Anyone who has been paying any attention to the world of film and photography can't help but be excited. Right now filmakers have an amazing level of quality they can bring to their production at prices that simply werer not availiable just a few years ago. As I look to the world of film I'm very excited about the future and the possibilities for me. I've always really liked fillm but have always been very dissapointed in the quality of 'video cameras' or camcorders. Now with the oppurtunity to try story telling with film with the same quality I demand from phtoography it's a whole new world.
The Canon 5d mk ii turned everything upside down when it came to quality video. To think that a $2500 body could produce a broadcast teivision show like "House" is amazing. I think it is about to happen all over again.
Both Canon and Red have announcements on Novemer 3rd, Canon's announcement will be in Hollywood so that should give you an indicator of what 's coming. I have no idea if it's a Canon 5d mk iii or a new video camera with a larger sensor but whatever it is I'm sure it will be oustanding. DP, Filmaker and director Philip Bloom outlines it well here. Enjoy!
