Canon 7D DSLR

Having shot HD Video footage with the Canon 5D MK2, I was instantly pulled into the possibility of replacing HDV cameras with Video capable DSLRs as the main camera to film shorts and music videos.The main advantage of the DSLR compared to HDV cameras is that for me to obtain the same flexibility of different depth of fields, it would require me to use a 35mm adapter. And 35mm adapters don't come cheap, they start at $3000! ae2134d946974-01 Canon 7D. Putting video cameras to shame.And with the announcement of the Canon 7D on the 1st September, it seems that my wish was granted. With the ability to shoot 24p, 25p, 30p, 50p and 60p in 1080 full HD, this is the ultimate Video DSLR that you can get. Better yet, this camera is cheaper than the Canon 5D Mk2 or any 35mm adapters.

I can't wait to start shooting when my new camera arrives in 3-5 days or so. In the meantime, I just have to watch more Canon 7D examples and see what lenses they've been using.

Dublin's People: Canon 7d 24p from Philip Bloom on Vimeo.Philip Bloom was one of the first people in the world to get to use the Canon 7D. This short piece was shot with a preproduction version of the camera, but as you can see, the image is fantastic!

Canon 7D movie - Another night in Beijing from Dan Chung on Vimeo.Then on the day the official Canon 7D came out, Dan Chung from China puts up footage like this!I hope I can place up some footage soon when I get my camera.
