C100 AVCHD vs ProRes NinJa 2

This is some airport footage I shot with a C100 and a Ninja II at ProRes HQ (220MB) the material is split screen and one side is ProRes the other is native 24mb h.264 AVCHD. Can you tell what is what?

Camera: Canon Super 35mm C100

Lenses: Canon 70-200 F2.8 IS USM, Canon 24-105 F4 IS USM, Canon 14mm F2.8, Rokinon 35mm F1.4

Dance Of The Oranges – Canon 7D

Well while I was being nostalgic about this old Canon 7D I figured I would also post this film shot the day after Christmas. This was actually the very first thing I shot with this camera. Enjoy the rather dramatic tour of our back yard garden.

 

The Sand Box – Canon 7D

Well days after getting our first DSLR for Cinema work I had to take it down to Laguna Beach and give it a test run. That was  over 4 years ago. We have now moved on from the Canon 7D to proper 35mm cinema cameras and we have never looked back! While the resolution on this film may fall a bit flat compared to what we can shoot today I thought it might be fun as it has some great shots!

 

 

Limo Service

Choosing the right limo service can be something so many people overlook. So many companies and cars to choose from, how do you pick the right one?

 

1. References and reviews

Check out web review sites like Yelp. Hear from former customers can be one of the best ways to sort them out.

3. Fleet

There are so many choices for vehicle types, stretch limos, party buses, stretched SUVs, Mercedes, Rolls Royce etc… The average fleet size is five.

4. Review your options in person & Check Safety

If you’re renting for a major event, like a wedding take the time to see the vehicle you’re renting. Nothing is more deflating than getting picked up in an old limousine, make sure to confirm that the transportation you expect is the transportation you get.  You should also check to make sure the company has a valid certification. Do they have liability insurance? Are their drivers professionally trained?

5. Cost

Price is obviously a factor. After you agree on a price if your not careful your final bill will have lots of extras like; fuel surcharges, administration costs, tolls and gratuity for the driver. Suddenly, your bill is 30 percent higher than you quote. Make sure your price is all-inclusive.

While we can’t endorse any particular company there are some that we have herd might be great, like LA Limousine Service .


C100 Latitude Tests

All of this was shot in WIDE DR not Clog. I know I could have gotten even more latitude with Clog but I wanted to shoot in something that could be handed to a client directly. This camera has ridicules latitude! Good by DSLR. Shoot details: (Most everything was shot...
