Visiting China & Tibet (Shot on 5D II ML Raw)
« on: March 13, 2019, 02:58:19 PM »
In autumn of 2018 I traveled through China and visited the cities Shanghai, Chengdu, Xian and Beijing and got to see different world famous sights like the Great Wall of China and the Terracotta Army as well as Tibet and the ride with the Tibet Train for about 33 hours over the highest railway tracks on earth.

Shot on Canon EOS 5D Mark II with Magic Lantern in Raw. Only used the Canon 24-70mm f4 L lens. No gimbal, no drone. 95 % handheld. Maximum resolution  was 1856x1044. Edited in 2.35 aspect ratio and upscaled to 1920x817 for Youtube upload.

Used Adobe Premiere, Adobe After Effects for editing and DaVinci Resolve for color grading in post production.

Your dynamic range is incredible! Nice shots! I watch the entire thing because it was so relaxing. My favorite shots were the pandas!!

I want to know more about your setup. What CF card(s) do you use? Are you shooting 14bit raw or 12bit or 10bit?

Hey, sorry for the late replay. Just didn't see there was a reply.

Thanks! Actually the dynamic range was the one thing I really didn't like about using the 5D II, especially during my time in Tibet with its really strong sun. But recovered at least some during colorgrading.

I used two CF cards from SanDisk: https://www.amazon.de/SanDisk-Extreme-CompactFlash-Speicherkarte-160MB/dp/B00ECEVFFO/ref=sr_1_2?__mk_de_DE=%C3%85M%C3%85%C5%BD%C3%95%C3%91&keywords=cf+karte&qid=1564676252&s=luggage&sr=1-2-catcorr

Since raw recording really needs lots and lots of space I had to do backups every evening. I shot 14bit raw.
