The cinema5D forum that was moved away from this website 1 year ago will come back to the cinema5D domain in one week weeks. The content will stay the same, the styling and usability will be new.
How it all started
I founded cinema5D 6 years ago when the first video capable DSLR cameras were announced. As a filmmaker I felt the need for a platform where we as a community that was quickly building around the new technologies could help each other...

Everyone who operates video cameras knows that there is one major thing to consider before you can start shooting: stabilization.

You know the old mantra of artsy filmmakers, “it’s not about the camera”. Deep down you know it’s absolutely true. We all geek out about new cameras and the latest and greatest, but the truth is that a bad story doesn’t become a tad better because it’s shot beautifully. I wrote about this fact in a lengthy blog post called “It’s not about the gear” a while back.
