Post 5d mark II or 1D mark IV
Hi
I'm looking at buying the best dslr possible for timelapse photograghy. The footage will be edited next to (4k) from the red one so quality is important. The 5d mark II shot raw seems good for this but would anyone see the 1d mark IV as a better option or am I just over spending with the 1d?

Thanks
Owen

what glass do you have?

Rumor has it the IV has a slight edge in the upper iso and it's probably faster. After that, I'd base it on glass on hand and maybe getting 2x 5d bodies vs 1x 1D body.

Thanks for speedy reply milapse. I was just watching your YouTube clips actually. No glass yet as I'm still putting my shopping list together. I have a budget of $10k for my Timelapse setup not including glass, (body,tripod,motorized head) any combos you'd reccomend? I think I'll go 5d
I'll also add a dolly system later on but not in that budget.

Thanks
Owen

A dolly would be like 8% of 10k... ( viewtopic.php?f=24&t=2363&hilit=dynamic+perception )

Sounds like you can shoot the moon. I'd get 2x 5dmkii if I was u.

Thanks for the link. Just added to my shopping list. Benefits of 2 5ds would be shooting side by side for correct exposure in sunsets ect right? and for also having 2 seperate lapses running at same time. I'm just stating the obvious here right?

Thanks
Owen

Having two cams is great for doubling up your focal lengths and angles. For example one running a wide and one tele, then you can cut from one to the other. Once you get the hang of it you'll quickly find that working locations really benefit from two cams just like video production.

I was waiting to be confused are here it is. Do you have a link to this technique? Video of timelapse shot this way?

This is not a technical technique. It's a cinematic technique. Cutting between A cam and B cam to help bring the viewer into a scene. Typically done with a wide 'establishing shot' then tight 'subject shot'. The interpretations of this basic concept are to be seen in any famous film.

It can also be thought of very simply: two cameras get you double the footage of a location! ;)

Alright thanks for your help. I'll get back to the books and I'm sure I'll have many more questions in the near future.
Thanks
Owen
