At work we got Arri SR2/SR3 16mm, some bolex's, and a Arri 535B 35mm camera. The 535B rents for pretty cheap, like 75/day while the bolex's rent for like 20/day

We got some members who rent them out quite regularly and we maintenance the cameras or send them out to get serviced when need be.

>>2714603
Just off the top of my head as an example, a weekend rate on a Bolex is $30, and say you get 2 stocks of film which will run you about $40-50. If you want a projection transfer that is roughly just the cost of renting a 16mm projector which is about $5 or you can use an optical printer by the hour which can vary in price.

For developing you can either send it off which will cost a bit, or do it your self if you have the chemicals or access to them.

This is pretty subjective for where I live though since most of this stuff you can do for pretty cheap or almost no cost.

>>
>>2714665

So again you've completely avoided costing how much developing and scanning film is because you know it's cost prohibitive compared to digital.
>>
>>2714830
Looking at a recent invoice, 16mm developing from Niagara Customs Lab was about $144 with development and shipping. I'm not >>2714418 though I was just throwing in some numbers. Not sure how much scans are from the post studio here. Where I work is DIY so if you shot your 16mm you can use the dark room to develop it yourself and get a 2k scan for free, you just have to learn to do it yourself with the tools your given.

The cheapest way to go that I can roughly calculate shooting film (at least here shooting 16mm) is about $30 for a camera rental then $22 for a roll of black and white film, developing and scanning yourself. So I think like >>2714418 was getting at is there are ways to do it for pretty cheap if you can find the support/ infrastructure that supports it. Luckily here we have a really good film co-op to give others the tools to do it.
>>
Shooting film today as someone with not a ton of money to blow on producing something of actual value is good for two things: Novelty and impressing other hipster fgts. An audience doesnt give a shit if something is shot on film, and audiences will be the ones paying your bills as a filmmaker, not Joey Lumbersexual. Nor will that audience be able to tell the difference between actual film stock grain and an overlay.

You wanna shoot film? Cool, wait till you can muster up a big budget and you got your licks in with digital and know how to at least make something good before you go wasting money on stock.

>implying hipster fgts aren't the audience
>>
>>2714603

Thanks for calling me a moron, really love the polite discourse that happens on this board. I haven't avoided anything, I've just been away for a few days. I did briefly touch on why it's cheaper: "Kodak are trying to revive film" - I'll explain:

Unlike most people in these threads I actually shoot stuff for a living. I have priced up camera packages for indie shorts I've done in the last year and with Kodak's Independent Production Package program they can tailor a whole package to your budget (within reason). I found shooting 16mm to be actually cheaper than shooting Alexa, and friends tell me they also made 35mm workable as well. Thanks to this program and a similar one fuji did a few years ago there is a resurgence of people shooting film, which is great. Even if you don't think you would ever use it it's just another tool in the arsenal available for everyone, how can that be a bad thing?

So whatever you think about shooting film the cost isn't the biggest issue.

It's really sad that so many people just write off shooting film as:
>Novelty and impressing other hipster fgts.

It's just another way of making a movie, don't get so bitter about it.
>>
>>2714872

You're right, the audience mostly won't care if it's shot on film or not, it usually is the DoP/Director pushing it for their own gratification. But as I've explained in another comment it can be a economical choice as well as appeasing your inner "hipster fgt".

I would bet money that everybody in this thread hating on film has never worked with it.
>>
>>2714872
Most people I know who shoot on film are either the old fucks who've been doing it for over 30 years, or they're people who are interested in the process and want to try something the hard way. Not all filmmakers are in it to make money, they do it for themselves.
>>

>>2715234

it will work fine for aperture control, which is all you need. even metabones on the a6000 isnt great for AF. Go for it, I jumped to the a6000 and love it, actually turned down a trade for a bmpcc + speedbooster for it because the ease of use trumped the IQ for me.

picking up a speedbooster for the a6000 is worth it though, as its not a great low-light shooter-- I'd recommend trying to find a metabones one on CL or ebay for under 300 if you can, as they maintain IS for your canon lenses.

I'd like to say s16 is roughly 2x more expensive. You can get rolls of super 8 for like $15-20 and get them batch developed for cheaper as well.

