I was very curious about the new All-I codec on the 5Dmk3, at a bit rate of about 80~90mpbs, it should produce much better quality video then the 5D2 and it does! Grading for a B/W look on neutral background could be problematic with the 5D2 (and a nightmare with any other DSLR), lack of color depths and dynamic range can lead to nasty looking tonal separations. I really wasn’t sure if it would be worth the upgrade from the 5D2. Between the crazy fast and accurate auto focus during still shoots (I shot my first fashion editorial with the 5D3 a few days ago and could not find a single miss-focused image) and the very gradable video this camera produces, I would say it was totally worth it. We were just fooling around here and had a great time shooting and filming, hope you enjoy! To find out about the idea behind this project, check out the INSPIRED BY photo series!

I had a few lenses laying around but ended up shooting with the 5D3 and kit lens only.
