Hi,

I'm just finishing my first semi-serious film which we completed using a combination of T2i and GH2. I'm mostly satisfied with our lighting and shot composition. In post I'm seeing the need for a fully profesional camera. While we really like our DSLRs for practice and personal projects, rental of a Red, Alexa or BMCC seems like the smart thing. Problem is how do you become proficient with a specific camera when you just rent it? Technology trends are moving so fast it's hard to pick a pony.

Thanks,

Eris

Jeremy,
You hire an ac whi knows how to handle the camera and a dit. With those cameras, you will have a massive amount of data that you will have to handle, which is costly. After that, you might want to take your footage to a lab to color grade.
