What makes a web video great?

05 October 2012 - 02:11 AM

There are a lot of factors that go into making any kind of video/film great, but some, often times go unnoticed until you have a reason to think about them, like good sound quality vs a video's image quality which is judged almost immediately upon hitting play.

My question for you guys is what video quality is more important to you when you're watching a web series or just a random video online? Do you care more about the sound, or is the image quality more important then good audio? If you want, you can post an example.

You can comment on other factors that make up a great video too like story, or solid editing, but my main focus is on sound quality vs image quality.

Making the move to Canon, need some advise

02 October 2012 - 07:09 PM

After a little more then a year after making the decision I needed to make the move from Nikon to Canon. The reason I've held out so long before actually following through with my decision, was because I wanted to wait as their were many rumors Canon was finally going to announce the successor to the 7D at that big camera convention last month, but that did not happen as planned. Now there are new rumors (of course) that the reason we haven't got a successor to the 7D is because it's taking Canon longer then expect to develop it's new cropped sensor, but is now expect to be announced sometime next year.

Needless to say, I'm getting tired of waiting, so I want to build a kit around the T3i body and a high quality, general purpose lens, with the long term goal of eventually replacing the T3i body with the new 7D successor when Canon finally decides to release it. The camera will be used about equally for photos and video. I've narrowed my lens selection down to a couple lenses and was wondering if anyone here has had any experience with any of the lenses or just a general opinion on them would be greatly appreciated.

lenses:
  • Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L USM
  • Canon EF-S 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM
  • Tamron SP AF 17-50mm f/2.8 XR Di II LD IF

-The two Canon lenses are roughly the same price +/- $40 at $700-740 each (the L series lens being the more expensive)
-The Tamron comes in at $500 roughly $200 cheaper then the two Canon Lenses, but has the advantage of a lower F-stop but no IS.
-An advantage of the L series lens would be that it would fit any new Canon camera where as the others are specific to the APS-C sensor but it also has the smallest F-stop at 4.

Homeland

15 November 2011 - 06:19 AM

Is anyone else watching Showtime's Homeland? It's a new series that is basically focused around a foreseen terrorist attack on American soil by a turned solider. I'd be willing to call it the best new show of 2011. It's well written, suspenseful, blah, blah, blah.

Last night's episode really answered a ton of lingering questions and put things into full drive. I look forward to next week's episode.

29 September 2011 - 02:31 AM

Anyone else pick it up? I grabbed a copy this afternoon for the PS3. I haven't picked up a new FIFA since probably 06 or 07 so this versions a big upgrade for me ha.

web hosting?

11 September 2011 - 10:02 PM

I don't know much about web hosting, but I'm in sure of a inexpensive host. Does anyone have any tips on what to look for? Or any recommendations for that matter?

What I plan to be hosting is a Movable Type blog which is perl based.
