Re: By the light of the moon

The lens was a Canon EF 300 mm L 2.8II and the second shot used a 2 x extender on it.

Re: By the light of the moon

Hi Barry,

I finally was able to view your moonlight footage at a library yesterday and I must say I'm very impressed as was my wife. I see great potential in this camera for wildlife filmmaking especially in low light situations. It will open up a whole new world for me in filming by the natural light of the moon. I know night vision lenses have been used, however, this looks better. I'm looking forward in seeing this camera at dealers in Canada. Thanks for sharing.

C300 MoonLit clips denoised

At the suggestion of several people on Vimeo, I ran a few moonlit clips through a de-noiser (Neat Video). I'd consider these a moderately aggressive denoise pass...I've left a little noise and then sharpened it slightly.

Consider me floored. The ISO 20k clip in the middle is a little smeary...but honestly. I think it's impressive what the C300 maintains in terms of Detail and DR at 10-20k iso. Download the original file to bypass Vimeo's own denoising.

Re: By the light of the moon

That's significant.

Yeah, the NR on that pass was a bit heavy-handed. Also, I'm sure it would look more consistent with more consistent focus. The NR did well when in or out of focus, but had difficulty at the transition. Had this been a serious, "okay everybody, we need to nail focus" many-takes shot with slightly less aggressive noise reduction, the audience would be lost in the scene without ever noticing any noise or artifacts. And that's the whole goal.

I remain impressed!
