There are lots of films of the dvx100 around the place, and none as good-looking as that one, so I guess these people may be right- it might be down to lighting and post and cc. The question is, what specifics? what NLE, what cc plugin? what lighting equipment? I don't mean to sound like its all down to equipment, I'm aware of that, but if I have the same equipment then I know for sure that it's not a restricting factor.

Thanks :)

Matt, I don't mean to sound like a prick...but you've gotta learn all this stuff yourself. Noone can give you a magic recipe. There's so much to learn. The only way it's really going to make sense is for you to do plenty of shooting and plenty of research. The pieces come together slowly. Once you start getting the building blocks, more and more starts to makes sense.

And don't be worried about the DVXs abilities. It's a wonderful camera. That said, you'll definately be able to make terrible looking footage with it. But you (or anybody) will also be able to make terrible looking footage with a camera costing 10 times as much.

Hi Steve,

I'm aware of that, thanks. This is all a part of my research. Although I'm a record producer I'm not entirely a beginner when it comes to photography and I learn a lot from behind the scenes pictures, info, and seeing the set up vs. results of shots. I have a finite budget and organised plans, but the questions I'm asking at the moment are all relevent to the permutations I'm considering.

Thanks,

Matt

FYI, that photo isn't the DVX taking that very shot in the film. Look closer! :)

If it isn't the exact moment of the still frame, well, no one's really THAT nitpicky.

Chill out!

Anyway you didn't say "that exact frame," you said that shot, and she's standing in a different place in the still, not stopping in the middle of the road. :-)

I'm chill. I guess I should have included a smiley.

In any case, you're right.
