DV cameras


#41

yeah the canon Xi seems pretty stable


#42

Shit :o



Sorry just saw those screen shots- pretty amazing!



Well now I’ve seen what THAT model is capable of, I’ll have to choose even more carefully. One quick question- are the battlefield scenes rigged up with lighting, or did you just point and shoot, so to speak?


#43

I really dont like the look of that camera at all thats y i would not suggest shooting a movie on dv if you are trying to make a movie for your debut film.


#44

You can’t really afford the price of a 16mm or 35mm film, can you ? So DV is definitively the opportunity for everyone. :wink:


#45

yes but how many movies get made a year on dv that are actually good? Dv gives a bad feel to the movie in my opinion and if u can raise up 10-15 grand beleave me a movie could be shot on 16mm.


#46

Well, let’s say DV is the opportunity for short-movies, then when it comes to serious business, I mean length feature, of course you have to shoot on 35mm if you can.

Yea i just cant get into the dv thats why i cant take straight to video horror movies hay really ne straight to video movie any more (excluding full moon and troma moves) because 90 percent of them are shot on dv or cheap video where as in the 70s 80s and 90s they wee shot on film and dident look like a porno with better story.

ya im actually using a DVX100A this summer on my new western film. hoping for some really good results from that 24p. glad it worked out well for your WWII film. Tell me though, does the 24p truly move like film? i have yet to test it and and i want to hear some first hand experiences.


#49

Kinda off topic but, whatever happened to Deliveryman?

well this camera does shoot at 24p and 30p and 60. so you get lots frame rate options. So theoretically you can shoot at the same frame rate that film shoots, yet you MUST shoot it like film, and not like a normal MiniDV cam. STORYBOARD.



i know it was referred above, but definately check out http://dvxuser.com Jjp. lots good info on the DVX100A and its counterparts.

<LINK_TEXT text=“http://www.mediacollege.com/equipment/s … 000-02.jpg”>http://www.mediacollege.com/equipment/sony/images/dcrvx2000-02.jpg</LINK_TEXT> - my other camera complete with a .3X FISHEYE 170/2100 BAY MKII



the sony vx2000/2100 cameras are pretty similar to the cannon gl’s, both work well. but yeah the dvx 100 is a beast and gets the job done.

I am looking for a cheap camera to buy. I am not going to be making any big movies or anything, I just want to get something for experimentation. I want to lerarn the basics and have some fun with it and see what happens down the road. Any suggestions?