Honestly the cheapest route I've found is to shoot black and white, develop it yourself, and do a projection transfer. Obviously it won't be the best quality on the transfer since you're filming a projection screen, but if it's 8mm the difference is almost negligible. Highly recommend shooting super 8 tri-x.

wrong

so many photographers on /p/ shoot film because the results are different. The fact that so many people think moving image is any different is the reason we are bombarded with dull/flat looking films lately.

Sure the audience haven't got a clue what camera is used, nor do they give a fuck, but they know what looks shit and what looks good. The kind of dp's (old or young) that make a conscious decision between film and digital are more than often choosing whats right for the look of film and will have great image making at the forefront of their decision.

Anyone who rents red's, arri's, even c300's with decent glass is well within the budget of shooting 16mm.

To shoe it off as hipster, too expensive or too difficult is just plain lazy for anyone shooting drama in the professional world (or trying to break into it).

Is there a way to export to ProRes from Premiere and/or DaVinci on Windows?

ProRes has a 10-bit color space, whereas DNxHD has an 8-bit color space.

Footage I shoot is from a Canon DSLR, so I know for a fact that footage is 8-bit. However, after I do the corrections and compositions, it should be better to export to 10-bit.

There is DNxHD 175 for 10-bit, but that is way too high a bitrate in my opinion, granted the only thing I can think of if I have to do it this way is to export to this and convert it to ProRes in AnotherGUI. I would like to export to ProRes (or a 10-bit version of DNxHD with a lower bitrate) though.

Any ideas?

>what's so good about a GH4 over a Canon or Nikon DSLR?
Generally speaking, it has greater recording resolution, no time limit, and the sensor doesn't heat up and generate more noise the same way that DSLR sensors do. It also outputs 10bit 422 from it's HDMI for ProRes recording via an external recorder like an atomos or odyssey. Another pro is the short flange distance of the mft mount, which means adapting Canikon lenses is easy as shit. It's also smaller and lighter than a DSLR like a 5dicks mark II/III or D800/810, which means it'll be lighter for shoulder use once it's rigged up. Of course it has it's cons(lots of people say it's image looks too video-ey, making it hard to properly emulate film tones) but many of them are subjective. Every now and then you'll hear some artist rage about it's sensor size, but that''s pretty much a baseless complaint with the existence of speed boosters, as they allow the camera to effectively become a super-35mm camera. For it's price, it's a very good product. Also, anamorphic support.

Noob question here.

If i have a camera that can record at 40mbs and in shooting at 24 FPS, that FPS set what i can sample per second right.

So when i set the shutter, what exactly am i changing. I know physically in film cameras there was a rotary shutter, and that angle of that shutter changed how much motion blur there was, but what is a digital camera doing when you set the shutter speed higher or lower. In theory its changing the angle of the imaginary rotary shutter that isn't there. But in reality what is the camera doing?
>>
>>2720052

40MB/s is completely irrelevant to what you're asking.

You could Google this very easily, why haven't you?

Generally speaking you want to keep your shutter at double your FPS, so 24FPS = 1/48 Shutter. This is known as a 180 degree shutter which is terminology from film cameras which had rotating shutters. This gives the movement in your video a slight blur which we have all come to accept as "cinematic". Only change from this rule if you know what effect you are trying to achieve.

Seriously, why haven't you looked this up you lazy shit?
>>
>>2720052

Sorry, just realised you asked what the camera was physically doing. It depends on the sensor but its either a rolling shutter which scans the pixels on sensor from top to bottom or a global shutter which captures every pixel at once. The timing of the capture of these pixels is determined by your shutter speed.
>>
So /vid/, how would you go about doing a promo for a sports club? One which shows off the sport as well as the club.

Trying to think of a way to do it so that it has a polished look and feel without seeming too over the top. Seems like most club promo videos are quite tacky so want to avoid that.

Basically, do any of you know any examples of good promo vids, or some pitfalls to avoid?

It's like >>2720949 said, you're better off using stills lenses with aperture rings for video. Changing it in camera is not the best way to do it anyway, since it often steps down, which you can clearly see in the recording, and it makes fine adjustments virtually impossible. It's the reason Canon mount lenses(save for ones with manual aperture) aren't recommended for video use.

What are some nice legs and fluid head combos for a documentary kit?

I'm looking for a relatively light set of legs with good height, and a decent fluid head to put on it. A set of legs designed with photographers in mind would work better, I think.

