This was another spontanious last minute test of the new Canon 5d Mark II camera. I can’t say that it was the most unpleasant camera test. Those whoopie pies are yummy!

FYI: Whoopie pies are named such after the Armish Wives used to make these small delicasies and put them in their husbands lunch boxes. Upon discovery the men often exclaimed “Whoopie!”

Isn’t your life the richer for that knowledge!

Technical side of the video. I used the CINEMA picture style and ran the contrast, saturation and sharpness at minus “5″ or the lowest setting. I also ran the colour down minus “2″ from the centre. Hazy on the settings.

I used the white balance shift to the top right hand corner. G9, something 9. I can’t remember exactly.

I think white balance was run at 4500. I was going for a warm skin tone effect. I was really happy with the lushness and warmness of the skin tones and effect in this video. Also loved how the stainless steel looked out of focus. Really smooth!

I used a Canon 50mm f1.8 running at f1.8

Yes that is me and my mum in the video. lol.

The CINEMA PS is a custom developed Picture Style for all video enabled Canon cameras like the 1D, 5D, 7D, T2i/550D, 60D.

Unlike other flat styles, the CINEMA PS can be used out of the box without having to apply LUT curves or special color corrections.

The CINEMA PS is already balanced, contrasted and has an amazing film colorimetry. Selective colors and saturation shifting, and a custom gamma curve are applied before the user parameters like contrast, saturation and sharpness.

The CINEMA PS doesn't need Color Grading, but likes it, as it is a good starting point.

The factory contrast is set to 0 for studio or controlled light applications.

In highly contrasted situation, we suggest to set the contrast to -1 which will not affect the contrast, but further recover highlighs.
