Canon 7x17 Cine Lens Test

Written by: Timothy Myers on Monday, October 06, 2014

Some snippets from a recent shoot with a Canon CN7x17 (17-120mm) lens w/ Schneider circular pol on a Sony F5 shooting 2K/REC709/STD5. 

 

Interview's were filmed back-lit against some harsh beach glare and filled with a Lupolux 650W Fresnel.

 

 

Nine's Wide World of Sports employed the Sony F5 with AXS-R5 raw recorder and Canon CN7x17 lens for a series of Ironman profiles on Australia's Gold Coast broadcast ahead of the summer Ironman series. Here is the Matt Poole interview as well as Ky Hurst & Kendrick Louis segments that went to air.

 

Notice how much picture information is lost through the compressed broadcast signal:
