a question for anyone working in TV broadcast; why are cameras with large format sensors (S35 or FF35) virtually never used in multi-cam studios?
14:24
ItsMeLenny
intracube, my guess is depth of field
14:24
ItsMeLenny
smaller sensor = larger field of view, also means smaller lenses cheaper to make
14:24
ItsMeLenny
sorry, smaller sensor = larger depth of field i meant
14:25
ItsMeLenny
it actually means a smaller field of view if one were to use the same lenses
14:25
intracube
yep, focussing would be more difficult
14:25
intracube
but then having shallow DOF might be desirable for the aesthetic
14:26
ItsMeLenny
maybe if something is trying to be cinematic, and/or they want to viewer to focus on a specific thing
14:27
intracube
I was looking at some publicity stills for a show (shot with a DSLR) and thought they looked strikingly different
14:27
ItsMeLenny
but i think for most part movies even have quite a large depth of field for a lot of scenes
14:27
intracube
and wondered what it'd look like if the whole show was filmed/videoed in that format
14:27
ItsMeLenny
yeah, the final episode of House was shot on 5d mk IIs if i remmeber correctly
14:27
intracube
but at 50 fps not 24 or 25
14:28
intracube
I think it was final episode of season 5?
14:28
intracube
or at least parts of the episode
14:28
ItsMeLenny
it survived past season 5?
14:28
ItsMeLenny
:P
14:28
intracube
I thought they went back to regular 35mm for the later shows
14:28
ItsMeLenny
ah, i don't know
14:29
intracube
digital S35/APS-C format is being used quite commonly for single camera dramas now in the UK
14:30
ItsMeLenny
what is big bang theory shot on i wonder (not that i watch it), im just trying to think of a current sitcom
14:30
ItsMeLenny
ah
14:30
intracube
but I haven't seen any studio based programs (news, entertainment) using that format
14:30
ItsMeLenny
but a 5d mII would have a sensor thats larger than S35
14:30
intracube
ItsMeLenny: either 35mm film or digital equiv I guess
14:30
ItsMeLenny
yeah
14:31
intracube
ItsMeLenny: right, but either would give much shallower focus compared to regular broadcast cameras
14:31
ItsMeLenny
i think the TV vibe is kind of 8mm 16mm equiv, looking at shows like rutland weekend television
14:32
ItsMeLenny
8mm would?
14:32
ItsMeLenny
i thought broadcast would be on 3/4s or is it 4/3s
14:33
ItsMeLenny
2/3s?
14:33
intracube
broadcast cams seem to often be 2/3 inch

and Big Bang was shot Super35 seasons 1-6 and digital Sony F55 from S7 onward
14:34
intracube
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0898266/technical?ref_=tt_ql_dt_7
14:34
ItsMeLenny
ah which is just under a 16mm size
14:35
ItsMeLenny
i think big bang theory is a downside to cameras existing :P
14:36
ItsMeLenny
those broadcast cameras also have those very long zoom lenses in them, i would think that also plays a part
14:36
ItsMeLenny
id love to have a few studio cameras, just to play around with :P
14:39
intracube
standar def equipment is going cheap these days
