AbelCine Rental Kits: RED EPIC/Scarlet (VIDEO)

There’s nothing like the experience of our Rental department to build the most complete, battle-tested camera kits for our camera owner and renal house sales clients. In the first of our series “AbelCine Rental Kits,” we look at our RED EPIC camera packages. This same kitting can be applied to the RED Scarlet camera.

Watch the video for a detailed explanation of the components that go into the AbelCine RED EPIC/Scarlet Accessory Kit. For your convenience, we have created an accessory package (available in Anton/Bauer and V-Mount options) that includes all the items in a typical rental setup.

S-Log and the Sony F3: Application

In the third part of my S-Log series I took the Sony F3 outside on a nice bright day to show what S-Log can do. Jeff Lee and I headed up to the roof of AbelCine and found some shade to stand in, this allowed us to show the most contrast possible. I shot the blog in S-Log as well as in the standard video modes with the AbelRange profile that I created earlier this year. This way I can show just what S-Log enables in the camera. All the clips in the video, except the last one, were recorded to the Gemini 4:4:4 recorder. The Gemini records in uncompressed DPX stacks so nothing was lost along the way. The last shot was S-Log out to a PIX240 recorder in ProRes422 HQ, this was enabled with the new F3 1.31 firmware from Sony. I graded all of the shots in DaVinci Resolve Lite. The difference between S-Log and my range profile can be slight at times, but pay close attention to highlight areas, especially the skin highlights. Thanks to Isaac Kiener from sales for helping out. Stay tuned for the last part of the series on look up tables in the camera.

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.
