Film production at this time not always uses standard video cameras. Many filmmakers use Digital SLR camera as an image recording device. Canon has unveiled this year’s EOS 5D Mark III DSLR Camera as a successor to the popularity of the previous series of EOS 5D Mark II.
Canon EOS DSLR is essentially for the purposes of photography, but since the generation of EOS 5D Mark II has become a tool often used by professional film makers. With the various features of the EOS 5D Mark III seems cinematography fans will be spoiled with the results that have a maximum quality.
The 5D Mark III features an improved 36 x 24mm full-frame CMOS sensor with approximately 22.3 effective mega pixels. By using a new gapless microlens array and improved photo diodes, this camera has an improved standard ISO sensitivity of 100 – 25,600 (expandable up to L:50, H1:51,200, H2:102,400). This balance of ISO sensitivity and high signal-to noise (S/N) ratio, as well as a new customizable “Auto ISO” function, grants photographers freedom of expression in low-light conditions.
This camera has a 16:9 aspect ratio for full High Definition Movie and HD quality movie recording up to 60p. This is very useful for shooting slow motion. Sensors used in EOS 5D Mark III is an innovation of the previous generation that could eliminate moire effects during shooting. Another is the ability of this camera allows to capture objects in low light levels, this is the result of an increase in the ratio S / N by the DIGIC 5+ processor.
As I have argued that today’s film industry has not stuck with a particular camera model, many filmmakers use Digital SLR camera and smartphone to make the film. So the choice is now up to other filmmakers to use the type of camera as you wish.
