How about frame rates other than 24/25/30? I love my Canon 5d Mkiii because of the ease of use straight out of the box, changing to shoot in 60fps (despite the 720p) and quick import into editing without fiddling.
Scenario 1 - The Wedding Photographer.
Takes a lot of photos at the wedding.
Does some basic color correction batch process and sends the client a CD or online page of all the photos so the happy couple can pick the photos they like. Maybe it's the top 100 for example.
The photographer then does some major colour color correction and adjustments to the selected photos, prints the photos, makes an album, puts them on a webpage. All are happy.
Scenario 2 - The Video guy.
Films everything. The floor. The out of focus vase of flowers. The groom putting his pants on. More floor. That moment the bride wipes her nose during the vows. When cousin Jimmy threw up from too many vodka shots. Some aunt doing the chicken dance on the dance floor.
Plus a lot of really nice shots, not color corrected, not edited, not added with music, with live atmos of a grumbling uncle about the price of wheat (if they live in the country), no music chosen by the happy couple that represent their relationship since they met at a bar at 2am downtown.
You as a videographer give them an edited, color corrected, highlight of the event, plus perhaps an extended version with the full ceremony and some extra dancing and some best wishes from friends and family.
You give them a CD with a quicktime move, put it on YouTube or a web page. Family overseas watch it and shed a tear. The couple watch it and shed a flood.
There's world peace and cats and dogs live together happily.
Why would you give them the bits you, as a seasoned professional, deamed unnecessary to communicate the emotion of the day? And also with live sound, ungraded and with extra floor???
Put it in the contract up front. They pay for and get an edited piece of video. They do not get the off cuts.
Would you ask Michelangelo for the chipped off pieces of marble from the statue of David? I think not.
