december 5 2010, by Martin Beek and Bart Keimen, Marvels Film.

    I have tried some of the other more “advanced” styles like the version 1.2 (classic) or the new Panalog versions and even after tons of work I can’t make them look half way decent at all. Perhaps the Panalog is designed for the 5D and not the T2i 550D, maybe that is why I can’t get it to work for me.
