Train it! Fitness Series

Finally fitness related content for my blog as I figure it’s about time I shared some of the information I’ve learnt over years of weight-loss.

The following is a first person, kettlebell’s eye view, of training. This is just for a bit of fun. All created using a GoProHDHero2

Awaking Prophecy

Recently I had the chance to film the first video for Melbourne based Death Metal act ‘The Ophidian Ascension’. Making the most of Magic Lantern’s new raw capability, I decided to use it for the shooting and shot the whole production in a combination of 24fps and 60fps. All footage was captured on a 128gb KomputerBay memory card. Two versions are available below, YouTube and Vimeo. I recommend the Vimeo one if you want the true clarity and colour I selected as YouTube seems to mute some of the tones.

Constructing with Arin……

Recently I got together with a great musician and friend of mine Arin (The Construct) and decided to play around with ML raw and my recently acquired KomputerBay 128gb 1050x card. Here’s what came of it:

Gear Used:
Canon 5D mkIII
Zeiss T*Planar 50mm f1.4
Zeiss Jena Flektagon 35mm f2.4 MC
Schneider filters
Jag35 rails
Manfrotto tripod
SmallHD DP4 EVF

RAW, huh, Good God YES!

So I finally bit the bullet and bought a 5D Mk3 and a couple of fast (probably not fast enough) CF cards (1000x is pretty much a yes). The aim is to start playing with the raw video features implemented by Magic Lantern (www.magiclantern.fm). If your not sure on the process go check out the forums and you will find a plethora of help and instructions on installing a recent build for your camera.

With this hack installed I filmed a couple of shots and put them together to have a day one, out of the box test. It took me about 20minutes to update/retrograde Firmware to 1.1.3 and then write the ML boot to the disk with MacBoot.

Once up and running….. my god is it glorious. I will be posting vids with the h.264 recording mode and some post work as it’s still the most usable and feasible on the job option.  None the less time to experiment. The below features two shots that are video, but just static to show detail (more for me than you guys :P), following that are two graded motion scenes. The first graded in my standard manner of noise reduction, add film grain, work with Magic bullet looks. The second graded shot is using LUT replacement then Colorista II to get a little more complicated.

I will be posting more as I test more. Can’t wait to film a short with this. The below test was handheld (sorry for the shakes, I should have used a tripod or something), shot with a Zeiss 50mm T*Planar at 1.4, ISO100… yes thats right because it’s RAW you can use the photo intervals rather than the digital ones as stills don’t develop noise the same way as compressed motion graphic.

Keep checking back for further tests and shoots using the RAW hack.
