Digital Cinema Society Examines Digital Still Cameras at Digital Video Expo
Digital Video Expo attendees are invited to attend the Digital Cinema Society event "Digital Still Cameras for Motion Picture Production" — to be held at the Expo on September 23 at 5:00 PM at the Pasadena Convention Center — as they explore the video capabilities of the Canon 5D MkII and the Lumix GH1 hybrid digital still cameras.
DCS Northern California Chapter President Simon Sommerfeld will moderate the event and will discuss his experiences shooting a spec spot with the Canon 5D MkII and its post production workflow.
Tim Smith of Canon will be present to answer questions about the 5D MkII and will give a detailed tour of the camera system; he will also be showing footage from the 5D MkII and discussing how the camera is being used in major production environments.
Illya Friedman of HotRod Cameras will be presenting the Panasonic Lumix GH1 and showing footage from the camera. Illya, working with Abel Cine Tech, is at the forefront of using this camera in cine-style shooting and will demonstrate how the camera can be adapted for use with PL mount cine-lens systems.
In addition, Brian Valente of Redrock Micro will show some of the gear his company has developed to help bridge the gap for using these cameras in a professional motion environment.
