I am amazed, continuously amazed, at the low-cost options that film makers have these days. The other day I was at an amusement park with my kids and someone had the Sony Nex-5 camera taking footage of his kids. I never thought I would see the day where I could have this option in such a small package. That camera is small! Yet it has full HD and interchangeable lens capability. It’s not big and bulky like a camcorder or even a larger DSLR. A great price-point too for an extra camera for just carrying around to get beautiful shots of every day things.
This is a video shot on the Sony Nex-5 camera. Very nice work Daniel!
Some very successful Independent Contractors have even been known to use less expensive equipment to test and shoot on. This is a short documentary shot by Phillip Bloom on the Sony Nex5n:
