It looks like our beloved HDSLR’s are making their way into the world of Winter sports. Skinet is reporting that a few companies have turned to HDSLR’s in part, for upcoming films. Warren Miller Entertainment has been around forever. They mostly shoot on film but have started shooting on the Canon 7D. Dendrite Studios has also jumped into the fray with this trailer for their upcoming film “Out Of The Shadows” Here is a quote from the Skinet article.
“The primary advantage to shooting with HDSLR cameras is the lens quality. “You can get a more professional-looking image based on the glass quality and the lenses,” says Josh Berman of Level 1 Productions. “The average video camera glass is inferior to 35mm lenses or lenses we are used to seeing in Hollywood.” Athan Merrick from Dendrite Studios agrees. “No matter how expensive the camera is, a bad piece of glass makes the camera worthless.” The ability to change out a telephoto and wide-angle lens also offers more possibilities when it comes to getting the shot.”
