When you set up to shoot an interview, the angles and frames you choose can make or break the video. In this post, we will go over ten different angles that you can use when shooting interviews. You can think of it as a personal cheat sheet for interviews. Some of the ideas are for your A-camera, and some are for B-cam. We used a RED Dragon on a Manfrotto 645 FAST and 504x head as our A-cam, and a BMPCC 4K on a Manfrotto 635 FAST and an old MVH500AH head.
In Mathieu Stern’s videos, we’ve seen some fantastic vintage lenses paired with modern cameras. In his latest video, he pulls off another unordinary combination of camera and lens. He mounts a lens that’s older than the Eiffel Tower on a $15,000 RED Dragon camera and shoots video in daylight and in low light. The results are wonderful, and you can check them out in the video.
We’ve all seen this lens vs that lens and camera vs phone comparisons before, but I’ve not seen one quite like this before. A $48 Yongnuo 50mm f/1.8 lens on a ridiculously expensive 5K RED cinema camera. They say that no matter what camera you’re using, it’s all about the glass. So, how does this lens really stand up? That’s what YouTuber Potato Jet wanted to find out, so he bought one,, and then stuck it on his RED camera.
To compare a $50 camera to a $50,000 camera might seem a little unfair. And maybe it is, but whoever said that life was supposed to be fair? A battle between two video cameras at such opposite ends of the budget scale, though, does highlight some very interesting points. Such extremes illustrate the things to look out for when buying any camera.
In this video, Niko Pueringer from Corridor Digital performs exactly this comparison. Pitting a $50 used Sony Handycam HDRCX405 against $50,000 worth of RED Dragon 6K. The RED rig has actually cost the team $47,229 over the last three years, but they decided $50K had a better ring to it. Watch the video to see how the two compare.
The RED Epic Dragon prototype was the first sensor to score over 100 on DxOMark sensor score scale, and it hit 101. But they has recently given RED’s 35.4MP Helium 8K sensor the highest overall score so far: 108. It means that this is not the first to exceed the 100 point bar, but it set up a new record.
The Incredible Dog Challenge is said to be the premier dog agility event in the US, and this year’s promo video is every bit as awesome as the dogs it features.
Luckily for us, Devin also made a great behind-the-scenes video showing how he captured dogs jumping over 20 feet into a swimming pool and slaloming at crazy speeds.