I'm mostly new to this, and most of the articles I come across aren't very helpful, as they mostly recommend a bunch of heavy video oriented tripod sets which would be too heavy to carry.

Either direct suggestions or links to helpful articles would be very much appreciated. Thanks!

You can save all your clips in a single project file OR render them individually. Rendering all of them at once will of course take a lot longer. Rendering one at a time would be faster and involve a bit less mucking around. Still, if you have time to waste you should probably do all of them at once as a montage. Vegas has some good tools to help you trim everything so it looks nice and coherent. Sorry for the late answer.

ok /vid/ I'm going to start filming weddings again for money. I haven't kept up with gear in awhile so I need your help. heres what I need
3 cameras
3 lenses
monopod
shotgun mic

lets say I have a $2500-$3000 budget for everything, what would you recommend?
>>
>>2721754
Man with this budget you'll need to really stretch it. You'll get 2 cameras tops, and they won't be good in low light (which you will NEED unless you buy lighting) unless you get a really fast prime, which can run you up to 1k. Mic and monopod together will be around 600.

I have a Nikon D5300 and was looking at upgrading to a GH4 with a metabones adapter to nikon

Anyone had experience with the Sigma 18-35mm 1.8?
>>
>>2721890

Yeah, it's a pretty tasty lens. Used it on a couple of shoots, my only criticism is it's maybe too sharp!
>>
>>2721771
a6000 shooter here-- the monopod i use is the sirui p-224s, its real great.

for lenses, theres two routes: Native, or adapted. For native lenses: get the 18-105 PZ f/4, the 50 1.8 OSS, and maybe the 12mm 2.0 rokinon set to infinity?

If you go adapted-- grab a metabones speedbooster (EF), a 24-105L, the 35mm f/2 IS, and a 100 2.8 Macro L IS.

For both of these outfits-- you obviously dont need all IS lenses, but its always good for handheld work. the f/4 zooms should be able to be the main workhorses for handheld, and you can just use fast vintage manual primes alongside those.
>>
>>2722216
>>2721785
>>2721787

as for audio: external is your best bet, though they sell a bluetooth adapter for the a6000 hotshoe that pairs well with a lav, and a decent enough stereo condenser mic that goes in the hotshoe as well.

I shoot Nikon and one of the main things about their sub-prosumer level cameras is that their low light can be rather poor. With some lighting you've got gold, and even with some proper grading you can get rid of enough noise to have an usable grain, but otherwise you'll need a really fast prime and some lighting.

The t'pod works pretty good for the camera I have (which is a bit heavy once all equipment is hooked up) it's held together with magnets and requires the clips to assure that the cam doesn't come disconnected. I'm not sure about the knock-off but for that price it's worth a shot.

Not really. Standard definition lenses produce a fuzzier image than if you would produce a downscaled video from an HD camera because the latter have sharper lenses. Noise is prominent and there are color shifts, like blue fringing in high-light areas (this article explains it https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Purple_fringing). The dynamic range is also somewhere between 6-7 stops, expect highlights to be clipped.

It's great if you need a run and gun camera that can be held on a shoulder. It's lightweight compared to modern cameras that appeal to same-format (light shoulder camera that isn't full blown ENG). The body is very rigid, it can definitely take a beating.

Been using pic related for photos and internal recording, it works great. 2 questions:

Is it possible and a good idea to use it as a webcam through the mini HDMI port? Ideally 1080p. I have a laptop with HDMI in. I know it sounds like overkill but most webcams I have tried are shit for regular indoor light without extra lighting, even the "higher end" ones most streamers use. Would the video go into my laptop as another webcam feed?

2nd question is not entirely video related. Is it a good idea to just leave the camera in silent mode? I haven't found any function I use locked out under that mode. I have never used mirrorless cameras before, and it sounds like silent mode has no real down sides compared to limited function on DSLRs.

