It's totally "un-doable" because you, personally, do not have the experience to do it. And all the techinical stuff (single-cam, T2i limitations, sound, etc.). But really...Are you saying that a wedding is just totally un-doable with a DSLR cause it's not run and gun enough?
This guy was asking:Who are they asking about ISO and depth of field?
A couple of people asked me to shoot their wedding videos, but I am reluctant to do it on a DSLR (which is all I have now), because of the shallow DOF. Since most weddings are done in low lit interiors I would either have to keep the aperture wide open, in which case i can only have a couple of people in focus at a time, and have to pick and choose...
Or I can shoot around f8, and have the ISO way up at 6400, and take out the noise later. Cause that way, I won't have to worry about not everyone being in focus. Since it's a live event, I cannot plan the focus pulling ahead of time, of course, so I was wondering, if anyone had any advice on how to shoot such a live event on a DSLR?
The problem is with user error, not the fact that it's a DSLR. I have shot several live music events with a DSLR. They come out great because I don't use my camera as an excuse, I own lenses I know I can get good results with and I have years of experience meaning I know what I'm doing. Stop using your camera as an excuse. "Oh but the time limitation" well why are you only filming with one camera? At the bare minimum for a live event there should be two cameras and it should be timed so that during the ten seconds where you start a new file, the other camera is still rolling - so in the edit there's no pause or jump cut.As for sound being a limitation, I already have a field recorder and different mics, so I think I got the sound covered, and it's just the video limitations in the DSLR, that's a problem.
Definitely lol. Was in talks regarding getting an Alexa, mini or Amira yesterday. Still a year or so away. By then, there'll probably be an alternative worth considering."Or should I have bought the Alexa Mini instead?"
The unconscious incompetent. The aim to grow is to become the conscious incompetent. Only at that point does the subject gain a chance to improve.people who don't know what they are doing often don't know they don't know what they are doing.
That's what I love about you. The eternal optimist. Are you sure his hit rate is that high? I think 1 chance in a hundred is generous.draw the wrong conclusions about 99% of the time.
