What is the difference between a traditional digital camcorder that looks like actual video made for multi cam productions like soap operas, & camcorders like Arri Alexa that look as much like film as digital technology can manage? Is it the frame rate? Depth of field? Shutter speed? Resolution? Something ridiculously complicated? What is it about these cameras that makes the footage look that different from one another? Additionally, what is the official wordage to differentiate between these 2 types of digital camera? The film-mimicking one has a large possibility of names (like ‘film-style digital motion picture camcorder’), but what about the one that produces traditional video footage?
I can find tons of information on the kinds of cameras I dislike (film-style digital cameras) but none on the kind of cameras I do like. I would like to know what the names are of the types of cameras that have the traditional video look, like the news, Eastenders & other soap operas (Professional cameras used on British television). I do not care about any digital cameras that are trying to look like film. Is there a 1 word difference between these types & the types trying their best to look like film? This is probably the opposite of what people usually ask. They usually want to steer as clear as they can from the video look, but I'm the opposite. I dislike the film-look, always have.