T2i or T3i. Modify it and it has great quality. Get Tragiclantern too. Magic's crap in comparison. If you're willing to spend more money get a VAF-TXi. Send the DSLR to like Phototech (If need be) to get the shutter replaced to use Digital lenses with the filter. Also don't worry about the Error 20 coming back. May pop up a couple of times, but stops after like I'd say... 1-6. Get Visiontech, Visioncolor, or Cinelook. Don't go for plebish Cinestyle. That's worse than Neutral. Also to spice things up where I'm about to go, get an FX HD/TV 1/2 filter.
>>
>>2731431
>Get Tragiclantern too. Magic's crap in comparison.
where did you come from buddy, early 2014?
Tragic lantern is over for a long time now, basically it was a distro thrown together by 1% integrating all the halfway done features.
The latest rolling release is the answer, if ML.
>>2731362
An EOS M is a cheaper investment then, but quite frankly you should save up a tad more and buy a Sony A6000.
The rebels were great, but aged pretty badly, I know because I have one - noisy senor with disgustingline skipping (moire and aliasing issues) and a terribly soft codec. That's what this snake oil salesman is trying to sell you.
>>
>>2731451
I bumped 2014 to 2015 with the FX HD/TV 1/2 Filter and soon Tiffen VND filter using a specific mattebox.
>>
>>2731489
and how does that help the issues I mentioned above?
>>
>>2731513
A lot actually. Tragiclantern gives Full HD uncompressed H.264, The VAF-TXi also fixes up the moire, the Visiontech helps with the noise, and the FX HD/TV with everything else. Maybe it never got tested and I'm about to. But that's how you get rid of the issues. You can doubt it if you want. By stacking those things together I believe you'll get good resulting footage.
>>
>>2731573
And sending it over to Phototech helps with the compatibility lens issue with the VAF-TXi. It isn't rocket science, I mean really.
>>
>>2713785

I'm between either sucking it up and buying some super8 film for my grandmother's old camera -- or, a Canon T2i. I can probably find the 200-300 bucks to make it to the T2i within a few months. I just want to get started with the whole affair, I want to practice and perhaps shoot one of my shorter scripts without too much initial investment in the gear.

Is the T2i good enough for amateur material? It's coming down to me doing the research and realizing I have little idea what I'm looking at. T2i looks like it's the oldest/cheapest I can do without garbage. Any help would be appreciated.

Well I looked again and a Rebel T5 looks like it's a bit much but I can work towards that, just might be until Summer. Gives me more time to read and write anyways.

So, how's the T5 with that Magic Lantern thing for basic filming? Both for some formal experiments while I learn the ropes and some actual extremely low budget films?
>>
>>2731584
Yeah it is. Better than a cellphone. You could also get a T3i.
>>
>>2731600
Don't know much about that... In terms of Canon stuff the best are the T2i, T3i, 6D, 7D, 5D Mark II, 5D Mark III, 60D, EOS-M, C100 MK I and MK II, C300 MK I and MK II, C500, MK I and MK II. At the cheap level you want flexibility.
>>
>>2731602

yeah cellphone was what I was suggested by a friend, but I had to shut that one down because I knew up front that I can't do shit with that unless I'm doing some afghani pizza roll factory union bust documentary that I can classify as an intentional "art film" aesthetic

which I can't, I'm working with a script that reeks of Henrik Ibsen that I wrote so it's gotta be watchable

>Full HD uncompressed H.264
What does this even mean? You either take a video stream and compress it into a codec or you are shooting raw. What you are saying simply does not make any sense.

If the mystical Tragic Lantern feature (from 2013, because that is the last time it has been updated) you're talking about the 3x compression rate variable then I have 2 news for you:
It's been in ML for around 2 years now and it doesn't do shit for image quality, only makes the files bigger.

but check the recommendations anyways. This guy has been just recommending you to get a 6D which is a terrible choice for video, check this video sample:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=De_nuFtg8Ac
This shit is atrocious especially at this price range. The Canons were nice at one point and with Magic Lantern they are real workhorses that you really can use for getting solid foundations (t3i with vintage lenses fx.) but if you want image quality that will stand in years to come you pick something else, here is a great article about it:
http://www.eoshd.com/2015/12/eoshd-video-quality-charts-2016/

No surprise there are no standard Canons in the "Good value for money" section (only ones with the RAW hack, which is nice but a whole new dimension demanding heavy post processing and lots of space.. look into it) because the Canon h264 video simply sucks. Newer cams (sony a6000, samsung nx1 etc) resample higher res images which mean you get much crisper images and also better codecs.

Hey /p/, I'll probably be chastised for this, but a friend of mine and I are working on planning a music video shoot, and we're thinking of doing a stupid VHS a e s t h e t i c-y type video. I don't own a camera, so I'm wondering, does /p/ think that I should throw down the bucks and rent a cheap DSLR, and then edit the footage in post to give it that VHS feel, or should I just straight up buy a VHS camera and convert the tape footage to digital?

