I currently own a Canon Gl2, and have recently seen some test footage from a T2i which has significantly better than the footage I can get from my Gl2, probably due to the smaller sensor on my Gl2. My question is would it be wise selling my Gl2 and buying a T2i to replace it, and possibly purchase an additional lens for the T2i? I will mainly be using it for Narrative shorts. Thanks!
If you spend much time on Twitter or the blogosphere, you've probably noticed the extreme number of time-lapse videos that are going viral around the web. What's the deal with their sudden popularity? I chalk it up to a number of factors. The first is that modern digital cameras can shoot time-lapse photos without a need for an external control device. Second is the recent popularity of compact camera sliders. Third is the fact that HDR (high dynamic range) photography is easier than ever to accomplish. Finally, the nature of the internet dictates that once a number of these videos goes viral, more and more people will jump on board.
Hi there! I want to know if there is a correct way of white balancing video on dslrs. I have a Canon t2i and I really want to stay away from auto white balance as much as possible. I normally use presets like daylight (on a sunny day where the light is harsh) but what do you use when your indoors and there are a lot of different lights that can mess up your white balance?
If you've been watching for pre-NAB anouncements and rumors as closely as we have, you've surely seen some of the big news. A couple of the biggest morsels being Sony's NEX-FS700U, which can shoot up to 960 frames per second, and some rather cryptic invitations being sent out from Canon which contain nearly no details on what they might be talking about. Rumors are swirling about the possibilities.
I know this sounds stupid. What would be the main difference between 24fps & 30fps? I know filmmakers use 24fps to have that "film" look but why do some people use 30fps? What if you were to do a product commercial or an event video such as wedding or concert, what frame rate would you use and why? Is it just for the aesthetic look of video to do 24fps? I am a little bit confused by this.
Hi, I'm looking to upgrade my equipment to HD video and I'm not sure what might work best for me. I have been shooting iceskating programs for the past 4yrs with my 2 sony vx 2100's. I have been looking atgetting 2sony HDR-AX2000 or just one and a sony HXR-NX5U.
But then would a DSLR work well for fast moving subjects or would it be to hard to keep in focus? I'm not familiar with how the manual focus would work for me.
