  1. I am proud to announce that a documentary film from my country Macedonia was nominated in the new documentary category for the 34th ASC Awards: Two directors - Tamara Kotevska and Ljubomir Stefanov. Two cinematographers - Fejmi Daut and Samir Ljuma. 400 hours of material, approximately 100 shooting days, during three years of the production. Shot mainly on Nikon DSLRs. I was pleasantly surprised for its Rotten Tomatoes rating of 99%. Nice article on No Film School about the shooting of the film: 'Honeyland': Shooting By Candlelight and Oil Lamp Like a
  2. Hi guys, im new here, and i'd like some advice. I own a Canon 6d + 24-105mm, and i'm going to shoot a music video for a hip hop/trap artist. I've only shot a hardcore punk music video, and it was very fast paced and with several cuts. This time it seems to be different. Upon searching references, such as Post Malone, Travis Scott, etc, most, if not all videos rely heavily on slow motion scenes. Even the song the artist sent me is much calmer and sort of romatic than the others. But since the 6d can't shoot faster than 30fps at 1080p (if can with magic lantern, but the tests i made d
  3. Hi, I'm wondering, what type of shoulder rig do you use with your Sony a7 (or a something).. I'm always wondering if I would be better just shooting handheld, since it figure out a nice setup with my sony a7, for a shoulder rig. Thanks !
  4. Shooting on Cannon 7D, 24 fps, 50th shutter speed. The scene is the subject lit only by a pulsating strobe light. What is the easiest/ most affordable solution to sync the strobe with camera and avoid flicker, banding etc.? If possible, I'd like to have various speeds of the strobe for dramatic build. Any recommendation on brand/type of strobe? Will be using house power. Shoot is in Los Angeles. Thanks!
  5. The 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?
  6. I did my first attempt at directing a music video for an english songwriter in France. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=vL-DjKGCmEY I shot with a Canon 600D in the forest and mostly shot everything at 50fps to do some slow motion since I thought it would go right with the song. Also played the song at a high speed so that in postproduction the singer would be singing at the right tempo but with everything else in slow motion. Besides the shots from the story, I made my guy sing in a close up, in a mid shot from below, and also filmed the guitar in a close up
  7. Would someone please share tips on working with Magic Bullet Looks? I usually start with my primary color-correction—balancing my Luma scopes, RGB parade and vectorscope in Final Cut Pro X—but would like to grade in Magic Bullet Looks. Does it make sense to do my primary CC *at all* beforehand if I know I’m going to use Magic Bullet Looks for grading afterward? Some people say, when using MBL, you should wait to dial in your scopes as the last step. Thanks for your thoughts!
  8. Hello everybody ! I wrote a table comparing most of our favorite cameras and their technical specifications (Sensor info, recording info, weight, Mount, Power Consumption, Price ...). I was bored searching in the manuals and documentations, so this should make it a bit easier ! DIGITAL CAMERA COMPARISON Next time, I'd like to make it dynamic with an auto ranking when we click on a particular category. Cheers, Romain

  10. Hello- I am shooting a film and I planned to use the Sony A7s and these TV simulation LED flickering lights. But the lights cause banding and video flicker. Is there a way to get a "clear scan" on the A7S camera? Thanks!

  11. Hello- I am opening this question up to the pros because I am shooting a film with the Sony A7s and I planned to use the these TV simulation LED flickering lights. But the lights cause banding and video flicker. Is there a way to get a "clear scan" on the A7S camera? or a work around with the Shutter to get a clear or clearer image? Thanks!

  12. Hey there. In my day job I regularly shoot from gimbal stabilizers and aerial rigs using dslr and mirrorless cameras and lenses. Given that I do not often have access to a wireless follow focus, I have to improvise and work with hyperfocal distances and such. The one piece of information that would be really usefull to me when planning shoots where we will be hiring in this sort of gear never seems to be available in any review or spec sheet. That is the distance beyond which the lens has infinite focus. I can usually take a rough guess with fixed primes, but with compact zooms i
  13. hello guys! I might be shooting my first low budget feature film as DOP, I'm so excited about it, I won't get paid but the expenses, but I think it's alright as I finally get the chance to work on a first feature. The director owns a Nikon D7200 and wants to use it for the shooting, and I can't make him change his mind. It shoots 4:2:0 8bit internally, so I suggested him to work with an external recorder like the Atomos Ninja 2 to record ProRes and 4:2:0. My question is if anyone has some experience with this camera, I'd love to hear, I believe you can always learn so much from

