Share Your Videos / Toyota Land Cruiser & girls... ML RAW video
« on: November 12, 2014, 11:34:00 AM »


This is my last video. I recorded it with a t4i in raw with the unvaluable help of Magic Lantern. My workflow was as follow: shoot everything with a lot of care of not clipping any highlight in the focus ponts area (the damned pink dots), use batchelor3 with raw2dng_cs2x2 to extract the DNGs, develop them in After Effects with Adobe Camera Raw and exported a clip with all the videos in Black Magic's 4:4:4 10bit codec. Then I edited it in Premiere Pro, added a LUT and some grain... whoa! Takes a lot of waiting for all those operations, but I love the end result!

ML's raw option has opened a new world of possibilities for this little camera. The cons: short? record time at 2:1 1536x768 (about 14 seconds at 24fps), the chroma smoothing introduces some little artifacts, hard to notice after the compression, and it has a little aliasing depending on what you are shooting. And also all the steps needed before editing. Nothing complicated, but can get very time consuming. The pros: eeeeverything else!! Great colors, latitude, shadow recovery, detail... it blows up 1080p h264 from the camera. Even scaled up! The pros are really more important to the final image than the cons. But really have to know raw is not for everyday projects.

I'm sure you guys are going to like it!!  :P

Share Your Videos / Raw video with the 650D - Summer in Costa del Sol
« on: September 21, 2014, 07:09:04 PM »

This is my first real world try with raw video in the 650D. I used raw2dng_cs2x2 to get rid of the pink dots, and it did an excellent job despite the resolution. I recorded at 1344x672 which gave me continous recording and a few shots in 1600x800 but this only gave me 10 seconds or so.
I had seen a lot of tests of raw quality, but needed some skin tones, real world shooting conditions, not only leaves and that stuff!

I used a Tokina 11-16 and the Canon 50mm 1.8. For the underwater images I used an old EwaMarine case I had for an HDV camera. Also used a Flycam 5000 steadycam and a Hague K8 jib.

You can see it here:

The process is a bit tedious, being the worse converting to dngs because of the time needed, but the result in image quality and the control over the image that you get from raw, is simply amazing. It really hurts to see the h264 now!!

I hope you like it!
