My cameras and kit

  1. Hi i just bought the panasonic gh2 and I'm about to buy a voigtlander nokton lens.. just wondering which would be better - voigtlander nokton 25mm or voigtlander nokton 17.5mm? i would be using it primarily for video.. i understand the 17.5mm has clickless aperture ring but it's easier to focus in 25mm? any advice welcome!

  3. Hi!   I am an amateur (but passionate!) filmmaker and would like to buy a display/monitor for video editing. Colour accuracy is of course important. I don't earn my money with video editing, so I don't want a high-end professional, x000 € expensive monitor, but something in the range of 600-900€ would be possible.   Which 27" display would you recommend? Or are two 24" displays better (ergonomically)? Thanks!  
  4. I was looking up some information on what Canon had in store for the future and I ran across this forum.  It's filled with photographers that are angry Canon is giving any love to the video world!  I couldn't believe how many people were upset.   Personally I think if you can't pick up any Canon or Nikon DSLR above their very basic entry models and take decent pictures the issue isn't with the camera.  Once 18 megapixels was hit I would have thought most people would be satisfied with the megapixel count in APS-C world.  Video is the part of the camera that needs a lot of work.  But I guess there a substantial number of people that disagree with me.   Anyway it was interesting hearing some of the other voices yelling at Canon.  Here is a taste...                 That was just a sample of page one.  So who should Canon listen to?  It's weird.  I have never seen such a divergent set of opinions about a product line.  And both worlds seem totally unaware the other exists.
  5. Hi anytime i pan with my canon 7D the video jitter and is not smooth. I shoot at 24fps at 1/50 shutter speed. Any advice? thanks in advance...
  6. Hi guys,   Long time reader, first time poster. I have a small production company, we shoot some studio stuff weekly, and venture out making some comedy sketches, and soon we hope to be doing some slightly heavier drama. we always strive to make our stuff look great, but we're a small run-and-gun team. We work out of backpacks with mostly handheld kit.   We need a new camera. One we can sync our H6N into, use in the studio with our Autocue, our Stedicam and take out on shoots. We've narrowed it down to the 700D(T5i), the GH2/3 (? same ?) and the A57. Can you offer any advice?    Important factors are :   Form factor Ease of use and battery life FPS Lens availability usability (Focus peaking would be nice...)   Thank in advance - and before I'm lambasted I know this will have been asked a hundred times, but trawling though all the posts will take an age....
  7. http://vimeo.com/71482344 Leave A Trail - Canon 50D Raw Short Film, 1920 X 1080 Shooting raw on the Canon 50D. I shot with a faster CF Card (100 MBS) that gave me 1584 X 892 resolution at 24 FPS using the newest Magic Lantern Raw hack without skipping frames. I could shoot for at least 4 minutes (I didn't try shooting longer). I did my color correction with Adobe Photoshop and converted to 1920 X 1080 for Vimeo in Compressor. Comments welcome. Thank you.
  8. hey i have a sony alpha a58 and the settings are all different to what i expect and i was wondering if someone could tell me the bestb settings for the sony alpha a58 and im mainly filming skatboarding.  I tried one setting and that quality was really un detailed and i really need someone to tell me the best setting for it. From memory the settings were 'avchd' and 'mp4' but when i shot in mp4 the quality was crap and i had it in 1080p.  please can someone tell me whatb the best setting is!

