FilmConvert’s Canon R5C Camera Pack Available to Download

FilmConvert has dropped another camera pack for content creators, which will enable them to add a cinematic grain and color matching using the Canon R5C Mirrorless Camera. The camera pack can be used in both FilmConvert Nitrate and CineMatch plugins.

Designed as a hybrid camera that can shoot in both mirrorless still photography and full-frame 8K video modes, the Canon EOS R5C shoots in three different 12-bit Raw internal recording formats, at 8K and 5.7K at up to 60 fps.

It can also capture 4K at 120 fps and there’s no limit to recording time save the size of the recording medium it’s writing the files to.

FilmConvert Nitrate is able to analyze the digital emulsion of the 24mp DIGIC X image sensor and apply a gain profile that is based on 6K scans of actually 35mm motion picture film.

The result is a very realistic and cinematic film look that can be applied to the overall image.

Furthermore, FilmConvert CineMatch is designed for filmmakers working on multi-camera projects who have to deal with the painstaking task of matching cameras in post.

The software uses the FilmConvert camera packs to analyze the video metadata and image in order to align the images to match, before re-applying the target camera’s color science. The result is a consistent image from the camera to camera.

The software also contains custom Refinement tools to help correct any issues that occurred while shooting, such as exposure or white balance changes, or even mismatched lenses.

There are also built-in False Color views to identify areas for adjustment, and an HSL selector to modify individual colors to polish the color match with precision.

The Canon R5C and other camera packs are available for free for FilmConert Users, who can download them from the FilmConvert Camera Packs page.

Meanwhile, CineMatch users will have to download the latest version of the software from the Downloads page and install the update. A free trial is also available for both software packages.
