first video attempt - horrible colors

Recommended Posts

My first attempt at video. The colors look yuck.. really dissappointed. It doesn't look life-like at all. What am I doing wrong? This was shot on a 5d3 with ISO 1000, aperture 6.3, and shutter 1/100. The resolution is 1280x720 at 50fps. The video looks fine with viewing in camera, but looks awful when viewing via media player on PC or youtube. It is in .MOV format.

attempt 2 looks a bit better

looks fine to me,

maybe move the camera down a bit so its not getting the brighter light from above? and/or darken the background?

my last video was recorded this way for that reason - http://www.qldaf.com/forums/photography-video-lounge-23/6x2-native-rainbowfish-video-91020/

could also be as simple as the colour settings on your monitor

Thanks for the suggestion rainbowrunner. I think its a codec issue on my pc, as the video looks better on my tablet (though theres a lot of room for improvement. Agree that it looks overexposed). On the pc the colors look really fake and garish. My monitor is wide gamut and I trust its color accuracy for photo editing so that shouldnt be the issue. Will play with codecs to see if it helps.

Edit: here may be an explanation for my problem. This may be useful to other Canon DSLR users:

not sure what to do about it though.. will need more research.
