Video: Sony Footage

Here is a promo video I made for work. It shows off footage I captured with our new camera, Sony XDCAM EX. There are a few clips in the video that were shot with our older Panasonic DVCPRO HD camera. The Panasonic footage looks like I scaled it up but in fact its just not as clear as the Sony.

I found that it did great in low light without adding a lot of grain. The room I filmed in is always very dark. (Thanks lighting guys.) Also the footage was great to color grade in After Effects. Its a great camera to use when you have to make a video fast. I shot and created this in four hours.

Even though I own the Canon 7D HDSLR, I don’t use it sometimes because of deadline purposes. The Canon HDSLR series are still the best cameras to shoot video with (in my opinion). But its not the pick up and shoot kinda camera.

The evolution of the video camera is getting better and better. Can’t wait to pick one up that looks as good as a HDSLR.

      1. We actually bought the camera from another ministry we are connected with. Last year I had did some research on some cameras and this Sony happen to be one of my picks. As for the codec, Im not sure about. Im not able to transfer the footage from the camera through FCP, but instead I had to install the XDCAM software. It actually transfers really fast.
