"Graveyard Carz shot on Canon DSLR’s and edited in FCP"
Pretty rad article from Digital Post Productions John Virata about why “Graveyard Carz” decided to shoot their reality TV show on DSLR’s.
From the article:
“”After hearing about the 5D MK II and the 7D, and seeing demos on the web, we fell in love,” Faris said. “We loved that they can use just about any lens (with adapters) and that they use CF cards, which is a lot easier than logging a tape, waiting for it to ingest, and then finally going through and being able to edit. It’s as easy as drag and drop, and we like that. Another huge plus to the DSLRs is their low light performance. We can shoot in near darkness with very little noise. We are often walking through a field looking at prospective cars, and then go into a shed with no lights. What used to take us half an hour to set up lighting, now takes a simple change in ISO settings. And the shallow depth of field looks awesome.”
