First thread of 2020 edition
All video related questions and discussion is intended for this thread. Here we discuss techniques, gear and anything else related to capturing video footage. Please don't pretend to be an expert if you don't know what you're talking about. Kindly leave your ego at the door.
Posting short films/scripts or other work you've done is encouraged.
We tend to use and recommend DSLRs/mirrorless cameras because they provide phenomenal picture quality for their price, have large sensors (ie the same size used in high-end cinema cameras and higher) and have interchangeable lenses.
In contrast, consumer camcorders normally have much smaller sensors and a fixed lens.

Can we cool it with the argument over dual native iso? No one gives a shit

Quick FAQS
>what’s the best camera available on a “budget”?
The blackmagic pocket cinema camera 4k, by a considerable margin
>>what’s a good beginner video camera?
Buy a used canon m50
>Can I use a zoom lens for video?
>Do I need cine lenses?
>Where can I find a good 4k lens?
Anywhere. Your stills have a much higher resolution than 4k. 4k lenses are a meme
>Do I need 4k?
No. It will make your footage look sharper if it’s in focus, and it gives you breathing room in post. But 1080p is still absolutely fine
>why isn't the op pic christmas related?
Fuck you
>something something panasonic something something
That's great buddy

Sup /p/, your boy went to the Rolex 24 and got garage passes. I will update this thread as I get through everything. If you like cars and haven't done Rolex 24, you're a fucking commie. Holy shit I hurt all over, but it was worth it. It's going to be a bit before I get through everything.

Any trail runners have recommendations for camera straps or holsters for a mirrorless with smallish lens? I am hearing good things online about Peak Performance.

Hi /p/, it's been a while. Haven't gotten around to a lot of photography in the last two years but I recently did a trip to Ladakh, a region in the Himalaya in northern India, and travel and novel surroundings always gets motivated to shoot. So I thought I'd share.

I grouped my shots semi-chronologically and thematically, starting with the next one.
