Firmware and Cool Software
I have gotten a lot of questions about the Canon Dslr and the Hacks available for their firmware. I could write about it or I could just allow this guy to explain it too you. Trust me he is far better at it that I would be.
Here is a great 9 minute tutorial on how it is done.
Let’s try to keep our eyes on the real prize here guys and that is that the camera is only one part of the film making universe. You can make a great film with any camera that shoots 24p or even 30p if you learn how to light properly. Let’s remember that we are constructing a visual world. The lighting that you select along with the setting will be more important than the camera itself. Hitchcock once said that film is a glimpse into a world and not thee world.
In the case of your film it will be the world that you have created. This created world is much like our world, it is a world of light and shadows. What we allow the audience to see and what we keep hidden.
The tools that you select to edit will be as important as your camera. If you can afford the higher end editing software then go for it. But if you are a micro to no budget filmmaker like myself I would suggest something like Sony Vegas Pro 11. The price is pretty fair for the quality of the software. Features have been cut and edited using this software. If it is still too expensive then you can drop down to Sony Vegas 9 or 10 which you can pick up on Ebay cheap. Given the choice I would go with pro 11 directly from Sony because you will have all the updates easily available along with the fact that when they upgrade to 12 or higher you can buy the upgrades at a discount.
Here is a look at some footage altered using Sony Vegas 9 and then a brief review of Sony Vegas pro 11.
