How many times have you heard video producers complain about their love-hate relationship with the new DSLR shooting and workflow? Yes, using a DSLR gives you the chance to swap lenses and capture great depth-of-field shots, but then you have to deal with the one big issue that traditional camcorders have addressed for decades: capturing good clean audio. BeachTEK has a solution.
I've posted quite a few bits of info concerning Canon DSLR's that dealt primarily with the technical aspects of cameras like the 5DmkII, 7D and 1DmkIV such as exposure ratings, and CMOS issues. Even found you guys some hardcore videos comparing DSLR's head-to-head against film cameras!
For all of you folks working with or looking to work with DSLR's for video, here's a good interview from JAG 35 with Rodney Charters the DP from the popular TV show '24'.

Steve Wiese and the Zacuto team are coming back with the "Great Shootout 2010" in which they bring the latest digital video cameras out and see how their imagery stacks up against traditional 35mm Film. This time the line up is all DSLR's and like last time, they'll be shot side by side with a 35mm film rig, professionally color graded and compared head to head. The big names like Canon, Nikon, Panasonic and others will be on the line for comparison by some of the top DP's and Digital Cinematographers in the business.
