Ron Howard talks about the HDSLR Revolution

by planetMitch1 Comment

The other day, I found this video on USA today where Ron Howard is talking about all sorts of things about cameras including the HDSLR revolution and I knew you'd want to watch.

When asked about switching from Film to HDSLRs, Ron said:

“I think it is absolutely fantastic. I'm sure there is still a place for film, but I feel like much is gained, and almost nothing is lost.”

There's much more on HDSLRs and digital video – have a watch!

Directing with digital SLRs
He filmed two shorts for the Funny or Die website with the Canon 5D Mark II, a digital SLR that's used often for video, as well. For big-budget films, “I'm sure there's still a place for film, but much is gained (with DSLRs) and almost nothing is lost. You're not running out of film and waiting four minutes for a reload at a crucial moment.”
