DACE: Canon 5D2 and Panasonic GH1, Studio Beauty clips

Dace from Mike Kobal on Vimeo.

A very short video clip with Dace during my beauty shoot. Mixed footage from

the Canon 5D2 and Lumix GH1. 70 200mm, 75 150mm Nikon (look for it on ebay), 14 140mm. One medium softbox. First time editing with Premiere Pro CS5. Love it, no trans coding, mixing HVCHD and H.264 straight out the cameras into the time line. A little color adjustment, that’s it! No more converting before editing. Love it.

  1. Hi, Mike.
    Nice video, as usual.
    i’m a fan of this blog.
    That’s very interesting, mixing different footage, with no transcoding.
    How do you deal with different frame rates?

  2. Sexy video :)
    Is the 75-150mm really that good? I heard some issues about a loose focus ring or something. Oh and by the way whats the best aperture? (I’m considering to buy it.. but only if it really is good at apertures between 3.5-5.6)
    And yeah adobe premiere pro cs5 really is good.
    Guess BBC figured that out as well: http://www.adobe.com/aboutadobe/pressroom/pressreleases/201009/090910BBCAdoptsPremiereProCS5.html

  3. thanks Stefan, yes, teh 76-150mm is great wide open, i put a wide rubber band on the zoom/focusing ring, it is very loose.

  4. thanks Pedro, in this case I selected the higher frame rate, will have to wait and see if mixing footage will cause problems, but none so far

  7. in this particular shoot, it would be hard to tell the difference

  8. depends what you are looking for. speed, higher frame rate, more dof, the gh1 wins (at 720p) you can get nice slomo. but for everything else, esp low light, shallow depth of field, better codec, the 5d wins
