Analog vs. Digital Cameras

Analog vs. Digital Cameras


( music playing )Marques:Today I’m going to
talk with Rik Cordero,
a filmmaker who’s directed
music videos
with retro aesthetics
for artists like Nas,
Q-Tip, and The Roots.Rik is here
to help me compare
the analog look
of digital cameras
versus the look of
the original JVC camcorder.
So, this is it.
What I was usingwhen I was making
these music videos
was the Panasonic HVX– something that bridged
the gap between consumer and professional equipment, and it had this lived-in look. Great, let’s see
if we can put it together.( music playing )– This is now adapted.
– It is. – What I have here today
is that first JVC camera.
– Oh, my God. I’m really excited to see what it looks like
next to this thing. Who’s gonna carry
the lighter camera?
That’s the question. – I got this one.
– Thanks. ( muttering ) The only bummer
was not having a screen – to see anything.
– Yeah. Now that we’ve shot with this,
we should switch over – and see what
the Panasonic system’s like.
– Yeah. Yeah. – How was that?
– Pretty good. It was framed pretty well,
and I could see it. When you have the viewfinder, you feel more confident
in your shots. Marques:Yeah.All right, well, let’s look
at them side by side. All right,
so let’s check out the JVC. – ( whirring )
– I love that motorized
sound that it makes. – That’s a long sound.
– It is. – I’m not even gonna lie.
– You ever see– – You ever see “RoboCop”?
– No. Cordero:
They recorded the sounds of,
like, VCRs and VHS camcordersas the sounds
of when RoboCop walked. ( whirring ) Thank you for your cooperation.
Good night. ( whirring ) That actually makes
a lot of sense. – Almost everything that’s
in highlight is blown out.
Yeah.– Uh, not as wide as I thought.
– There you go. There you go. We’re seeing the disadvantage
of not having a viewfinder. – Yeah. It looks like
found footage.
– Yeah. We were going for that look. So, this is really
taking me back.I was filming VHS movies
when I was 13 years old.
Nothing was perfect, and that’s
what made it feel real. You can add
all the after effects,
plug-ins you want,and you’re not gonna achieve
what’s happening here.
Marques:Not something that
could easily be replicated.
– Rik:No.
– Next step is to check out what the Panasonic system
kicked up. Pause this. Rik: So we’ll play
the first clip. All right. The framing’s
instantly way better, much more dynamic range, and, yeah,
colors look way better. The thing I like is
that you still have this
filmic look to it. It’s a look
that I think really advanced
the look of VHS. If I were to pick
between these two rigs,
I would still pick this one, even though it’s
a little more taxing
to set up and carry. But at the end of the day,
this is the grandaddy
of it all. Rik:Yeah, that’s the one
that kicked off everything.

    Why is this video so short?

    I am glad that some musicians are recording music videos in 4K.

    I hope the uncompressed 4K videos are put on Tidal or Vimeo.
