Have you seen David Kong's documentary about working with less?
This is what he shot as part of his trip: http://vimeo.com/46762697
And this is what he shot it with: http://vimeo.com/71180315
Also, a big consideration is being robbed or having your gear stolen. Assume that at the end of the trip you'll lose all your equipment, pack accordingly, and make do.
The light in those videos! Brrrrr....
I meant it in a supportive way, of course ^_^
Are you guys finding these camera ads lacking?
Whenever a new camera gets announced I want to know what it would feel to work with. Namely I want all of the following covered:
- how long a battery lasts?
- is there a battery grip?
- how much will I spend on batteries to last me 12 hours?
- what does the screen look like in the sunlight?
- lens??? show me recommended lenses, and I happen to love fast primes (mental case here, I know)
- rolling shutter? how bad???
- flat picture profile?
- dynamic range?
- night-shoot, noise at ISO 400?
- what crop factor is their APS-C?
- focus zebra?
- histogram / highlight spot?
- manual gain for audio?
- mount? what if I have EF glass, what adapters will I need?
I mean most of us have camera systems and I submit to you most of us are non-Samsung. So, to switch I need to know what the cost of the entire system would be, or at least how I can switch just a part of the system -- the camera by using adapters, etc.
I shot this with Canon Rebel t2I and an 85mm f1.8 lens this past Friday:
If you like it then I submit to you that the cameras do not matter -- only the lights and the lenses matter.
The article pic is sooo nod obelisk! Whaaammm, "unit lost". Amirite???
Try the sling belts -- these are generics that multiple manufacturers make.
Here is a $13 from Cowboy Studios that I had for a year and that I trust my piece to:
The main advantage over a lot of other offers is that you can screw a tripod's quick release plate into the strap's plate. The very first picture in the second link shows that tripod hole -- they really listened to the videographers' feedbacks! This saves a looot of time for me on the set -- releasing the plate, hanging the camera over shoulder while relocating the slider / tripod.
I'll be surprised if you don't fall in love!
