More than just video.

Discover Oregon footage is primarily shot in uncompressed CinemaDNG and CR2 RAW digital film.  This means that every second of video began as 24 individual photographs instead of a compressed file.  The uncompressed files gives Discover Oregon footage a range of light and color more similar to the human eye than is possible with an average video camera.  This is also responsible for the huge amount of data making up our films; our Blackmagic camera burns though a gigabyte of data every 20 seconds.  The individual frames also happen to look great as still photos!

The colors are all-natural.

There isn’t any HDR (high dynamic range shots composed of 2 or more frames), and all extravagant sunset colors were made by wildfire smoke particles in the air – not Photoshop!

It isn’t always possible to be in Oregon’s most beautiful places, but now it’s possible to go there virtually.  Discover Oregon was filmed with high quality RAW cameras and file formats – which means this film captures colors and lighting more like Hollywood and the BBC than your average iPhone or DSLR video.  Discover Oregon is best experienced in high-definition, and there’s a few different ways you can see it!
