It was a relatively low-key weekend here. Just hanging with my Shannie baby this morning as she’s in sew mode working on some projects of hers with her rebuilt vintage machine. I snapped this on my 1D and as you can see it handles color amazingly right out of the box.
I got it mounted on the RedRock shoulder mount rig and the test footage looks great. I shot Judo running around the condo in 50p and Time Re-Mapped it to 24p to give it that smooth slo-mo effect and it looked awesome. I didn’t think Judo eating in slow-mo was cool enough to actually post, but for a test it worked out just fine. lol…
I need to get the extra height rails to be able to attach the matte box and follow focus before I can actually start shooting some scenes with it, but I should have those here soon.
For the most part I spent yesterday just getting up to speed with the interface. It shares a few similarities with the 5D but for the most part a lot of the buttons handle things in different ways so it took a bit to get used to. I am pretty much up to speed on it now.