Also, can anyone tell if this video was shot on VHS cameras or not? My guess is no, but I was wondering if anyone had a second opinion.

It can be done, and in fact - some amazing work is being done with them.

https://youtu.be/wv33e0TyL6M
^This is the best use of GoPros I've seen in film making (and goddamn is it cool, check out the music videos too - and yes this played at TIFF).

You do run into the technical difficulties (lighting requirements, space/battery requirements to shoot higher res's/framerates, dealing with the fisheye lens etc). Similar difficulties arise with smartphones, but you can make it work if you know what you're doing with it.

I would also say, looking good/perfect isn't everything - if it's good, it's good.

>>2731720
There's also a smartphone app I read up a while back, haven't tried it myself but worth a shot?
http://nofilmschool.com/2015/08/vhs-camcorder-rarevision-ios-iphone-ipad-app

You could probably figure out how to get the effect out of after effects. I'd avoid digitizing tape (it's a time consuming pain in the ass that requires either a camera or tape deck that you can hook up to your computer [capture/digitize on playback]).

>>2731584
Canon T2i/EosM/T3i. It's absolutely fine for amateur material (though I would say, professional has nothing to do with equipment - it's more a way you carry/conduct yourself [also, you aren't an amateur - you're a professional in training]).

Your camera is really only as good as you are in the end (a t2i can look fantastic if lit/lensed/graded/framed well [google Kendy Ty's work]).

Super 8mm is fine as well but it has a very distinctive look to it (rough look even when used well), I'd wait till you're a bit more experienced to mess with film.

>>2726822
http://www.theblackandblue.com/ is decent, however - the term 'Cinema Camera' is relatively new (as previously you only had Film Cameras & Video Cameras [video being anything shot on tape/digital]). It depends on the particular model you're after (say, Kranagorsk or Kinor 16's vs Bolex's vs Arris [you can't buy a Panavision camera or I'd list it]).
>>
>>2731840

You can also modify a GoPro to accept cmount lenses, so old Bolex lenses or CCTV lenses can be used for a different FOV outside of the standard fisheye. There's a surprisingly large amount of options as far as cmount lenses go because of the GoPros small sensor so you have options. Modification in question, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2UpD9TJUW54

How do I get the Cineform codec for Windows?

How does it fare to ProRes and DNxHD?

I know that I have an export option in Resolve for cineform YUV 10-bit, but I get an error that has led me to believe that it's because I don't actually have it installed.

Do you know what the different bitrates are?

Does it play well AMA linked to AVID (I already know AMA is iffy as it stands, but still).

Hey, I have an A6000 with an EF (metabones) speedbooster, and an EOS M with a (knockoff) F-mount speedbooster.

Need a new UWA (20mm or wider FF equiv), and I'm between a few options, budget is under 300. Fast is important.

-Sigma 20mm 1.8, which i can get on CL for 250: not as wide as I'd like, but fastest option

-Rokinon 14mm: I know there are some distortion issues, but on the speedbooster it's the widest option

-Rokinon 12mm 2.0 for E-mount: least useful and versatile option, and no speedbooster benefit, but this lens is so small that its appealing.

Other option is to spring a little more for the tokina 16-35 2.8, which runs 400-460 used ive found. if its parfocal like the 11-16 was (RIP, i'd just replace that but i rent an a7s too often for gigs and want to be able to just slap it on), that might be appealing.

I wish I didn't need the stops of light from FF enough for that to be a factor (shoot a lot of concerts where i have zero control over lighting), otherwise i might wait for that f/2 UWA zoom tokina is releasing for crop sensors

Unfortunately, at that price range it's really hard to say anything, $145 doesn't really get you much (especially w/good video).

You may be able to find a used t2i body or even grab a used GoPro (both are fine).

For travel though, to be honest - a point & shoot/smartphone would be fine too. I'd like to make it a point that you should enjoy your travels rather than be frustrated/obsessing over the photography/filming of your travels (not everything needs to be photographed, a good story you can tell or a good memory you keep is better than the best of travel videos/photos).

Hey, working with red raw footage for the first time, looking for workflow pointers? And is there any way to do it in speed grade, or do I have to use resolve?

Hey I have a Question regarding gear.

