SHORT FILM Shot on X-H1 AND Fuji XF 60mm f/2.4 R

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

So, I used the XH-1 to shoot a short film last year and it felt just right for a low budget film, that is shot in natural light, little time and only a tripod for stabilization. Really was drawn to the ETERNA, film simulation that was said to be ideal for shooting movies. I found the low contrast it provided - allowed more flexibility in post, i color corrected in Premiere which has its own library of film stocks to apply. But, I will enjoyed the look it provided - especially given it's a DSLR and not a camcorder. With that, you still face the highlights being blown out when you are shooting alongside a window. But, that can be sort of fixed in post. In summation, I'd say this could be a long term example of what can work on low budget projects. 

p.s. really liked the lens as well - it allowed me to of course maintain focus on my actors even when I was in really tight/close settings.

any thoughts or comments, please let me know - i am very open to feedback :)
