Best DSLR For Video?

Best DSLR For Video?


So what is the best all around DSLR for video
I’m gonna share with you my research and my best tips right now Hey whats up guys Sean here with video influencers helping you build your influence
And your income with online video And one of the big question that people are
always asking is what is the best DSLR for making videos and YouTube videos
So I had the opportunity to shoot on a lot of different cameras and
work with people who use all kinds of different cameras
but in this video I was specifically concern with the best all-around DSLR
like the one you can be sure it’s solid when it comes to price
features performance ease of use and also stay at the end of this video because
I’m going to be sharing some of the things that you should look for
in a DSLR even if you go with a different one as well as some of my best
money saving tips lets get into the review
so whats the best DSLR all-around for youtubers and video creators
I think is the canon 70D and here is why Number one of course the camera is HD every
camera you go with is gotta be HD 1080p it was brilliant video quality number
two a huge youtuber attribute Is it has a flip out
screen and not just a flip out screen but also a touch screen that is really good quality
on it so of course youtubers want that for if you would use it for vlogging or
when you are shooting a video and you need to able to see yourself or you want to be
able to compose the shoot number three is got a 30 min record time and so
you don’t have to keep restarting the video every like 12 minutes like some others DSLRs
or some of the older Canons number four and this is the stand out that this is the game
changer for the canon 70D and that is auto focus during
video and so de 70D introduces what’s known by dual pixel CMOS autofocus
and that simply means it’s really good at focusing when shooting video not only that
but you can also tap in the screen to focus you can set it to follow faces you can set
it to follow regions and so for youtubers specially that want to do reviews that want
to hold up a product and having the camera focus
on the product they want to make sure to not ruin a whole video by not having it in focus
having really good auto focus really sets this camera apart
and we’ll talk about it later because there’s other good cameras with autofocus but at a
much higher price range we are interested in what’s the
best all around that auto focus is a game changer
next is there is a huge variety of lenses available because is a canon camera
because canon really is so main stream that means a couple things that you are going to
be able to find more lenses than some other brands or
some of the niche brands but also if you search even on
like used or refurbish you can actually save money because there are so many out there
and get variety of lenses next is that the kit lenses that are kinda
like the standard lenses that would come bundle with the camera if
you buy it with a lens are actually really good and great for video
creators and youtubers to get started with
and one of the features that you want to look for is the kit lenses
most of them now are STM and that means that the auto focus system
It’s just on a step remoter and it means that it focuses fast and it focuses quiet
next is that the wireless features on this camera are super solid
Meaning it interfaces great with the canon the canon connect app its available on iPhone
and droid And so you can shoot the camera remotely you
can transfer files to your phone Most video creators and youtubers also need
to take great photography And well talk about that in a second
But what’s nice is that you can take really high end photography
Get that on your phone and then use that for social media content
And then also takes great photos and so if you’ve been watching Video Influencers
For any length of time you also know how important branding is
And that is not really is not just about your video content but that
You want good thumbnails you want good branding on your social media
Good photography to use in other places and so having a solid DSLR
You can also depend on this not just to create video content
But also to create photo content kinda your social media content
Creation machine And lastly it has a mic input so one of the
big challenges with a lot Of point shoots and with a lot of youtubers
video creators That’s kinda were you gotta start
But because you’ve got that mic input it really changes the game
For what your audio options are and that’s pretty common for DSLRs
But definitely should be mention So how much does a Canon 70D cost?
Well right now is still gonna round you about a 1000 dollars
And if you want to get a kit lens with it you can actually
Grab those or find those I just saw on Amazon for 1100 bucks
You can get a solid kit lens so definitely a STIP investment but what we
are talking about is all the features and performance that you get
for the price for instance the autofocus is really good
and that’s a huge feature that a lot of people want
but you can use something like a the sony A7s which I’ve used a lot now
the autofocus is better the video quality is better
but just the camera is about 2500 bucks and by the time
you are investing that much you could build an entire studio
lighting tripods mics everything so is there better DSLRs ? absolutely better
for video ? sure but best all around I really think is this
and another one you could look into that is also very popular
is the luminix gh4 but those are gonna run you I think 1500 ish right now
for just the body and if you are interested into researching
any of this stuff more I’ll link up this techy details in the YouTube
description So what about ease of use ? It should be known that there’s definitely
a learning curve from moving form say a point and shoot to a camera like this
however this is one of the most user friendly models out of any of the
DSLRs I’ve ever use and these days you can just spend really probably an
afternoon on YouTube researching specifically how to use the canon
70 D and pretty much to become an expert if you just invested the
time something to note but overall user friendliness
is very solid on the camera and the last think I consider when looking
into what’s the best all around DSLR for video and for YouTube is just
how many youtubers are using it and people from different areas and we interview
a tone of here on video influencers so people on the beauty
space that are doing like beauty channels life style channels and doing
a lot of look books and different kinds of content like that
and then people like Casey Neistat I mean He highly popularize this camera
and the fact that he use it for vlogging and I recently heard him say on a podcast
that the reason he still uses it is not because is perfect but because
of the autofocus is so great on it and because that’s really
important to him in fact I actually did a video on Casey set
up and you can check that out I’ll link that up in the YouTube card
that will pop up somewhere here if you are interested in that
now as promise I just wanted to share a kick tip when it comes to saving money
if you are going to make an investment on this camera or any other camera
though amazon.com as you can see here the 70D is running for
about a 1000 bucks just for the body so that mean it doesn’t come with
the lens but I was able to pick the 70D that we got off of amazon
for 750 bucks and the way we did it it was ship via prime and it came in two days
and it came and turn out perfect it’s we did it in this section right here
see you have two sections you have refurbish and you also have this used
so in used you can go through here and look at things for instance
like this one is a warehouse deal fulfill by amazon for under 700 dollars
its used acceptable so there’s not a lot of details
about that but it is amazon warehouse so there would be a return policy
so you just shaved 300 dollars off the price of the camera right there
so inside of this section here you can find a lot of great deals
and just make sure that the seller has a really positive rating
and that they’ve been around for a little while
Question of the day What camera do you currently use for your video content or your YouTube
content I would love to hear form you and connect with you in the comment section bellow So thanks so much for watching this video

