About 2 days after the manual exposure update, director Rik Cordero bought the 5DMKII and the day after he called me to DP a music video for him in Times Square for Slaughterhouse. I had been preparing for the new DLSR cameras and I purchased an Indie-Slider to test. This was the first video that I'd shot with the 5DMKII and the indie-slider. They both performed very well.
The hotel stuff was pretty standard, iso300-500 with Dedo, Source4s, Kinos, etc. The outside roofdeck exteriors however blew us all away when we turned the iso to 5000 and shot with almost completely available lighting. For those scenes we lit the two adjacent buildings with 2x source4s and then keyed the artist with a 4x4 kino through two layers of diffusion about 10' back. Amazing.
At this point we were using the Novatek Nikon adapter and I used a NIkon 50mm f1.8, Nikon 100mm f2.8, and a Nikon 28-70mm f2.8 zoom.
This months issue of SPIN Magazine (September2009) features and article on the director and has a photo of us using the 5DMKII and indie slider.
