    • Nikon D5200 Footage Graded in DaVinci Resolve Compared to Original

      The original footage was shot with the Standard Picture Control setting, ISO 100, WB Direct Sunlight and the original Nikon firmware at 24Mbps. The lenses used are all manual primes Nikkor lenses, 24mm f2.8, 35mm f2.8, 55m micro f2.8, all set to f5.6 when shooting. The footage was graded and sharpened in DaVinci Resolve Lite. Shadows were lifted a lot and got a green tint, while the shots with the trees got a hue edit on yellow-greens. Shadows seem to perform really well when lifted as they contain a lot of detail, invisible when ungraded.

              • D800 extreme DR test (Flaat_13p beta 2)

                Test footage shot by Zhao Yan. Beta-2 is a bit less ambitious, goes for 12.7 stops of DR, vs 13.2 with beta-1. And it looks a lot better. The camera is still crushing a lot of the information before the picture control is applied (see the video vs RAW still comparison at the end), but at least now, with some noise reduction, the footage is acceptable. And it looks a lot better than pushing up in post a standard image. In any case, Flaat_13p is a specialty picture control, for those cases where you need as much dynamic range as you can get. For day-to-day use, Flaat_10p or Flaat_11p would be my preferred options. You can find them all here: http://www.similaar.com/foto/flaat-picture-controls/index.html

                    Since i found out about this new picture style from Alvaro Yus, i had to test it right away. It was said to be better for shadow detail without blowing the highlights. So i did a simple test with a black couch and some black objects on it. The window is used for highlight performance measuring. Tested are the standard picture styles 'Neutral' (Nikon), TassinFlat (Blackpeppers) and the AlvaroYus (Alvaro Yus). I forgot to shoot in 720p, instead i used 1080p. I converted the edited 1080p raw (uncompressed avi) video to 720p mp4 with the bitrate 20.000 kb/s. So it has to be sufficient enough for good comparison. I noticed some compression artefacts in the Noise reduction part. That's due to the converting process i guess. I will definitely do some more testing this week. techspecs: - Nikon d7000, firmware: 1.02 - Tamron AF 17-50mm f2.8 (IF) (Without vr) - Shot at 1080p f2.8, iso400 - Noise reduction: Normal - Color space: Adobe RGB - Sharpness: 3

                      Third Episode of Nikon D7000 Video Tricks. In this episode I show you differences from 0 to 9 Sharpen with AlvaroYus-Curve Picture Control applied. Most people think that 0 Sharpen is the best for a right adjustment in post, but if you try it you will see that is not true, it appears some strange artifacts when you try to add Sharpen in post. Second reason is that with 0 Sharpen is really hard to know if the scene is focused or not. In my experience working in post with Unsharp Mask and other Sharpen filters is that 2 or 3 Sharpen in camera is the best value (AlvaroYus-Curve comes with 3 Sharpen).
