Eternally suffering editionAll video related questions and discussion is intended for this thread. Here we discuss techniques, gear and anything else related to capturing video footage. Please don't pretend to be an expert if you don't know what you're talking about. Kindly leave your ego at the door.Posting short films/scripts or other work you've done is encouraged.We tend to use and recommend DSLRs/mirrorless cameras because they provide phenomenal picture quality for their price, have large sensors (ie the same size used in high-end cinema cameras and higher) and have interchangeable lenses.In contrast, consumer camcorders often have much smaller sensors and a fixed lens.>STICKY -https://textbin.net/2u146abxla>Helpful guide, additional books and more in-depth FAQs - https://web.archive.org/web/20200926115310/https://pastebin.com/kG0gRmTZ>NO ONE CARES WHAT AN EXPERT YOU THINK YOU ARE. IF YOU’RE ASKING BASIC-AS-SHIT QUESTIONS, YOU CAN’T BE ALL THAT GREAT. SEE ABOVEPrevious thread >>4136920Quick FAQS>what’s the best camera available on a “budget”?The blackmagic pocket cinema camera 4k>>what’s a good beginner video camera?Anything that works, shoots at least 1080p and preferably has interchangeable lenses. Any recommendation beyond that will cause arguments so read the fucking sticky if that isn't satisfactory.>Can I use a zoom lens for video?Yes>Do I need cine lenses?No>Do I need 4k?No. It will make your footage look sharper if it’s in focus, and it gives you breathing room in post. But 1080p is still absolutely fine>Can someone tell me if my video is any good?Yes, but be prepared to receive harsh criticism. If you're going to waste 5 minutes of our time with a shitty out-of-focus montage of nothing then we'll tell you that it's crap
>>4151817>>4151832answer my questions goddammit>>4152451>100mbps for a 1080p 8bit 4:2:0 h264 file shot with 3:1 pixel binningyou wouldn't see a big improvement, magic lantern is irrelevant in 2023, as cool as it used to beget a gh4 or gh5
>>4152550>shot with 3:1 pixel binningIt's actually worse, it's line skipping. Pixel binning is on the 5D3.Also the BMPC sounds pretty godly with its super 35 sensor and EF mount. I wonder if you can use a magic booster like you can with the BMPCC6K
>>4152550I'm not reading all that.Look, if you want a cheap camera that's decent (and can't use your phone for whatever reason), get a panasonic gh4, a canon m (2.5k raw with magic lantern) or just read the fucking sticky.There's no magic answer. You have to accept that there are pros and cons with every camera set up. Personally, I'd say at a certain point, it becomes pointless to buy any camera for less than ~1200 bucks but you do you.
>>4152551>I wonder if you can use a magic booster like you can with the BMPCC6KI'll answer it myself: you can but it sucks. 1.3 crop isn't that much better than 1.7.
Near where I live they are a lot of cheap barns. How much would it cost to buy one of the barns and turn the barn into a sound stage or an editing room. Would it be worth it to do this or is their a better way to get a proper place to make Indy films?
>>4152567>How much would it cost to buy one of the barnsHow the fuck would we know that? You're the one saying they're cheap>turn the barn into a sound stage or an editing roomWell figure out basic logistics. You to install a power supply so get in touch with the power company to see how much that would cost along with what energy costs are.Depending on where you are, you'll also potentially need aircon or heating (or both) on an industrial scale since barns are very large so hard to temperature control.And then you need to install toilets, so you need to get basic plumbing in there.Then you need at least one desk. And then, finally, you need to supply all the equipment depending on what you actually want to do.With experience, you can almost definitely make an entire feature for less than this would all cost.>is their a better way to get a proper place to make Indy films?One of the first challenges is figuring this out to be honest. But if you/your parents own land then it would probably be cheaper to buy/build a couple of sheds yourself since then all the essential stuff is already installed into the property and you potentially don't even need to put it in the shed (like using extension cables for power).Personally I just look for rooms to rent for short periods of time. Look at local theatres, churches, community halls etc. They normally don't charge much (like 20/hour)
>>4152586I meant how much would it cost to turn a barn into a movie studio. I know how much the barn costs. I meant the cost of chroma green paint and power stuff and other things I’d need to make the barn into a studio.
