We saw Marco try at the end of last week to upload this video to Vimeo at the highest quality he could, but it kept on failing. The result was worth the wait for an eventual lower bandwidth upload. Essential viewing if you edit DSLR footage and expect to handle Blackmagic Cinema Camera footage in the future.
***Updated with Canon 5D Magic Lantern Firmware***
It seems everybody is after the HDR look these days. Now the lucky owners of some Canon DSLRs can shoot High Dynamic Range video with the new Magic Lantern firmware update.
You shouldn't judge a book by its cover and you shouldn't judge an uploaded movie by its poster frame. When this Canon C300 demo film popped up yesterday we overlooked it, we shouldn't have, it's not your ordinary camera test...
The second round of news, this being the first camera announcement. Building on the strength of the 5DmkII, Canon have launched the EOS C300. Price now looks to be up around $20,000 for the PL mount version. Pictures coutesy of Engadget.
***Updated with embedded video***
Not only did he manage some hands on time, Dan Chung also quizzed Canon's Mike Burnhill for detailed information on codecs, moiré, rolling shutter, accessory compatibility and more.
***Updated with new Canon video***
The EOS 1D has gone full frame and with it Canon have introduced some new features that are of interest to us in the world of video.
Lens flares and light leaks seem to be the flavour of the month, well at least they are better than gratuitous speedramps. Matt Coleman decided to make his own using a DSLR, iPhone and clear tape.
Shane's being trailblazing the use of Canon DSLR's in films, he shot the first HDSLR full length feature. Three videos after the break, an interview and recordings of his NAB presentations, all of them entertaining and packed full of tips.
This 17 minute chat from MacVideo with Rodney Charters proved to be some thoughtful viewing over our morning tea. Lessons to be learnt for shooters and editors.
Whilst waiting for a render to finish in FCP, a colleague mentioned that he had been 'volunteered' to shoot and edit a wedding video. The first big question after 'Why they heck did you volunteer me?' is 'What lenses do I need?'
With all the news about FCPX, we had forgotten about the Canon 5D and expensive lenses currently in the cupboard here on the FCP.co campus. Maybe our glass will have a second life as Philip Bloom shows us this prototype Birger adaptor.
