DSLR Cinema

DSLR Cinema. Ive just finished reading Kurt Lancasters excellent ebook on DSLR Cinema. For anyone wondering what all the fuss is about I have to say the depth and scope of the book is superb. As a declared techie I really like the budget to equipment lists he has compiled towards the end of the book. Even if the reader is a life-long video/tv pro the material will be of interest.

What I also found both interesting and surprising is that a “fully spec’ed” professional rig say a Nikon D7000 or Canon 7D that includes…

-A Zacuto Zfinder

-Jag35 DSLR Shoulder rig

-Lensbaby kit and a few choice primes

-Kessler Pocket Dolly v2

-SDI/HDMI Field monitor

-Lite Panels LED kit

– a good audio kit including a JuicedLink or Beachtek box, Wireless Mic kit and a RODE VideMicPro

is likely to set you back in or close to the cost of a SONY EX3 VJ kit =  Euro 10,000. Viva la HDSLR revolution!
