Can the same paraphernalia for DSLRs be used for JVC's LS300?
Jack Foreman posted a topic in JVC HDThe main up-side to the DSLR is that it is small & light & so any paraphernalia (steady cam, jib, slider etc.) designed for DSLRs will be a lot cheaper than for bigger heavier camcorders. The JVC GY-LS300 seems like a pretty small, light camcorder. Is it small & light enough for cheap equipment usually reserved for DSLRs?
Using old Camcorders for Still Images
William Wright posted a topic in General DiscussionHi all, Just posting this here having previously received some invaluable insight on diffusion filters from the forum before. Please forgive me if this request is inappropriate for general discussion, I will post in a different section if that's more suitable. I am primarily a photographer, but wanted to do an image series based on stills from old (but not necessarily ancient) Camcorder footage. I was looking for possible second hand equiptment options, and came across the Sony Digital 8 cameras, and noticed they have an option for 'stills' - seemingly to take single shot photos as opposed to continuos filmed footage. Being of the digital camera era I have a lot of gaps in knowledge of analogue filming specifics, particularly this sort of technology that seems to be a bridge between the analogue and film eras, so I am curious - do these 'still' images have the sort of analogue softness typical to camcorder filmed footage (examples of I guess what I mean below, although I am sure it would be possible to get slightly better clarity than seen in these), and am I along the right lines looking at Sony d8 cameras etc, or are does this 'still' functionality simply very primitive digital photos like you might have got from a mobile phone a few years back, and is not directly relateable to the continuos filmed look produced of the cameras? The use of tapes etc in these cameras has me very confused! Any help very gratefully received!
Best vintage camcorder for THAT 80s, grainy VHS look?
Jeromy Darling posted a topic in SDHey guys! I'm exploring the lofi side of film starting with Super8 (Pro8mm is currently modding my Canon 1014XLS). I'm also trying to find a RELIABLE, vintage VHS camcorder. I was thinking about the JVC GR-C7 but heard that parts are impossible to find. I'm curious if anyone knows a. Someone willing/able to work on these models? or b. A camera with that "look" but that might be easier to maintain long term? And no, I'm not going to use filters to recreate the look. Just wanted a fun, quick way to shoot real VHS film for a few niche videos I'm working on. Thanks!
I have a clean, well maintained, ready to shoot Sony PMW-EX3 Pro HD camera for sale with a few extras. It's an excellent run and gun camera that is inexpensive to operate. The Sony pop on batteries are inexpensive, light and efficient compared to bricks. I've used inexpensive fast SD cards with the included SxS to SD card adapters and they work great. A 16GB card holds about 50 min. at full 1080p and costs only $17 at B&H. You can use Nikon, or other lenses, with a Nikon to Sony mount adapter, or use the included Sony power zoom which is plenty good to get work done. I am the sole owner/operator. I've never rented it, nor let anyone else touch or even breathe on it. :) $2800 See photos and more details at http://www.prairiepictures.com/gear.html Thanks! Martin
Fake Tube Camera Video
Marty Hamrick posted a topic in Visual Effects CinematographyI'm looking to take some video shot in the 90's on a VHS camcorder of the era and I want to make it look like it was shot on one of the first single tube home video camera/VHS deck combos, circa 1978-80.
I have a canon 1014 xls and I heard it's a really nice camcorder and I want to sell it, I know nothing about cameras but I do know it's worth a few quid, is there anyone interested or know the best place to sell (not ebay) it's excellent condition although I do not have the boom mike
Camcorder VS DSLR for youtube
Sarah Nagel posted a topic in Students and New FilmmakersHi there, I would really appreciate some advice! I have a youtube channel, and I currently shoot my videos with a Canon VIXIA HF R200. It does the job, however I definitely need an upgrade. The battery life sucks, the exposure is crazy and always needs to be adjusted, and the colouring is sometimes weird. I have been trying to figure out what camera other youtubers use, and notice a lot of them use Canon DSLR's such as the T3i. I am wondering if I would be better off getting a camcorder, or a DSLR? I am open to all brands, however I was looking at the VIVIXA HF G30 for camcorders, or maybe a canon t4i or canon 60D? I want something that's easy to use, I would like it to have autofocus, and I want a nice bright image quality, I like to have glowing skin in my videos and have everything bright and happy looking. I like the idea of the ease of a camcorder, however I feel I might have more creative control with a DSLR + it would double as a camera :) my price range is up to $2000 my youtube channel is www.youtube.com/holistichabits if you would like to see the video quality right now and make a judgment call on what needs to be fixed. Any advice would help. Any suggestions?? Thank you so much for taking the time to read and/or reply :) -Sarah
Keystone Capri K-26, K-30
Chase Jenks posted a topic in Super-8Ok, so I have been searching all over the net and there tends to be little information about these cameras. If anyone has any information it would be appreciated. I know Keystone has long since gone bankrupt and so information on their products have become scarce. Also, a manual or technical information would be appreciated to. I don't mean to inconvenience anyone so, i appreciate any help offered. I have a Keystone Capri K-30 camera, and it is in practically top notch shape, it seems to have a similar build to The K-26 model minus the other 2 additional lenses...so idk if that helps or is reliable. but, im trying to learn about this camera and what it can do and what are its limitations. and what i can do with it. 2nd im trying to find out how to switch out the battery, and where the battery compartment even is. cause i assume it runs on a battery.. and are their any batteries made nowadays or in production that will work for this camera. also im trying to see if i can find information on how to load film into this camera, and how to use this camera. I know it uses 8mm film and Super 8 film (they may or may not be the same thing im not sure sadly), and you have to crank the lever., i just need to know the loading and operation procedures. Also does anyone still produce 8mm film? does anyone have any websites to suppliers of such film. What types of 8mm film are their, i know there is probably black and white film, and color film or im guessing black and white and color film exist....but, is film speed (ISO) a factor here? that may be a stupid question, i mean i assume so. do these have a set shutter speed or a changeable shutter speed? Second is developing 8mm film similar to developing 35mm, medium format, or large format films like for still cameras like you would do in a photography class?
