DSLRs for Movie - Our Experience

 Let me first say that the standard that the DSLR creates shooting HD movie making use of their large imaging processor is outstanding. Allow me to also claim that from the knowledge they are nowhere near as user friendly for firing movie as a real video camera.CAMERAS USED We used 3 Panasonic HMC 150 HD movie cameras, 2 Cannon T2i DSLRs and a Panasonic Lumix GH1 DSLR.FOCUSING Persons talk about the truly amazing outcomes with the range of subject of a DSLR. What they are really speaing frankly about may be the short level of field. This means that only the subject focused on is in emphasis and the back ground and front blur. That is great for fixed photographs but also for a going target, sustaining target with the Canons is just a chore. To utilize autofocus on the Canons you place the setting to autofocus and then push the shutter 1/2 way. If your issue techniques with the low depth of subject you're quickly out of focus. Additionally you can concentration manually. As a result of my vision situation viewing up close (I require studying glasses), it had been extremely hard to manually focus.The Lumix has an auto tracking autofocus which works significantly better. We also had difficulties with the Canons since as stated I require cups for closeup and the only path to see and focus video is on the LCD screen which must be presented much enough away to see. Whenever you do this, the camera is hard to help keep steady. Next knowledge we sought out and bought a Cinevate Cyclops which is really a viewfinder which supports and enlarges the Canon LCD to almost how big is a tiny monitor. This is a better option but with no diopter adjustment still not ideal for people with vision such as mine Tierpark. The Panasonic Lumix was easier to utilize not merely due to the autofocus feature but additionally since you need to use not just the LCD screen but while there is number reflection, the eyepiece also that includes a diopter change like the majority of video cameras and you can hold it proper up to that person also improving steadiness.The processor in the Cannon is bigger compared to the 4/3 processor in the Lumix. This can be a blended blessing. A larger processor offers top quality but smaller degree of subject which in my experience limited the video recording usability. The somewhat smaller Lumix processor features a larger depth of field meaning more is in focus front and background. This in my experience was far more practical.LENSES In a quickly changing setting we discovered the product range of the Lumix stock contact 14mm to 140mm successful for just about all shots. For the Canons we'd to improve lenses. Also excellent contacts are costly generally about $1000 or even more each so to capture effectively you need to invest or rent a costly secure of glass and all of the lenses have a maximum aperture of around F3.5 so that you do not obviously have good minimal gentle capability. You will find primary lenses offered at F1.2, F1.4, F1.8, etc. nevertheless you lose the flexibleness of a zoom lens.AUDIO Sound on the Brother DSLRs had no information change but did have a jack for placing an additional mic. On this assignment we depended on the real video cameras as the key audio recorder. For DSLRs it is preferred to utilize an external audio recorder such as for instance people from Move to get top quality audio. Remember that a lot of DSLRs have computerized obtain so noise is likely to be amplified when audio is softer.RECORDING TIME There's also a limit of 12 minutes per documenting series with the Canons. With the Panasonic you are able to record without ending till your memory stay is full.CONCLUSIONS For run and rifle firing, a genuine video camera with autofocus and easy manual regulates continues to be my selection for now. Now in researching the Panasonic Lumix to the Cannon, I need to slim towards the Lumix for video work.In conclusion the DSLRs offer remarkable quality when you can deal with the functioning (focusing, adjusting) difficulties. The Panasonic Lumix GH1 is much better suited for shooting video than the Canons and we are looking to buy the newest Panasonic Lumix GH2 as it pertains out in December. That looks to offer more workable depth of area with different features that make firing movie easier. Also the micro 4/3 lenses with this camera will soon be suitable for the new Panasonic AF100 camcorder which uses the 4/3 processor but is really a real movie camera.
