People continue to ask me if DLSR video is dead… the clear answer is hell no!
Here's another example of someone who's using a Canon EOS 5D Mark III to just get the job done.
Tim Daly (actor – imdb profile) clearly could be using more expensive cameras (well, ok, maybe he's as broke as everyone else around here LOL)… but he's doing some personal projects and has chosen to use a DSLR instead.
He's also clearly an alien like me – he calls all you people “humans” while I prefer the endearing term “Earthlings” myself.
But just because some people try to tell you that HDSLRs are dead, don't fall for it. Just use the tools and move on.
That other online Daly Show – starring Tim Daly
STUDIO CITY, Calif. — You know actor Tim Daly from TV series like CBS' Madam Secretary and NBC's Wings.
But have you caught him on the Daly Show? Not Jon Stewart's The Daily Show, but DalyShowTV, the YouTube comedy parody series he does with his son Sam? In a recent interview at CBS offices here, Daly told us about the homegrown video project, why he addresses his Twitter audience as “humans” and about his favorite subway app.
DALY SHOW TV
The comedy segments — shot in his home, backyard or back lots of TV series — are produced by friend Ben Shelton and feature the Twitter hashtag #Alittlelessdouche” prominently. Veteran actress Betty White even recited it in a bit they recorded when Daly was guest-starring on her TV Land sitcom Hot in Cleveland. Daly is produced with a Canon 5D Mark III camera and goodwill from his fellow actors, who have included Superman Returns' Brandon Routh, Castle's Nathan Fillion and Glee's Chris Colfer. “We have a great time. We don't have to answer to anyone; the budget is low two-figures per episode; we can make them whatever we want,” Daly says. The videos have received nearly 750,000 views to date.
