VIDEO: Davis Guggenheim and his use of the JVC HD100 in "An Inconvenient Truth"
Davis won the 2007 Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature about Al Gore's slide-show presentation on the global warming crisis. Davis talks about how he shot about 1/3 of his award winning documentary with the JVC HD100.
We are shortly to produce a short movie and I can see from this video that you HOLD the JVC hdpro 100 near to your heart,but a friend of mine told me about the CANON XL-H1, I dont know if you have used this camera ,we are not sure which to buy,one other thing our camera man is straight out of film school hes has worked with smaller cameras though hes quick to learn,does this create a problem in choosing one of these cameras ?..Thanks
Each of the big camera companies has positioned their cameras a little differently against each other. (Panasonic, JVC, Sony, Canon, and now Red) The key is to find out which features you like, and ultimately which look, camera design, camera weight, available accessories, workflow, and format, you like.
