HDSLR and Compact Camera Cinematography

In recent years, Digital Single Lens Reflex (DSLR) Cameras from companies like Canon, Panasonic, Nikon and Sony,which were typically designed for shooting still images are now capable of shooting high resolution video. This enabled end users to achieve very professional images by using high quality photographic lenses to shoot their video. As these DSLR cameras that could shoot HD(s) video becoming more commonly used, they are beginning to be known as HDSLR cameras.
Hot on the heels of the HDSLR revolution, other companies like Blackmagic Design began creating cameras which kept the small form factor of the HDSLR and packed in even more video features such as 4k and RAW video recording

Take-up in the media industry has been high, but many videographers DP's and cinematographers may not know how to optimize shooting with this new generation of cameras in addition to the various tips, tricks and workarounds to ensure they get the best results from their cameras.
