When did you start filming video professionally. Professionally I started around 2004, mainly doing music videos. Tilt–shift photography. Tilt–shift photography is the use of camera movements on small- and medium-format cameras, and sometimes specifically refers to the use of tilt for selective focus, often for simulating a miniature scene.

Tilt–shift photography

Sometimes the term is used when the large depth of field is simulated with digital post-processing; the name may derive from a perspective control lens (or tilt–shift lens) normally required when the effect is produced optically. Sensor size explained. At the heart of every digital camera is a light-sensitive silicon chip called a sensor. The sensor takes the place of film for recording images. The size of these rectangular chips varies depending on the type of camera. In small compact cameras the sensors are relatively tiny, sometimes no larger than the size of the fingernail on someone's little finger. Why NASA don't use Canon: Canon EOS-1D / 5D / 6D Talk Forum: Digital Photogra... There have been a few threads over the years about what cameras NASA take into space and why. So when an opportunity arose, I had to take it: I was doing a subcontracting job at NASA last week and I got speaking to a guy in Image Analysis. I told him I was most interested in the cameras being used for shuttle missions and on the ISS.

The guy told me they use Kodak and Nikon DSLRs and Nikkor lenses exclusively. Normal lens. In photography and cinematography, a normal lens is a lens that reproduces a field of view that appears "natural" to a human observer. However, to find a photographic lens equivalent to the human eye, which has an effective focal length of approximately 17mm,[1] is problematic due to the nature of human binocular vision, being mediated and processed by the cortex, and because of the structure of the human eye which has a concave retina, rather than a flat sensor, with variable sensitivity and resolution across its wider-than-180° horizontal field-of-view.

A normal lens then, is one that renders a printed (or otherwise displayed) photograph of a scene that when held at 'normal' viewing distance (usually arms-length) in front of the original scene and viewed with one eye, matches the real-world and the rendered perspective.[2] Perspective effects of short or long focal-length lenses[edit] 'Normal' lenses vary for different formats[edit] Typical normal focal lengths for different formats[edit]

Circle of confusion. Film format. A film format is a technical definition of a set of standard characteristics regarding image capture on photographic film, for either stills or filmmaking.
