60 Minutes with the Canon C300

source:shooteditlearn.com

I was at InFocus last week and Canon was kind enough to let us take out the C300 for an hour and shoot around South Charleston, SC.

I wanted to see how the camera felt on the Glidecam 4000HD handheld with various lenses. We used Canon L – 14mm, 35mm, 50mm and 85mm.

We also used the Kessler Stealth slider with the Manfrotto 755CX3 tripod and 701 head. This is a super small setup, it’s nice to know you can still use such a big camera on it. At one point we had the 300mm on this setup.

I did some light coloring on the edit with FCP and Magic bullet, but not much.

The last two shots were at the highest ISOs, one at 4000, and the other at 12,400. On the final glidecam shot we were on the 85mm and at f5.6 so I would have enough focal plane to keep the actor in focus. It’s pretty awesome this was lit with the street light and stopped down to 5.6 and still doesn’t have too much grain.

Four shooters discuss their impressions of the new Canon C300 after a day out shooting a short called ‘Bob the Aviator’. James Velacot of Cherryduck productions, DOP Andy Jackson, freelance Felix Clay and dslrnewsshooter’s Dan Chung used the camera to film in a ‘real world’ shooting environment.

Canon C300 Test Film

This film is a Test of the Canon C300 camera using Canon ef lenses.
We filmed different scenes around Chelsea in London to see how the C300 dealt with the varied conditions offered on a London street.
It was a very windy day so were dealing with sun in & out, a bit of rain and generally the constant changing weather you get on location.
This was our 1st proper opportunity to use the C300 and try out it’s form factor.
It performed very well holding detail in highlights and also shadows where we didn’t expect and because of the quality of the LCD screen and viewfinder it is much easier to operate.
The Camera was set to 1920 x 1080 @ 50m/bs – 25p we used the Normal 3 Gamma curve & Matrix.
I have set Vimeo to play this at 1080P so it may take longer to playback but please comment if you want it back at the standard 720.

Lens Test w/ Zeiss ZE and CP2′s, Canon L Series and Leica R Glass

Shane Hurlbut has posted a lens test on his blog. The video is locked to the blog so you will have to click here to check it out.

We have been using Canon, Leica, and Zeiss lenses but haven’t had the chance to compare them all side by side. Shane saw this as a good learning exercise and asked us to put together a lens test. We used 18 lenses, lit the scenes with our home depot lighting kit, and spent a day shooting four scenarios to compare the aesthetics between the lenses for video. We kept our settings consistent between the lenses and here are our results. Take them with a grain of salt as it’s not a definitive test but more of a practical observation.
