Mixing the Panasonic AF100 and the Canon 5D Mark II Footage
Saturday, December 01, 2012

It's not the point of this blog to put one camera against the other and come up with a winner. Each camera has its qualities and shortcomings but the question is: what if we are shooting a project and decide to use both the Canon 5D and the Panasonic AF100? Why would you want to use both and how would their footage mix?&nb...

Frequently Asked Questions