>>4152592You'd be using backdrops not paint, helps with acoustics even
5dm2 fag from last thread here, thanks for talking me out of it.i'm getting an A7S now I'm pretty sure.better than a GH4 for my usecase(can use full frame lenses natively, both don't have IBIS, both can shoot 60fps, sony is way better in low light)
>>4152551What is magic booster for the 6k
>>4152720A sneed booster for full frame lenses
I need to shoot an industrial machine in a workshop bathed in light at around 3000K, my only light is an Amaran at 5600K and I would like to use it to fill some shadows.What should my white balance be? It looks weird to have just a white spot of light in all that orange.
>>4152732Gel the light brah
>>4152720It's a focal reducer that goes inside the EF mount. You don't see it from outside but it's there, changing your crop factor from 1.7 to 1.3 or something.
hybrid fags deserve the rope
Real talk, workflow memes aside why would I prefer a BMPC4K over a 5D3 and a 7D that cost less together and allow for more variety?Just found out the sensor that Blackmagic markets as super 35 on the BMPC4K is actually 21.12 x 11.88mm. It's a center 16:9 crop that is even smaller than the academy standard 35mm. It's not even equivalent to 3-perf super 35, too narrow.
>>4152783If you do heavy color grading and need raw you’d want a blackmagic.
>>41527834k and better codec.The image you'll get out of the bmp is far far superior to what you'll get from the 5d3 or 7d (unless you use magiclantern in which case you can get a superb picture out of the 5d3 too, but it's kind of impractical and a pain to use)
>>4152786>>4152787Yeah I meant magic lantern with both, and I meant 70D not 7Dhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5C5o8JIi9EQI guess the advantage of the Blackmagic is just the workflow
>>4152788Unless they've changed it, ml raw means you're recording without sound. And there's frequent issues since it's a janky hack including things like overheating.7 years ago it was impressive because prosumer cameras were shit. Today it's not worth it (in my mind)
>>4152783>>4152788the ML workflow is shit, my experience with a 5d3 has been terrible, aside from the inconvenience of not being able to use the display when you're recording at higher resolutions you'll need the fastest CF cards you can buy to record continuously which will cost stupid amounts of money, around $50 for a reliable 32GB card, you'll have overheating issues and reliability issues, with recording sometimes stopping for no apparent reason, and a comical rolling shutternotice how even the longest cut in the video you posted doesn't reach 10 seconds and the camera is either still or panning very very slowlya second hand 5d3 will also cost as much as a second hand Gh4 with v-log installed, it's a terrible idea to buy one for video, ML on the 5d3 is a cool toy but nothing more than that; I can't say how it is on other cameras but I can't imagine many of the issues being any less annoying
Is it worth investing in olpf rawlite filters for my blackmagic cameras. At over $300 a filter, I just wanted to know if it would make the iq I get from my blackmagic cameras so much better to make it worth getting the filters. Should I just get a filter for one camera, and leave the other camera unfiltered. I just wanted to know the pros and cons of using filters like that. What are the use cases for using such a filter, and what are the use cases for not using such a filter.
>>4152592Sounds like you have specifics in mind already. Here's what you do now:-Get a pen and paper-Write down what you need and how much it costs-Add it upThere's your budget.
>>4152806>notice how even the longest cut in the video you posted doesn't reach 10 seconds and the camera is either still or panning very very slowlyIt was an experimental mode to be fair>a second hand 5d3 will also cost as much as a second hand Gh4 with v-log installed, it's a terrible idea to buy one for video,the lenses though
>>4152819 he is clearly asking because he lacks the know how and wants to avoid overlooking something that would be obvious to someone in the biz
>>4152838This line of thinking is so fucking stupid.You don't learn by listening to some nepo hire xoomer retard who's relied on film school knowledge and studio-backed-budgets for everything he's ever done.If you want to do something, you fucking do it. And yeah, you'll make mistakes. That's how you learn. And you'll learn how to do things way more efficiently and cheaply than the "official" way
>>4152807 only if you're getting moire artifacts often, the filters soften the image to eliminate that
welp, ordered an A7. found one for £320 lol.olympus adapter and sd card on their way
>>4152553>what camera should I get for my specific and somewhat unusual needs?>I'm not reading all that, here's a few suggestions that will probably work in usual situationsinvaluable help as usual, thanks /p/
>>4152848>I'm too lazy to do my own research so here's an essay on my exact needs now someone figure out what's best for my specific needs"no"
>>4152846>sd card on their wayCheap or you can't walk to buy one?
