1. 5Dmk2/7D lens comparison test


    from Mike Collins Added 370K 1,356 159

    This is a short test with the tripod in the same spot switching between prime lenses to show how the crop affects the 7D. The subject, ace stand in Chris Clement, was roughly five feet from the camera. This isn't meant to be an aesthetic test to show the difference in image quality between the two cameras. It's a down and dirty field guide for myself and the other shooters we work with so we can quickly figure what lens we want to use on each camera. We go from 20mm all the way to 100mm with a Lensbaby composer thrown in at the very end.

    • Goodbye Jello! Hello Sony A7S APS-C vs Full Frame. Also some 720p 120 FPS.


      from Ed David Added 45.8K 364 128

      http://vimeo.com/102244108. My latest a7s video!! So Sony A7S - at full frame your rolling shutter looks all jello-y. But hey there's a little buried menu option to switch to APS-C crop. So thanks to dvxuser.com I did it - I switched it and look at that smoothness. Even while just holding the camera and nothing else - no rig, no nothing!! Now you are even more useful to me and many more people who would also like to steal shots with it or use it really quickly to get a creative small or different angle. The first half of this video is APS-C, the 2nd half full frame. Also I am grading this video better - less contrasty, a softer grade. So less heckling from the world, I hope! Camera settings: 24 FPS. 1/50 shutter. +3 o4 +4 color phase. sharpness -7 . s log gamma and s gamet color space. Using Orisis Impulz Lutz for generic log footage - I modifired slightly the kodak 5219 profile. Nothing is perfect on the grade - again I don't have much time - I'm doing all this between jobs. But it's less goofy and less cartoony - lower contrast and still quite cyan in the shadows but that's a nice look that I enjoyed for this fun test. The results I found is that APS-C mode has a lot less rolling shutter issues but it appears according to others to increase some noise? Still at 3200 ASA in daylight I found it quite clean. Curious with more lower light situations. Those are questions for real tests. Not these ones that are subjective and kind of useless like this one. Thanks for watching!

      • EPIC-X Redwoods


        from Patrick Lawler Added 13.9K 346 91

        Here is the first video I shot with my brand new RED EPIC-X! Shot in 5KFF using Duclos Cine-mod Tokina 11-16mm t2.8 and RED 18-50mm t3.0. I just got my EPIC-X last week. Since I've been working so much I haven't had much time to post or even shoot with it. Finally I got some free time and I took an awesome day-trip with my dad to shoot the world's largest redwood trees! So far I am extremely impressed with the capabilities of this camera. This is the second RED video I have edited in Adobe Premiere. (the first being shot on the RED ONE MX) Considering I use After Effects and Photoshop every day, I am 100% done with FCP. Premier took me about 1 hour to adjust to. I love being able to edit raw 5K footage (or even 7D footage) without rendering! If you are having trouble deciding on wether or not to switch from FCP to Premiere, JUST DO IT NOW. Trust me. I waited 5 months to switch when I should have waited 5 seconds. The Epic-X is by far the coolest camera I've ever shot with. The capabilities are endless! Vimeo is a great place to lean more about everything! So I want to help every vimeo member out! Feel free to email me, or post any questions you have about my epic, the workflow, or whatever you can dream up! I will answer every single question 100%. Music by Leo Kaliski

En todo caso no tuve tiempo de hacer mucho, ya que la cámara la pude usar solo unos instantes en el hotel donde estaban los representantes de Sony Japón y que me permitieron usarla gracias a las gestiones de Samuel el representante de Sony Latam de Miami y Cristián Maturana de Videocorp en Chile. Por eso es que quisimos empujar la cámara al máximo en sus capacidades de trabajo en ISO alto, ya que por todos los test de imágenes que hay en la web de la A7s sabemos que entrega una imgen espectacular en condiciones óptimas de trabajo; y al llevarla a ISOs altos vimos la real respuesta de la cámara y su gran latitud. here you can find some of the original files; some of them in 60p, others in 23.97p and the slow motion is in 120p and you must to slow it donw in post; all of them handhel and with a no stabilizated lens, very fast, very ruff; but we want to try the worse scenarios: dropbox.com/s/1pi0ed3h6531kpz/para%20subir.rar?n=159175706

                    Ive just received my new Samyang 35mm 1.4 Lens for my Canon 5d Mkii. These are some early test videos (with colouring post production) My initial review of this lens? BELIEVE THE HYPE! Its a beautiful lens! A gorgeous image quality, quite sharp even wide open, great value for money. Its manual Focus and Manual Aperture, not a problem for video work or those who are used to manual photography. I cannot recommend this enough, really great! Got mine for £360 GBP Post Production done in After Effects cs5 I used Magic Lantern Unified Build to assist focusing and exposing, Check out Magic lantern if you havent already, its invaluable to Canon DSLR video users. Also donate generously to their development team!

