DSLR Is The Best Solution Of Movie Shooting For Common People

Different from 10 years ago, more and more people become the video producer. It is mostly due to the contribution of smartphone, DSLR, and online video sharing sites like YouTube. If you once saw an excellent micro movie on Viemo that didn’t take by the famous directors, it probably shoot with the DSLR.

In fact, the history of DSLR video shooting doesn’t very long. The first camera with the function is the Nikon D90, but now it has been the standard requirement of DSLR. Well, there is a new product that didn’t have the function – Nikon DF, which claimed with the theme of pure photography. However, the retro design and so called theme are just the marketing strategy of the manufactures.

Compared with the traditional digital camcorder, the most obvious advantage of DSLR is the three-dimension effect, which is due to the censor size of the both tool. With the born advantages of big size sensor and interchangeable big aperture lens, the final effect is compared with the professional movie.

What’s the image effect of DSLR videos? This question is related large. When we talk about the image effect, the most common words are resolution, high ISO effect, and color rendition. DSLR has its born features: one of them is the interchangeable lens, which is most related to the resolution. High ISO effect is most related to the performance of DSLR censor and processor.
