2014 was a big year for camera releases, especially in the DSLR/DSLM world. The Lumix GH4 and Sony A7S largely stole the spotlight, with both cameras offering incredible image quality, 4K capabilities, and loads of other great video features that got filmmakers everywhere excited… But one camera that hasn’t had as much buzz as we’ve seen […]Read more →
As many of you know, I am someone that is particularly obsessed with the ‘film look’. Much of my directorial work is narrative based, and as such I am naturally drawn to a more cinematic look as it is often conducive to the dramatic stories that I like to tell. And although I am far […]Read more →
So many younger cinematographers today have come up during the DSLR revolution, and as a result have never used lenses that feature T-Stop markings. DSLR lenses are of course intended for stills photography first and foremost, and the standard measurement of aperture in photography has always been an F-Stop. In film however, aperture is measured in T-Stops which […]Read more →
I apologize for the last of posts recently, as the last couple of weeks have been very hectic! I just wrapped up production on a couple of commercial/corporate spots, directed three music videos and ran my Digital Cinema Bootcamp this past weekend – amongst other things. I have some really great material that I’m going […]Read more →
My very first video camera ever (in the early 2000s) was a 3ccd Sony TRV900 – which at the time was an awesome miniDV cam. Somehow though, it became the first and last Sony camera that I’ve ever owned as I eventually moved onto Panasonic’s lineup, and later came around to own cameras by nearly every other major brand.

Although the GH4 has been widely available for some time now, there is still no consensus on what combination of picture profiles/settings is best for achieving maximum image quality. Some DPs have had luck using very drastic setting combinations, but as far as my experience goes pushing the settings too far can result in some […]Read more →
The Canon C100 is one of my favorite run and gun cameras and I shoot with it more than any other camera that I own – it just works so well right out of the box. As you might imagine, being a C100 owner I was very eager to see what Canon had in store with the […]Read more →
One of the biggest reasons that high end cinema cameras are so preferable to shoot on over DSLRs or other prosumer cameras, is because of the flexibility that they have in post. Cameras like the Arri Alexa, Sony F55, and RED Epic/Dragon all feature raw recording to allow for maximum creative freedom when color grading. Ironically […]Read more →
One of the biggest reasons that filmmakers are falling in love with the GH4 is because of it’s amazing ability to shoot at high frame rates internally. No other DSLR/DSLM has the ability to over crank the way the GH4 can, which offers variable frame rates at up to 96 frames per second. This is pretty astounding, […]Read more →
Many cinematographers feel that the camera they shoot on is the least important element when it comes to capturing a beautiful image since lighting, lenses, color grading, and other factors often play a more important role. I myself fall into this camp for the most part, and those of you that are frequent visitors of the site likely […]Read more →
