We’ve had the Canon EOS 1D C and have been testing 4k video for about a week – now here’s your chance to get your hands on Canon EOS 1D C 4k video samples here on planet5D! Can your machine cope? If you have trouble (and are using FCPX – please see this “Canon EOS 1D C 4k video to FCPX ingest workflow for Mac” on how my workflow).

These two samples (both of the St. Louis Arch) are shot in Canon Log on the Canon EOS 1D C with a Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II lens – so you should have the most latitude to stretch your coloring chops! You are welcome to download the samples and we’d all love to see how you’d color these samples! Please post a link in the comments when you upload your sample!

But, before I give you the download links, please watch this daily planet5D episode where I show you a couple of other samples and quick tests of magnification and coloring.

Download Links!

I have never shared via wetransfer.com – so I’m not sure if there are any limits on how many people can download… if it gets shut down, I’ll find some other place to host the videos – but lucky for you, the URL will stay the same. The Wetransfer site says the link will be active for 2 weeks

You are free to share these with others, but please please include a link back to this post (use blog.planet5d.com/1DCsamples) so people can see any updates if the links are down etc!
Here are the download links:

Please keep your eye on planet5D in the coming weeks for more Canon EOS 1D C info! I do plan on also sharing more video samples including some examples of the Super35 cropping and high ISO samples.
