Andrew Collin, a professional in wedding filming, captivating and delivering the best moments of their lives to clients for almost 8 years, says that large over-shoulder video cameras and literally belongs in the last century. Small and compact professional video cameras are easy to handle, give more perspective to a videographer and makes people happy to know they are not actually filmed, so they act naturally.
But this is a controversial question. According to Vitaliy Lyubezhanin, a photograph, pointing out that size does matter and does not at the same time. He says that smaller cameras are less sensitive to light and easily produce noise on the background. With big cameras the result is more professional and clear. He prefers something in the middle: medium size camera with big sensors.
However, Stephen Alberts, the owner of Stephen Alberts Wedding Film, respond that it does not matter what the size of the camera will be, but how talented the videographer is! He is in charge of capturing the best story possible and is able to find the right angles and be a great storyteller. According to him, amazing cameras come in all sizes.
Joe Bauer from Joseph F Bauer Studios supports him on the matter. He claims that one of the great filmmakers once shot a wedding filmed with his mobile phone, and the recording was more than just fabulous. Everything comes to the talent of the person who films the wedding and his professionalism.
The size matters when it comes to a person who will shoot your wedding. It may be really difficult to think of the right size of a camera, but what’s most important is the videographer attitude and his professionalism. Big cameras are professional and the quality is better, but small cameras in the right hands can make a natural miracle. And a miracle is what a true wedding is required.
