Hi everyone,

This is my first post and I wanted to group here some of the testing I've been doing lately. Everything was graded in resolve with cinelog-c luts...

 So here are links:

Dynamic range test-

Slowmotion in 1080p 2:35:1 -

Trying a book light diffusion setup for a portrait shot (shot on 85mm) -

Vietnam travel video 1 (older but more shots)- 
Vietnam travel video 2 (more recent but shorter)-

Anyway, I hope we can discuss some technical and non technical stuff. I feel like the 5d is slowly dying with the new cameras coming out each days but I still love it. It taught me a lot about color and the importance of good color science. Also that you can't really make miracles in grading. You gotta have the colors right in the first place and we should always shoot that way. I used to tend to be lazy because of the new technology that seems to make everything easier for us. Dynamic range is a good exemple. I use to think that it was the most important thing but in a way, if you're smart you can get around it and the 11 stops (or whatever it is) from the 5d is fine as you can see in my dynamic range test. What do you think?

Long live magic lantern and what it brought us all!  :)

Thomas

5D is not dying as long as there is no other affordable full frame raw camera

Great shots! Do you use the Highlight Recovery checkbox in Resolve? If so, do you ever get artifacts (pixelation, aliasing, etc)?
