  6. "New Marvel Cine Picture Style 3.x for Canon DSLR’s" (well from Jan 19th, but new to me)

    Marvels FIlm Production offers free download for a new custom picture style, that utilizes “the standard setting” rather than the Neutral I have been using.

    It’s less flat than “super-flat”, is less flat than the first Marvels Cine, uses 10 curve nodes, does not touches any colour and is based on the Standard style as a base, instead of the Neutral style.

    Exposure and white balance – special those of the skin – can be safely set using this new style if you judge these settings by eye.
    The new style can made more and less flatter by adjusting the Contrast setting. Even if contrast is set in the middle position (4), it’s still flatter than the usual way of flattening the untouched Neutral style (w. contrast on zero).
    The style is slightly more colourful than other flat styles, because it uses the Standard style as a basis.
    The Standard style setting is used as a basis for this new style, because the s-curve required this in respect to the skin colours – for colorimetric and exposure reasons.”

    I’m pretty excited about this one! Thanks guys!

  15. Was reading the Lens Blog over at NYTIMES.COM and there was a great article focusing on Damon Winters’ photography. Damon Winters is a photographer currently embedded with the First Battalion, 87th Infantry of the 10th Mountain Division in Northern Afghanistan. Not only is he using his 5D to capture  real life moments of the soldiers,  but he recently turned to another tool in his toolkit, his iphone.  I love the quote in the article that says “Few people care what kind of typewriter Hemingway used.” So why does it matter that Damon Winter’s  used the built in camera on his phone to capture these telling images? It matters because Damon Winters isn’t getting caught up on what camera gear he’s supposed to use, but rather choose to pick the best tool  for capturing the moment.

    I think he made a wise decision, what about you?