I need to know the best settings for besty video quality because when i put it on my pc the quality ios very un detailed and it looks horrible. PLEASE HELP!!!
  10. Hi, I have kind of problem with my video, I think. It's hard to describe it, so watch this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mhLb2VCYUak and this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XCwKMco1VMo I think the video quality is terrible. I used auto focus but then I tune the focus by my hand because I know the auto focus is not very good. So I think the problem must be somewhere else. I have only kit lenses, that means the 18-55mm and 50mm f1.8. The first video was shot with the 18-55mm and the second with 50mm. I really don't know what to do with this. Can anyone help me please? Thank you in advance and sorry for my English.
  11. Music video for the teen group EMKE.  Shot over the weekend, my first time using a RAW workflow.  I was totally unprepared for the amount of post work, but in the end the quality of the picture, both resolution and color, is outstanding!  Thanks again to the Magic Lantern Team for making it all possible!   https://vimeo.com/66681135    
  12. I am interested in doing more video, but feel very restricted by my cheap sanyo camcorder. I have a Sony a200 for still photography, and have managed to accumulate 1 sony and 3 minolta lenses. I don't have a wide angle lense, or a telephoto bigger than 300mm (35mm equivalent), but being able to use those lenses and having manual control of the camera would open the door to a great many more possibilities.   So: how good are current sony dslr's for video? I was eying the a57, which seemed to be able to do both still photos and video quite nicely.   But on the other hand, with the new blackmagic camera coming out, maybe it would make sense to save up longer and get that. Micro four thirds seems to be the lense mount of the future, and it would be nice to feel my lenses will be useful on future equipment. There is an adapter to convert the A mount to the E mount, but I have failed to find any which would adapt it to MFT..... dropping $1k for the camera alone would be a real stretch financially, I don't know how viable that option would be if I had to purchase new lenses for it as well....   Anyway, anyone have experience with the sony dslrs for video?

