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.

My first 7D photo

May 3, 2010 I received the package I have been waiting for. I couldn’t wait to take a photo. So, I put in the battery and memory card in my new camera and snapped! I melted the first time I saw it. I am in love.
At first I was afraid of this camera. I was afraid of having no more excuses. But a good friend of mine helped me change my perspective. He told me “Now it’s 100% creative freedom and potential!”
I’m no longer afraid of myself.
