      Ok, there’s probably been a ton of posts about how to achieve film quality with video (or more specifically, a panasonic hvx 200) but I’d really apprecieate any tips on how to get killer depth of field and what not.

      Thanks!

      The best to achieve a film look is to use 35mm lense converters such as Movie Tube, Red Rock M2 and of course

      SGpro, you will also need photographic lenses such Nikon, Sigima and many more

      To decrease the depth of field:

      1. Use long focus (zoom in)

      2. Try to use macro mode

      3. Open iris up as much as possible. Some cameramen speed up the shutter to compensate for proper exposure, I recommend use ND filter.

      There is extra hard core article with 3-store formulas in Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Depth_of_field

      See if it works for you.
