The Best Digital Video Camera to Rent
There are different types of video cameras on the market, from portable video cameras, also called ENG cameras (Electronic News Gathering), studio cameras or camera chains, to action video cameras. You should keep reading to learn more about these incredible movie cameras.
Cinema cameras or ENG cameras work independently of any installation and have an integrated signal recording system. All recording, exposure or sound operations are carried out by the camera operator itself.
Studio cameras are integrated into the video production system. Professional video camera chains are part of mobile units or set installations and do not usually record on the camcorder, but on the mobile unit or camera control. Both exposure and color control is also remotely controlled from the camera control.
And, although the camera video chains have improved in every way in recent years, it has been the ENG cameras that have made a true revolution in the audiovisual market.
However, to evaluate the big change in trend in ENG-type video cameras, we have to go back to the 80s. All global audiovisual production used magnetic recording media, at that time called “Betacam SP”. In that decade there was a change in that recording media, the cinema cameras. The first key point, the digital recording media.
In 1993 Sony launched Betacam Digital. Although this system of video cameras came to replace the Betacam SP video cameras, they have coexisted until very recently due to the large investments that it was supposed for televisions.
In 2005 Canon announced the new Canon 5D camera with full frame sensor and memory card recording. This was cheap and with a result that stood out from the other cinema cameras at that time, due to the look it offered compared to what was usual on video, the 2/3 inch.
In 2007, Red announced the first digital cinematography camera, the sensor size revolution in cinematography cameras and video cameras. Up until now, this had a totally different trajectory. Television and digital video cameras had smaller sensors. The standard was 2/3” inch, even in some feature films that were shot at that time, the mythical Sony F900 was used for digital video.
It was an unexpected change that was extremely successful. Firstly, because it was a similar format in terms of size and look. Second, because the evolution to a larger sensor meant the possibility of capturing images with less noise and a bigger dynamic range than smaller sensors.
In recent years, Canon, Sony, and Panasonic have revolutionized the camcorder market with sophisticated models of cinematic equipment. This was summed up in great features at very low prices, compared to previous generations of video cameras. In short, greater sensitivity, dynamic range, variety of recording formats and resolution.
Hybrid video recording equipment has been developed between television, video, and film recording equipment. Cameras that have been used for news, television programs, advertising or even for the broadcast of multi-camera events in which CCU camera control is dispensable.
Now that you know more about them, we present the best digital video cameras. Discover them at Camaleon Rental.