>>41528712/3 of the price on amazon vs the local retail shop
>>4152872and when I say local retail shop they are the biggest tech retailer in the country that run their business by scamming old ladies out of their money on warranties they don't need so I have no problems ordering from amazon over them
>>4152845Thanks, anon! I will get one for one of my cameras and I will use the other camera without the filter. That way if moire is an issue I will use the camera with the filter and if I want a shaper image I will use the camera without the filter.
I just ordered a used “Schneider 4x5.65" True-Cut 680 IR Filter” off of GearFocus. I hope they have it in stock. I keep on trying to order that filter to use with a matte box /w my pocket cameras and sellers keep on canceling my order because they list items they don’t have on their web pages. I hope this seller has one. They say they have a used one. I need it badly. I hope I get it this time.
Hi /vid/, I'd like to get myself a beginner/intermediate camera, ~800€ max. that does full HD at 60fps and is compatible with Canon EF lenses.Also I'd want slowmo functionality, for filming cute jumping spiders jumping and such nonsense.I read through the (seemingly outdated) sticky and even made a table of 22 models, but can't seem to find what I want. There are just too many cameras to go through them all.Or maybe that fantasy camera doesn't exist at my price point? Please halp.
>>4152955I’m happy. The filter that I wanted and tracked down for about a year has finally been shipped out to me.
>>4152848Just buy a nikkon d3200
>>4153169The Nikon is a nice camera but I don’t think you can use EF lenses on a Nikon.
>>4153166Thanks for the suggestion, but it's too expensive and won't take EF lenses
Why do I perceive letterboxed content as more cinematic? The addition of black lines at the top and bottom makes even low DR, high fps video look more kino. What's the mental process behind this?
>>4153589Association.Audiences have been trained for decades to associate wider aspect ratios with cinematic films compared to tv shows, home movies and documentaries.It's the same reason why audiences associate high frame rates with looking cheap and uncinematic (despite it looking far superior)
>>4153591Wider aspect isn't so much of a thing for me. When I watch a video on youtube (not in fullscreen) that was edited to 21:9 aspect and features no letterboxing versus one that has the same aspect but has letterboxing as a result of trying to fit to 16:9, the former always appears more cinematic to me. The visual content still has same aspect but the letterboxing makes a difference in how my mind accepts it.
>>4153592>formerexcuse my ESL, I meant latter**
>>4153592I don't think you understand what "aspect ratio" means.(HINT: letterboxing on the top/bottom means that it's a wider aspect ratio and subconsciously makes it clear to the viewer that this is the case)
what would you charge a friend if he wanted you to do a 2-camera livestream at a 2-day convention? my friend said he'll pay for the hotel and food in addition to whatever rate seems fair.
How do you guys backup TB's of footage at the end of your shoot day?
>>4154561External harddrives for the raw files.I compress them into h264 as a backup that I keep locally or on a different hard drive.
>>4154561I use blackmagic cameras and I buy a new ssd for any important shoot. I shoot live events so I only shoot for one day at most.
>>4154561everything goes on my NAS loaded with a RAID array of 3TB HDDs
>>4154561two externals (copies) of any shoot that means money
got my a7s mk1, adapted my olympus 50mm to itloving lifevery shaky though, is it at all possible to do 50mm shooting on a non ibis camera handheld while walking? im trying the stabiliser on premiere and it looks awfulthanks!! this is so much fun, cant wait to get some time off from college to go shoot some stuff
>>4154596>using an untested SSD for any important shootngmi
I got in front of the camera to test a few new things today, though I still don't feel like this looks at all professionalwhat do you think is the aspect that needs improving the most?video sharpness, coloring, audio clarity, lighting... ?https://mega.nz/file/KR5zlSZB#sxGLz3k805oIV_d7c68Oy8DY7VfOz5MudJVfRxlpHbU
>>4154564>5>>4154596>>4154603>>4154629Thanks lads, I already have a NAS with two 4tb HDD's, I'll try and grab some externals before the shoot. Problem is i'll be in the middle of the Nevada desert so I'm kinda fucked if things go wrong so I'm trying to foolproof it
>>4154662I only shoot live events and I am part of a crew that is paid in alcohol. If my camera fails they understand. They have a bunch of alcoholic camera man filming the concert. They play a numbers game. They will get some footage they can use.