I currently own a 60d with a L lens ( 16-35mm 2.8 ) and will have around 700 euros to spend on whatever I need or may need in the future.
I am in a communication video course that can lead to taking a PHD on Audiovisual on a really good uni in my country. I wanted to know what I should do with those 700 euros ( keep in mind I am in the 1st year of a 3 year course ( 5 year course if you count the PHD )) I am really torn apart between keeping it until I have the necessary skill to use something like sliders paired with fluid video heads to make the panorama / parallax style of shots or to invest in equipment now and gather the skill as I go into the course.

What's your opinion?

I'm a bit torn between either investing in lenses or in material such as Slider / manfrotto head ( Already have a stable tripod, the Camlink one )


Thanks in advance and good year to y'all

Best way to do it is to work off an external since cacheing to your computer will bog you down. If you want speed just make proxies then edit with those then link back when you're done editing.

My projects haven't been too long with it so I've just edited the raw and cached off disk.

>>
>>2735333
nothings gonna look identical to slog2, but its definitely a lot easier to grade just because the color space is so similar

I have two profiles I came up with, one thats more designed towards grading (comparble to technicolor cinestyle), and one that is easy to grade but acceptable out of the box for the most part (comparable to film picture style).

Flatter profile: Using "Portrait", -3 contrast, -2 saturation, -2 sharpness. In grading, it seems closer to slog3 than slog2-- actually, it works pretty well when you just plug it into the slog3 preset on speedgrade, just expect to lose about a half-stop of exposure in the process

-more out-of the box ready alternative: "Deep", -1. -1, +1. This is what "vivid" should be, but has a little more grading room to push it for minor corrections when matching with the a7s
>>
>>2736499
that said i'd consider the cheaper a5100 for a b-cam; not as great for photos/no EVF/ worse AF if that matters, but ive heard people claim it has full pixel readout. also, the $10 LiveView Grading app might work with XAVC-S on the a5100-- i got it for the a6000 since it allows for way more customizable color profiles, and would basically solve your matching issue, but the a6000 didnt have xavc-s until a firmware update-- and they never updated the app to work with anything but avchd. So, save a couple hundos, get the a5100 for your b-cam instead of the a6000 if youre already getting an a7s (plus, the screen flips up 180 degrees on the a5100, which can be pretty handy)

thanks for the info mate, much appreciated! obviously I have no way of testing your settings right now but once I got the cams I certainly will.
The a5100 - if indeed has full sensor readout and 1080p at 60 fps - is a ridiculously great offer on the market, way over its competition at the price range.

I'm someone else but have a semi-related question. I have a reasonable budget to choose cameras for my college's new studio. The studio will be used for talking-head interviews, and smalltime broadcast style news done by students.

what's a good broadcast camera i can get sub $10,000? I'm interested in the Sony pxw-x180, but after using the NX5 for the last couple of years, 3X 1/3" sensors just don't seem good enough. The "cine" digicams don't do me any good because they don't have servo zoom and dont work well for broadcast.

"Muh (full frame) borkeg" is often the reason, which is one of the reasons the 5d is/was so popular. You also have people who don't have the slightest idea of what proper video equipment is and just see the 1080p HD label and think that's the best they can do for the price. Too many people with too little information is really what it is.
>A lot of people would benefit from a nice fixed lens video camera or something like an FS700
Only if they knew enough to reaps the benefits of such a camera. Most people on this board would be so overwhelmed that they would probably drop the camera and go back to their DSLR. The DSLR video revolution is single handedly responsible for catapulting HD recording abilities into the hands of photographers/hobbyists with no idea of how video works. While the core basics apply, video is a completely different beast when compared to stills, especially technology wise.

You're offended. I was just trying to describe the camera. Cinema: The production of movies as an art or industry.

H.264 is a compression algorithm in order to store video files in a smaller file size than the raw video is recorded at.

So to say "uncompressed H.264" is an oxymoron
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/H.264/MPEG-4_AVC
>H.264/MPEG-4 AVC is a block-oriented motion-compensation-based video compression standard developed by the ITU-T Video Coding Experts Group (VCEG) together with the ISO/IEC JTC1 Moving Picture Experts Group (MPEG).

Rent it if you don't know if you like it or not or perhaps ask B and H or some site about the specifics. Look at the detailed reviews and test videos to get a clear idea of what the footage was like, also that was not an oxymoron, because even though test videos are helpful they aren't actual filmmaking.
