If you shoot video you know how quickly order can devolve into chaos. (“I know I checked those batteries that are now dead as doornails.”) The highest level of nerves, in my experience, have come on wedding shoots. If your actor flubs a line, you can do another take. There are no second takes when […]

I’ll let you guys decide, but the Huffington Post asks: “The Best Wedding Video Of All Time?” I’ve seen a bit of chatter this morning on twitter about it so I thought I’d put it to you. The vast majority of it was shot on the Canon EOS 60D and the Canon EOS 7D (reviews). […]

You’ve got to watch this trailer – really – I insist. I’ve not seen a wedding filmed with five Canon 7Ds and two 5D Mark IIs quite like this before! The scale of this film is amazing. From the Pacific Pictures blog: “There are so many ways to tell a storyâ€¦ And so much a […]

Famed wedding photographer Jeff Ascough has decided to dump his lousy Canon EOS 5D Mark IIs for a couple of Canon EOS-1D MKIV cameras. I’ve seen this mentioned in a couple of places and now I see there’s an official page over on the Canon Professional Network site. An excerpt from his CPN blog: “Iâ€™ve […]

And yes, we do still […]

In his post, he’s able to give some great information about his experience and there […]

Our friends over at stillmotion have produced the first wedding video shot on the Canon EOS 7D! Proving that the 7D is indeed a versatile camera. Now, how come I didn’t get picked to get TWO pre-release Canon EOS 7Ds (ok, it is obvious I don’t have the talent that stillmotion does LOL!). In their […]

planet5D friends Steven and Heidi (they’ve been on planet5D here and here) have formed a new venture and have released a new piece they created with the Canon EOS 5D Mark II. In this new video, they’re doing a “day after” shoot with the bride and groom. “An example of a “day after shoot”, when […]
