  • TOP 5 MTV EDITING TRICKS « Wide Open Camera
    4 Walk ramp chop the magical jump cut with a hip hop beat Cameraman presses record follows action subject is phenomenally boring says nothing of interest because they re an idiot In order to work around this simply jump cut ramp cut add in a bit of double drop too all to the finely chopped precision of a Neptunes beat You can get away with murder horrible shots boring presenters anything you like as long as the image is jump needlessly and repetitively all the time then moronic viewers will feel that something s happening And god knows we need to keep them chewing on the furniture Also don t be scared to flop the footage just for you know no apparent reason Works best with steadicam shots As seen on MTV Cribs Pimp my ride My Super Sweet Sixteen Here s a good example http youtu be oOSU0w7QUlY t 35s 5 Fade in Fade out This is one of those oh so simple tricks but the subtlety with which you use it is the key to doing it right There s no point fading in and out at the end of sections of content Forget about using it like a paragraph break You have to think of it as a comma But then mangle your editing grammar so the commas are all in the wrong place This is such a rubbish trick it s best used with ultra dramatic music to signify stuff that s really important when the shots that go with it are awful Even when the shots are good there seems to be no end to the potential of the fade in fade out As seen on Beauty and the Geek X Factor lots and lots of romantic R B videos There are many more of course but I find these are the ones which really jazz things up One other trick is to use the lens blur filter in Final Cut Pro keyframed from 0 50 and back again over the space of about 5 frames This buzzes the RGB channels of the footage and is a nice way to lend a bit of fizz to the footage in response to a piece of music Another one is the zoom dissolve filter Oh yes Go forth and shizzle my dazzlers Jared Abrams Visit My Website View My Other Posts Jared Abrams is a cinematographer based in Hollywood California After many years as a professional camera assistant he switched over to still photography About two years ago a new Canon camera changed the way the world sees both motion and still photography He just happened to be in the right place at the right time Related Posts BEATBOX BAR CRAWL MAKING IT Posted on 08 August 2011 In case you missed it 5DtoRGB v1 5 UPDATED Posted on 10 August 2011 http twitter com natums Nate Weber hahaha The Walk Ramp Chop is my favorite thing to spice up a stupid corporate video that has no

    for some reason It also requires two Canon LP E6 batteries I would recommend this unit for someone that wants an on camera monitor that transforms into an EVF system The SmalHD DP4 is around 525 alone and will set you back 750 with the EVF viewfinder Click here for the manufactures specifications and current pricing Pros Image Quality Size Functionality Cons Size Requires Two Batteries Runs Hot Update Only one Canon LP E6 battery is required to power the SmallHD DP4 The Zacuto Z Finder EVF was our favorite of the three tested It has exceptional image quality and functionality The menu system is easy to navigate and has custom presets for individual camera systems The HDMI inputs are the most durable we have seen on any piece of equipment The HDMI cable is the best on the market bar none I would not be afraid to drop this EVF one bit In fact I have bounced it a few times already The viewfinder was familiar and comfortable for long shooting days The only fault I could find with the Zacuto EVF would be price It was the most expensive of the three units tested I can highly recommend this one as both an EVF and small on camera monitor The Z Finder EVF will set you back around eight hundred bones Click here for the manufactures specifications and current pricing Pros Image Quality Durability Battery Life Cons Price Availability Jared Abrams Visit My Website View My Other Posts Jared Abrams is a cinematographer based in Hollywood California After many years as a professional camera assistant he switched over to still photography About two years ago a new Canon camera changed the way the world sees both motion and still photography He just happened to be in the right place at the right time Related Posts Quick Take Lens Test Canon Vs Tokina Posted on 03 December 2010 Hybrid Vigor Film Kickstarter Project Help Any Way You Can Posted on 23 July 2012 FCPX Keyboard Cheat Sheet Great Info By Scott Simmons Posted on 14 August 2014 Quick Take Video GenusTech Shoulder Mount System Posted on 09 January 2013 Samsung Announces NX500 4K Camera Under 800 US Posted on 05 February 2015 Sony E 50mm f1 8 OSS Lens Test Video Posted on 01 March 2012 http ericdiosay wordpress com Eric Diosay I expected as much Ultimately I went with Zacuto s EVF despite it s price point But you do get what you pay for After seeing how robust the EVF after a fall it s functionality and small form factor the decision was clear The only drawback is it s power source I want to power everything on my rig with one battery and Zacuto s DTAP solution is kinda bulky and clunky Would have loved a reinforced barrel plug to lemo or DTAP http twitter com c2camera Chris Collins The Zacuto EVF survived harsh dusty and sometimes rainy conditions along with an unexpected drop test here

  • WHAT CAMERA SHOULD YOU BUY NEXT? STICK OR TWIST? « Wide Open Camera
    out and working then I would probably have gone for it Doesn t take stills Price 5 599 TWIST Holding on for something better Canon 5DMk3 I started out with a 7D but after shooting with its big brother I couldn t go back Even if that meant giving up slow mo the superior stills and video of the 5D made that a pretty easy decision However there appears to be no sign of a Mk3 yet and it s likely to be 2012 before we see one Sony and Panasonic leapt out of the gate with their large chip camcorders but Canon s silence has been thoroughly surprising The 5DMk2 is still the best video shooting DSLR but it s long in the gills I d actually put up with the rolling shutter if I could do away with aliasing have some slow mo options and record audio at higher quality in camera So stick or twist hold on till a 5Dmk3 comes out Well it doesn t exist yet we ve no idea what it ll be or even if such a thing will even exist So for now there s no point worrying about it If you have a 5DMk2 I d suggest holding onto it for another 6 months and just sticking for now Red Scarlet Where is it Well it was at NAB I saw it on the RED stand and well I wasn t that impressed The 2 3 sensor gives it a really TV look That s fine I d say for doco work it ll probably be a great little camera and the way RED has rethought the functionality of this line of cameras is really interesting I just don t think it s really what I want and for many people going back to that small a sensor after larging it with APS C and beyond well Having said all that when you look at what you can do with 120fps with the damn thing then there s still a reason to at least consider it if and when it ever makes it into production RED Epic Epic S The Epic S is the camera that the Scarlet S35mm was originally intended to be Probably somewhere in the region of 12k it s the most interesting camera of all the ones I ve discussed here Essentially the Epic S is a lightened stripped down version of the bigger Epics It s destined to shoot 5K its form factor is very close to that of a DSLR and the claim that you can pull stills from every frame of video you ever shoot means RED s promise of DMSC stills and motion from the same unit might well have come true Opinions are split over test footage from the Epic M I ve seen stuff that looks great and I ve seen stuff that looks flat and personality free too clean and TV like This short film is supposed to show off