  14. I got a Note 2, and I was just checking its Video Features, and, I love some of the presets. As a matter of fact, I found that the presets are very, very interesting. I like the resolution of the video video camera, too. I only wish, it had a faster lens (it has an f2.6 lens).   Somehow, the idea of using a mobile device, to make films, or videos, seems more interesting, than using a camera, lens, mics, stands (tripods, tracks etc), external monitor etc.   I wish, that Rode would make a Mic compatible with Android Devices, too. Also, I wish Magic Lantern would create apps, much on the lines of their famous hacks.      I checked a few videos from the Note 2, and the quality, in bright light, is pretty amazing. This video is a good example of  video quality:   http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=xRbY-MoKsA8#!     Also, I was wondering, whether anyone has used external lenses, on their iPhone or Android devices?   I found many add-ons, but, I also found this very interesting DIY project:   http://smartphones.wonderhowto.com/how-to/5-simple-ways-add-macro-lens-your-smartphone-0139123/              
  15. Hey, this ended up on ESPN Sportscenter Top 10 on Thursday night, as the #1 video, and was played on a bunch of ESPN shows on Friday.  I shot it Wed. night.  I shoot video for fun of the Jacksonville College games and this is Daniel Skinner putting down a crazy dunk from almost the free throw line.  They were playing Tyler Junior College in Tyler, TX.   I know it's not great footage, but guess I at least managed to get the shot.  I was shooting with my GH2 and the 14-140 lens.  I think I had the ISO at 1250.  Not sure I was messing around with it at different times.  Pretty cool to get it on there and the guys on the team are getting a real kick out of it.  Kind of getting crazy as it seems to be going viral.   Lum   [url="http://youtu.be/bhoah2OGltM"]http://youtu.be/bhoah2OGltM[/url]  
  16. [color=#000000][font=Tahoma, Helvetica, sans-serif][size=3][background=rgb(238, 238, 238)] I have succumbed and have an RX100 coming this week to be my B camera to my Sony Nex 5N![/background][/size][/font][/color][color=#000000][font=Tahoma, Helvetica, sans-serif][size=3][background=rgb(238, 238, 238)] I ideally want to shoot footage on the RX100 to look identical to that of the 5N so if I was to use both at a function I could easily mix in footage from both cameras to create a final piece.[/background][/size][/font][/color][color=#000000][font=Tahoma, Helvetica, sans-serif][size=3][background=rgb(238, 238, 238)] The constant question marks over shutter speeds at 50p on both cameras is also bothering me. I shot some footage at 50p 1/50 to see if the footage would be useable both in slow motion in a 25p timeline and also at normal speed in a 25p timeline. In both cases I was not too happy with the motion blur, It just does not look as good as shooting either natively at 25p at 1/50 or 50p 1/100 for slow mo in a 25p timeline.[/background][/size][/font][/color][color=#000000][font=Tahoma, Helvetica, sans-serif][size=3][background=rgb(238, 238, 238)] Based on the above I think you have to make a decision before you shoot any footage at 50p that is to be used in a 25p timeline. That decision is to whether your footage is going to be slowed down in post or not. Based on this answer you can then decide to shoot 50p at 1/100 for slow mo or 1/50 for nornal speed..although like I said I still think 1/50 shutter at 50p at normal speed in a 25p timeline still does not like as good as shooting natively at 25p on the camera (which you cannot obviously do on the RX100, but you can on the 5N)[/background][/size][/font][/color][color=#000000][font=Tahoma, Helvetica, sans-serif][size=3][background=rgb(238, 238, 238)] I will always be putting any footage I shoot in a 25p line so that is the only constant I am sticking with…its how I merge the footage from both cameras and get the best settings on both to deliver the best output….that is my main concern and caveat at this stage.[/background][/size][/font][/color][color=#000000][font=Tahoma, Helvetica, sans-serif][size=3][background=rgb(238, 238, 238)] With all this in mind I think I might choose to use my NEX 5N for 25p 1/50 footage and my RX100 for 50p 1/100 slow mo footage exclusively.[/background][/size][/font][/color][color=#000000][font=Tahoma, Helvetica, sans-serif][size=3][background=rgb(238, 238, 238)] If anyone can give any sage help and advice on this I would greatly appreciate it.[/background][/size][/font][/color]
  17. Hi all, i just came back from a trip in Japan and made this short clip about Tokyo, it was my first use of timelapse in a video and i tried to make the most of it when possible. [url="https://vimeo.com/51719933"]http://vimeo.com/51719933[/url] Hope you like it and thanks for watching !
  18. Hi, I'm new to DSLR and HD DSLR photo shooting. Up until now I've being taking HD video with a Sanyo (now Panasonic) HD-2000 - a Full HD camcorder which allegedly can do stills (not good ones..). At the time I had a hard time choosing between the Sharp and the Canon 550D but the fact that I was interested primarily in Video I chose the Sanyo. Over time I accessorized it and even built a DOF adapter for NIKON lens. Now it's time to move on and I feel it's time to revisit the DSLR scene.. (you know DOF, movie style).. I've read a lot of reviews and I pretty much narrowed it down to the GH2 when I stumbled across the reviews for the Sony Alpha A57 or A37. I hope I will not raise hell with the following questions, I would like to kno why not choose Sony Alpha A57 over the GH2? Assuming that I will be 70%-60% videographer and 30%-40% photographer. It seems that for the same amount of money you get with Sony better built camera, larger sensor, good continues autofocus, larger selection of original lenses, much better back screen and higher resolution for stills. I've big hands and I spoke today with a former GH2 owner who complaint that the GH2 was on the "too small" side for him. Thoughts? Ideas?
  19. Hi dudes, I've been a long time reader here and this is my first proper comment. Recently me and my colleague set up a production company for narrative projects and our first project was a music video. We tried to offer a band we know (signed to an independent label) something different, with a plotline of a cagefighter to cut back to back to them playing in an abandoned industrial location we've rented for the day. We asked for a decent budget of £800, which in the end left about £100 for me and £100 for my producer/ 1st AD. It was just us two on the crew. They think we've ripped them off. They're not being grumpy, just generally dissatisfied with the end result. So I was wondering if I could get some feedback from the GH2 community and see if you guys think we've charged too much for this: https://vimeo.com/48942536 Video details/ camera settings in the vimeo description Lucas

  21. So we all know that the GH2 is still king for video, specially when you want to get the best bang for the buck, but... ...What would you say are the Top 10 Best Cameras for Video? RX100? G5? EM-5? 60D? name your weapons of choice! ;)
