    There are mixed opinions on using custom ‘flat’ picture profiles on DSLRs. I have a couple of them stored on my T2i but have to admit I don’t like the look of them. They make skin tones look weird especially IMO. I prefer to use neutral with contrast, saturation and sharpness dialed down.

    The canon DSLRs as far as I know don’t have a great amount of dynamic range compared to traditional video cameras. Blacks look especially crushed particularly in underexposes areas. Flat picture profiles are supposed to increase dynamic range but to me, all they do is reduce contrast to the extent of turning blacks grey and introducing extra noise in the darker areas of the image. You get a little bit of extra detail in the dark areas but in a way where you’re compromising overall image quality.

    Everyone has different preferences and workflows so I’d say do your own tests and come to your own conclusion.

    My advice: shoot neutral, use a fast lens when possible and don’t underexpose.

    Hi Ty,

    Thanks for your response. Sorry for the late reply. I don’t think I’ll be using mixers at this point as I’d like to keep my set-up light and minimal for now.

    Here’s a couple of reviews I found:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nM0yTlSgyRA&feature=related

    The quality seems decent enough. Although I’m a bit concerned as to some of the apparent background hiss.

    I’ll be specific: I want to use this set-up for shooting weddings to stick on the groom. What I’m asking is, does the Zoom H1 have anything over using a cheaper mp3 voice recorder quality wise? Or is it all in the mic? Are there any lavalier mics you could recommend within the $50 to $100 price range?

    Thanks again, and happy new year!

    Hi Stephen,

    I already knew how to change the aperture but do admit it took me a while to figure out at first. I won’t send the camera back but I’m still kinda confused as to why everyone is saying that DSLRs are much better in low-light than traditional video cameras; based on my experience I’d have to disagree. Maybe my understanding is flawed. Oh well, I’m on the market for 1.4 or 1.8 prime lens anyway.

    Mike

    I bought a T2i recently with this battery grip:

    Works fine for me. Being able to use an extra battery continuously is cool as one battery by itself doesn’t last very long.

    I shoot on neutral with sharpness and contrast turned all the way down; saturation down one notch.

    You really reckon 85mm is too long for indoors? I used my 17-50 zoom for some interviews a few days ago and I found that i couldn’t really get as close as I’d like without actually moving the camera and tripod closer to the subject. Also, I’d prefer to get a prime with a focal length that isn’t covered by the zoom I already have.

    Cool. Thanks for this tips. I think I’ll look at getting an 85mm prime for my next lens, either a 1.8 or 1.4.
