Most recent DSLR cameras include a video function to shoot and record films.
One of the aspects to be considered for filming with a DSLR camera is that most standard kit lenses don’t have the IS (Image Stabilisation), therefore if you film while moving, for example whilst walking or cycling, you’ll get a very shaky and blurry video.
We can still get great results out of our DSLR videos, avoiding common filming mistakes and by considering the following aspects:
– Using a tripod as much as possible, as without IS (Image Stabilisation), any movement of the camera, will result in a non pleasant and shaky video to watch.
– Use Manual Focus to get a more professional look to your video, focusing in and out to draw the vewer’s attention from further subjects to closer ones, or vice versa.
– Trying not to zoom in and out too much, and as slowly and smoothly as possible.
– Panning only with the camera on a tripod, or trying to be as level as possible and moving very smoothly.
