PHOTOGRAPHY AND FILM - the DSLR revolution

It was just a few years ago, when the first digital single-lens reflex cameras capable of shooting video came out. A few years later, this apparently insignificant additional feature turns out to be an earthquake, a little revolution for the film and photography sectors. As a matter of fact, the quality of the video-image that can be achieved with a DSLR resembles much more that of professional film cameras than that of professional videocameras.

The reasons for this are twofold. On one hand, built-in DSLR sensors are about 10 times bigger than the professional-videocamera equivalent. On the other, DSLRs also benefit from a broader choice of high-quality, light-sensitive lenses (coming from the well-established market of photocameras) which cost a fraction of the extremely expensive lenses for film- and video-cameras.

These two aspects, combined with adequate technical skills and equipment, ensure very shallow depth of field, awesome sensibility in low-light situations, vivid colors and an overall extremely sharp, contrasty and noise-free digitaI image. Which, after a savvy post-production, can achieve that typical film-look that only ten times more expensive filmcameras can achieve.

As a result, the worlds of photography and film have gotten closer to each other just like they were in the early days of cinema. Shooting amazing looking pictures and videos with one single camera (and on a budget), is nowadays a reality.

I belong to those filmmakers that embraced this revolution. Despite audiovisual production being my main focus (see more at www.corsini.tv), taking advantage of a carefully selected network of professionals, I also conceive, develop and produce visual communication campaigns that also encompass photography.
