Pro video blog…Produced by Philip Johnston DoP/Editor


As you can see for yourself all these Hi-end camcorders are built like tanks and look like them, they are also heavy so it’s not surprising there is a market for cameras like the Canon 5D Mk11, 7D…Nikon 300s and the Panasonic GH1. Now no one is kidding themselves I realise the sheer difference in quality between the SLRs and Hi-end is streets apart but if you are looking for the shallow DoF you can get some great results from the SLR.

If you get a chance to look at the PDF above notice the good old Sony EX1 and 3 are part of the comparison list…this is a tribute to Sony who against all the odds decided the EX range was all about quality !


Having been working in the video business since 1988 I have amassed a great amount of knowledge of both the kit and production values over the last 30 years.
