Canon 5D mkIII RAW Sample Footage

May 27, 2013  |  5D3

So I decided to test out the RAW on the 5D mkIII. I used a ND filter, which made the footage not as sharp as other videos out there. Keep this in mind when shooting with ND. Some filters soften footage. Next time I’m gonna shoot in the late evening with no ND.

Sony F55 & Canon 1DC – 4K side by side

April 3, 2013  |  Sony Cameras

Check out this comparison video between the Canon 1DC and Sony F55. Hands down the winner is the Sony F55, but the 1DC, for the price, is not a bad choice. I really love that Sony is just kicking RED’s ass and that RED is just scared and trying to sue them for patents. Sony and ARRI are the true leaders in Cinema.

Fotodiox Lens Mount Adapter, Nikon G, D-Type Lens to Canon EOS camera

Fotodiox Lens Mount Adapter, Nikon G, D-Type Lens to Canon EOS camera

If you own a Canon DSLR and either have newer Nikkor lenses, you’ll need this adapter. With the new Nikkor lenses, they do not have a manual aperture ring so what this adapter does is to manually overide the iris. It’s a nifty little thing, it’s not a perfectly smooth perfection, but for about $20, it’s awesome. I’m using a Nikkor 50mm 1.4, and a Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8 and it works perfect. I’ll have a video describing the adapter and show footage very soon.

Kessler Crane Products review

December 7, 2012  |  Gear, Kessler Crane

If you own Kessler Crane gear you’ll know they are one of the best at pretty affordable prices. You can choose smaller sliders like the Philip Bloom edition or the larger more professional sliders or a fully automated timelapse controller for awesome timelapse shots. Outstanding quality and affordable prices, I highly recommend Kessler Crane products.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH3 Mirrorless Digital Camera (Black) – Sample Video

03 Dec

Wow! What a beautiful video from Joe Simon Films. This new Panasonic GH3 has so much detail and sharpness from the image that I believe a lot of people will be struck by the quality. This image very detailed and performs a lot better in low light than it’s little brother the GH2. Check out the specs. What I am liking about this camera compared to my Canon 5D mkIII, is the the full resolution 1920×1080 60p! It has a much higher bitrate than the GH2 (non-hacked) at 72 Mbps ALL-I. An outstanding clear OLED LCD that flips and rotates, WIFI, weather sealed body, so many features for only $1299 (body only).

I wanted to share this wonderfully shot promo for Aston Martin, all shot with a Canon C300. The camera we all know produced incredibly sharp images and stunning color rendition. Aston Martins have always been a favorite car of mine and I thought the visuals and landscapes in this video make you want to travel to England and buy one!



SONY NEX-EA50H review and footage by Alister Chapman

28 Nov

My work just ordered the Sony NEX-EA50U for event and corporate production. I believe this camera will be a really nice production tool. I’ve been shooting with DSLRs since 2008 and I’m looking forward in shooting with this camera. It’s a shoulder mounted ENG style camera which means you don’t need additional rigs to hold it. Just take it, with a good set of sticks, and off you go. Here’s a great review showing how versatile and sharp the picture is. It’s not in the same class as the Canon C100 or Sony FS700, but for $3500, you get XLR Pro audio inputs, a nice 18-200mm motorized zoom lens, auto focus, facial recognition, auto iris, zebras, peaking and much much more.

This is a great test of the all new Canon C100 Cinema Camera. I posted a couple other tests so far but this one is the best. You can really see the fine detail of this sensor, especially in the rocks and sand. I know a lot of people that will sell off all of their DSLRs to buy this, hell, I might do the same!


Canon C100 vs. 5D Mark III

November 26, 2012  |  C100  |  , , ,

Really there’s no comparison, but nevertheless, a good test. The Canon C100 has tons more detail and sharpness than the 5D mkIII.  The amount of detail that the C100 has compared to the 5d mkIII is like comparing a Honda Accord with a Ferrari! Yeah, that much! Just check out the video and compare.

Everyone is awaiting results from the Canon C100 EOS Cinema Camera. Compared to the Sony FS700, I believe the C100 is the winner. Cleaner at high ISOs, no surprise since it has the same sensor as the C300. This little camera is going to be a killer!
