Popular Post HelsinkiZim Posted April 5, 2017 Popular Post Share Posted April 5, 2017 On my walk to drop off some gear at the rental house, I ran into 5 teenagers filming. I of course wanted to ask what they were up to, camera, lens etc, and it ended up being a very enlightening experience (15mins of). They are vloggers and instagramers here in Finland with over 100 000 followers/ subscribers in each medium. I, indeed, was the old fart (all 37 of my years on earth) they were humouring but they were super pleasant and made my day. But to the point, all they had as 'gear' was an olympus, native pancake lens, and a tiny plastic tripod. Their main goal was to walk around the city and produce content. I metioned I had some stuff like the Zhiyun Crane, like it was impressive... but it turns out that kind of stuff was arbitrary to their interests. These guys were content machines. It made me think. Have I been getting it all wrong? Yes, I script, I storyboard, I know my way around a manual cinema camera and traditional lighting techniques... But who cares anymore? These kids are the future and they did not care a toss about dynamic range or bitrates. They wanted everything auto so they could focus on actually enjoying a shoot. Something to think about... j_one, Cinegain, Jaime Valles and 12 others 15 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
