Hi all, This is a recent show reel from the 5D3/Magic Lantern Hybrid and whilst it doesn't afford the fastest turn around the results are worth the wait. Enjoy Feedback or discussion on what workflow people find to be the best would be welcomed. Richard Brooks Media Producer-Palau
I've always wanted to try the Canon 5D III with Magic Lantern underwater. In theory I felt shooting in raw would be more beneficial underwater than on land given the issues with accurate white balance and loss of light with every increment of depth. Unfortunately the post workflow is tedious and time consuming. I think once you get the hang of it, it will get faster and to me it was worth it. Below were the results and my workflow in post. Workflow: Canon set to raw module and not MLV (need the speed of CF and not the sound) Clips check and marked in/out thru MLV raw viewer Lightroom/Capture one for correction and enhancements and exported 8-bit tiff Compressor to convert to ProRes 422 FCPX for video editing Motion for text Compressor to convert for upload
Hello fellow Wetpixellers, I am interested in learning more about shooting and editing with the RAW footage available from ML hacked 5Diii's What are people using out there and what seems to be the best solution? I am currently using FCP 7 and PP CS4 so a solution using either of these would be best. I've heard about the RAW2DNG plugin that's available. How does that work? Any help would be appreciated. Many thanks Richard
First of all, I have to put this disclaimer: This is still a hack of the Canon firmware and there's a possibility that you can damage your camera. Canon will NOT honor warranty on firmware fried cameras if using non-Canon firmware. SO CAVEAT EMPTOR and understand the risks. I first have been trying the latest version of Magic Lantern V2.3 on the 5D2 for a week before delivering it to its new owner and it has impressed me. All the features I wish I had on the 5D2 is now in this firmware, including the intervalometer, zebra, focus peaking and HDR mode. While the sensor performance doesn't even get close to the 5D3, it does certainly breath new life into the 5D2 (which is discontinued) and other Canon DSLR. Best of all, many of these new functions can be used in Photo mode as well, displaying it after the pic is taken. The one feature I most look forward to using is the intervalometer, which Nikon users have. There's an exposure ramping mode where the timelapse will correct for exposure without turning night into day due to metering issues and there're even sunset/rise modes. Here's an example: [vimeohd]44372899[/vimeohd] Another tool is the automatic HDR bracketing, which I'll just show the video below, what is possible: [vimeohd]36863089[/vimeohd] I didn't have too much time but I can't wait for the 5D3 firmware to be available. I may just go get a 60D just to start shooting! Remember, this is still a hack so understand the risks! Enjoy
