DSLR Video News

The DSLR Stealth Factor
Andrew Reid argues that the important thing about DSLR video cameras is their small size and stealth abilities.
DSLRs like the GH2 are pretty far from industry standards and professional A/V equipment as we know it. They are a complete break from what has become the norm at broadcasters, rental companies or film studios both large and small. As video cameras they throw the baby out with the bathwater as far as operation goes (they’re photographic cameras, after all).

Lighting for Video
Adorama has put together a couple of videos on using HDSLRs, hosted by Mark Wallace. The first part focuses on shooting, and the second episode covers lighting (which will apply to any kind of camera you use.)

Shane Hurlbut used DSLRs extensively in shooting a commercial for the Marine Corp. Now he's running a competition to pick which shot was made with which of three DSLRs or was shot with film.  Winner gets a copy of Adobe CS5 Production Premium. You have until tomorrow to enter.
We thought it would be fun to do another contest. See if you can figure out which is the 5D, 7D and 1D footage and which is the film footage above. Give us a break down shot by shot using the form below (there are 28 frames total). The most accurate entries will be named winners. First place wins Adobe CS5 Production Premium. Contest entries will be accepted up until Wednesday, January 26, 2011 at 11:59pm.
