So i have a question for all the experts here. Im in my final year of film school, and the film program only uses Panasonic HMC 150'S. In fact, i won't say the film school, but lets just say its one of the top ten in the country, and the film equipment is so limited and outdated, its unbelievable. You join film school, and they don't even teach you about lenses, let alone teach you practical use of them. In any case, i could go on forever, but that's not why im writing today.
Here we go. So, were using the HMC-150's, HD cameras, Digital hardrive, a good camera with good specs on paper. However, as i'm watching more and more of peoples work on youtube, i.e. music videos, short films, i noticed something.
PEOPLE WHO SHOOT WITH DSLR'S, THE QUALITY OF THE VIDEO LOOKS SO GOOD, IT LOOKS CLEAN, THE COLORS ARE BOLDER, THE DEPTH OF FIELD IS BETTER, THE CONTRAST IS STRONGER. AT THIS POINT, I CAN TELL WHETHER IM WATCHING A VIDEO SHOT ON A DSLR OR PRO-CONSUMER VIDEO CAMERA. WHEN I SHOOT WITH MY HMC 150, THE QUALITY ALWAYS LOOKS SUB PAR, EVEN WITH PROFESSIONAL LIGHTING, EVEN AT 1080P. IT JUST LOOKS LIKE VIDEO. I HOPE THAT MAKES SENSE.
CAN SOMEBODY TELL ME IM NOT CRAZY, AND IF THERE'S A REASON FOR THIS? IS IT THE CHIPS IN THE DSLR'S? IS IT BECAUSE IT HAS BETTER LENSES, CMOS CHIPS? I CANT FIGURE IT OUT. I ONLY WISH MY FILM SCHOOL WOULD PURCHASE DSLR'S, BUT WHEN I TRIED CONVINCING THEM WE NEED THEM, AND THERE IS A DIFFERENCE IN QUALITY, THEY DIDN'T SEEM TO BE THRILLED HEARING THAT.
HELP ME OUT FELLOW LUMINOUS LANDSCAPE FRIENDS....WHATS THE DEAL?
