Thanks for the explanation - it's hard to judge formats on a small web video especially since you did not use the normal advantages of 35mm (shallow DOF etc.)



Are you shooting them all on 35mm?
oh ok gotcha.....no worries dude. what production company are you with dude?

the shallow dof is b/c we used this super wide lense mostly. it was our only prime...and then the 25-250 zoom i think. not sure on the specs on it.

......not ALL of them, some on an SR3...but we just bought the HVX200 with the M2 adapter so we can throw on some primes. and going to buy some other goodies for it, so yea...as much as i hate video and HD. you cant deny that camera (for its cost) is pretty awesome. soooo yea. the next video were doing is gonna be shot on that guy...hopefully it holds up well and the workflow is as good as it has been for everyone else.

do you do videos in greensboro then? or are you more regional or national? and what are you shooting on as well?

I have my own small production company shooting mostly local stuff while I work on my personal film projects. Just got my feet wet in music video and did my first one on spec for a local band. I have a DVX kit, so we shot it on two days for about $250.

I'm not a fan of the current batch of low-cost HD cams - I'm holding out for RED, Silicon Imaging or other new company. I was 15th on EVS's HVX pre-order list but canceled it.

thats rad....id love to see the video for sure.

.....i hate video, i honestly want nothing to do with it. but when we/i are shooting on film and try to explain to some managers/artists/clients and what not what its gonna look like in a few weeks when we get the stock back, they arnt too into that idea. they wana see something right then and there.

otherwise, id never touch video.

I understand - I never liked video either until I got my DVX. I really like shooting with the camera and the video holds up okay. It's not film (especially latitude wise) and I do love shooting film but hate paying for it, so in recent years I've only shot still 35mm.

Bottom like is I love making films more than shooting on film stock, so DVX allows me to make moving images without watching money fly out the camera.
