Here we are with week 21 in this week of catching up! This week was one that I had to decide exactly what I wanted to do. There were so many options, but when working within the constraints of the adapted anamorphic lens, some ideas were simply out of the question.
I decided that the shelf of geekdom in my living room was a great place to get a good shot. So let's go ahead and take a look at this week's shot.
This shot was done with the Sony a6300 again, shot in 4K at 24p, 8000 ISO, 1/50 shutter, f11.0 with a +1 macro lens attachment. I shot this week on my Canon 75-300 lens again as well.
So let's start off with the negative on this week. My biggest problem this week was the rolling shutter. For whatever reason, it was really noticeable to me. For those that don't know what the rolling shutter does to the image, it's also described as a jello effect.
So for this week, one thing that created a speed bump in getting this week's video done was the necessity to use rolling shutter repair on the footage run at a pretty high level. This not only meant extra rendering, but it also seems to slow down the export of the final video as well.
But once the rolling shutter repair had been done the footage looked much nicer and had a better handheld look to it than before. Handheld footage as well all know can look great or awful, but I ended up pretty happy with the handheld for this shot in the end.
My favorite thing about this shot is all the color. I love how nicely all the color ended up popping in the shot once a grade was applied. I did notice that the noise was a little bit bad because I shot at high ISO and put on a pretty harsh grade, but it still wasn't unusable noise.
I ended up just de-sharpening the footage a bit and bringing down the harshness of the grade just a bit and ended up with a nice looking shot with much more of a grain like noise.
Much like the post for week 20, this is another shorter post without that much to say so I'll end it here. If you are participating in your own 52 week photography or cinematography challenge, please share your image for week 21 in the comments below!
