Choose your weapon: SLR versus video camera for filmmaking

09 February 2015 - 02:31 PM

Wetpixel posted Jonathan Bird's excellent article listing his thoughts about the advantages of video camera over SLRs for filmmaking on the front page. The aim in doing so was to create a debate about the relative merits of each type of camera.




Hence I started this thread to allow the discussion to spill over. Please feel free to list your thoughts and comments about the issues raised:

We now have the last few spaces available for the Wetpixel Oceanic Whitetip Expedition. We will be diving with Epic Diving at Cat Island from 12 to 18 April.


The trip is land based, and we aim to make it as photographically productive as possible!


If you are interested, please check out the trip's page and/or email me for more details or bookings.



Panasonic LX100 4K footage

23 January 2015 - 02:40 AM

During the recent Wetpixel Tiger Sharks expedition, I was able to use the Panasonic LX100 to shoot some video.


I am really impressed with the clean output. 


As I was using a Nauticam housing, they have used the footage in their press release about the housing (hence the branding and the editing). Some of the footage was also shot by Ryan Canon.


Please click the 4K option to view this as it "should" be seen!



I will be reviewing both camera and housing performance very soon....



For sale: Nikon D800

16 January 2015 - 01:08 AM

Hi all, 


I am selling my Nikon D800 SLR body. I now have a D810, and the fact that the housings are not compatible has forced me to sell.


It has had 33203 shutter actuations, some of which are on this site!


It is in excellent condition, and although I no longer have its box, It will be supplied with strap, battery, charger and user manual.


Some images of it (Please note that I am not selling the lens, and the sale is for the body only)
