5.7k 5DIII with vintage lenses
« on: April 28, 2017, 07:28:12 PM »
Hello all, I've been playing around with the new 3k/4k/5k options a lot and I wanted to see how my older lenses held up. I drove up into the mountains and grabbed a few shots around sunset just testing different things out, trying to push the camera as much as I could. All of it was shot in the new full res liveview mode at 5.7k, 7.5fps, 14bit lossless, 2.35 crop. It was very stable, only had to restart the camera once. I suspect the waveform monitor was using too many resources so after disabling that things were fine.

Lenses used:
Zeiss Jena Flektogon 35mm f2.4
Helios 44-4m 58mm f2
Nikkor 180mm ED Ai-S
Rokinon 14mm T3.1 Cine (not vintage but an inexpensive lens that I like a lot).

I also wanted to see how well this would perform for grabbing b-roll as a 2nd camera on shoots with the A camera is something that shoots 4k natively. So far I'm very pleased.

I just want to say... This is AMAZING :o watched it a couple of hours ago, looked incredible. Wish I had a 5k display :D
Also reassuring to see old lenses holding up so well to that resolution :)
Edit: what bit depth is that? Or is it lossless?

Thank you. I wish I had a 4 or 5k display too, just 1920x1200 (x3) for now.

I'm very pleased with these older lenses. I love the color, contrast, ease of use. I don't see any reason to get anything different for the time being. It's almost as if using a lens that isn't perfectly sharp at higher resolutions somehow looks nicer... less like video.

Oh I'm definitely with you on this one.

Yeah it's my favorite lens. I sold a Sigma Art 35mm after using the Flektogon for a bit, I liked it that much. It's not as sharp or as fast as the Sigma but that got boring fast. At least for me.

Now we will see a lot of shorts that future 7,5fps sync  ;)
No but really it looks good. The fps can be used for aesthetic purposes I assume..

For previewing your shoots do you switch to photo live view? Trying to get it working on my end but in 1.85:1, but interesting to know how you see your pic/framing?

Best,
