The blog posting and comment thread over at “Documentary Tech’s” really provide a solid reason to quit chasing technology and use the tools at your disposal to create something compelling.
In my work, shooting Canon t2i DSLR video has been life changing in the vision of my work. I’ve also come to understand why now broadcast is still stuck with using small sensor vidcams. Noticed over the weekend at some shows that being able to have everything in focus can save your bacon if you haven’t nailed the focus. But it also looks boring – at least to me it does.
These tools are just that – tools. It’s the operator, the eye behind the tool, that creates the vision.
