Though it is ‘always a joy’ answering the eternal question ‘What camera should I buy?’ for the noobies in the posts, every now and then I like to throw the intermediate and advanced folks a bone.
DSLR based video cameras are turning the industry on it’s collective ear and the workflow issues in post are really starting to work themselves out. Now that the initial shock of getting stunning cinematic imagery is starting to wear off, the ‘real art’ is starting to come forth.
Here’s a video on the Canon EOS 7D that shows how you can increase the camera’s dynamic range in camera before you get started on post work color grading. It surprised me how simple it is and how much more stunning the looks of your footage can be while shooting.
