Serious D-SLR Moviemaking Gear
Are you considering turning your D-SLR into an HD-movie-making machine? You need help—the kind of help you can get from the folks at Zacuto. The company may be unknown to many still photographers, but for motion picture types, Zacuto is familiar as a supplier of motion picture camera equipment. What does this have to do with photography? Because more and more photographers these days are using their HD-ready D-SLRs for movie-making, and Zacuto offers a whole line of D-SLR Cinema Kits. These are the parts and accessories that help you turn your still camera’s quirky video controls into real-life pro video systems, things like eyepiece viewfinders and shoulder mount supports. While you’re browsing Zacuto’s web site be sure check out their series of videos about D-SLR video shooting. The Great Camera Shootout series compares digital still cameras to film—but not in the way most of us still shooters are used to. This is a comparison of HD-video capture from D-SLRs pitted against “legendary” 35mm film movie cameras. I wonder how these newfangled devices stack up?
