I am a mid-level wedding and event videographer, and my trusty GL2 needs to be put out to pasture. I am interested in the film look I have been seeing online with DLSR cameras, and am seriously looking at the Canon D60. A few concerns I am hoping people here can address for me.
- Low Light: If I video it at a 1/30 shutter speed and use an on-camera light, can I avoid grainy videos? I was told if you get a lens with a large aperture you can get more light on the chip alos? I tried shooting with the Sony 1000 (shoulder mounted) and it was a disaster. Could never get good lowlight footage from it. And most of my events are in dark halls.
- I will not shoot in HD, but DV. (Or is that SD?) How many minutes will I get at that resolution? I understand the FAT files will have a limit.
- Do I have to convert the files to edit in iMovie HD or the newer version of it?
I do appreciate any feedback you can give me!
