Good Article On Still Cameras For Video From B&H

Discussion in 'Amateur Video Production' started by David Ruether, Dec 23, 2013.

  1. I just ran across this article on using various
    types of still cameras for video production,
    from B&H Photo-Video, at:
    http://www.bhphotovideo.com/indepth...3-_-Body_Indepth_Micro-Four-Thirds-Filmmakers
    It is mostly accurate, although the Panasonic
    7-14mm lens mentioned is the 35mm-FF-equivalent
    of 14-28mm rather than 14-35mm - and while it
    is true that both the Olympus MFT and Panasonic
    MFT lenses and bodies use the same mount and
    electrical contacts, there are some important
    functional differences with what is done with
    this which can discourage cross-brand mixing of
    the two brands' products for some purposes, and
    this was not covered. These mainly involve the
    different concepts of where some functions should
    occur (in the bodies, or in the lenses), such
    as where lens linear-distortion, illumination,
    and CA should be corrected, and where the
    stabilization should be done (but perhaps this
    was beyond the coverage-intent of this otherwise
    excellent overview...;-).

    Thanks for the link David.
    I found the reason why they chose the sensor size interesting in the
    article.
    Its a good article for anyone wanting to find out more about MTF cameras.
    It would be interesting if they compared a MTF camera with a dSLR camera
    side by side.

  3. Look up Philip Bloom's sites and eoshd.com for these;
    the "winnah an' troo champeen" be Panasonic MFT in
    the "side-by-sides". The differences range from quite
    noticeable to astonishing...;-)
