I developed a free director's viewfinder app for iPhones / iPad (poor man's Artemis? ? )
The suported cameras are ARRI, Red, Blackmagic, Sony, etc.
It lets you see exact framing for your favorite camera just where you stand with an iPhone in your hand.
So you can plan your next shoot on location even if you don't have a camera or a lens with you.
The app features support for:
- optical adapters (boosters)
- anamorphic lenses
- LUTs (M31, Teal+Orange, etc)
- frame guides
The app has ads but I tried to make them non-intrusive. Besides, you can turn them off.
Feel free to check it out and let me know what you think.
Hello all! I am new here, so this is my first post/thread here ever.
Today I got my Panasonic Lumix GH3. Before I have used Olympus OM-D E-M5 and Fujifilm X-E1/X100s for video recording. I have never used a camera that allows me full control during video recording before.
I ordered the GH3 because I am going to make a documentary movie about a motorcycle club during this coming summer. They ride together every Monday during the summer period. I am going to follow them.
I am going to record video from the places they visit, maybe some video during their rides. Making interviews etc.
During autumn after the season is over - I am going to edit the movie and burn it to DVD:s. Then sell the movie to the members of the motorcycle club (a few hundred members).
The selling point of this documentary is the nostalgic value. It doesÂ´t need to be the most professional looking movie. But I would like to make it as good as I possible can.
I have a few months to prepare myself, training video recording with the GH3.
I would love to get some tips of what I need for this project. Rigs (for walking), shotgun mics etc.?
I live in a PAL-area; what frame rates are recommended; 24p, 25p, 50p for different situations (interview, motorcycles moving...)? In full manual does it go the double shutter speed over the framerate (like 1/50 for 25p etc.)?
All tips are deeply appreciated!
Olympus EM5 body costs: 800â‚¬
Panasonic GH3 body costs: 1200â‚¬
Both are shooting 60fps both have 16mp sensor.
I believe that Olympus EM5 is the best camera for that price & that it has the same video quality with the Panasonic GH3 (i am telling that cause i've seen a lot of compares), correct me if i am wrong!
Here is a very nice Olympus EM5 video
