1. Just a small play I made quickly with some friends. A comparison between 3 cameras RED ONE MX, AF101 and CANON 5D

    All images are not graded and remain untouched.

    The First RED Light is a RedHead with GELS
    The Second one is LED Panel with GELS
    The last Light is a PROTO 400 LED FRESNEL without any GEL....

    The "Greenish" like that we can see only on the RED ONE is due to the fact that THE LED FRESNEL is filled with GREEN and need to be corrected... Funny to see that the red can notice that where all the other camera see a White Light....

    The images are taken straight from the cameras. Yes we could use very Flat LUT but we Wanted to see which kind of images is going out from each brand and what need to be done to enhance this for each of them ...
    In fact I made this test for y students in order to show them the major importance of the LUT and its influence in the images... because they don't understand a dime about that and what CAN ne done to enhance that... lol

  2. 1st day of playing with my RED ONE MX in the field.

  3. On December 14, 2011, 5k Insight held an event at the Denver Final Cut Pro Users group discussing two different workflows when using the Red Epic and Scarlet cameras for editors and post supervisors using Final Cut Pro 7. This video is an archive of the live stream, we apologize for the poor quality and slow refresh times at different points in the video.

    Thanks for watching,

  4. See the related article on cinema5D:

    This is how we hacked the 5D: c5d.at/1o4

    Today we already published a test video of the impressive Canon 5D mark III RAW module enabled by the Magic Lantern hack and a guide to get it working yourself.

    Here's a side by side comparison of the 5D mark III with 14bit RAW 1080p together with the Blackmagic Cinema Camera with 2.5K RAW so you can see how the two cameras differ.

    What we did:

    We went out with a Canon 5D mark III that had the Magic Lantern RAW module hack on it and shot with the Blackmagic Cinema Camera in RAW mode alongside.
    We used the Canon 24-105mm lens on the 5D while we used the Tokina 16-50mm on the Blackmagic. Native ISO on the Blackmagic is 800 so we used that.

    We tried to get similar shots. It's not so easy, in fact it was easier to get the shots on the 5D as the Blackmagic is just not a very easy to use camera in many regards. Wrongly interpreted zebra indicators had me fooled several times and the internal battery almost died.

    Post processing
    After a lengthy process of getting the RAW files converted into something usable we graded both to match more or less. We didn't do a very sophisticated grade, working with RAW files like that is time consuming.

    What became clear is that both cameras provide very similarly capable RAW files. You can adjust everything and everything is possible. You can get similar details out of the sky and set all you like in post. Color temperature, tint, dynamic range, no problem. The 5D is just as strong as the BMCC, providing maybe a bit more dynamic range.

    Where the cameras differ in terms of RAW is one big thing: Noise. The 5D mark III can shoot indoors at ISO 1600 and there's almost no noise while the Blackmagic starts to get ugly at this point.
    The noise from the BMCC is also apparent when raising the blacks in a shot.

    Moire and aliasing is another big big issue on Blackmagic and there is very litte of that on the 5D RAW. The cleanness of the shots of the 5D RAW in general is extremely pleasing and jumps at you when you sit in front of the RAW images. Check some of the dng's yourself in our other post.

    The 5D RAW has the clear advantage of a large sensor and never before seen ISO performance on a RAW camera. It's intriguing and soon a stable version will probably be ready for real usage.
    On the downside the 5D RAW has a little less detail than the Blackmagic or an Alexa, but a lot more detail than the 5D had without the RAW hack.

    We'll keep you posted on the progress of the Magic Lantern solution.
