Whether working in film, video or digital media you must have a process for preparation, acquisition and processing of your imagery. Having 'workflow protocols' are the steps you take to make sure you're using the right camera for the job, have all the proper settings selected on your camera prior to shooting and that there's a clear record of what images, video or digital files came from where prior to getting them into an editing bay.
It's been a while since I've put anything up so here's a vid from Still Motion with some good intermediate tips on how to make adjustments for shooting with a DSLR outside in bright sun. Now, the lessons talked about also apply to dedicated video cameras as well concerning apeture, shutterspeed and Neutral Density Filters as well.
Hello, I'm rather new to videography as a business and am currently saving up from some gear via photography and renting video equipment.. I just recently found a group of film makers who use only dslr as video cameras which is a nice option because it's multi use and you get the nice DoF..
So here is my question, I mainly do wedding and party videography and was wondering if the traditional 3ccd prosumer is the best option or would a dslr rig be any good for weddings?
Sony shipped the new NEX-VG10 to the Videomaker headquarters for an exclusive 48 hour hands on review. At first glance it looks more like a camera you would find in the hands of a pro rather than a consumer but at a closer look the NEX-VG10 is extremely simple with very few buttons and options.
There was a time when a person could buy a piece of technology and expect it to be at the relative top of technological advancements for almost a year, but alas, those days are far behind us. In light of these facts, we'll take a close look at what is coming around the corner in the world of camcorder technology.
Myself and a number of friends just completed a short film called 'The Rat King', and I was curious if a few of you would not mind casting votes for us at the site it is currently posted at. It is in competition to win funding for a feature-length adaptation, but requires votes in order to make the finals. We worked really hard on the film, and would greatly appreciate any support that anyone can lend us!
If you do not mind, please take a moment to sign up on the web site (no worries it is free), and give it five stars (votes will not count without all five stars).
The folks at Zacuto have finally put up this last episode and I strongly believe those of you trying to decide between a traditional video camera and a DSLR will be able to make up your minds after watching this.
I ran across these two vids interviewing Vincent Laforet the 'Father' of DSLR filmmaking. It was his short film "Reverie" made with the Canon 5D Mk II the Photographer turned the Digital Film industry on its collective head. Now barely two years later, he is now a premiere DP and expert in DSLR filmmaking. In this interview with the Phoenix Group, Laforet gives his views on types of lenses to use with your Canon DSLR rigs and tips on the best ways to shoot your images to make life easier in post.
