DSLR the Canon 7d, The Basics
Time to talk about cameras again. Today it will be the Canon 7d. This camera exist in the space between the low priced Canon HV, Vixia camcorders and the T2i. It will retail for somewhere between one thousand and fifteen hundred dollars. This is a world class piece of machinery. It can compete with the big boys on almost every level.
This is one tutorial where I could go on and on about all the things that can be done with this camera or I could hand it over to this fantastic tutorial about the camera. Understand this before you run out and go get one, the camera is a part of the process. The camera is not the begin all and end all of film making. If you do not have good lighting, great sound and a great script then your film is going to end up looking like crap. Learn all you can about your camera before buying one and then come back and learn the basics of film making here. This is not going to be done over night. You are not going to learn it all and be ready to shoot in a week or two. Film making takes months if not over a year when you first start out. As you get better you will get quicker, but for now try to teach yourself patients.
One more thing before the tutorial begins, if there is anyone out there who has used this equipment and has a story to tell, I am looking for guest blogger. Drop me a message if you want to add a post. If you want to write about sound or editing I can almost promise that you will get into the blog.
Okay here is a 40 plus minute tutorial on the Canon d7.
