The Canon 5D

Posted by on Apr 4, 2011 in Philip Berman

Larchmont Films has just finished its first shoot for a client using a Canon 5D. The picture quality is truly amazing, and one of the great benefits is that you can create a really shallow depth of field, so the pictures have quite a ‘filmic’ look. In terms of workflow as I work with the mac’s Final Cut Pro I decided to convert all the footage from the H.264 codec to Pro Res 422 before editing. This can make the editing process a lot smoother so you do not need to render a clip every time you move it on the timeline.