How To Set Up Your DSLR Camera For A Cinematic Short Film

How To Set Up Your DSLR Camera For A Cinematic Short Film


Hey guys, Rob Ruef here with a tutorial on
how to set up your camera for shooting a cinematic short film. There’s a few things you need
to remember when you are setting up to shoot your film, and these are: frame rate, flat
picture style, depth of field and most importantly the exposure.
First is frame rate, your going to want to shoot with 24p or 25p for a cinematic look.
60p if necessary for slow motion but I wouldn’t use it too much. Make sure not to go below
23.976 frames per second or your video will look choppy and ugly.
Two, flat picture style, shoot in a flat picture style like cinestyle or flat or create your
own in picture style editor. A flat picture style can pick up more information because
shadows are raised and highlights are decreased. Desaturation is also common. Flat picture
styles are great because you can add whatever look you want to your clips. You can make
them dark and depressing or you can saturate it and make it look epic. And when you use
a flat picture style it’s more like shooting in a raw codec, an uncompressed raw like red
raw because you gain more detail, more dynamic range which is really key for post. It looks
way better your images will look great afterwards you can add a nice amount of contrast and
you won’t lose a lot of detail. Third thing. Is Depth of Field. This is one
of my favorite parts of filming. The ability gained from depth of field is great. You can
focus on a single object or have everything be in focus. It’s really your choice. Good
lenses for a short DOF are between f1.4 and f5.6 and your going to want to make sure that
you have the right lens before you start shooting. If your shooting a wide-angle shot you should
probably not have a telephoto lens or something like that. You should think about what kind
of lens you want, how you want your shot to look before hand and it should come out great.
The right lenses for a portrait are 50mm and 85mm. Telephoto is 135mm +. Wide-angle is
35mm and less. One other thing I wanted to point out. I actually
shoot in vintage prime lenses and the reason for that is, vintage prime lenses are great,
i love vintage lenses. They look great, they have a nice apeture ring on it so you can
just change it automatically, you don’t have to go in through the camera and set it up
that way, I find that really annoying. Old vintage lenses are really high quality, there
all metal and the glass is really nice. Some can be a little soft and have a little purple
fringing but those are really cheap and you can find a Mamiya 50mm f/2 for about $20 on
Ebay. It’s a great lens, I use that all the time. I’m just getting the Helios 58mm 44m-2
i think it is and that should be coming from Russia pretty soon, and i’m pretty excited
about that. If you check out some of my videos I always shoot with vintage prime lenses.
Fourth thing I have. Exposure. This is the most important part of shooting, and as I
said earlier a flat picture style can recover some details that are lost in shadows and
highlights. The histogram is really important, you want to set up your histogram so that
it’s almost blown out but the part is not actually touching the highlights, and you
don’t want it touching blacks either. First thing you want to do when you are setting
up your exposure is think if you want DOF choose your apeture wisely. If you do want
DOF choose below f5.6 if not do above f5.6. Then you choose your iso, like iso 100, 200,
400, etc., unless you have magic lantern you can use the native iso’s like 160, 80, 320,
640 which are really nice because they have less noise because they are negative digital
iso’s. Third thing for exposure is your going to want to leave your shutter speed at 2x
whatever your frame rate is. So if you have 24fps then you would set it to 50, if your
at 60fps your going to want to shoot at 125. Another thing is white-balance, white balance
is really important. It’s probably best just to set your white balance to white. Your going
to want your in-camera to be as white as possible, you can change the white balance in post if
you want. It’s a lot easier that way, then you can have whatever look you want. Another
thing, I use Highlight Tone Priority when I’m shooting video. It recovers a lot more
detail in highlights because it brings them down and I feel like this is really helpful
if you tend to overexpose, I use to overexpose a lot now I pay a lot more attention to the
histograms. One more thing, have fun with what you are
doing, your making videos, its what you love, and it’s fun for you, just keep with it, don’t
get discouraged, don’t let anyone tell you your bad at it. Keep at it and you’ll do great.

