This Video Tells the Differences Between $500 and $50,000 Camera

For all the production managers who believes a $500 camera is a enough for production value, this video is for you

An increasingly popular strategy in the TV industry is to use DSLR cameras by videographers on TV productions. But will it lower production value?

This may seem like somewhat of a cliche, yet high production values originate from the ability of somebody knowing how to utilize the gear, as opposed to the hardware itself. In other words you know what you are doing.

Many think having a decent camera or costly lights and gear would improve production value. In my line of work had admittance to a portion of the best cameras accessible and I understand that the camera has literally nothing to do with it. You could have the best gear on the planet and still make a terrible looking shot. Similarly, in the event that you have a low end DSLR, for example, the Canon EOS Rebel T3i you can make something that looks really great.

Great creation qualities are 80-90% ability and 10-20% having great hardware. That's gives you success as a videographer.

Having a terrible camera will force you to become a great videographer

A Canon DLSR camera is incomplete in contrasted with something like a Arri Alexa Mini, yet this is something to be thankful for. What you can do with a function lacking camera is a trial of how great a videographer taker you are.

This essentially implies you need to work additional difficult to get a decent shot. You need to get the introduction spot on, you need to comprehend the confinements of the camera and precisely how it functions.
