I'm writing to ask you few suggestions to get the best out of a Canon 5d MK III.
A friend asked me to shoot a short movie in Afghanistan. We'll spend the majority of the fundings to get tickets, visas and accomodation.
I know that this is a photographic camera but our budget is really tight. Furthermore we have to travel very light and we don't have any other choice...
I've spoken with few DOPs and DITs and in general they told me to go for an external recorder like atomos ninja II or pix240 (too expensive) and to use a kit of low-cons, NDs and an IRcut.
I was also thinking to shoot RAW with Magic Lantern but apparently is not so reliable.
Do you know any other way to get better definition, dynamic range and a less digital look?
Another questions is: Do the low cons effects the definition of the image?
We'll shoot with few old C/Y zeiss primes 28 /2, 50 /1.4 and 85 /1.4 and a canon 24-70 F4
If you have any other suggestion would be really appreciated.
All the best
