3.5K RAW Video from a trip to Taiwan
« on: October 21, 2019, 05:09:56 AM »
Thanks so much, ML team.

This is a little video I shot on a trip to Taiwan with my girlfriend and her family in January of 2019. The video was shot with a Canon 5D MKIII with Magic Lantern firmware. The shots were captured in 3.5K raw mode. I used a canon 24-70 and 40mm pancake lens.

Wow.. loved every single shot!! Do you have any more videos to share using the MKIII?

How did you pan the camera so smoothly?

Wow I was in Taiwan in January as well this year. But at that time I had not discovered the power of the Magic Lantern Raw video yet so I only took Photos with my Canon 5D2. Still happy with the results though.

These are very beautiful footage. Thank you for sharing.

That’s some legendary stuff @paulheran!

What was the highest ISO used in this?

Care to share your workflow in post?

^ I agree. My favorite shots were the Gondola and the drill scene. So magical

This is really good. Impressive.
The scene at 1m10s is like a paint. I would easily print that and put on my wall.
The motion blur is great too, very cinematic. MKIII never disappoints.
Well done @paulheran!

Look at his other videos. On some commercials you'll see "Paul Heran -- Director of Photography". :)

@ngemu, Thank you for watching!. That was all hand held, or just putting the camera on a smooth surface and rotating as smoothly as possible. I did use some warp stabilizer in Premiere as well.

Thanks all for the kind words! I am grateful to be part of such a positive and creative community.

Here is a little more info on my settings and post process:

I  use the Komputer Bay 256GB 1200x card. I captured 3.5K Raw video in a 2.72:1 aspect ratio. I used MLVFS to convert to CDNG files and then DaVinci Resolve to convert to Apple ProRes 422 HQ files with the Black Magic Film gamma. Before exporting in Resolve I will try to get a good exposure with all the raw data, meaning if I under exposed the image, I will do a minor lift in Resolve. In Premiere Pro CC I applied the EOSHD Lut and did some minor tweaks to contrast/saturation, but the the image you get with this lut is pretty incredible as is. I can't stress enough how helpful the EOSHD raw shooter guide is. I go back to it every time I find myself wanting to dabble with Magic Lantern raw on my 5DMKIII.
