So, I've been wondering this. I've noticed how the videos taken with some portable digital video cameras, including my flip video camera, display the video with some characteristics that won't give you the look of a movie at all. I don't know how to explain it, but I guess is the colors that give this mood to the image.
For example, look at this two images
Whether the second image was part of a video or not, and besides the fact it needs white balance correction, plus is a city shot, you can see right away the difference in the image.
So if you were to try to achieve something like the first picture, what type of adjustments, and filters would you guys use at the time of editing the video?
