Marvels Cine shooters, please help keeping my IMDb page!

Dear Marvels Cine Profile users. A little cry for help 😉
Your assistance is much appreciated..!

My IMDb page is in danger of being deleted because it has only been updated with one short (festival) credit ever since 2004. The fact that i’m working on two feature films to be released in 2013 and 2015 are not taken in consideration. You can help me keeping my IMDb page by adding my name MARTIN BEEK to the credits of your IMDb-listed movie (short, doc, feature), if you’ve used our free Marvels Cine profile/Canon DSLR in any way on that production. Preferably under the crew role of “camera and electrical department->Color Consultant or Digital Image Technician or some other IMDb preset that has to do with camera, color or digital processing. Credited or uncredited does not matter, neither does the year of release.

Many many thanks and kind regards,

Martin Beek – Marvels Film

Marvels Cine Picture Style 3.4 test movie

UPDATE: please follow the link “marvels cine for hdslr” at the top of this blog for more information and updated profile.

Jorgen Escher has published some new information about the Marvels 3.3 and 3.4 picture styles we will be using on an indie feature length production this year. He explains the differences between 3.3 and 3.4 and my (our) motivations to make changes to the default 3.3 style.

Jorg (for short) has also published a short test movie on his blog and on Youtube.

You can find Jorg here:  http://colorbyjorg.wordpress.com.  Jorg is an optical reserach engineer with the Fraunhofer institut, Darmstadt Germany and knows a lot about colorimetrics.

Follow that guy! @colorbyjorg

Canon 5D/7D Picture Style with Cine-gamma (S) Curve – free download

UPDATE: please check out our new style and download page HERE

Stay up to date by “Liking” http://www.facebook.com/marvelsfilm




UPDATE November 26th 2010: a new profile has been launched in addition to this one, check out: Marvels Cine 2.1 Panalog profile

We have worked on a Cine gamma picture style for the Canon 7D camera for the last few days, that can be compared with our PP settings for our Sony EX-1.
I think we might have a little premiere here – to our knowledge this is the first release of a Picture Style on the web for the 7D..!
Thanks to my collegue Bart Keimen (Marvels Film) for his measurements, calculations and general maths-mumbojumbo i couldn’t quite follow in the first place… 😉

The Canon 7D standard picture, also with Contrast dialed down, was too punchy for our taste as well as too saturated. With this new picture profile you can achieve a more refined “Cine” look.

This Picture Style, that can be downloaded to your camera with the EOS Utility, introduces a S-gammacurve that lifts the black levels is shadows and “low-mids” and compresses the highlights, resulting in an over-all increased latitude – and a decrease in contrast. This can be compared with a Sony Hyper Cine Gamma profile. Some viewers will translate the picture as “flat”, but it will give you much more control in post. Also, this profile is ideal for use with these particular 7D cameras that have problems with the Highlight Priority setting; the dynamic range of this profile has already been “moved” towards both highlights and blacks.

In isolation, I find that the cine gamma look is a bit more “true to life”; it handles overexposure more gracefully, and IMHO looks a little bit more like the way film handles highlights.

Since you still have control over the Picture Style settings, you can adjust the strength of the S-Curve by changing the Contrast value. Move it down to exaggerate the S-curve and move it up to flatten the S-Curve (more linear).

We have compiled a Picture Style for download. The sharpness, tint, saturation and contrast settings can still been altered.
You can download the Picture Style to the camera’s “User Def. 1” memory by using the Eos Utility as follows.

  • Download the following Picture Style file to your local harddisk (one file in ZIP archive): http://www.martinbeek.net/canon7d/Marvels_Cine_Gamma_7D.zip (updated oct 23 2009)
  • Unpack the zip archive
  • Connect the camera through USB and switch it on in LiveView
  • Start the program and select “Camera settings/Remote shooting”
  • In the middle of the control screen, click “Register User Defined style”
  • Select User Def. 1, 2 or 3 at the top of the new page and click the button with the Open File icon
  • Select the Marvels_Cine_V1.2_rel.pf2 file
  • Click on OK
  • The Picture Style is now downloaded to your camera. First close the Eos Utility before you disconnect the camera
  • Enter film mode and press the Picture Style selection button (the one under “Menu”) at the back of the camera
  • Use the thumbweel on top of the camera to scroll through the styles; you will see “Marvels Cine 1.2  as new selectable style
  • Happy shooting!

Cheers!

Martin Beek.
