Do you realize people go through years of academical studies or expensive courses at private universities to learn all that? It's certainly not something you're going to master by watching a few Youtube videos ... If you want to seriously get into film making, I would suggest you take a course. Not necessarily a full blown film studies degree, but you could ...

Is this an impression you have or based on statistics you read? My impression is the opposite: projects shot on film have become so noteworthy they get some press coverage for the fact alone they are shot on film. Then you have things like "interstellar" where the hype was about the 70mm or tarantino who says movies on digital are not sexy. What I heard is ...

What you're seeing is an inherent problem with sensors that use "rolling shutter". There are tradeoffs in sensor technology among speed, sensitivity, and size, and using a sequential line readout with continuous exposure is a popular choice that's a good compromise for many situations. Unfortunately yours isn't one of those. What you need is what's known as ...

This question is pretty obsolete by now. The new SCARLET-W cameras support 5K WS (2.4:1) video at 60 fps, 4K WS at 150 fps, and 2K WS at 300 fps. Matching field of view is a simple matter of mathematics, not magic. If you want to match a 50mm lens on a 6K RED camera using a 3K crop, a 25mm lens will do well. And the price of the SCARLET-W is now below ...

The biggest reason for shooting on film is because...it looks like film. 20 years ago, Red Hat founder Bob Young told a story about branding that bears on this question. He explained that if you offer somebody who has never tasted Ketchup before two samples, one being the most popular brand in America (which enjoys > 80% market share) and the other being ...

By far the biggest benefit is archival. We know how to store film and retrieve the images for at least 100 years. That's not the case with digital film making. Assuming you are able to get the bits off the disk (damn where's my syquest drive), and you can read the file format (will anyone know what a jpeg is in 100 years), you still have no idea how the ...

There's really two main types of film heads; pan/tilt heads and ball heads. There are a lot of other features you can get in tripods, for example, fluid heads. A fluid head is definitely something you'll want for video if you can afford one. They provide much smoother panning and tilting motion while operating the tripod. Geared heads allow for much more ...
