This weekly course covers the most common questions videographers encounter when shooting and editing with DSLR cameras, from choosing a frame size and frame rate to understanding moiré. Authors Rich Harrington and Robbie Carman will also help you understand the impacts of compression and the difference between cropped (or micro 4/3rds) and full-sized sensors in cameras, and much more. This continual FAQ guide is a handy way to find the answers to the questions that plague you the most.
Matching cameras on set when you're in a multi-camera situation is really important. There's nothing worse than the sinking feeling when you get back to your studio and every camera looks different. So when it comes to matching cameras, there's a few important things to consider. First, if you're using the same model of camera, make sure that you're using the same ISO settings, the same shutter settings. More importantly, make sure that all of your cameras are using the same frame rate. I've seen a lot of productions have a lot of hassles because different cameras were shooting at different frame rates. If you're using cameras that are a different make and model, you're going to get a little bit more technical.
And this is where Scopes can be your friends. Having onset Scopes such as Waveforms and Vector-scopes, can make it much easier to balance and match cameras from one camera to another. And at the very least, you need to have a white balance card on set. Nothing ruins a production more than cameras that have really bad white balance.
