shooting with 2 different cameras
Posted 13 September 2006 - 03:04 PM
Hi, I'm in need of help. I have a shoot coming up where I will need to shoot a location and some live performance with 2 cameras. We unfortunately don't have a set up where we have 2 identical cameras, so as it stands I will have a HDV FX1 and an XLH1 camera. Both cameras will be shooting the same action, each camera on different ends of the studio. Essentially the post production will be making cuts only on A cam footage and B cam footage - (not intercut against each other) but it's done for the final intention of presenting as an installation, with A cam image next to B cam image.
Now, in light of this, considering that I am using 2 different cameras, with 2 different lenses, both in the same shooting conditions (each on polar opposite ends of a room, one facing a window, one facing the interior of the studio , will I have trouble cutting them and having them look close to similar side by side? Do I absolutely need to have 2 identical cameras for a situation like this?
