The term cinematic is a term that has been misused or abused throughout the videography industry. Cinematic refers to having movie like qualities. When it comes to major motion pictures, the final product is of a film that shows at 24 frames per second. This is basically the standard frame rate of the movie industry. When the movie production shoots the movie using 35 mm film or used high definition digital video, the end product is still 24 frames per second. Today's wedding videographer Orange County cameras now have this capability which allow wedding video to be produced with a film-like look. This is the first and probably the most important quality that videographers must be able to provide in order to even claim that they can create a cinematic wedding video. How can something be cinematic if the video does not even have a film-like quality?

But since the cost of a professional digital videography camera of come down as well as the cost of non linear editors, it has actually resulted in many entering this industry who really are not qualified to do so.