Camera Crash Course: Different Types of Digital Cameras


Hey everyone! It’s Nicki, and today we’re
going to be going over the different types of digital cameras that can be used for primarily
videography but also photography. These are not every single kind of digital camera that’s on the market; these are just the ones that I think are the most relevant to making online video. Also, I am not a professional photographer, videographer, or cinematographer; the
technical aspects of many of these cameras escape me (especially when it comes
to video), and the opinions expressed in this video are purely based on my research and limited
experience as a hobbyist photographer and videographer. With that out of the way, let’s get started! First up, we got point and shoots. Point and shoots, or compact cameras, before the
invention of iPhone cameras and other smartphone cameras, used to be the go-to
consumer cameras, and as such had a reputation for being a bit on the low end of the quality scale. Nowadays,
however, many companies have produced high quality point and shoots such as the Sony
RX100 or the Canon G7 X. Point and shoots are a great option if you want something lightweight
or compact (hence the name compact camera). The only downside, in my opinion, to compact cameras or point and shoots is that they don’t have interchangeable lenses; for
instance, myRX100 mkIV, it has a 24-70mm lens, which, for a lot of like portraits and that kind of stuff is great, but if you are really far away from something and want that extreme telephoto, it’s kinda useless. Though I think newer models of the RX100 go up to 200mm, so… [shrug] things are starting to change on that front as well. Another potential downside if you’re really on the full frame train is that basically all point and shoots have some sort of cropped sensor. Although Sony and Leica do offer full frame point and shoots… for over $3000 or $4000. Who… who the hell needs a full frame point and shoot… alright… um… Next up, we got action cameras. Action cameras, as their name would suggest,
are designed to be worn during sports or other activities such as biking or swimming.
These cameras are usually designed to be pretty durable, waterproof, and compact. They also tend to
have very wide lenses or even 360 degree lenses. These days, GoPro is basically synonymous
with action cameras, but other brands such as Drift and Rylo also have alternatives,
the latter offering a 360 degree camera. Action cameras can also be used for more mundane
things like travel or even vlogging; check out Caleb Wojcik’s GoPro vlogging setup
in the description below. Next we got camcorders, which is what this video is being filmed on. Technically speaking, a camcorder is any video camera that also records what it’s filming;
many professional cinematography cameras could be classified as camcorders (and we’ll get
to them later). However, most of the time when people use the term camcorder, the image
that forms is of a cylindrical camera with a fixed lens, a strap on the side, and
a flip out LCD screen. Prosumer camcorders are kind of falling out of fashion with the rise of
point and shoots, mirrorless cameras, and DSLRs with good video quality, but for hobbyists
out there who aren’t that interested in photography and want something a bit more
ergonomic for on-the-go filming (as well as cheaper!), camcorders could still be a good option. (Then
again, I just love my little Sony over here, so maybe I’m just biased.) Next up, bridge cameras. Speaking of cameras that have fallen out of
fashion, bridge cameras, as their name would suggest, are designed to
bridge the gap between consumer point and shoots and higher end mirrorless cameras/DSLRs.
Bridge cameras have a body similar to a DSLR, although it’s usually a bit more compact, but only have one
non-interchangeable lens. Some bridge cameras try to alleviate the issue of only having one lens
by having an absurd zoom range (for instance, the Sony RX10 mkIV has a 24-600mm lens, but it’s also about $1700 [actually
$1600]), but I personally think bridge cameras are kind of the worst of both worlds
rather than the best: they only have one lens, which is typically not very fast, usually around an f-stop of 4 at the minimum, and they are larger and heavier than point and shoots. They can be pretty convenient, though, so
if that’s what you’re looking for, go for it. Next up, we have MILCs and DSLRs. Comment down below how you pronounce MILC, whether you just say that, You say mirrorless camera, or, like me, you say “milk.” I’m very curious. These are the most commonly used cameras used by
