Had a not so funny thing happen to me on a shoot this morning. Fortunately it was a pretty low budget green screen single shot thing so whilst the pressure was on I was able to contain the situation. Thank god I ran a record test and popped it into the laptop other wise I may not have seen the problem until much later!
So what happened? The RAW image went all magenta and purple, like BIG time! The LUT look was fine but the RAW was very very out of whack! I fiddled a little but quickly decided to do a camera reset and re-boot! Thank Christ this seemed to fix it! I was running off mains and thought maybe that was the issue so switched to V-locks. It then happened again and I had to do the same thing, which again reset it and it was fine! I quickly re-set all my settings and quickly checked the footage on the laptop and it was all good so off we went. I was able to keep pretty calm and pretty discreet about it all, however I don't think I would have been quite so calm on a bigger job had there been more at stake.
Having read a recent thread this morning prior to this shoot about camera temperature and the fan kicking in on a critical interview I was very aware of the camera's temperature, it was sitting around 47-52 degrees C through most of the day but at this stage we'd only had the camera on for maybe 10-20mins. I'm on firmware 3.0.6. All other settings were standard, ie I hadn't dialled in any Look settings or anything like that.
Weird! A little frightening and also a bit of a mystery!
Anyone else seen anything like this...
