Final Words


Sebastian Wöber here, the creator of Cinema5D. I’m a cinematographer based in Austria and I brought this site to life a year ago. At Cinema5D, we are all about shooting video on a DSLR camera. We strive to support everyone who shares that vision.

Gear is such an important part in shooting good movies and there is so much crap on the market by now. I really felt the necessity, and responsibility of my position to review as much as possible. It took three months to get here and unfortunately, I didn’t get to review all of it but I hope I can help you and the whole DSLR community to move in the right direction.

I had Jared Abrams our cinema5D news guy to edit this text. I want to note that English is not my native tongue. So please forgive any odd language you come across and I hope you understand and enjoy this review.
