Re: 5D footage for broadcast

SVT, the Swedish national TV station, is broadcasting DSLR program nearly ones a day. The productions are not small, so it's not about the money... And they have no problem broadcasting the shows, the images looks as clean as on the camera, my editing monitor or on the web...
I think it's funny... Big Hollywood productions are using the camera, etc etc... but still it's some who think they are not "good enough".
It's a TOOL, that you can get shot with that you can't get with other cameras...

Re: 5D footage for broadcast

The BBC is broadcasting the comedy " Shelfstackers", which is shot on DSLRs, although it's on non HD BBC Three. However, even on SD, it doesn't look as good as productions shot on the more expensive cameras.although it does have a shallow DOF.

The Hollywood productions commonly use them as special cameras, eg for confined spaces.There's nothing new in that, they used to use 16mm gun cameras in feature films. The episode of "House" that used them didn't have any cost benefits because of the increased post production costs. However, the extreme shallow DOF suited the claustrophobic story in that episode.

Now the case for using the DSLRs is very much smaller because the cheap large sensor video cameras that have all the connections you need to shoot professional video plus none of the moire and other DSLR arifacts. Someone even filmed in Grand Central Station with a pre production NEX FS 100 without permission.

These cameras can meet the shallow DOF fashion for the broadcasters, without having the issues.

Re: 5D footage for broadcast

Just learn how to transcode your footage before delivery...

When DSLRs came about, but before they were popular, I would flat out lie to people that I had shot on an F900 or F350. What's more shocking is that they usually believed it.

Remind me not to hire you to shoot anything I might need.

Re: 5D footage for broadcast

The BBC rejected a HD production that had been shot on EX series cameras at 35Mbit/s, they do more than just look at them during quality control. The production company had to re-shoot, they were in breach of contract.

That's not say they never use them, I know DSLRs have been used for car interior shots etc.on BBC dramas.

Wasn't an episode of "House" and "24" shot on DSLR?

Re: 5D footage for broadcast

The whole opening for SNL is shot on a 5D Mark II.

And yes, an episode of House was also shot on that camera and broadcast on Fox.
