Michael & Chrisanthi Wedding Highlights
Dimitris Mantalias Dimitris Mantalias is offline September 29th, 2010, 06:34 AM

This one wedding had a bit of experimentation for us. Although we generally don't interfere with the couple, giving directions and such (except for the photoshooting sessions and still not always), we decided to go with the zero interference in this one, in order to go for the videojournalist side of wedding video. That means, we weren't talking to the couple (I mean, almost never! :) ), we didn't go close to the subjects (except for a couple of times) and generally we were shooting from a distance, so we can minimize the influence photographers and videographers have on the couple's behavior. Of course the hard part is to make such footage work with our personal style, but I think it went well. Any recommendations and feedback are always welcome.

Beautiful mate, really well edited and perfectly synced with the soundtrack.

Hate to ask, but what camera/setup are you using?

Thanks mate.

Thanks Jordan. Our gear is the old (but still kicking) Sony FX1 (2 of them actually) and a combination of DSLRs, 550D and 7D with various lenses. Also a Glidetrack and a Glidecam 4000.

Very nice, do you use your glidetrack with the FX1? Interested to know how well it works. Good to see you're making great use of the FX1 still, i think it's around the same age as my V1.

No, we avoid putting FX1 on a glidetrack. FX1 is already pretty heavy (if you consider it also wears a wide-angle lens) and glidetrack is not the smoother option for tracking, so we prefer putting our DSLRs on that. FX1 is OK when you work with enough good light to keep it to 0 dB (for example the outdoor scenes and well-lit rooms) but there is a problem when you try to combine dark footage from DSLR and FX1. Everything can be solved to a certain extent in post though, but since I worked with EX1 instead of FX1 for some wedding, I can see the difference clearly...

But for use with Glidecam, there is no alternative but to stick with camcorders instead of DSLRs. Not only we don't have to worry about focus, but you can use a zoom controller for some amazing shooting results.