  15. Sometimes when you shoot you want to underexpose a scene. The problem with Dslr is the great amount of noise in the shadows when exposure is not perfect, and other little problems. What's your workflow with this? Thanks to all that answer...
  16. My first ever short film just released, my first time being a cinematographer. Shot on a single Canon 550D (T2i) DSLR with most shots using a Canon 50mm f1.8 lens at f5.6 and some wide shots using the Canon 18-55mm f3.5 at f5.6. Lighting wise, I used 3 800 watt tungsten halogen red heads and 1 5600k LED on some medium-close up shots. I cut out shapes to use as cookies and shape the light with some flags. It was a zero budget film, all locations were due to good contacts in the local area. I'm no expert, never went to film school or anything, I just need some opinions from the masters. The crit
  17. Episode 9 of the Indie Film Academy Podcast, I'm talking with Caleb Pike about the best cameras available for indie filmmakers. http://www.indiefilmacademy.com/ifa-9-caleb-pike-dslr-video-shooter/
  18. I'm thinking about buying a camera at the end of the year. I've been assessing what I can afford and what's available. So far, I've narrowed it down to either the Panasonic GH4 or the Sony A7s. I like the GH4's native ability to shoot 4k but I'm concerned about the 4/3" sensor size. I'm impressed with the Sony A7s' shooting capability especially in low light but disappointed that shooting 4k requires an expensive peripheral. I'd appreciate any advice, opinions and first hand intel anyone can give me. If there's another camera system that anyone would recommend, by all means. Mind you I can
  19. In this review of the Kamerar QV-1 LCD Viewfinder, the reviewer comments on the strong magnet holding the finder to the mounting bracket and demonstrating it by holding the DSLR downwards on the loupe only - LINK. I wonder, is that magnet somehow affecting the LCD screen? Temporarily or maybe over time causing some damage? Didn't some users of s35 adapters for video cameras (remember those? :) ) attach magnet on screen or the viewfinder to un-flip the image? Best Igor
  20. Hello everyone, We are conducting a study on ILCs (Interchangeable Lens Cameras) In New York and are looking for people to participate. Currently we need some cinematographers who use DSLR and/or CSC cameras. We especially need CSC users. If you have friends that could also participate please share this information. It will be a 2 hour Focus Group Discussion and if you take part we will compensate your time by $150. A focus group discussion is where we invite a group of people to talk about their experiences with a certain product, in this case ILCs. We would like to speak to you to find o
  21. Looking for advice on how to program controlled focus and zoom on a Canon 70D, though open to suggestions on other DSLRs and HD cameras. I want to program the camera to zoom in from a wide shot to a close up very slowly for 15 mins, stay on the close up for a few minutes then zoom back to the wide shot again in 15 mins, remaining always in focus. This is not for a time-lapse, it will be a continuous shot. Is it possible to do this with a DSLR? What kind of equipment would I need? Would love to hear from someone who has done something like this!
  22. Yo guys, could you tell me what you think? These were shot with no budget - The Hymnal - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=APQFgRIX3yM Shot with Canon 60d, basic photo lights + diff & neg Only Child - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F1IJka9piWk&feature=youtu.be Shot with CAnon60d, tungsten builders lights + small LED + diff + neg Obviously they're not perfect, but I shot them to get something made :) I was going for Eraserhead btw :)
  23. I'll be shooting soon a short film (as DP), and I only have a small amount of choices in term of which camera I can use. I was wondering if anyone has personal experience to share as for how these cameras work in a low key light system, which of these cameras render the black at the best, with which one we can play with sort of gamma settings so as we can get a good latitude? I also have the opportunity to work with Panasonic AF101, but I don't like codec so much beside the fact it crashes the highlights very quickly and can't go beyond 2 stops 2 stops and a half in the blacks, so I was
  24. I've became really passionate with Cinema in the past 3 years, and before that I was already passionate about photography, for about 6/7 years now. And so I've decided that I'd like to experiment on this journey of filmmaking since it's something I quite enjoy doing and am currently studying. There's a lot of independet DSLR filmmakers now which is amazing. And so I've decided to buy a new camera! From my previous experience with photography, I'm more of a Canon fan since I first started with the classic Canon AE-1. I don't really have a big budget, but I'd like to invest in somethin
  25. for sale or trade is my lovely Century Optics 16:9 adapter. It is a front mount 1.33x squeeze anamorphot that is quite sharp. It has a 58mm rear thread which make is useful with dslrs and cameras like the blackmagic cinema camera for shooting true 2.35 cinema-scope image when use with a 16:9 sensor. No cropping, use the entire sensor for maximum resolution. It also comes with a clamp on sun shade that has a series 9 filter mount in the front. Also included are six diopters for shooting close ups. With this adapter, you loose some of the minimum focus you previously had, so these diopters get t
