And more nasty weather rolling through again...

I've edited in Adobe Premiere Elements. I tried out daVinci Resolve but it's so complex, I didn't manage to do anything in it. In the future I want to use a different Picture Style to have more latitude for color grading, I was hitting the wall quite fast with this one.

I'm having a close eye on the developments. I've watched a 2,5k movie recorded in RAW with a anamorphic lens, it was quite impressive. But currently I don't see how I could adapt to the storing space problems (you basically need at least one 64 GB 1000x CF card, e.g. Lexar charges 350 € for each card) or the editing. As far as I understood you can currently only import in After Effects and then transfer to a codec/container that your tool can use.
To be honest I would be more interested in a reduced format like 10bit instead of 14 which would reduce the data load massively. For what I need, the h.264 would actually be enough but it is quite impressive to see the difference, especially in that one clip where they compare it at night (massive reduction in noise).

We had tornadoes in the area yesterday. Here's a pic of one coming right at me. There was no way out thanks to all the flooding so I ended up riding this one out in a somewhat sheltered area. It was not much fun at all.

Would it be worth getting a t2i for the raw video over the d7000 (which has more features for photos) I'd just like to get into video more but I want something that will be good at photos and video. I've seen video from both and the t2i/t3i raw video looks better to me. Any input?

I will tell in words! Whenever i take the snap, my hands shake always right at the time of pressing the button. bounce2.gif

Does the t2i do RAW Video? It has only SD Cards which are quite slow compared to CF. I don't think it will be able to record RAW in 1080p24, in the 5DIII you need around 80mb/s I think, the SD card slot in a t2i probably only makes around 35mb/s. As I read last time, only 5DII and III will be able to record the 1080p24 in RAW due to the limiting hardware.

Did you consider a Panasonic GH2? I heard it's one of the best hybrids. I'm no fan of Canon APS-C, they are so crazy far behind in sensor tech. They basically stopped to get any better after the t2i / 550D. If I would have started now and not already had all the glass, I'd have gotten a Nikon D600 instead of the 5DIII.

I believe there is a hack for the t2i. Yeah I'm only concerned if the IQ of photos are any good on the GH2. I still need it to make me money wink.gif but I've been working in after effects and have to do some video for my senior thesis next semester. Also it'd be just plain cool to have for home videos and skate videos.

Does the GH2 have CF card slot(s) ? I loved my d7000 but they don't offer any hacks for it and the video on my d7000 was ok, not great though.

Cool reflection NOBD
post #3970 of 4210
That's what I thought smile.gif.
post #3971 of 4210
It is that, but I keep wanting to crop it a little tighter on the right, to make it less obvious what's causing it. Maybe just to the left of the stem...
post #3972 of 4210
Feel free to make a crop to show.
post #3973 of 4210
Probably not better, but I like how it takes a second more to figure out what's causing the reflection...

and when you have figured it out, I feel that too much of the actual glass is just distracting from what's most interesting in the shot - the shadow.

What do you think?
post #3974 of 4210
That makes perfect sense, Kaplan. What I don't like now is the shape of the crop; too square. So, I'd crop some from the top and the bottom:

Deal?
