Video & Movie / Re: bmx+slowmotion video with 7D

Your editing is very good, but it looks like you need to work on your render settings. What program do you use to edit?

Pricewatch Deals / Re: Canon EF 35 f/2 IS in Stock at B&H Photo
« on: December 21, 2012, 06:57:12 PM »
Would love a 30 or 35 1.8 crop sensor lens w/out IS for around $200-300. Nikon's got the 35 F/1.8G for $200 :x The 30mm focal range is fairly wide so even the Sigma 30 1.4 without OS works for the most part (thinking in terms of camera shake in video).

EOS Bodies / Re: Future none light pertaining updates
« on: March 11, 2012, 01:34:16 PM »
One thing I wish that Canon had added to the 5D MkIII was backlit buttons as per the new Nikons.
I do a lot of shooting in the dark, and the backlit buttons would be very handy.
That's actually a really good idea 0.o though I can tell you what each button on my camera does with my eyes closed :)

EOS Bodies / Future none light pertaining updates
« on: March 10, 2012, 07:55:48 PM »
We often see updates to ISO and even color depth/dynamic range/etc. ... but what hardware updates can we look forward to such as new buttons and such. An example of the type of upgrade I'm talking about is the articulating screen on the entry level DSLRs starting with the D5000 and then improving to the t3i/60d/d5100.

EOS Bodies / Re: Buy T3i or Wait for T4i?
« on: March 10, 2012, 07:52:24 PM »
The T4i will have notable ISO improvement due to the addition of the Digic V processor.
Also it is expected to have auto-focus (though not completely reliable) and packed with a 18-135 silent motor lens.
Slight updates in firmware as well, including filters and new video codec/format.
May also include a headphone jack for audio monitoring.
Possibly wi-fi ready.

I personally am waiting though you really can't go wrong with the T3i. If I didn't already have a camera I would have gone with the T3i... the announcement is pretty near and it seems that you've already waited quite a while so I would wait and see the updates and when it will actually be released.

EOS Bodies / Re: Videographers happy with 5D Mark III?
« on: March 02, 2012, 04:12:20 PM »
No 1080p at 60fps? That's expected. What's also expected is that Magic Lantern will make it possible! :) Audio levels and headphone jack is a great addition. I wanted video autofocus, but considering the 1DX doesn't have it either... it's not expected. This camera is everything it should be. I personally would buy 3 T4i's instead though. For the same price, what is sure to be fantastic quality, and have great features you'll be able to do great cinematic scenes and interviews.

EOS Bodies / CanonRumors Accuracy
« on: February 22, 2012, 06:48:58 PM »
Seems to me a large percent of the rumors (even the official ones) are often off. These new 5D ones that are arising seem very plausible though... thoughts? Have you all been disappointed often with rumors here?

EOS Bodies - For Video / Re: Videos and AutoFocus
« on: February 22, 2012, 06:45:32 PM »
I've been wondering this myself for a while... no rumors have led to this belief though it's not out of the question considering Nikon has had it since the D7000 in 2010. Nikon's isn't very impressive... I would stick with Canon for video due to the fact of the full manual exposure on it's cropped image sensor models. Silent motors aren't just for video, but photography too. It would definitely make sense though that they sell a Silent motor lens with an auto-focusing body. I'm looking forward to Nikon's next cropped image sensor DSLR though it probably won't come out till late 2012.

EOS Bodies / Re: How much will these new cameras cost?

Just went to your channel and watched a few of your videos including "What's Your Passion"
I haven't seen your videos in a while, but always enjoy hearing from you!
I absolutely understand what you mean by filming throughout the house all the time and never using it, but building experience... and of course checking canonrumors :p
I love photography, cinematography, and even do some work with running sound for bands.
Also enjoy playing video games. I think it's awesome that you're interested in all of those as well.

For the 4K I'm assuming between a 7-8K price tag.
For the 5D Mark II replacement... about 3k.
Let me just say that you would know whether or not you really require that 4K resolution, and it's very unlikely that you do. I personally am more interested in the possibility of 1080p at 60fps on the Mark II replacement, though we don't see it on the Digic 5+ Canon 1DX.

Considering the price of the RED scarlet costing $13,000+, my predicted 7-8K price tag would be a bargain... I highly doubt Canon could go lower then that. For the consumer you seem to be, go with the 5D Mark II replacement - I'm sure you won't be disappointed.

Oh, and are you WoodysGamertag from Youtube?

Get the 60D unless your doing something very fast paced like professional sports... the 7D has the same sensor and has only a few benefits - mainly better focusing. Also consider the t3i or the soon to come t4i.

EOS Bodies / Re: Can someone debunk this Peter Lik picture... PLEASE!!!
« on: February 01, 2012, 10:06:48 PM »
Simply by looking at it you can tell that it's multiple exposures... no way that the moon would have shadows like that while the sky/stars would be exposed in that way. Also the edges of the moon are way to perfectly intact... absolutely no aberration or distortion at this focal length/perspective? I suppose stories like that one sell much better then saying you devised it in Photoshop...

Lenses / Re: Videography vs. Photography Lenses
« on: February 01, 2012, 09:31:24 PM »
Greetings all,

I am new to the DSLR world and recently acquired a Canon 60D.

I have a Tamron 17-50 2.8 and a Canon 50 1.8

Low light performance is decent as well as "zoom" capability

I'd like to get a lens, or two, for a modest price that will allow me to capture better low light images and video as well as more zoom capability...

I am not sure if a Tamron or Sigma 17-200mm 2.8 is going to be feasible for video or low light although it will have the zoom and I know that a Rokinon 85mm 1.4 will be much better in low light but may not have the closeness from a  distance that the 70-200 would give...are these both lenses that would solve me video issues?

Thoughts?

Main shooting types:

1. Narrative/Documentary
2. Sports
3. B-Roll (city shots, scenes, etc.)

Sigma 30mm F/1.4 :)
The zoom will increase camera shake so I don't recommend it. If you want over 50mm a 70-200mm f/2.8 is the way to go - would recommend Sigma again, though not as strongly as I recommend the 30mm F/1.4. Perspective wise on a cropped sensor camera like the 60D, the 30mm f/1.4 will look fantastic and offer beautiful low light, bokeh, color, etc. If you are working in low light I would also recommend a portable LED light that connects to where your hotshoe is.
