A Practical Introduction to Full Format

One of the big topics at NAB this year will no doubt be the introduction of full format cinema cameras, and lenses to accompany them. In this blog, I give a practical guide to these cameras and their many advantages.

The cinema world has been happily working with Super 35mm cinema cameras for many decades now, which may have you wondering about the advantages of getting into a full format camera system. Especially, because for many of us that means also investing in new lenses.

There are many advantages to moving into this new cinema technology, and most of them revolve around versatility and choice. These new systems give you more lens choices, especially when it comes to shooting in anamorphic, and a distinct look. Watch my video to learn more.
