A New World for Quality Photography, Videography, Cinematography, Music, and Dramatic Performances is Evolving out of the Newest DSLRs

A new Nikon D4 DSLR produces exceptionally high quality still and HD 1080 video images with superb sound. This is just one is a field of new super high quality DSLR from several manufacturers that allow entry into the semi and professional levels of capture for one tenth what it used to cost.  It's a whole new world of high end digital technology for the artists to explore.

It’s always a joy to view a quality photographic or modern short video clip that inspires or amazes you with technical quality, proficiency and artistic character. It the world we now live in there is no need to wait to get an opportunity to see the latest artist’s show, or museum presentations. The Internet provides us a glimpse into the personal galleries and presentations of almost all of the worlds artists, both professional and amateur, famous and unknown. What a great place for lovers of art, photography, videography and cinematography.

Recently I’ve been very impressed by both the professional quality and creativity allowed to all with the recent development of DSLR video capabilities from many of the great camera manufacturers, particularly Canon, and to a lesser extent Nikon and the others. Now it has become possible for people with the artistic and creative flair to produce incredible short video clips and short films on a budget unheard of before today. In the past entry into this elite field meant spending upwards of $50,000 to have a descent quality camera, some prime lens, and good quality sound (and I am certain this amount is way short of realistic). Today’s artists and creator can enter the field with under Five thousand dollars and achieve similar if not identical results. A drop 10 fold drop in entry investment. And the same or more is true in the area of post capture production. Many of the professional quality Sony and other brands of video editing equipment have been simulated and even surpassed by the advent of powerful personal computers from both the OS and MS worlds. In short what might have required at least $250,000 to produce from start to finish (not taking into account manpower hours or artistic value), can now be duplicated at less than one twenty-fifth of the price. Wow! Indeed the world is a new place for creative artists, photographers, videographer and cinematographers. There has also been created in this new world the ability for new and fledging artists in many other fields like music, acting and writing to enter with greater ease. With every advantage there are accompany disadvantages, but that discussion is way beyond the scope of this post.

Surface it to say that those who would pursue their artistic endeavors with a passion today can produce materials and products that were not possible even a decade ago without very deep pockets. This part of the equation is very positive, and below are some examples I have recently seen that caught my eye for their creativity, quality, and professionalism in the art of photography, videography, cinematography, music, editing, lighting and sound.

In less than ten minutes, these will provide your eyes, ears, and hearts with a vast array of human emotions.
