Shot and edited over the weekend. Been wanting to test out the Canon 35mm f2 IS and see whether or not it would be good for shooting on the M, especially with regards to image stabilization hand held.

Mixed it up with 3x crop to get an additional 100mm+ focal length for tight detail shots.

Shot 1080p MLV RAW
ISO 100 throughout
Aperture kept between f2-4

Cranked up shutter speed to adjust for exposure as needed.

Decided to break out my Canon EOS M with magic lantern raw and see how the EF-S 10-22mm performs in terms of field of view when attached to a Viltrox focal reducer.

Just finished uploading EOS M RAW vlog:

Shot on Canon EOS M with magic lantern RAW. 2.8K upscaled to 4K.

Viltrox focal reducer coupled with Canon ef-s 17-55mm f2.8 and Sigma 18-35mm f1.8 for night shots.

Shot this few days ago. Initially was gonna be a magic lantern vlog on catching the arrival of Ramadan with some moon sighting.

But, ended up being about finding happiness and staying optimistic in these times.

I've mixed footage between magic lantern raw (mcm rewired upscaled to 4K), lumix G85 (shot 4K 8-bit), and cell phone (Instagram live feed).

Can you tell what's magic lantern raw vs what's not?

Shot and edited this yesterday.

EOS M Magic Lantern 2.5K (3x crop).
Canon's FD 35-105 macro zoom with a Pixco focal reducer
MLVApp to Prores Upscaled to 4K

Mostly shot at 35mm, (with 3x crop: 105mm macro)

Every time I slap on that lens, I just go into playtime mode.

I've had that lens since October, and love it more and more each time I use it.

I shot this over Labor Day weekend. This project was bit of a learning curve.

Local Centro islamico was a sponsor at a convention and so I was requested to cover that and help them put together a highlight video.

Idea was to cover their presents at the Expo, as well as the sponsor session and off site visit to the center.

256 GB was not enough..

Nearly 500 gigs of RAW footage. Getting that processed and exported was time-consuming to say the least.

I exported everything to 4K in prores but then realized I'm never going to get this thing done so I ended up downsampling to 1080p.

Overall, not bad for a relatively short turnaround.

A little action from this past Sunday. Had some fun with my Tokina 11-16 on my EOS M.

Share Your Videos / Canon EOS M on a Celestron Powerseeker Telescope!

My wife got me this Celestron Powerseeker 127eq telescope a couple years ago but I hadn't opened it until recently.

I wasn't interested so much in stargazing except that I wanted to also be able to take photos and videos of celestial objects.

When I found out I can get an adapter for my Canon EOS M camera and use the telescope like a massive lens - I made the purchase and assembled the telescope.

After assembly, I went out to see if I can capture the moon rise with it.

One of the challenges though is that EOS M  is not very good in low light but Raw flexibility is great. However, after uploading to YouTube, got quite a bit of banding as a result.

After this experience I've realized that I've got quite a bit of learning to do when it comes to the use of the telescope itself.

This past weekend we celebrated Eid (commemoration of the pilgrims performing Hajj and the legacy of Abraham).

I figured I'd capture what I can at the local Centro Islamico here in Houston.

Shot on Canon EOS M "handheld" using my gun stock stabilizer. Lenses used: Tokina 11-16 f2.8 and Helios 44-2 58mm f2.

I absolutely love the Helios!

Recently purchased the Canon 80-200 f2.8L lens off of eBay. Shot a bunch of stuff on my Canon EOS M with Magic Lantern.

This review was shot in raw too (I'm gonna stop doing that..too much space used!)

This video goes into showcasing the lens focusing ability, stabilization, speed, usability and use cases, equipment I used to shoot the moon with, and cost.

Quarter Moon from August 7, 2019.
Video is sped up 500%

Shot on Canon EOS M with Magic Lantern Raw 2.5K Upscaled to 4K.

  • Canon FD 135mm f3.5 at f5.6
  • Canon EF 80-200 f2.8 L at f7.1

Effective focal ranges being 1080mm (135mm on crop sensor and 5x internal crop) and 1600mm (200mm on crop sensor and 5x internal crop).

I tried using a 2x teleconverter with the 135mm, but I couldn't get it to infinity focus with it on. I do have a 1000mm telescope that I need to assemble. Looking forward to using that on Aug 15th Full Moon rise along the Houston Skyline. Hopefully it'll be a clear day then. In the mean time, this is what I captured last night.

Karate video shot with 80-200 2.8 L "Magic Drainpipe" handheld.

Tried doing this thing in slow mo.

I thought I got all the bad frames out from the RAW recording but looks like a couple of them slipped through the cracks

  • Monday, 2 hours of shooting resulting in 40 minutes of footage.
  • Tuesday, 2 hours to color grade in MLV app, then about 20 hours for PC to process.
  • Wednesday, another four hours spent editing.
  • Thursday, First pass finding all the good moments which was about 10 minutes worth out of 40. Second pass was editing to audio.
  • Friday, recording the voice over and editing that in, which was about another hour. Then finally rendering out and uploading.

"Cupcake" Baby Shower Short documentary shot on Canon EOS M using Magic Lantern Raw at 2.5K with 5x crop along with an Ashahi Super Takumar 50mm f1.4 vintage lens.

This video is first foray into 2.5K using the EOS M which I upscaled to 4K following Zeek's tutorials on YouTube.

Used an Ashahi Super Takumar 50mm f1.4 (m42 to EF) with a .7x viltrox speedbooster (EF to EF-M) which at 5:1 crop (Effectively 250mm) had me shooting super close up indoors.

I think I pushed the coloring a bit far resulting in a lot of grain, but overall I think it came out good.
