Videography Technique / Videography Techniques....
« on: December 20, 2013, 12:09:02 PM »
I guess, I better start this off... although, I'm no professional, lets just say that I'm a beginner and/or student of video.

Hmmmm.... I guess its exactly like photography techniques....

Most of it is trial and error, with some exceptions.

I mean flash doesn't work with video, you're looking at continuous lighting.

Learn 3 point lighting, but that doesn't mean you have to use 3 point lighting 100% of the time, in fact... I'd be surprised if you're using it 50% of the time. Its the cinematographer's artistic point of view.

Canon General / Question re: 4K
« on: November 22, 2013, 09:51:46 PM »
I don't even know why I'm asking this here, but we will see if anyone knows the answer.

Do you really need a 4K TV to view 4K?

I mean, I view a lot of online stuff, and my monitor's resolution is only 1280X1024.
We all know the difference between 480p and 1080p, and you can see the difference even between 720p and 1080p. And, this is all through youtube. Anyway, I've been watching plenty of 2.5K videos on vimeo... the video is so pristine... and thats on my 1280X1024 monitor...

Similarly, there is a huge difference between a blu-ray movie that is 1080p and a dvd movie that is 1080p.

Canon General / Technique...

I just learned the "Rule of Thirds," which I really didn't know about till 2 of my friends were arguing about it 2 days ago. So out of curiosity, I decided to check it out now. I was surprised, cause I was framing my pictures and videos like that unconsciously.

I learned a lot of different types of techniques via youtube, especially with DigitalRev.
Long Exposure, Double Exposure, IR photography, Prism Photography, etc.

I'm sure given that many of the members here are professional photographers. I was hoping that you can share a technique or two with the forum? Unless you think that what you do is a trade secret.

Video & Movie / My first concept video....
« on: October 17, 2013, 10:51:00 PM »
I finished this a couple of months ago...
I'm not proud of it, because it could have been 100X better than it is...
Nonetheless, I learned a lot and I hope that I don't make the same mistakes that I made on this video on the next project.

Again, its my first concept video and I did it for a couple that got married on June 9, 2013.

Constructive criticism welcome.

EOS Bodies / Whats up with the....

Squishy shutter button?

Obviously, I'm coming from the rebel line...

So there are some things I miss, like the tilt-swivel screen, but I can live without it.

But I have to ask, whats up with the squishy shutter buttons on the 7D to Mark III.

Even when I tried out the 6D, it didn't have that squishiness... for me there has to be a certainty that I pressed it and it worked.

In the rebel line and the 6D, you push it and you hear a click and it stops.

But the pro line seems to have a spring of some sort, any specific reason?

Out of curiosity, can we retrofit a 70D sensor into a 7D camera body?

And, if this is possible, can we also put 2 digic 5+ chips into a 7D body as well?

Why or why not to each of the above 2 questions?

EOS Bodies / Why a high MP camera?
« on: July 06, 2013, 10:17:39 AM »
Out of curiosity, those looking for high MP cameras... why do you need anything above 18MP?
What kind of pictures are you going to be printing or publishing that requires like 30MP and above?
