What about the Canon Rebel T2i/550D? Can you make good movies with it?

by planetmitch1 Comment

In the last couple of weeks, I've gotten several submissions shot with the Canon Rebel T2i/550D (reviews) that have just been wonderful. So, I thought I'd show them to you as well (tho they have also been added to planet5D Cinema).

The first is a music video that just really got me (maybe it is the song because I loved that too!). For me at least, the inclusion of the woman in the TV and being able to pull that off with an $800 camera is just terrific. Note: If you're interested in the song, check out johnwaynes at myspace.

This second one was sent in by our planet5D 18 year old friend Patrick from Germany who also sent us the skateboarding video highlighted on this blog post.

He said:
This clip was created as part of an art project.
It focused on a “field” to the concept of nature.
We went to twice on tour.
Once the Furlbachtaal, another time to the development area of the highway. Now it was the projects for further discussion to consider the concept. I made up my mind for a possible connection between the two places to look for and so came to this idea.

Filmed with:
Canon 550D 18-55mm and 50mm f.1.8
Sound:
Zoom H4n, Audiyou

  1. I think you definitely CAN shoot great videos with the 550D. I’ll try to explain how to shoot some good clips on a really tight budget on my little blog.
