A reader of the Filmmaking Stuff Newsletter named Joe recently contacted me regarding use of the Canon EOS 7D Digital SLR camera for short movies and possibly a small feature.
As someone who never ignores readers excited about something filmmaking related, I looked into this camera. Have you seen it?
It looks like a traditional DSLR, because it is. But this one is a bit different, it captures video. But not just any video. For a little more than $1600, the video this camera captures is beyond amazing!
I know what you’re thinking – An DSLR for motion pictures?
I know. I know.
I think using an DSLR to make movies looks totally stupid too. But the end result can not be ignored. Check out these videos I pulled off YouTube.
