Mobile Filmmaking


Recommended Posts

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:





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:

There are no excuses. It's not the camera. They made a scope action movie with a Nokia.



Axel, i Completely agree with you. 




the new Sony Xperia Z Black does 1080p HDR !! yes the first cell phone to do HDR video!!

I just got one its awsome!!

its also has a 1920x1080 screen that is so sharp and its waterproof



I feel, Full HD resolution on a mobile device is a waste of technology, since you cannot possibly tell the difference between something with even half that resolution, and full HD. Though, for people who wanna create Projectors, out of their devices, it would be gr8 to have a Full HD resolution Mobile or Phablet. Especially, if it is Exceptionally bright.

      Hey all! I want to share this trailer for Sennheiser's Pro Talk Season 2 I shot using a Sony FS7, A7iii and A7sii.
      Two weeks before the shoot I decided I wasn't happy with my current slog3 workflow and wanted to change it up. I found Pro Color V3 (at the time, V4 was not out yet) and gave it a shot. I loaded it up on the A7sii and A7iii, barely made a few tweaks to both to match them up, give me a great result and bam. I was sold. I then created a preset in FCPX (yea I edit on FCPX for now) that took my FS7 slog3 footage and popped it into Pro Color V3 matching the other two cameras perfectly. So my new flow is like this, Pro Color on the A7 series cameras and the FS7 shoots slog3, I then match the FS7 to the A7 series cameras in post and work from there. The reason why I needed Pro Color in my life was because I had these beautiful little A7 series cameras but couldn't use them to their full (small) potential shooting slog3. I didn't want to have to tote around an external monitor, etc. There's a lot more to say but I'll leave it at that. Way more to come. Enjoy.

      Hey all, jumping right in here on the forums to share my work shot using Pro Color!

      I've come from the Canon world but now love my Sonys. Pro Color was a God-sent and I am fully embracing it!
      More to come but in the meantime please see this short video of a buddy of mine fishing shot handheld on the new Sony A7iii using a Nikkor 35mm f1.4 ai-s and 105mm f2.5 ai-s. V3 Pro Color was installed on the camera as at the time of filming V4 was not yet out. I applied a Lut of mine, Tenkara, you can grab from my website.
      Thanks Andrew for making these killer profiles!

      For sale is a slightly used Canon SL2. I'm a reviewer on YouTube and bought this camera for a review. So if you buy this, you're getting a very lightly used camera. 

      The SL2 has all the modern features from Canon. Dual Pixel AF and Digic 7 processor. I love the small size of this camera. 

      If you have any questions at all, please don't hesitate to ask.
