As we continue our ride with Canon Ambassadors Clive Booth, Christian Anderl & Ingo Leitner after last week’s episode, our discussion turns to the different workflows involved when you are a shooter that offers both photo and video services at the same time. What kind of mindset do you have to be in to provide professional results on two fronts simultaneously? And what about the possibilities that 8K video has to offer?

Ingo Leitner has formed a successful wedding business with his wife Carmen, offering their very own blend of the photo and video fusion through the implementation of quite an intense workflow.

Clive Booth is a renowned director and photographer who has made a great career in the fashion world, recently having shot a spot for the new Aston Martin line by Hackett with the new Canon C700. You can watch him talk about the process behind it all in our last episode of On The Go.

Christian Anderl is a wedding photographer and filmmaker who has embraced the latest Canon 5d Mark IV as the ideal tool for his daily work, despite the camera’s shortcomings in the video department such as the sensor crop when shooting 4K.

Considering the advent of 8K video which allows for very high quality frame pulls from video footage… Are we about to witness a revolution for those doing fusion work like that of Christian, Ingo and Clive?

Make sure to stay tuned for the upcoming final part of our ride with this group of Canon Ambassadors.

This is becoming more like the mobile phone industry…..more resolution and nothing else.

Then you haven’t seen Mark Toia’s work.

I haven’t and I have no interest to. This industry is becoming unnecessarily obsessed with more megapixels with people clamoring for more “fix/manipulate-it-in-post” features.

How much resolution is enough for one’s eyes to absorb visually ?

After you see work from people like Mark Toia you will understand why there is a rush to higher K’s. 12K is on the way.

The first time I saw a 4K was at Fry’s Electronics. It was set in a place where it would be the first thing people saw when they walked in. It was down the aisle about 150 feet away. They placed a 1080p tv next to it. As soon as I saw it when I walked in the door, about 150 feet away, I could see a difference. As I walked toward the 2 tvs I could see a difference. And when I got about 5 feet away from them and stopped walking I could see a difference.

90 degree shutterangle usually is a good compromise.

8K gives you better MTF at all frequencies, so you get a better representation of contrast which is visible even after downsampling. 8K means you get smoother more natural representation of details because you’re much more likely to be oversampling that detail. Because many people will be downsampling the 8K to 2K or 4K you’ll also get less noise in high ISO. 8K is also good for post cropping/stabilisation and future proofing once in a lifetime events.

We have 8k camera but we don’t have “human” Workstation to do cutting, color grading or post-production of 8k footage. And we will not have for the next 5-6 year.
