UPDATE: 10/27 – unfortunately, the Navy has asked Shane to take down the video and so I've removed it too. The contest has ended early due to this request.
Shane Hurlbut has a new video posted on his website with a little contest going on behind it, you've got to discover which parts of the video were done with the Canon EOS 5D Mark II and which were done with a Sony 950 and an Arri 235 (yes, a film camera!). I've seen plenty of comments/blogs/forums where someone is saying it is difficult to combine the different formats or the Canon EOS 5D Mark II isn't made to do big screen movies etc. Well folks, Shane is just doing it. You should see the excitement he showed at the Collision Conference 2 months ago during his keynote presentation (actually, I think we might be able to share some of that – keep watching this space). He is just so excited about the new options he and his team have to produce beautiful moving images. Read more about Shane and what his team are doing over on Shane's blog!
From Shane's site:
“Remember reading Whereâ€™s Waldo when you were a kid? We thought it might be fun to play a similar game to test your vision with the following video!
In this Mio footage from our current Navy SEAL film project, we used two HD cameras the Canon 5D Mark II and the Sony 950. We also shot some of it with the Arri 235. Watch closely and see if you can tell the difference between film and the two HD cameras. Then, try to notice the subtle changes of the 10 Bit HD with the Sony 950 and 8 Bit color space with the Canon 5D!”
Sorry, the Navy has asked that the video be taken down
