News: 7D, 5D, 60D, and XH-A1 can you tell?

7D, 5D, 60D, and XH-A1 can you tell?

Music video shot with a Canon XH A1, 7D, 5D, and 60D. Yes, four different cameras. We illuminated the set with shiny boards only. 

Heavy color correction but quality is pretty much the same on all cameras. 

(Watch in 1080p)

Great clip, very well done.

Out of interest, what format did you shoot on the XHA1 and the 60D.

I have both these cameras and am struggling to find the best setting when using these two cameras together for live music concerts.

What I've found is that the 60D looks best in 720p @ 50fps as 1080p @ 25fps looks too choppy.

The Canon XHA1 looks best at 1080i @ 25fps

When I edit in FCP, and I set the sequence up for the DSL camera, I will loose quality on the XHA1 and vise versa.

I've tried converting all the 60D footage to 1080 at 25fps before editing, however as expected I loose a lot of motion clarity and the footage does start to look slightly pixilated compared to the raw footage.

Final output is for DVD and YouTube if that makes any difference.

Also, I edit in FCP, and I've tried capturing in both HDV and ProRes 422 but still get the same issues.

You seem to have this all sorted out, any advise?

Steve
