The point I was making is that proper professional video cameras work just fine and have done for decades. Things like the EX-1 are just 'serious' amateur cameras.
F900 on a car ? Same form factor as a PDW-700, and I spent Monday morning doing a car shoot with two of them mounted on an Peugeot 406 estate.
If people want to make proper commercial productions use the professional kit and staff that deliver the goods .
Paul, that's a fair statement, but not
Without questions I'd like you to answer
A few if you don't mind because we'd all
Benefit from your experience.
What you point is true, and at the same
Time is it doable?
You are into the elite and trained in the
British broadcast, wich is probably the
Best in the world. And you belong to a
Generation highly skilled within a stable
Corporation if I might say to use a shortcut.
When you started and learned, there wasn't
Those little cheap boxes capable to deliver
Unthinkable quality just a few years ago, in
Wich we can even mount the best cine lenses.
Also, rule game has changed in the business and
To date it's the wild west.
Teevees are firing people, the younguest generations
Because it costs less. Low-end campaigns are done
Now with pirats with their dslr and graded with magic
Bullet looks 200 bucks app. People like you are generaly
Working in high-end com, cine, 3d. But the next generation
Are dslr users, after effects experts, and plug-ins addicts.
And currently are creating looks the ad agencies are
Talking seriously. You know that internet advert will beat
Other mediums. It's the mobile phone era.
And, for the first time, the new generation will have
To live with less than their parents.
When you say to use proper video cams, the budget
Question araises. If you had 20 now, what would you
Or said differently, could you recommend a proper video camera
That is affordable for the people who are making their
Steps in motion and want to grow, that would meet the
Requierements you think it should?
If you can give a few gear models, I shut my mouth and
Will listen to you. But if your statement is based on
Unrealistic budgets for Most of us, then it's no surprise
We are using af100 and gh2
The thing is that to become good, we have to produce,
Film, edit over and over again. Then if growing, the equipment
Do so. To reach the elite we have to work a lot of low-end
Assignements, in wich dslrs are difficult to beat.
Again, this is not a critism, you know i have great respect
For you, but I think that you are writing from your
Position. Now, I'd be very happy if you could go deaper
In your statement about dslrs and give an alternative,
Thinking if you were currently learning in the time we are in
And with the vast offer of systems available.