                    • 4th Of July in S-Log2 w/ Sony a7s


                      from Whitespace Films, LLC Added 5,800 53 41

                      ***Download the original ProRes LT file to see higher quality*** ***Update*** Secondaries color grading sucks when using s-log2 with an 8-bit camera. I didn't really do any of it in this project, but in a recent one for work, I shot in s-log because we were moving quickly and I wanted as many options in post as possible. That was mostly a mistake. It did give me more dynamic range, but when I tried to pull out specific parts of the image to adjust them, it was very difficult to impossible. I've been using Davinci Resolve 11 Lite, and those shots that were out in bright sunlight seemed to be fine, as well as those which I was able to light with a good amount of contrast. But there are a few shots that were run-and-gun style in hallways, and they just look muddy. I can't seem to get them to a good spot, and those specific parts I wanted to highlight (clothing, mostly. The talent had a blue shirt on that I wanted to bring out) were simply the same shade and color as the background, and since 8-bit video only has 256 color values per pixel, I can't get specific enough to key in on just the one in the blue shirt. Very frustrating! So, if you are planning on doing more than applying an overall grade to the image, make sure you either use something with more contrast and saturation than s-log2, or light your scene with good contrast and have those items already "pop-y" in camera. I know there will be loads of people who will test the low light ability of this camera, and that's all great; that knowledge will come in very handy when I film people in a dark stairwell after a tornado knocks out the power. For the rest of the time, though, the kinds of things I typically film are out in either sunlight or somewhat dim light. This past 4th of July I was blessed to get together with a bunch of my extended family at our cabin in Wisconsin and just hang out. I shot this video the same way I would have shot it with a 5DMIII, or any other camera, really. The only real difference was that, because I was using S-Log2 for all of the footage, I had to use ND filters most of the time, and even then the shutter speed was cranked up to compensate for the 3200 ISO rating. I would like to point out that I was utilizing the Zebras function while shooting, so in nearly all of the shots, nothing was clipped on the high end. If some shots appear to be blown out, I can assure you, based on how I shot as well as a waveform scope, that all the detail is still there. I have to say, I prefer the out of camera look of the PP5 setting, and since it allows me to go down to much lower ISOs, it makes shooting a bit more manageable. However, the S-Log2 can really be brought back nicely, and I would even say that, once it's graded, it does look better than the other picture profiles. Not by much, though. I can say that the detail I saw in the footage was very very good, probably on par with downsampled footage I've seen from the GH4, though I haven't looked at any raw files from that camera. None of the footage in this video has been sharpened, so I wonder what that might do to it... Hmmmm.... I have worked a good deal with the Magic Lantern RAW video on the 5DMIII, and I think that the a7s has only slightly less (maybe) dynamic range than the RAW capture on the 5DMIII, but it performs SIGNIFICANTLY better in low light situations. When I would shoot at anything above about ISO 800 with ML RAW, I got nasty vertical banding that looked very electronic. Of course, the a7s does splendidly at ISOs up to 20,000, and is still usable up to 51,200, IMO. I found that, although the rolling shutter in 24p mode is pretty bad when panning, even gently, in front of a pole or similar object, it doesn't necessarily feel bad when panning between people, or when there is only one main movement. If you go back and forth, it becomes more noticeable. Also, the rolling shutter seemed to be almost gone when shooting in a higher frame rate, such as 60p or 120p, as well as when shooting in the cropped APS-C mode. I don't know why this lack of rolling shutter isn't happening in 24p mode; maybe a future firmware update will help it? Battery life was between 60 and 80 minutes of use, and it seemed to drain just as fast whether I was just going through the menus or actively shooting. I have since gotten an external battery made by Anker, along with an AC adapter, and having used it today on a shoot for work, I feel confident that I can use it all day on shoots that require lots of shooting, such as weddings.
