Five DOP's talk about the pros and cons of shooting DSLR video. Good stuff. This is the first time I've been to the MacVideo website. Looks like a great resource.
Thanks for the link.At the end of the day it sounds like the feedback I got from you and Eric ;)It comes down to the audio at the end of the day for me; are you and one person team or do you have a sound person.
What do you guys think about that Sony NEX VG 10? It seems to have a lot of positives of DSLR video in a camcorder like body. I know it doesn't have manual audio control, XLR inputs etc. but it is compact and seems to alleviate a lot of the problems with DSLRs for run and gun.
I'm getting more and more comfortable shooting video with the DSLR. There is certainly a learning curve but on my last video I had a Sony EX1 available to use, but choose the MK2 because it's becoming what I'm used to. For feature stories where you have some time, it's great. I certainly wouldn't want to use it on a story that requires a lot of follow focus. I guess it's like every other piece of gear. It's a tool with a use. Not every tool is going to be right for every job.
yeah I agree Pat, these are just tools.
