video journalism - learning from the film experts

I have just recorded an audience with Asif Kapadia who shot to fame with his film Warriors.

I wanted to know how well the language of cinema translates to video and I got an interesting answer, which I'll post tomorrow.

Hi David - Check out the Zacuto's Great Camera Shootout '08 video - a very eye opening video on the differences in image quality and round table discussion on what determines the equipment to be used - thought you might appreciate the video given the nature of the title of this blog posting.

Cliff that's an awesome find. Whilst I agree with their assertion about the test being for film and doc makers, I'd say it's going to be of huge interest to VJs looking at long format.

The A1 holds steady for its price and range coupled with a lexus lens adapter.

But as VJ matures, and the audience becomes more discerning watch for the winners.

Reasonaby sized cameras that allow for DOF ( depth of fields), richer saturated colour palettes.

The response I got from Asif Kapedia was equally interesting.

I can see issues ahead for VJism, where a film scores high online and wants to make it to a bigger screen, so yes your find nails a flags up a very important debate
