Some raw video tests shot on my 50D with an Auto Revuenon 50mm F1.4
I've uploaded the 1080p H.264 version (that Vimeo re-encoded to 720p) if anyone wants to see the full resolution video (500MB) http://we.tl/wKhNyBjCD7
Some 1080p frame grabs so you can see the difference in quality: http://imgbox.com/g/IKS6mQOvec
The first half of the video is the raw footage that I colour corrected in Rawtherapee (as it has better control over debayering) and output as 8-bit Jpegs. Only +8 - +11 sharpness was added in Premier Pro. No noise reduction at all. (Used BATCHelor to convert raw to DNG). I would have output higher bitrate files but I felt it wasn't needed for this test.
The second half is graded using tone mapping and then I added some Film Convert Pro (Velvia +35% Super 35mm Film noise 30 - 50%) - Yes I know I wrote Flim instead of Film LOL!
Notes: I wanted to test my new (but old) lens, an Auto Revuenon 50mm F1.4. I shot between F2.0 and F11 in the late evening. The sun was going down and already behind the buildings but I got some nice gold reflections for the early portrait shots that show in the graded part of the video. I could have used a reflector to balance the light a bit but this was a quick test. The lens performed great and easily beats my Nikon 50's.
I shot everything in 2.35:1 ratio in both crop and non-crop raw video modes. If you can see aliasing in some shots that'll be the non-crop mode video.
Non-crop resolution was 1584 x 674
Crop resolution used was 2000 x 852
Up/downscaled in post to 1080p
For the grade I wanted to try out tone mapping to bring out some detail without excessive sharpening and I'm also trialing Film Convert Pro. I like it so far but it's easy to overdo it.
Hope you like!
Oh, for those interested I shot using my own build of 1%'s Tragic Lantern 2.0 (Aug 19th) - although the video says 17th - doh!
