FROM 50MM TO 28MM
It’s interesting when you think about it. In the 1950s and before that, people saw the world with what artists called a “normal” perspective. It resembled a 50mm focal length composition for full-frame 35mm format photographers.

IT’S ONLY A MATTER OF GOING
From this day forward, all images on this site will be 550 pixels or wider, so you can better see the differences in quality.

A simple car shoot video rig is ideally compact, lightweight, and easy to use. It’s also hopefully not too expensive. After all, it’s your vision and message that will determine the success of any film more than anything else.
Whatever rig you choose, you don’t really want to compromise much on quality – for the camera, the lens, monitor or the audio mic. Continue reading “”
