The best results I've achieved were using a light grey cyc or background instead of actual white. They bring the exposure up to where it looks white but you don't have to use nearly as much light on the subject to make them expose properly. We just used kino's with diffusion on the cyc and kino's with less diffusion on the subject with a solid backlight. The ...

"If I set it to 1/25 (shutter speed) does that mean absolute maximum (or lowest setting)?" Yes, if it was a non-digital video camera. This rule applied to the old non-digital (film) video cameras where you cannot set shutter speed lower than the frame rate. Meaning that one celluloid was exposed for the full 1/25th of a second. Assuming 25fps. For digital ...

When I was first looking for a good portable camera, the LX100 was on the top of the list. When looking at research, the LX100 provides great IQ (at 4k) in a good compact device for the price. If you have not already looked at these sites, I would suggest looking up TheCameraStore review on YouTube, CameraLabs, Dpreview, and EOSHD. LX100 does also have ...

Don't shoot handheld and don't use a phone. Baring that, use stabilization such as a steadicam or steadicam jr (if using a tripod really isn't an option), use lots of well controlled lighting (phone cameras suck at low light) and plan your shots out very carefully. Use external audio recording rather than the phone's built in mic and do a lot of grading ...

The big issue when shooting with phones is not the resolution, it's the dynamic range. Your videos will have low contrast and the colors won't be very vivid. Although I've never seen reviews of the Nokia 808, I imagine it also suffers from noise in low light conditions. To fix the issues with contrast and color, run your footage through a color correction ...

getting a steadi-cam for the mobile phone can make a difference, they are not that expensive from the likes of eBay or Amazon and can take the hand shake out. if there is something particular that you are trying to achieve, maybe you could explain it a bit more with maybe a few images or example of what your getting and what you want

I don't know this model, but in general video cameras don't use a physical shutter, but an electronic one. The aperture is always open and 'shuttering' means limiting the exposure time through blanking. So a setting less that the frame rate is effectively 'off'. As for 'spilling the same info onto several frames', that's only true if there's no motion in ...

I have another idea, based on a cliff-jumping technique (which I can't remember the name of). 1) Decide on a suitably tall building that has roof access. 2) Get a rope that is a meter shorter than the building is tall. 3) Build a sturdy case for the iPhone, attached to one end of the rope. The case only needs to have one small hole for the camera lens. ...

A dad and his young son sent an iPhone to space, had it fall back to earth and got it back safely. You could have a look at their rig for inspiration (basically a polystyrene box and a parachute).
