I can't believe he shoots without lens shading.

Re: Phil Bloom's trip to France w/C300

I should have first said that the piece looks great, and I'm looking forward to downloading the large version.

As far as shading, it doesn't matter if the light is bright, but where it's coming from. In some of those landscape shots, adding a flag would easily show an increase in contrast. If the point is to shoot beautiful landscapes, it's not much added effort compared to standing out in a cold bog for hours at a time.

Appreciate Phil's effort, great place, great job..
What was the point to shoot mostly wide shots with a large sensor camera, not having a face, faces in this camera test?

Mont St Michel is in Normandy in Northern France. The location & hence climate is much nearer to that of the UK than that of the South Of France.

Re: Phil Bloom's trip to France w/C300

To my mind, Phil has captured perfectly the ethereal atmosphere of this part of Normandie, with the presence of Mont St. Michel rising from the saltmarshes like some latter-day Camelot.
I don't really care which camera he shot this video with, the images were just sublime...

Wait until he posts his comparisons with the other cameras he took on the shoot! He knows what he's doing.
Anyway I for one love a great big wide shot no matter how unfashionable it is amongst the 5D Vimeo brigade!

"We all like a nice nipple and there's one right here on the handle." (!)

Try getting away with that on a North American review...

Nice overview of the camera. I enjoyed his take on it.

Re: Phil Bloom's trip to France w/C300

Here are the last 4 cameras in JPEG (I downloaded the file from vimeo). In my opinion the C300 has the best rez, followed by GH2 and then the F3. FS100 has the least rez out of these four cameras...

I also did a quick grade on the JPEGs. Just added contrast and some quick curves. F3 would benefit with some more definition in the midtones...
