noone Posted March 5, 2017 Share Posted March 5, 2017 I thought if a movie was cinematic or not depended on if they used the same gear as "you" do or not? It seems the better the film maker, the less the need for expensive gear (I need as pricey as it gets). Just about all cameras have some things they do well and others not so much though so there is still a place for choosing the right gear for the job from what is available to you. I was photographing a band last Friday night and as an afterthought recorded an original song they have and I started late, was hand held and not stabilized and out of focus for the first few seconds. I shot in both XAVC-s and MP4 at the same time. Looking at the results, the MP4 is terrible. Horrid ghosting and just an ugly mess (was using auto ISO and was varying up to around ISO 51200 I think), the XAVC-s was actually ok (apart from the issues that are all from ME) and good enough to give the band at least so it just means that me plus a reasonable camera for video is ok sometimes, me plus a lesser camera (or shooting a lower quality anyway) is unwatchable. Skill and know how matters most of the time, gear matters some of the time. Skill AND gear together is almost always going to win jonpais 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
