Professional and enthusiast shooters alike will look with extreme affection on the new AF-S NIKKOR 24-70mm f/2.8E ED VR — it improves in nearly every way on its iconic predecessor when it comes to sharpness, speed, control and physical durability.
Today Nikon announced the D750, a compact full frame DSLR, as well as the SB-500 Speedlight and AF-S NIKKOR 20mm f/1.8G ED Lens. Representing a leap forward in Nikon compact DSLR technology, the D750 is Nikon’s first FX-format D-SLR with a tilting 3.2” tilting Vari-Angle LCD.
Over the years Nikon has widely become known for having exceptional sensors and processors. If you go to any source that rates sensors, you'll see Nikon's FX line littering the top 10. This has made Nikon a pretty obvious choice for photographers, but in the videography world Nikon has always been cast behind Canon's all-encompassing cult-like shadow.
I am recording a clip of some subjects on a white background.
Camera is Nikon D800E, on tripod, static, Mode set to M, f/5.6, S 1/50, Manual autofocus, WB daylight, ISO 200. Recording is in DNxHD on Atomos Ninjia 2. Scene is illuminated with daylight fluorecent bulbs trough diffusing sheets.
Well, the problem is that depending on the number of objects on the scene the brightness of the objects is changing:
- with few objects (lots of white) the objects looks like "washed"
DSLR cameras are now a staple of video. Consumer and prosumer video creators who desire the cinematic look created by shallow depth of field and interchangeable lenses turn to the reasonably priced DSLR market for solutions, without the expense of a high end digital cinema camera.
