EOS Bodies / 7D + 50mm 1.8
« on: October 04, 2011, 10:47:54 AM »

I just bought a 7D + 50mm 1.8 and I immediately started shooting with it but I've encountered a problem. So, I've read that if I want to create the cinematic effect I always have to set the shutter speed the double of the frames I'm using (eg if I use 30 frames I should set shutter speed at 1/60). That's what I did. Since I want to create that beautiful bokeh effect I have the aperture at 1.8 but the thing is, there's just too much light and the image is all white. I'm doing anything wrong or is it like that?

Help me out please!

Thanks for all the replies. After alot of thinking I'll pick a 5d mark ii and a 50mm 1.8 or even 1.4 if I find a cheap one. Later on, when I have more cash I'll buy more lenses and some other stuff needed.

So, 5D mark ii + 50 1.8(or 1.4) is a good combo to start, what do you think?

Well, I got around 2100€ to spend on a body and on lenses. I was thinking in getting a 5DII body and a 50 mm 1.8. My other option is a 7D with the kit lense (18-135 IS if Im not mistaken) and  a 50 1.8. The reason Im willing to buy a 50mm 1.8 is because I've heard/seen it gives very nice shallow depth of field on videos and stills.  What do you think?

Canon General / 7d or Mark II for filming?

Im about to upgrade my camera but I'm not quiet sure which one is the right one for me. Here is the deal, as I study tv and cinema I need a camera for filming but I also enjoy taking pictures(that's why I won't buy a handy cam or something). So my problem comes when I don't know which one to choose. I heard the Mark II better but is the 600€ worth the difference? Anyone has both or used both? Please help me out Thank you in advance  ;)
