wich camera should I choose for a commercial where I need portaits with critical focus on the eye and minimun depth of field?

 

I am inclined to full frame... but wanted the maximun latitude possible... so ...

 

what about 1d-C versus 5D? do I get quite more latitude with canon log... am I right?

 

and one doubt: I I use the 1D-C on APS-H wich is not full frame... what is really happening? do I lost the critical depth of field or I just crop the image?

 

in the beginning I was thinking of the C-300 but because I want that sense of tilt&shift focus on the portrait...I thought about depth of field with full frame and compact primes 1.4

 

 

this is the kind of look I am searching for, but with the maximun dynamic range possible because I will be shooting exterior and I haven't got nice experiences on the white clipping with 5D

 

THANKS IN ADVANCE

You shouldn't double post, it just causes confusion.
