Shooting long reality with a 5d mark ii and 5d mark iii simultaneously. Problems??
5 months ago

Hello,

I have a shoot next weekend that will be some long verite scenes and the producers have chosen (due to a bare bones budget) to make due with the cameras we have; those being a mark ii and a mark iii which will be cross covering.

I'm trying to help anticipate problems with this setup and I was hoping for some input from others who have had to work this way or something similar.

Will issues arise from:

- camera and picture styles matching

- different compression methods

- sound sync due to fat32 limitations (slating is impossible, so stuck with manual sync/pluraleyes?)

- Record time limitations? Do people have experience or links to recommended roll times before bad things start to happen with either camera? I can't find authoritative sources

Thank you for any ideas!
