The release of full frame cameras like ARRI's LF, RED’s Monstro, Canon’s C700 and Sony’s VENICE has made it clear that the future of cinema is headed toward larger sensor sizes. Of course, we have been shooting full frame video ever since the Canon 5D Mark II. But it’s only recently that high-end cinema camera manufacturers have brought larger sensor cameras to the market.
Do you know how to light when shooting at up to 80,000 frames per second?Learn from Matt Drake and his DP Matt Novello, the team behind Bullet Theory Films. They recently shot a commercial for Sinter Fire Bullets’ frangible ammo. The team wanted to avoid using CGI effects, so they chose to shoot with the Phantom v711 at extremely high frame rates (up to 80,000 fps) to capture the live bullets.
If you're like me, there's something to be said for using and trusting a great monitor. You know the kind of monitor what I am talking about. That one monitor you know is always right on the mark. That one monitor that reveals everything that you need to see in order to frame a great shot or to correct a not so great shot.
I usually like to start most of our discussions with lots of questions. But this time, I only have one question. What is an ARRI Large-Format Camera System? I had to know. Featuring a sensor slightly bigger than full frame, ALEXA LF records native 4K with ARRI’s best overall image quality.
"Due to the bigger image circle the Compact Zoom CZ.2 15-30 has no distortion or vignetting in the corners on Super 35 sensors (Sweet Spot Effect). Due to the full frame coverage, all members of the Compact Zoom lens family cover the RED Dragon senor at 6K. There is no other competitor cine-style lens that can do the same at this point." Learn what makes this lens one of a kind, along with its show reel & more.
by Carl Mrozek This is the 19th consecutive year I’ve attended NAB in quest of the ideal digital video camera, and ideally one that is somewhat affordable. Of course one man’s ideal is another’s disappointment, and likewise with affordable. However, at the largest production media trade show in the world, NAB 2015, there were more than a few cameras that nearly fit my criteria. This included wide dynamic range, a wide range of frame rates, more than one robust recording codec, smart design and of course great imaging.
HBO Max’s Legendary isn’t the first reality competition series to shine a light on a fascinating slice of LGBTQ+ culture, but series director Rik Reinholdtsen brought a showstopping cinematic look to the Ballroom competition show’s first season that is unlike anything you've ever seen before. Reinholdtsen (Cooked with Cannabis, Inside the Actor’s Studio, Chelsea) shot with the Canon EOS C700 Full-Frame Cinema Camera, EOS C500 Mark II, and Sumire Prime Lenses to create a larger-than-life look that matched the majesty of the Ballroom performances, which blend dance, performance art and fashion. Reinholdtsen used the same gear to shoot in the field for the documentary portions of the show, helping him achieve a cohesive look. We spoke exclusively to Reinholdtsen about his experience on Legendary, why Canon was the right choice for this project, and what inspired the show’s aesthetic.
by Bradford HillThe Canon XA25 Pro HD Camcorder is a compact 1/2" inch CMOS Sensor Camera with a lot of great and unexpected stand-out features. To start, its full auto & manual modes, its two XLR inputs, and an HDSDI slot packaged with the ability to shoot 1920x1080 at 59.94p are notable. While traveling on shoots, I was impressed with the capability to be able to record 1080p at 60fps within a moment’s notice. This frame rate is a new feature to the Canon line of cameras, which gives this camera a competitive edge. It is also easy to manage when set to auto mode, which comes in handy if a novice needs to use the camera on a small crew shoot, or to simply capture any ‘run-and-gun’ footage.
Looking down over the city from up on the Corcovado or Sugarloaf Mountain, the city and its topography start to make sense. Forested mountains frame the city, just a few blocks back from its most famous beaches. Wedged in between is the upmarket Zona Sul (“South Zone”), spreading from Botafogo in Guanabara Bay, round to Copacabana, west to the chic beaches of Ipanema and Leblon, and up the steep hillsides, where expensive condominiums and favelas sit side by side. Heading north, around the shores of the bay and inland lies the city center and the sprawling northern suburbs. And way out west, along the coast, is Barra da Tijuca, with its Miami-like strip malls, long beaches, and the Olympic Park.
