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.

One of our NAB highlights is always getting to speak with Canon’s Chuck Westfall. Ever the gracious host, Chuck showed us two of Canon’s new ultra compact professional camcorders, the XA20 and XA25. It might seem out of place for us to cover a traditional video camera on a website dedicated to HDSLR Cinematography. However, the inherent limitations of shooting HDSLR...

A review of Canon's semi-professional XA20 camcorder. Much of the review is also applicable to the XA25 model and the consumer-oriented Legria / Vixia HF-G30, as these are all essentially the same camcorder with minor variations.
