Getting the film look isn't just camera settings and fancy shots. So how do you get the film look? Let's find out! An in-depth video series covering everything from the script to the screen.
I was shooting on a Canon 600D for about 3 years, using it for a wide rage of projects. When it was time to upgrade about 5 months ago I looked at staying with Canon and there full frame options, like the 5D iii or 7D, but there was not real increase in quality regrading video sharpness. Yes is is a better camera for stills which I do shot as well, but for the price it's not worth it for what you are getting in return.
So I went for the Sony A7s which I picked up for about £1000, second hand but it was in perfect condition. The sharpness of the video and stills is superior to the canon, the color not so much but you got used to it.
After looking at the specs of the 5D Mark IV and the price, well I think Sony is a better deal. You can pick up a Sony A7s or A7r Mark ii for less than the Mark IV, so I think they are defiantly over pricing them self's out of the market for most.
When a new camera comes out, there needs to be something that ever significantly improves in the camera or add something that is new like the built in image stabilizer on the Sony A7 Mark ii line of cameras. With the Canon 5D Mark IV what's new that isn't already out there or cheaper.
