HDSLR

Tips and Solutions

After cameras and lenses, the third slice of your wedding gear triad is your choice of lighting gear. The most basic system revolves around a dedicated TTL (through the lens) flashgun mounted on your camera’s hot shoe (or preferably on an adjustable flash bracket).

With the right tools, outdoor wedding photography can be a nice contrast to the more formal, controlled-light look of photographs taken within the confines of a catering hall or other wedding-centric indoor location.

This all depends on what type of lighting system you currently own. If you are shooting with tungsten or other form of continuous lighting, you’re in the game. If you’re shooting with electronic flash, the news isn’t as good unless you plan on shooting video one frame at a time. Strobes are simply the wrong tools for capturing video.

In the summer of 2008, Nikon released the D90, a DSLR with an extra feature: HD video recording. It rocked the digital photography and video worlds. Suddenly photographers could shoot dynamite video and videographers could get the look and feel of a cinema camera without the cinema camera price tag. HD video quickly became the feature to look for in a DSLR. A new category of camera was born: the HDSLR.

This chapter discusses the many benefits that HDSLRs have to offer, as well as the limitations that have to be considered when making the choice of adopting these cameras. Each benefit or limitation needs to be weighed against the specific needs of each user. However, there will always be situations where HDSLRs may not be the most effective choice.

The ability to choose from literally hundreds of lenses opens up a world of possibilities once impossible for small-budget productions. Being able to capture a wide view of a small room with a super-wide-angle lens, or getting a close-up of a subject from a distance, are just two of many powerful options at the photographer’s disposal.

While many "looks" can be achieved in post-production, certain aspects of the image are better controlled before the image is recorded. Optical filters modify the light before it enters the lens. The benefit of using optical filters instead of digital filters is that there is no added time in post production and less degradation of the image quality, especially in HDSLRs, which already have limited color space and a highly compressed image.

Lens flaring can occur when a light source such as the sun or artificial lights, strikes the front of the lens at a certain angle and then bounces across different surfaces to produce glare in the image. Using additional filters in front of the lens can increase the chances of flaring.

Using the lens focus ring to focus is the most basic and economical way to pull focus. It’s a good way to jump into the world of manual focus and also offers the simplest, smallest and lightest setup. In many situations, however, there will be a need for a better and more refined way of controlling focus.

While LCDs on some cameras have a high resolution, at 3" most objects appear too small to accurately judge focus and frame a shot. It is also difficult to see the LCD in bright daylight. Most HDSLRs (except for cameras with an electronic viewfinder) disable the optical viewfinder during video/live mode, so it's of no use other than for setting up a shot before going into live mode.

Motion control, to borrow a term, is another caveat of the HDSLR. Its form and ergonomics were designed to shoot stills without the need to record in motion. By the way the camera is held and where the start/stop button (shutter release) is located, it's obvious HDSLRs weren't designed for shooting video.

With all of the HDSLR handheld and shoulder supports available, a tripod is still the most stable form for mounting a camera. The stability factor becomes even more important when the HDSLR rolling shutter issue is considered, because the issue is exacerbated by motion. For this reason, unless the camera must be moved around to follow action, a tripod is an ideal way to support the camera.

Most handheld HDSLR setups make it impractical to start and stop recording because the buttons are on the back of the camera and the operator’s hands will generally be positioned elsewhere gripping handles on a support or tripod. That's not to say it isn't possible; it's just not easy. Some SLR remotes (not all) can control the start/stop function of the camera in Live/Video Mode.
