Our recent musicvideo shot w. Canon 7D & RR DSLR Cinema Field bundle

3377259391_b7e8e01c48We did two musicvideos in october, one shot with the Sony EX-1 and the RedrockMicro M2Encore 35mm. DOF adapter, and one with the new Canon 7D (with RedrockMicro Cinema Field rig).





The first “EX1” clip may not be released into the public domain yet (maybe next week), but the “7D” clip can be viewed at: The Marvels Youtube Channel (press the HD button!)

The 7D clip was shot on a Sandisk Extreme CF (60mb/s card), using a Nikon 35mm 1.4 E-series lens (with Canon convertor). Terrific noise-free images (mainly) because of HMI lighting (4 x Arri HMI kit & softbox).
Original footage 1080p/25fps, 1/50s shutter, cut w. FCP on iMac, shaded/graded using FCP three-way color and Joe’s filters.  No Magic Bullets used here…

Hope to post the Ex1 musicvideo before the end of next week.

    What did you end up doing with ISO and HTP on this shoot? Did you turn HTP off?

    Hi David.

    Yes indeed, switched HTP off and ISO 200 for all shots. I don’t want to take any risks again with HTP – i’ll wait ’til Canon comes up with a fix. Meanwhile i stick with the round-hundreds ASAs for max. dynamic range.

    Thanks for writing,

    Martin Beek.

    It looks great. Whole ISOs? What about the 160/320/640 tests? I usually am at 100, 200, 400 for photos, but was going the 160 route for video.
