First production Canon EOS 7D videos arriving

by planetmitch73 Comments

Dan Chung, who produced one of the very first Canon EOS 5D Mark II videos to hit the Internet after it was released almost a year ago, has delivered one of the first production Canon 7D unit videos. We’re pleased that he alerted us that it was available! We’re including the small version of the video here, but you really really should go read about Dan’s first impressions of the Canon EOS 7D on his blog and then go to the link below the video to download the full size video on Vimeo (free membership let’s you download). On his blog post, you can also see his Canon EOS 5D Mark II version from the early release of the 5D2.

So, here’s Dan’s “Canon 7D movie – Another night in Beijing”

Canon 7D movie – Another night in Beijing from Dan Chung on Vimeo.

So here is my first attempt at filming with a production Canon Eos7D just one hour after receiving it from my local camera store. Starting at 10pm I spent about 2 hours in total filming this an the Nanluoguxiang Hutong in Beijing which is popular with locals and tourists alike. Due to the lack of light its shot mostly at around 1600 to 6400 ISO.

Lenses were the Canon 50mm f1.2L, 35mm f1.4L and the 70-200mm f4L IS. I attached my Zacuto Z-finder straight to the camera, then added a prototype of the new Genus d-slr bars supporting their wide angle mattebox to prevent any excess lens flare. I shot mostly handheld using a small Redrockmicro shoulder rig at times as well as on my fantastic Miller DS-20 tripod. Audio was from a Zoom H4n feeding the camera audio directly using a custom cable from Pinknoise systems (living with AGC to speed time in the edit).

He’s also set up a new blog called dslrnewsshooter.com that is “a resource for all news and documentary shooters using DSLRs to make HD video.” On this new blog, he describes a bunch more about how he made the video and shows some stills etc. — so please take a minute and go read his blog.

  23. […] Production Canon EOS 7D video samples hit the web We’ve already seen some video from a pre-production Canon EOS 7D, but it looks like it’s hitting stores now, and this is the first video we’ve seen from a final retail unit. It’s genuinely impressive, especially since filmmaker Dan Chung says most of it was shot at 1600 to 6400 ISO, but it’s important to realize that he was also using some seriously expensive lenses, a specialized video viewfinder, a wide-angle mattebox to reduce lens flare, and a separate external microphone for audio. Was that enough responsible skepticism for you? Good, because we also think the 7D looks like it’s going to rock, and we can’t wait to try one out.
