probably a DSLR which make a feature of shallow depth of field, or a conventional video camera further away, zoomed in, with the aperture open as wide as possible. Other than the shallow DoF, I don't see much else – although I have a suspicion that there could have been some straightforward greenscreen keying used. What did you see that tweaked your curiosity?
The camera used in that video is most likely either a Canon 60D, DSLR, or a Sony A65. DSLR cameras have large image sensors with high megapixel resolution, a 1000$ dslr will have a pas-c sized sensor, probably used on this video, a full frame dslr has a image sensor the size of 35mm film such as the canon 5D mrk III, full frames cost about $3000, then you go up to full frame 2k and 4k and now 6k cameras, the red epic, in which the avengers was shot with, has 6k full frame sensor now
here is a video shot with the 5D mark II full frame DSLR
i suspected he used a DLSR, and the Canon EOS 60D is the one he suggest in a course of his.
the thing that i like the most is the blurred background.
So what type of lens would give this effect with the EOS 60D?
sorry for these types of questions, but i am a newbie 🙂
I would have to ssay it looks like a green screen had been used. The footage was probably taken with a dslr though.
You don't necessarily need a green screen. The easiest way to achieve that effect is to take your DSLR (if you have one), and zoom in anywhere between 55 and 300mm. Then create space between the camera and your subject, and between the subject and background.
Let us know how it turns out!
