      MAGIC LANTERN 14 BIT RAW ON THE CANON 5D MARK III. Software on SD Card. EQUIPMENT CANON 5D MARK III CANON EF 100ml 2.8 L MACRO LENS LEXAR PROFESSIONAL 1000x 128GB COMPACT FLASH CARD WORKFLOW 1. Copied Raw files to computer. (Optional) 2. RAWMagic Version 1.0 (convert raw files into DNG Sequences) 3. Import into CC After Effects and colour corrected with Adobe Raw on import. 32bit Comps at 1920 x 1080. 4. Revisit colour correction with Adobe Raw utilising Adobe Bridge. 5. H264 output from After Effects for Vimeo. ProRes 444 HQ for high quality output. This is a re-visit for me to shoot wasp's again, although this time it was using Magic Lantern software to shoot in 14bit raw. I used Canon's EOS Utility software to control the camera from inside my house so that I wouldn't get stung. I had limited success with this software. At time's it would lock up and I would need to restart the application. It was also sometimes hard to know if we were still recording or not as you needed to listen to the beep from the camera. The Lexar Card was great. I was able to record for several minutes at a time without any drop frame issues that I could notice. I didn't test the record times beyond what I needed. It took a long time to get the Magic Lantern software to install correctly in the beginning. It was hard to find one instruction video or list that covered everything that was required to know how to install it on to my camera and having it sit on the SD card and not on the CF card.

      • How do paper wasps upcycle? – AskNature Nuggets


        from Biomimicry Institute Added 3,410 6 0

        If you check under the eaves of your home or garage, you might notice that paper wasps have been busy building nests. Through wind, rain, and snow, those nests provide a sturdy and waterproof home for wasp colonies. But how are they made at from what materials? Sherry Ritter, one of our favorite biologists at the design table, explains. AskNature Nuggets | Episode 19 ---------------- Transcript: This is a paper wasp’s nest. I find these fascinating not only because they’re beautiful but because they’re actually just made out of cellulose (or chewed up wood) and saliva. Now the wasp uses a saliva that has a lot of protein in it and that protein mixed with the cellulose creates a water insoluble but also waterproof covering. Now, it’s interesting that in rainy environments, they actually use more protein in their saliva in order to make it more waterproof. And because protein is pretty expensive from a wasp’s standpoint because they have to go get more insects to get more protein, they’re only going to use it if they really need it. So if this is in a dry environment or protected from overhead, they’re not going to use as much protein. So I’m wondering if we can use this idea to make non-toxic, waterproof paper or other biodegradable materials. (Holds up honeycomb) And in case you wondered, this is what the inside of the nest looks like… but that’s another story.

              • THE NEST - Polistes Wasps


                from Boswell Added 100 0 0

                Even though this video is not even remotely about wasps, I asked an expert to identify the talent here "These are Umbrella Wasps or Polistes wasps. They are not really yellowjackets. Yellowjackets build nests completely encircled with masticated paper and a single opening through which the wasps enter and leave the nest. Depending on species, the nest may be underground (i.e. subterranean), in trees like willows, in stumps, under eaves on a building, or even in attics or wall voids. In any event, yellowjackets do not construct uncovered open nests like in your video. Also, Polistes wasps have a characteristic posture. When at rest they hold their wings V-shaped outwards. Yellowjackets fold their wings next to their body, not outwards. There are many species of umbrella-type wasps around the world. Based on the shape, size and color of what I can see, my guess is that the species setting up shop in your garage is Polistes exclamans or a close relative. Don R. Donald A.

                  from Harje Amaru Added 79 0 0

                  Paper wasps build nests around our home in the warm months. We are happy to have them as they reduce the number of destructive pests in our vegetable garden. They are fascinating to watch... at a respectful distance. Zoom lens comes handy for this. Shot with a Canon FS10. This is a short piece assembled in iMovie. The image is flipped vertically. You may note the two wasps at the (top) are holding droplets of fluid, may be water.
