Shooting Video with a DSLR: Raindance's Tip 3
Most DSLRs nowadays are equipped with full-frame 35mm sensors, allowing more light to be captured and more detail to be recorded.
Using a sensor of this size to record HD video, you get stunning bright and vivid images that put the smaller sensors to shame.
You can also jack up the ISO on your DSLR, often to 6400 or even higher. It makes the footage grainy, but can clarify situations where you wouldn’t be able to see anything using normal settings.
A little extra light will go a long way with video, so getting your hands on a little ring light like the one below could really unlock your night-time shooting potential.

We would also like to congratulate Newsflare member: Julian Kemp, who won the 2 tickets to our Raindance 99 minute film school competition. We know Julian will learn some great filming tips from the expert himself, founder of Raindance, Mr. Elliot Grove.
