The Canon EOS 1DC, an HDSLR that shoots 4K. Impressive, yet hard to handle in terms of data workflow. But there’s also the super35 crop-mode, that only picks the 35mm portion of its full-frame sensor. We found this mode delivers a very fine, sharp and clean image, a lot nicer than on any other HDSLR before. Johnnie Behiri took the 1DC out for a spin and shot a short clip to show you a little super35 ALL-I (codec) footage. Make sure you download and see the source clip (IT’S PRORES) on vimeo: LINK Johnnie Behiri says:Please regard the footage as “work in progress”. (I will try and upload more test footage in different frame rates and camera modes in the near future). The very short camera test was intended to check how good the S35 All-I mode is “out of the box” ready for delivery. No CC or sharpness applied in post.Read more
By: Sebastian Wöber One of the most intriguing booths I’ve seen at NAB so far was the Garcia brother’s corner. They’ve become famous in hdslr world with a company they call “JAG35” and while they’ve started out with affordable and not so good quality products, they’ve managed to make affordable and amazingly awesome products by now. I’ve talked to Misa a lot and I’ve tried all their new stuff. Their philosophy: They constantly improve their products based on user feedback and get out new versions very quickly to serve great quality and usability at an affordable price. I’ve never seen an LCS (lens control system) that’s so affordable and I’ve never guessed I’d ever see one that works so well at this price. You get the whole thing (complete version with two motors) for $900, it’s crazy. The one downside I can see, or should I say “hear” is the noise the motors produce. You’ll be able to catch it in the video (keep in mind: some parts of the video have closeup shots that have no sound in them, please forgive the crappy editing on that part). It’s a noise that has a rather small frequency throw, so it will probably be easy to cancel it out in post, but this will still be a downer for some people. Never the less, I’m already sold and I’m sure they’ll produce an encased version of the product in the future to kill the noise further. Get their stuff on the Jag35 website.Read more