>>4154940>buying new SSDs when you're being paid in boozedoesn't add up, how much booze does an SSD pay for?
>>4154670it doesn't look horrible. if you want it to look like a high key commercial presentation the light looks kinda flat for that, there's usually some kind of highlight or contrast across the frame, hair lights, edge lights and such. it might be a bit overcooked, but that is probably the reflection off the white background, can't tell for sure on my potato device
>>4154942They give me a few liters of vodka to drink when I am filming stuff. They need me shoot upskirt and downblouse videos too. I love my gig and they don’t care if I take creep shots of roasties watching the bands.
>>4155005If I had a gig that paid me in money and not big bottles of vodka, I’d get a c fast 2.0 card for my Blackmagic Camera and not an ssd drive.
>>4154649Top carry-handle will help, working on walking smoothly will help, you could also use a wheelchair, hoverboard, cart, something like that.
>>4152567It would almost certainly not be worth it. Are you near a major metropolitan area with a large film industry already? No? Definitely not. Yes? Maybe. Do you have money to burn? Yes? Go for it. No? Absolutely not, financial suicide.Is there a better way to get a proper place to make indie films? Yes, shoot one anywhere. Have you seen Paris, Texas? Shoot on the sides of highways, in nearly-abandoned small towns, places where people won't hassle you about permits.
>>4155125It would be very funny to put a horse in the barn and make cinematic horse fucking videos in the barn.
>>4155149It'd be funnier to use cows instead. Also, the cows are played by women with very large breasts (for authenticity) for budget reasons. That would be really funny. I'm getting a chuckle just thinking about it
>>4155152I’d pay $5 to $15 to go to a movie theater and watch cow (or horse) porn.
anyone here make money from shooting/editing or both?
>>4155462howd u find work?
for the anon from the last thread asking about digitizing minidv tapes- elgato video capture stick is 90$. cheaper than outsourcing but the video quality is pretty eh and youll need to toy around with export settings in premiere though ymmv. unfortunately idk about a workaround for the playhead situation other than just be conscious about playback really

I won an ebay auction for an S1 with v-log plus 24-105 f/4 OIS, Panasonic audio interface, 128gb CFexpress card, a card reader, cage, batteries and a few other accessories for €875, I'm now taking bets on whether the seller will actually ship it or find some bullshit excuse not to let it go for that price.
>>4156191I had bad luck getting good priced cameras on eBay; if the seller doesn’t ship PayPal will refund your money. They did that when a seller didn’t send me the c70 I won on eBay. I had much better luck getting older cameras like the original blackmagic pocket and the red one mx and vintage lenses on eBay. If the seller does ship, the camera might be stolen. Good luck getting your camera.
>>4156166I have an original blackmagic but I haven’t used the camera yet. I got the original pocket camera because I just want to play around with dng raw.
been looking at camera bodies for a while now, don't really have a sense of what to get. i want to film settings and turn them into background plates for cg work. what would be a good camera or lens for capturing architecture and landscapes with interesting, artistic perspectives? not necessarily common or realistic but useful for stylizing and exaggerating shots?i don't mind getting a super basic entry camera to learn with first, but if i can do that while also hitting those requirements too, that'd be cool.

I want to properly learn direction. What I have been doing lately is that I am watching lots of films but due to my overstimulated 21st brain, I can't remember shit. Although there is a lot of pleasure in watching those films but I have learned jackshit. Here's the method that I am going to try:I am going to watch the whole filmography of top 5 directors that I love and I am going watch their films on repeat and dissect them like a mechanic to see the process for myself. I will try to memories their styles and then I going to apply it or mimic it and then I am going to mix and merge them with my own subjective additions. I gonna properly learn the craft first and then I will try to develop my own style. What do you anons think? Is my recipe good? What should I add or drop?
