I'm thinking about getting a bit into photography.
So question I have is what are the disadvantages vs advantages of:
- Triggering external flash using an external transmitter vs an internal...

I was watching the highlights of this game and saw a guy with a Nikon D4 on a Monopod recording video of the game.
(It was video because he had the Nikon microphone on his D4).
Does anyone know...

Oh thought it was 18mm equivalent. Anyhow no it is not a trick question. It is a very valid question when you see these as film tools.
It's like that movie "Searching for Sugar Man", that movie...
Depends on your needs.
For example, the guys at Still Motion uses the H1 to mic up the bride for their wedding films. So the H1 will be tied to the garter belt of the bride with a lav mic...
I thought the T3i was at the image level (hence the "digital zoom" feature).
Remember that filming is all about story. So crop modes indeed can add to the story by allowing for different combinations of field of view, depth of field and focusing characteristics. A 24mm F1.4...
I totally agree with you, ideally I wish we had a camera that had multiple crop modes and still maintains equal sharpness throughout each mode.
The Nikon D4 comes close but unfortunately it is...
I thought the 4K was 4:2:2 internal? Also how did you come to the conclusion of "444"?
Which camera did you use for 0:17? And what lens, aperture, shutter and iso setting did you use?
At 0:34 why did you choose to use a wide angle fish-eye for your composition?

Which one do you think is better?
Both are 18mm, the Coolpix "A" essentially is a lens that is fixed to a body for $300 less than the Zeiss 18mm F3.5 and is faster at F2.8.
Anyone done any...

Another great example of how story affects the usage of the tool. i.e. "...take after take..." this implies a slower moving production using stricter storyboarding...etc. Having said that, the...

The tool you use has a great impact on how you tell the story. I'm not in any way implying that a cheap camera means lesser quality. If a GH2 fits the story then so be it (i.e. smaller form factor...

+1, definitely the practical approach!
02-27-2013, 04:22 AM
But isn't "stability" defined by the story you're trying to tell?
02-27-2013, 04:21 AM
But through your experience, how could the cameras you've used been different or improved to benefit the way you tell stories?

Just trying to get people's feedback on the topic ;) What's your preference?

Sorry I was trying to get at the fundamental difference between the inner workings of a camera vs the inner workings of a lens. One is inherently physical in nature (i.e. glass) and the other...

Sorry when I mentioned "contrast peaking" I meant to say "Edge Enhanced Peaking". These are found on the Manhattan LCD monitors and even the ones from China branded Camax.
The idea behind Edge...

With respect to peaking, what kind of options would you choose? i.e. Contrast peaking vs red outline peaking vs peaking with black and white only?

What advantages do you think CCD sensors have in 2013 (and beyond) now that we see CMOS sensors with Global Shutter and up to 20 stops of dynamic range and clean 20,000 ISO.
02-24-2013, 03:07 PM
Of course lenses are different as they are physical glass. A camera on the other hand is all transistors and software, so we can actually design the perfect camera based on what our aggregate...

What would you do to the 1DC to make it more "perfect" for you?
02-24-2013, 09:25 AM
Sounds like you're on slower productions rather than run and gun?

Notice how this post is for the Independent Film maker who has to rely on a "go-to" camera for day to day work. Yes from time to time we get clients that can budget in a camera as the "right tool"...

What about crop modes? So that you can have APS-C and Full Frame in a single body? In terms of dynamic range, would you rather have it skewed towards shadows or highlights?
