I have always had a thing for photographs! Maybe it has something to do with my mother's longtime boyfriend of 8 years who was a professional photographer. Therefore, because the DSLR can double as photo taking machine and a video capturing machine, I've developed a new love for it. I aspire to use it in my scene assignment!
I've learned that it has the ability to rack focus, which I really wanna use for my intense moments! It gives a quality cinematic look that I adore. The DSLR uses interchangeable lenses (which reminds me of the Sony's filters) and a sensor that is larger that gives it that higher quality. I also like how it tolerate low-light levels better. My film is dark and eery so I think it would work well with my film.
Here are some Pros and Cons of the DSLR, that I've reviewed from Cnet.com"
1. Greater lens versatility.
2. Almost always better image quality
3. Better performance.
4. Usually a more functional "shooter's" design.
5. Greater flexibility.
1. Generally bigger and heavier.
2. Increased complexity
3. Higher prices.
4. Generally inconvenient to use the LCD for framing. ( I plan on using an adapter to connect the camera to my laptop so my DP and I can monitor our shots.)
