Canon 5D and HMI
Posted 29 October 2010 - 05:47 PM
I will start a shooting next month for an inde feature film production.
Lights have to be nice, technically ok and quick install. For some interiors the best choice is 5600K jokerbugs bus as I will shooting with a 5D I though maybe is not a good idea because of the rolling shooter.
Do somebody shoot with this configuration? Have I to take some precautions for shooting?

For what it's worth..I'm shooting with a 7D and home build 'HMIs' with magnetic ballests. As long as I keep the shutter to 1/50 or 1/30 ( I know ....blur... ) I don't have a noticeable issue. It may have something to do with the bulbs I use in them, they might have a slower decay time then normal. And yes, I have measured for UV....
A 5D might scan different, so if you want to check it, shoot a white piece of paper with the HMI on, try some different settings then take that into an editor and look for any banding.

Industrial HID fixtures with integrated ballasts or something else? Gelling out the excess green?
