A tale of two cameras…

lundi, octobre 25th, 2010

Ok, so my father (thank you Dad) offered me a 550D (Rebel T2i for those from the other side of the ocean).

I wanted this camera as my B camera to complete my 7D based setup.

Here’s a picture of this little guy, stuffed with my favorite 24-70 f2.8L lens.

And this guy knows some cool tricks. First, all useful commands and buttons are on ONE side (the right side). That means one handed operation : GREAT. Second, the video mode has a dedicated position on the mode selection knob : VERY GREAT. What that means is that the flat picture style you created for video recording is applied ONLY to video. When you’re back in any still picture mode, you’re not shooting flat. And that’s simply brilliant. Ok, you can do that with the C1-C3 modes on your 7D. But having this video position is so handy…

Still, it will remain my B camera (and also my only camera for vacations, week ends, and having around at every moment) and it will not replace my A camera, a Zacuto infused, heavy 7D, pictured below.

Paris HDSLR Meetup

dimanche, octobre 10th, 2010

Following the Paris HDSLR Meetup organized by Sebastian Wiegärtner – see his blog post I made a short video. It’s meant to be more an archive document than anything, I wasn’t planning to do anything from this footage at the beginning but some images produced by the 7D are so beautiful… and compensate for my poor shooting and editing skills.
