shooting DV
on Apr 18, 2007 at 9:57:21 pm

Hi Everyone.

I am basically trying to decide what best camera to use for my shooting. I am creating a TV commercial and will be entirely shoot inside a white infinite studio. I will be filming three characters dressed in white war uniforms, the camera will fly from one character to the next.

I have been told that the sony HVR-Z1U camera can do the job. Do you think this is the right camera to use? Will the whites look fine? Will I be able to make this look like film? Do you recommend other cameras to use instead like the XL1s or the panasonic AG-HVX200?

Your advice will be very appreciated.

I would not use the HVR. I own one and whenever I use it to shoot with white backgrounds it drives me crazy. I still haven't figured it out yet, but when I shoot say a talking head in front of a white seamless, the gammas go go goofy. The camera sensors see all the white and clmap the gammas so I cannot get a proper exposure or black to white spread. Enven when I use manual iris.

I would go with Panasonic 200.
