DV as a professional format
26 May 2000 | by (Paris, France) – See all my reviews

This film, the first of ARTE (French/German channel)"petite caméra" series, was shot with 2 miniDV DX100 Panasonic cameras. The kind of stuff you can buy at your local store. However, the quality of the picture matches what you could expect from a highly professional Digital Betacam. Very small, light, sensitive, the DV cams (the other films of the series were shot with Sony PD100 cameras) give new possibilities to the directors. At Berlin the film was presented in a 35mm copy. Nobody noticed the video origin. This demonstrates that it is now possible to produce non-Dogma high quality films with mini DV cameras.
