You can’t miss the excitement: we’re entering a new, low-cost/high-value shooting era where top still cameras from Canon, Nikon and others take the spotlight. Word from NAB 2010 is that Sony, Panasonic and who knows who else will be coming out with 35mm sized, single sensor video cameras by next year’s show to meet the demand—and fight off the competition.
If you haven’t read it yet, you might want to check out Creative COW Magazine Contributing Editor Marco Solorio’s article HDSLRs for Video: Beyond the Hype in the most recent issue of Creative COW’s print mag.
Marco does get a little over heated at times (he’s taking us “inside the real world of production with paying clients” by jiminy!), but there is still a good amount of useful info here—including straight talk on the sorts of workarounds you face shooting with something designed as a still camera, not a moving image camera.
(Warning: Marco does use the term “mind boggling” in the second paragraph, a term that should have been retired some time ago for the sake of the sanity of both users and public. C’mon Marco….)