>>4156540Don't be autistic Just watch whatever you want and go film some shit
>>4156540>I want to properly learn direction.oktilt your head so the back of your head is closer to your shoulders and your nose is further away from your chest. look at the ceiling/sky.that's uptilt your head so your nose is closer to your chest and the back of your head is further away from your shoulders. look at the ground.that's downnow, do this very carefully: stand in front of a mirror and move your arms so you make an "C" shape like so. this should be the pose you see in the mirror. do not get this backwards. you want your mirror to look like this picture.the arm closer to your head, towards the sky, is on the left sidethe arm further away from your head, closer to the ground is on the right sidepractice this a little until you are comfortable with up, down, left, and right. when you get the hang of it you can start experimenting with complex directions like "down and to the right, diagonally". more on that later.
>>4156191>>4156196the seller did indeed find a bullshit excuse not to send the camera and canceled the order while the same listing is still online on another websitewhat an annoying fucking parasite
>>4156541Almost all of art history and its teaching methods demand a scientific and technical approach, almost indistinguishable from any other craft. Proper technique, common artistic theories (composition, colour, proportion), and the expectation of personal growth and improvement, should all be important aspects of an artistic background. And it is the same for film too. >>4156542Upboated
>>4156541>>4156542>>4156545Dionysian imitatio is an ancient concept which says that you shut the up and learn the craft first from past masters. >Dionysian imitatio is the influential literary method of imitation as formulated by Greek author Dionysius of Halicarnassus in the first century BCE, which conceived it as the rhetorical practice of emulating, adapting, reworking and enriching a source text by an earlier author. It is a departure from the concept of mimesis which only is concerned with "imitation of nature" instead of the "imitation of other authors." >Latin orators and rhetoricians adopted the literary method of Dionysius' imitatio and discarded Aristotle's mimesis; the imitation literary approach is closely linked with the widespread observation that "everything has been said already", which was also stated by Egyptian scribes around 2000 BCE. The ideal aim of this approach to literature was not originality, but to surpass the predecessor by improving their writings and set the bar to a higher level. A prominent Latin follower of Dionysius was Quintilian, who shared with him the view of imitatio as the practice that leads to an historical progress of literature over time. Both Dionysius and Quintilian discuss imitation exclusively from the point of view of rhetoric. In Quintilian, and in classical rhetoric in general, rhetoric drew much attention to the process of imitatio; the four operations of quadripartita ratio that organize all the figures of speech, defined as a "ready-made framework" of "relatively mechanical procedures" for the emulation, adaptation, reworking and enrichment of a source text by an earlier author. This view of rhetoric was taken by Erasmus in De Copia Rerum.

>>4156589Thank you, anon.
got myself a gh5, is it worth shooting vlog or gh5 cinelike d vs just the standard mode?not really looking to do much with the footage, just fuck around when i go traveling
>>4156606Depends on how much you want to edit the footage afterwords. For your purposes, you won't need to shoot in VLOG since that's meant for serious color grading.
>>4156540When I decided I wanted to be a director, I was in the exact opposite situation.I had been watching lots and lots of films because I loved film. And I watched a lot of mediocre and bad films as well.Seeing those films and thinking to myself "if they'd done [x] or framed that shot like so, it'd be much better" started me on a path of realising that I wanted to make films because I thought I could do it better and loved telling stories.Generally speaking, you really need that passion.So my only advice would be to try watching some films that aren't regarded as masterpieces and think about what they could've done to be better films.

How good is the Intellytech Socanland 230Wh Lithium-Ion V-Mount Battery? Approximately how long would this battery power a bmpcc 4k camera, and an on-camera monitor?
>>4156846Would you mind giving some backstory to this project of yours?
>>4156618Zach if he was talented and actually cared about making great videos.
