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.
Male 1: Hi, my name's Rich Harrington. Male 2: And I'm Robbie Carmen. Male 1: And Rob, we're going to figure out this week how to put cameras in small places, because a lot of times you want to shoot in interiors and the traditional camera rigs just aren't as popular for this because they're so big. Male 2: Yeah, I mean, putting a shoulder mount camera like in a closet for a horror movie or something is an exercise in like, you know Miraculous engineering. Male 1: Well, people used to have to build, like, oversize props, like, oh, we want to make it, looks like someone is reaching in the mail box, Male 2: Right.
Male 1: they have to do all these perspective tricks, and now we've got things like GoPro and lipstick camera and, you know, while these DSLR are relatively beefy, mirrorless cameras getting even smaller. I like to use my Olympus for this sometimes. It's amazing. Male 2: Yeah. Well, I mean, it's really cool. Even a camera like this that has a body, you know,a battery grip on and a pretty big lens and stuff, it's still relatively small. You know, so being able to put this into a car or a closet. Up high, somewhere like that. Is much more attainable than it has been in the past with fuller size cameras. Male 1: And what's nice here too is of course with the flexibility. Here we have a wide angle lens on here.
Whcih is going to work really well for shooting maye in a car. Which were going to take a look at this week. Male 2: Yup. Male 1: And, we also have great ability here with things like the L-plate is going to give us, this is an Arca-Swiss type mount. This common bracketing here that are so much grip gear these days where you could just go ahead and, you know, grip that inside of a vehicle with a mount. Male 2: Absolutely. Male 1: You've got different points here. There's all sorts of rigs and systems. It's really kind of amazing. But I think, before we start going out and actually rigging the cameras, when we come back, I want to talk about some specific lighting options for working in tiny spots.
Male 2: Yeah, because besides just the camera, of course, there's things like lighting considerations, mounting considerations, there's even, you know, remote operation considerations. And we're going to talk about that this week.
