5 Reasons Why You Should NOT Buy a DSLR for Filmmaking

first_imgThinking about buying a new DSLR camera for video projects? Think again. Here are five reasons why videographers may want to avoid DSLRs.Top image via ShutterstockOver the last few years, DSLRs have slowly become overshadowed by their mirrorless camera counterparts. While professional photographers may disagree, mirrorless cameras have many advantages over DSLRs that make them great choices for indie filmmakers and video professionals. Don’t believe me? Here are a few reasons why you should not buy a DSLR next time you purchase a camera for video production.1. DSLRs Are OverpricedImage via Android AuthorityDSLR cameras are incredibly overpriced. Dollar for dollar, you’re going to spend almost double on a DSLR camera compared to a mirrorless camera. This is usually because DSLR cameras come from tried-and-true photography camera manufacturers like Canon and Nikon, whereas mirrorless cameras tend to come from companies that are not quite as accepted in the pro photography community, like Panasonic and Sony.As an example, you can purchase a brand new Panasonic GH4 for about $1,200 online. A GH4 will have 4k recording capabilities and give you the ability to shoot multiple recording formats. However, the comparable Canon 5D Mark III goes for about $2,200 and can’t record video in 4K. While the 5D Mark III is good for photography, it has to be hacked with Magic Lantern in order to access its full video functionalities. This inevitably leads to annoyances on set and in the editing bay.2. DSLRs Are BulkyImage via Photography ConcentrateWhen it comes to filmmaking, camera size doesn’t typically matter. At the end of the day, it comes down to the quality of footage you’re getting. However, there’s something to be said about shooting on a highly portable camera, especially at weddings and other live events. If you’re going to be shooting all day on a shoulder rig, Glidecam, or Steadicam, you probably don’t want to be using a gigantic camera like the URSA mini or even a larger DSLR.This is where mirrorless cameras come into play. Because mirrorless cameras don’t have a mirror-box mechanism, they’re smaller and lighter than their DSLR counterparts.  This will make it much easier on your arms if you’re shooting for long periods of time.3. Mirrorless Cameras Are More RevolutionaryImage via B&HThere was a time when DSLR cameras were at the cutting edge of camera technology — but that’s no longer the case. Mirrorless camera manufacturers are capable of updating their cameras much quicker than DSLR camera manufacturers.Just look at the Sony a7S series of cameras. In a little over a year, Sony was able to create the a7S, a truly revolutionary low-light camera, and create a second version that added 4k recording and increased frame rates. Canon and Nikon, on the other hand, have been very slow to update their cameras. For example, the Canon 5D Mark III hasn’t been updated in over four years.4. Mirrorless Cameras Are FasterImage via ShutterstockThe interface on mirrorless cameras tends to be much faster to use than the interface found on DSLRs. In general, whenever you want to shoot on a mirrorless camera, you can be up and running in just a matter of seconds. However, to go from powering up to recording video on a DSLR, it’s typically going to take you longer. While this isn’t that big of a deal when shooting a narrative film, it could be the difference between getting that perfect shot or missing it completely when shooting a documentary.5. DSLRs FORCE You to Watch Video on an LCD ScreenImage via ShutterstockBy their very nature, DSLR cameras will not allow you to look through the viewfinder when recording video. This is because the mirror-box mechanism of a DSLR has to lift up and block the viewfinder from seeing what’s coming through the lens. This probably doesn’t make much of a difference if you’re shooting indoors — but on a sunny day, you might have a difficult time seeing what’s on your screen. This is where mirrorless cameras begin to shine.On a mirrorless camera, you can simply look through the viewfinder or the LCD screen. DSLRs, on the other hand, only show you what’s coming through your lens when looking through the viewfinder, and not what’s hitting the camera sensor. This is usually a bigger deal when shooting photography, but if you read this blog, chances are you probably shoot a little photography as well.Do you still prefer to shoot on DSLRs or have mirrorless cameras become your tool of choice? Please share your thoughts in the comments below!last_img read more

Modi remembers Chhattisgarh’s Kunwar Bai on Women’s Day

first_imgPrime Minister Narendra Modi said several women had left an “indelible mark in the history of mankind” through their “exemplary deeds” and paid tribute to the late Kunwar Bai, the mascot of his flagship Clean India mission.In his Twitter posts, the prime minister also urged people to write about women who had inspired them and use the hash tag ‘#SheInspiresMe’.Through their exemplary deeds, several women have left an indelible mark in the history of humankind. They continue to inspire generations. I urge you to write about some women who inspire you. #SheInspiresMe, Modi tweeted on International Women’s Day. Lauding Kunwar Bai, who passed away at the age of 106 earlier this year, the prime minister said she sold her goats, reportedly her only asset, to build two toilets at her home in Chhattisgarh’s Kotabharri village. Her contribution towards Swachh Bharat (Clean India) cannot be forgotten , he said I will always cherish the time when I had the opportunity to seek Kunwar Bai’s blessings during one of my visits to Chhattisgarh. Kunwar Bai lives on in the hearts and minds of all those who are passionate towards fulfilling Bapu’s dream of a clean India. #SheInspiresMe, he added. The prime minister also shared photographs and a video clip of him felicitating Kunwar Bai during a programme in the state two years ago.last_img read more

The content is provided for information purposes only.center_img SIS is an existing technique, used in directed self-assembly (DSA) and now applied in EUV lithography, in which the photoresist is infiltrated with an inorganic element to make it harder and more robust, thereby enhancing the patterning performance on different parameters. Imec and partners show the first comparison between an EUVL-SIS and a standard EUVL patterning process demonstrating the benefits of SIS regarding roughness, nano-failure mitigation and local variability. When adding an SIS step during a full pattern transfer in a TiN layer, imec observed a improvement of 60 percent for intrafield local critical dimension uniformity (LCDU) and 10 percent for line edge roughness compared to a reference process. These patterning enhancements are inherent properties of SIS. Also, the number of nanobreaks – a typical stochastic nano-failure – is reduced by at least one order of magnitude. Results were confirmed in an industrial relevant use case, showing reduced defectivity in a logic chip with a 20 percent smaller tip-to-tip critical dimension at a similar LCDU as a standard EUVL process.The improvement SIS showcases on all parameters is indebted to imec’s EUV lithography and metrology infrastructure and recent advancements in the field of process control, material and etch research. The current work brings these results and competences together in one paper, establishing SIS as a significant EUV patterning enhancement technique. The progress on each of the integrated aspects and SIS will be presented on the SPIE Advanced Lithography conference in multiple papers.The work was performed in collaboration with ASM and ASML.”The recent achievements with SIS for EUV lithography were enabled by the progress imec and its partners have made in various domains such as materials science, deposition, imaging, and metrology. This is a great example of how the integration of knowledge and combined efforts from multiple domains and ecosystem partners will enable a path to scale to N3 and beyond,” said Greg McIntyre, director of advanced patterning at imec. his week, at the SPIE Advanced Lithography conference 2019, imec, a world-leading research and innovation hub in nanoelectronics and digital technologies, demonstrates the positive impact of sequential infiltration synthesis (SIS) on the EUVL (extreme ultra-violet lithography) patterning process. This post-lithography technique is shown to significantly reduce stochastic nano-failures and line roughness, contributing to the introduction of EUVL patterning of future nodes”. This work integrates recent advancements on metrology and etch, and on material developments, which will be presented in multiple papers at this week’s 2019 SPIE Advanced Lithography Conference.