>>4157074My goal is to create cinematic troll and /p/-bait videos. I was inspired by “Birth of a Nation” by D.W. Griffith who made the first troll video that would make /p/ proud and he also made the first film that became what we know as a long Hollywood film too. It is a great film that both /vid/ film nerds and the ‘tards on /p/ could enjoy. I want to make a film like that for QAnon; Griffith made a video for the KKK but Q has a lot more lulz than the KKK and I want to laugh at morons getting angry after watching my films,
>>4157159If you know Zack. Tell Zack that the secret to creating great videos is to abuse psychedelic drugs. Abusing psychedelics is much more important that the gear you use,

>>4156969How long could I run a bmpcc 4k with a Intellytech Socanland 160Wh Battery? I got a few of those because the 230Wh Batteries are not discontinued.
I found this battery. Core SWX Helix Max 360 Lithium-Ion Dual-Voltage Battery (367Wh, V-Mount). I wonder how long this bad boy would power a bmpcc 4k. I think I could get at least a few days of video recording with this beast of a battery.
>>4157768I’m not planning on flying with this battery. I just plan on driving to my locations. I know airlines don’t like people flying with big fvcking batteries.
>>4157772One of the reasons DeWalt designed their Flexvolt batteries the way they did (mechanical) is because it got around regs. Their battery covers physically switch the stacks from series (60V) to parallel (20V) when attached, meaning they could ship internationally without any issues. Basically, you're buying a 20V battery and as soon as you take it out of the packaging it's 60V.
>>4157776I am so glad that they designed a battery that got around the regs because I was looking for a high-powered battery for my cameras and this is the only battery that I could get shipped out to me. I want to go out and shoot a whole day (with my blackmagic cameras) w/o needed to constantly swap batteries.
>>4157793Kek, you're using that crazy adapter?
>>4157793What is wrong with swapping batteries? I love swapping those bad boys.
>>4156848I got another one. This was shot on a vintage 3ccd camcorder and it features trumps child. Enjoy!https://youtu.be/qCOr9QghB7Q
>>4157163Very interesting. Do you plan, perhaps, on taking it to the next level regarding the direction? Like making longer forms with it, maybe even a feature lenght?
>>4158261Eventually I want to do something long form but I’ll need to find an actor or actress that is willing to work with me. The actress I work with now won’t let me use proper lighting which makes it harder to produce good quality content. I am just using the current actress for lens and sensor tests and once I find an actor or actress that lets me properly light them, I’ll make something longer and more coherent.
>>4158267>The actress I work with now won’t let me use proper lighting which makes it harder to produce good quality content.How come? Is she like super sensitive to light or something?
>>4158268It’s the heat the lights generate that she doesn’t like. Even led lights are too hot for her if the light is bright enough to make any impact on the image. Plus I think the light hurts her eyes or gives her a head ache.
>>4158274bounce the light nigga
you guys have any suggestions for good stock footage resources for ~90s japan stuff?
>>4158442Thanks, anon! I’ll do that.

>>4158586I like it, what are the specifics on this one? Focal lenght, F stop etc?
>>4158606I am using the Lomography Petzval 58mm F1.9 Brass Lens EF lens at F1.9 set for maximum bokeh on a Canon c70 with the booster that makes any EF lens you put the camera look like a full frame lens. I set the aperture at 1.9 but I don’t know the actual aperture because I know that the EF speed booster changes the aperture. Pic Related: this is the lens I used and I used a Waterhouse f/1.9 apeture plate with the lens; I put in on a Canon EF to RF speed booster so I could get more of the awesome bokeh that this lens offeres.[EXIF data available.

>>4158610Last year the Lomography Petzval 58mm F/1.9 Brass Lens EF Lens costs around. $1,000 on eBay and now they are going for about $6,000. I am glad I got the lens when I did because 6k is way to expensive for that sweet sweet swirly bokeh.[EXIF data available.

>>4158606I also dialed the lens for maximum strength bokeh because this lens allows you to manually select how strong you want the bokeh which is super awesome and the ability to control the bokeh is the main reason why I bough the lens in the first place.
Is there a way to record externally without the need for an entire monitor like the atomos?Just a tiny boxed processing unit hooked up via hdmi?Additionally, how viable is it to transfer from your cards to your phone/laptop when you're not shooting? It's another huge point of failure, possibly losing the footage.
>>4158586>>4158610Any alternatives to get this sort of bokeh?Also the footage looks kino. How much color grading have you done?
