How many of you have received a memo from ABC News stating that the magazine shows will now use the DVX100 as its camera of choice?
Granted, this is a stretch in theory but it still applies to this very situation. You could be given the best camera technology and worst talent and crash or, the worst technology and best talent and shine.Which is better...? ? Slide Film, negative Film? Answer...it depends!
Ivan, again so elegantly written. I guess I can add button pusher to my resume.Tim, with me it's not just the picture quality, with me it's also having total and precise control over my tools. After all I'm a craftsmen. Sounds to me like you're turning out to be a button pusher
Ivan, considered yourself informed. These shows were not shot entirely on handicams, but they had a useful purpose, which has been my point along.It's news to me that reality TV and handicams go hand in hand
Which film festival or film did you attend that left you with such a negative experience?have yet to see a $4k handycam blow up nicely to emulate film curve characteristics.
You should call the Star Trek crew and help them out of their jam. Iâ€™m sure they could use someone of your experience on set.Jesus, most REAL CINEMATOGRAPHERS working with film say even a big chip F950 HDcam with a very expensive lens, running uncompressed at 1.49Gbps into an HDreel won't nicely emulate film curve characteristics.
Ivan, youâ€™re kidding right!Even if the electronics could, a cinematographer couldn't properly focus a toy camera to get the needed shots.
As do I find this mind numbing so in closing, for anyone searching for their own answers to Cinematography issues relating to both film and video. The websites listed below are good starting points for information in a professional manner.With all due respect but I find these same old arguments laughable at best. Almost everyone else who ever seen a real film shot on a real film camera/lens can see the difference between that and an amateur piece of crap shot on a handycam blown up to film. The difference will be there, even if GOD himself did the shooting
