New TV Ad shot on 5D
Logan McMillan Logan McMillan is offline June 19th, 2009, 08:57 AM

Hey guys,

Just shot an ad for TV here in NZ yesterday. Was my first time with the 5D.

Wrote the ad in the morning, shot it at lunch, then had it all done and out of post by 4pm.

The camera is great to work with! Love the pictures.

Please leave a comment :)

Cheers!

Logan

That was great - cool that you completed all in a day. What lens did you use?

Yeah Art - was about 6 hours from concept through to completion.

Ben (the guy with the beard) did the sound and I shot and did the video post.

I only have the kit 24-105mm f4.0 lens at the moment. Shot mostly on the 105 end.

I really wanted as shallow a depth of field as possible so I had it opened up and the shutter speed at 160 - which wasn't as bad as I was thinking it may be.

Am really hanging out to get a fast 50mm.

Beautifully done. Your talent are great, too.
What is the shoulder rig you were using? Did you actually use that for the shoot, or were you on sticks?

Thanks man.

Shot the whole thing on the shoulder rig. It's just something I built quickly out of old parts lying around. Works great for the 5D - sits it across closer to my eyeline.

I liked your video

What did you do to prepare it for upload to you tube?

I've been trying to figure out the best workflow for taking 5DII videos which look awesome on my comuter, and put them on youtube and have them look decent.

Whatever your work flow is, it did a good job.

Hey Tim, I am another first time poster on this forum.

Hello all. I would just like to say that this is a great well run and informative forum. I have been lurking for a couple of months, and have been impressed with the level of tech savvy posted here. My field is radio, but I am also a recovering audiophile. Happy to be onboard...

Tim, I have limited all of my Youtube uploads to <350kps (typically 345kps) so that most viewers will have a smooth, stutter free viewing experience. Also, under 350kps, the Youtube engine does not recompress your video either, giving you control over the final look of your clip. I reduce the frame rate to 15fps and up the saturation and contrast a little.

Yes there was a way of creating high quality YT clips, but YT has now stopped allowing this hack (I could explain it - pm me). Example prior to the YT clampdown;

YouTube HD Upload Trick - 960x540@6000kbit_s
YouTube - YouTube HD Upload Trick - 960x540@6000kbit_s

This clip (and many others) used to look sensational, until YT nobbled it.

I recommend you give Youtube a wide berth, and upload to VIMEO instead.
Vimeo, Video Sharing For You
Register @ Vimeo, and in many cases, you will be able to download the original file goodness. If someone can provide some tips for the best way to prep a file for VIMEO, could they please start a new thread ?

It's a lens that is sold in a bundle or kit with the camera body. Sometimes the kit lens cannot be purchased separately. The 24-105mm F4 IS USM is a very good choice & the kit is cheaper than buying the camera & lens separately.

My settings for Youtube are as follows:

Quicktime H.264
Limit Video Data Rate: 6000 kbs (so 1min comes out at about 40 - 60MB)
Framerate: 30fps
Keyframes every 24 frames
Size: 720 x 405

I am not too fussed with HD in Youtube - just pretty happy with a good SD version.

I have been using this setting a lot lately and it seems to come out well.

Every video uploaded to YouTube at 1280x720 will have an HD version, wich surprisingly looks far better than Vimeo.

I made comparisions and the HD YouTube looks very close to the original H.264 uploaded. With Vimeo I have the feeling it's looking worse day to day. :(

Youtube has better HD.....from what I have seen. Better codec and slightly higher bit rate I believe.
