Oct 13,2022 Ausek
Sports video camera is a camera dedicated to recording the action process, often shot from the first perspective of the sportsman, sports cameras for compact and rugged protection performance requirements are high, usually the user's need to shoot video is greater than the need to shoot still images, usually fixed in sports equipment or human body surface to shoot.
1. Super wide angle can provide a more interesting shooting perspective.
Super wide angle shooting effect has shown a very obvious spherical distortion, can accommodate a very wide scene content, in the creation of film and television we are often called "super perspective". This kind of ultra-wide perspective on the one hand can show the shooting scene is large and vast (mostly distant), on the other hand, you can also use this aberration to shoot a very exaggerated image of people and buildings. The general cell phone ultra-wide angle lens is mostly 12 - 48 megapixels (in terms of cell phone CMOS program), the perspective is mostly concentrated in about 115 °, so a comparison, the first sports cameras have an advantage in the perspective.
2. sports cameras are easier to carry.
Such a small square, and regardless of how many times smaller compared to DSLR Compared to the volume and weight of how many times smaller, even compared to cell phones, it is also more storage advantages. Put it in your pocket, hang it around your neck, or squeeze it in a triangle bag with your camera, even with many accessories, it won't take up a lot of space. As a complementary imaging solution with SLR / micro single, the main storage space is of course still to be left to the camera lens filters and other things, leaving a small part of the space for sports cameras, is also a common storage solution for many photographers and media people.
3. Sports cameras have special scenes of professionalism.
As mentioned earlier, sports cameras are dedicated to solving the problem of shooting in sports scenes from the beginning, which is difficult to replace the function with other equipment. Most of the current sports cameras in the video stabilization technology has been very mature, on the one hand, thanks to the ultra-wide perspective, the screen shake is less likely to be detected, on the other hand, the sports camera manufacturers in the algorithm gain and internal structure up and down a lot of effort to do research and development, so that sports cameras even in some high-intensity intense sports scenes can still shoot a high degree of stability of the picture, so that the audience can be more and more clear The viewer can more and more clearly see the state of the shooter's movement. And now sports cameras are also out of the sports field, very widely used in movies and documentaries, used to shoot some intense and exciting action scenes and so on. In addition, water resistance is also a major highlight of sports cameras, and is difficult to be replaced by other types of equipment. Most of the sports cameras in the bare metal safety dive depth has exceeded the ten-meter mark, with waterproof housing can dive to 60 meters or more. Although the waterproof performance of cell phones is also progressing day by day, but to compare with sports cameras still have a small gap. The charm of the underwater subject does not need to be said, a test will tell.
4. In some cases, sports cameras can replace DSLR / micro-single products as the main machine use.
Common equipment solutions in the film and television industry are film machine / SLR / micro single as the main, supplemented by sports cameras or other imaging equipment as a secondary position, but as long as the use of the right, sports cameras used to do the main is no problem.
