Hi @jakebrusha I started a topic that might interest you.

Please note that the sensor gathers data and much depends on how that data is "developed" so to speak. CineStyle and the Canon color profiles don't affect the raw video--well, maybe it can as I'm starting to find out but it is all about what you do in post.

You can find more information about LUTs here:

Thank you so much! This is what I was hoping for! I will be spending the evening researching through this topic. It's funny, I've been using raw for a long time now, but since i bought a small HD 502 monitor I've been trying to get some sort of "log lut" for my 5d3 raw. The idea of that is pretty funny, i know, but i want a more accurate representation of the highlights I'm losing/saving in camera.

I personally use the Landscape Picture Style , even thou it's very contrasty it seem to get the closest
reputation of the sensor raw data you see in dng's
Here a comment from a1ex about that , if any one would know Re: What PICTURE STYLE to use while recording RAW

Thank you again! I will be giving this a shot as well. I appreciate your responses :D



Raw Video / Any LUT for viewing raw sensor data vs canon color profiles?
« on: December 08, 2015, 07:21:20 PM »
Hi all,

Been using ML Raw for years now and I'm wondering if there's some way to have a LUT or canon profile that is more accurate than cinestyle or a neutral canon color profile to get a better representation of what the sensor is recording while I'm shooting. Has anyone ever created anything more proficient? I would be extremely appreciative for any information in regards to this.

Thank you in advance,


which CF card do you use?

Lexar 1066x 64 gb

Hey Deafeyejedi, I shot it all with 50mm 1.2 or 70-200mm 2.8.

As for workflow, I shot them all raw at 60fps giving me about 10 seconds of record time at 1920x506. I kept the ISO at 160 for the majority of this stuff because I was under the impression that it's the least noisy ISO setting. Correct me if I'm wrong!

I used RawMagic Lite to convert to DNGs, Then opened the DNGs in Resolve Lite, stretched them out to 1920x818. I colored the images in Resolve and bounced prores 4444s to edit with. Made my edits in premiere then bounced a prores 4444 as a final output. I then uploaded that prores 4444 to vimeo.

Go ahead and download any of these videos in the original format on my vimeo and you'll see what I'm talking about. The vimeo compression of the prores 4444 is harsh. Any suggestions would be appreciated!

Thanks :)

I was out on shoot in LA two weeks ago and for fun in the downtime took my 5d3 ML raw out and had some fun with 60fps. I shot these 4 short spec spots. Enjoy! And if anyone has any feedback on why they look a lot more grainy on Vimeo please let me know. The prores 4444 looks a lot cleaner and flawless.

Thanks in advance,

Here is a short my friends and I made last winter time to test ML raw. We shot it all in one day, had some fun and froze our nuts off.

I colored it myself in Divinci with very limited knowledge of color correction.

I've finally decided to release it publicly on vimeo. Let me know what you all think.

I love this, man! Great work  :)

This looked beautiful! Loved the spot.

I'm curious to know what you used for viewing the feed of the camera on the drone. Thanks!

Nice job!

Thanks, Rainless!

wow awesome. really great idea and superb execution!

did you shoot in raw? what camera and lenses?

Hi Nahlanee,

Thank you for your kind words. I shot this all in raw, and only a few shots were on my 7d in H.264. I used mostly canon 50mm F 1.2 and 24-105mm F 4.

I really liked the sequence at the beginning showing the 'unloved' gifts, and those kids look really excited to be getting those presents. What a great idea.

Wonderful choice of a VO artist too.

Thank you, QuickHitRecord! I am glad you liked it!

I shot this last Christmas to highlight a holiday card we made.

Feel free to comment and question!

Nice Work! Looks like you got some beautiful images. How big was your crew for this project and how many days did it take you to shoot? I am thinking of embarking on a similar project soon, and I am just trying to get an idea of what to expect since it's my first music video.


Hey derpface,

Thanks for the kind words! Our crew was really small, actually. It was the co-director and me and the artist. We hauled the doors and gear out into the wilderness ourselves. Haha. We shot this project over 3 days, but I'm sure had we had a crew of a few more people we would've been able to do it in 2 days.

Let me know if you have any more questions!

This looks great!

Did you experience a lot of fixed pattern noise / vertical banding stripes when shooting at higher ISO? You did mention that you used neat video. Every time I'm shooting 50fps at high ISOs I get really bad vertical banding.

Very nice video and I love it a lot! I have one simple question: you mentioned you used RawMagic Lite to convert the raw footage to dng. But as I shoot MLV the RawMagic Lite does not work with the MLV file. Have you used MIRawViewer to make the conversion?

Hey John,

I do use MLRawViewer but I only use it to preview the footage before converting it with RawMagic Lite. I don't shoot MLV Raw because I like to leave a lot of additional features on while shooting. I can't do that with MLV raw.

I've also found that MLRawViewer doesn't work as well with the raw 1.0 files versus MLV 2.0. I also prefer the debayering that RawMagic Lite does with vertical stripes correction.

Hope that helps!

Incredible quality!I try to do the same with my footages.....with no success.

There is no way for you tu have more explanations from the expert colorist about what he done with your footages?
You give him a Visionlog version??

Hi Sylvain_c,

I can try to explain as best what I did to prep everything for the colorist. But the colorist was a professional and his work far exceed my color correction ability to help make our video really look stunning.

To start, I converted everything with RawMagic Lite to DNG files. Then I imported those DNG files to Davinci Resolve to create the ProRes 4444 video files. I wanted to make the coloring process as easy as possible so I figured ProRes 4444 (12 bit) files would be more than sufficient. Once in Davinci, I only stretched the Raw files from 1920x506 to 1920x818 (since I shot it all at 48fps), and flattened everything to a BlackMagic super flat profile setting.

I did all my editing in Premiere Pro and when I was done I exported one final ProRes 4444 file for color correction. Normally that's not how it would be done, but for timing's sake we wanted to make it as simple as possible. I have had problems before linking and relinking files from Premiere to Davinci, so this was the easiest/safest bet.

The colorist then brought the master file into his Davinci studio and he used many layers and nodes to effect individual colors in the video and make certain colors pop, and certain colors drop. He added sharpening, contrast, slight grain and many other minor adjustments to each shot to help bring the whole piece more cohesively together.

I wish I could give you more in depth explanation but I'm really not that versed in Davinci myself. That's why we paid for the professional service. But I hope this helps a little bit.

Great work , Curious about what you used to light the couch scene

Hi pacman829,

Thanks for watching!

For this whole video we only used available lighting and a bounce. We were fortunate with perfect weather.

Excellent cinematography.

I'm really blown away by the images coming out of the 5D3. In terms of quality it might not technically be as powerful as a GH4 or A7S... but in terms of actually finished videos... there's really no contest. least not yet.

Can you tell me a bit about the lenses and grading you used?

Hi Rainless,

thank you for the kind words. It was a fun project.

I think that the 5d3 raw feature being much higher bit depth is more powerful than the GH4 (10bit with optional external recorder) and A7s (8bit). It's much more workflow but for filmic images and with intent to color 5d3 raw is definitely stronger suited.

For lenes, we only used 2. Canon 50mm 1.2 and a few shots were on the Canon 24-70 2.8. I thought it would be fun to limit myself and have to be more creative with shots.

And for grading, we went to a professional color correcting house. We didn't use the raw files but instead used 12bit Prores 4444 files to grade in divinci resolve.

Let me know if you've got any more questions and thanks for taking the time to check the video out!