professional photographers and, increasingly, indie videographers. Mirrorless interchangeable
lens cameras and digital single lens reflex cameras are technically two different categories,
but I’ve grouped them into one category because nowadays the only difference
between the two is how the image is projected into the viewfinder. DSLRs, as their name
would suggest, are digital versions of SLR cameras that use a mirror to project
an analog image into the viewfinder. DSLRs are able to change lenses, and while they
are the beefiest photography cameras on the market, they come in a wide variety of price ranges, depending mostly on the size of the sensor. MILCs take out the middleman
in DSLRs and instead of projecting an analog image into the viewfinder with a mirror, they
simply project a digital image. MILCs, like bridge cameras and point and shoots,
had a bit of a stigma when they first came out. They were considered amateur, especially
since none of them had full frame sensors. Now, though, they compete toe to toe with
DSLRs, although they’ll probably always be considered inferior by photography snobs.
Both MILCs and DSLRs have become increasingly good for video; the only downside to them
is that they usually have a maximum recording time, depending on the camera about 30 minutes, which is absurd. And they’re kind of big to lug around and vlog with, if that’s your thing. And last but not least, we get to professional video cameras. We just talked about top of the line
photography cameras that also happen to be good for video, so now it’s time we talk about top
of the line cinematography cameras. (Note the usage of the word “cinematography” rather than
“videography;” the former implies a much larger scale production than the latter.) These are
your REDs, your ALEXAs (and not the Amazon kind), your Genesises. I’ll be straight with you:
I know jack shit about these cameras. All I know is that a single part of most of these
cameras costs way more than all the other cameras on this list. In her video
“DO YOU WANT TO BUY A RED? maybe you should rent instead,” Kitty Peters goes over the
cost of her RED Helium 8K setup, which costs $59500. Yikes! Unless you’re a millionaire
or you’re willing to take out a loan on this kind of camera, you’re better off renting it.
But let’s be real; as of me filming this, there is ONE 8K monitor for computers on the market,
and very few 5K ones; unless you are making independent films or you anticipate that most of your viewers will be watching your videos on 5K or 8K
televisions, you’re probably good with just a HD or 4K camera. There is absolutely no need for you to need to shoot at such a high resolution. But that’s just my opinion. If you have 60K to burn by all means use it as a vlog
camera. Alright, that about does it. For me personally, I do love my little camcorder, although I do wish it had a full manual mode (which was my fault, it was an oversight when I was reading the specs). I do also have a point and shoot and a DSLR,
but neither of them shoot in 4K (and my little T3i, which is my DSLR, doesn’t have an autofocus in video mode, so it’s kind of impossible to shoot by yourself), so at this point in time I just use them for photography. (Well, what little photography I do.) I also happen to have a Hero 6 Black, which was a gift that I am trying to figure how to usutilize to its fullest potential. I may very well employ Caleb’s vlogging setup, who knows? Thanks so much for watching, and I’ll see you in the next video. Bye! Oh my God, it’s so frickin’ hot!

things that people weren’t happy about this is one of those cameras that’s just
the sweet spot giving you the most bang for your buck it gives you a full frame sensor in a
ton of other features I really reasonable price first of the
camera seen a bit of improvement we’ve had a dynamic range increase two stops with the camera which is nice
I do a lot a high dynamic range photography I was also doing some shooting out here
at night long exposure type stuff and be increased dynamic range
definitely helped with this camera it really work well the sensor inside
the camera that’s a really great value to be getting that type of processor the
EXPEED 3 in this camera body now you end up with
a full-frame 12 percent coverage when you look at it
the viewfinder it’s nice to be able to see all the way through their and no but you’re getting absolutely
