Some new Canon EOS 7D videos to feast your eyes

Boy, it hasn't taken long for some very high quality Canon EOS 7D videos to pop up on our viewfinder! This is a quick grab of a few that I found most interesting. More to come soon I'm sure.

Dimanche à Bamako from Frank Bongers on Vimeo.

On a cloudy Sunday, I decided to bring some color in my life and visit my friend Laurence Baeyens's shop in Louvain, Belgium.

Laurence's shop features clothes made in her own workshop in Mali (Africa) and other brands that are complementary to her own collection.

The shop is located at Halfmaartstraat 17 3000 Leuven – more info at

This short movie was shot on a Canon 7D, mostly with a Canon 50mm lens and a few shots with the kit lens (18-135mm) – more info at

This one has some good slow motion included:

Racetown Motocross- Canon 7D from Simon Cudby on Vimeo.

Just got the camera yesterday. I am a pro still photographer, with some experience with a Panasonic HVX200.

A Canon 7D Short: Thursday Night from gnarly bay on Vimeo.

Most Thursdays we go to a local bar in Westerly, RI called Perks and Corks. Our friends Colin and Josh bartend there. They get us good and liquored up.

Last Thursday, we received our Canon 7D in the mail, and it only made sense to try the thing out to see what it could do. A really cool local band called Sunday Gravy was playing and we captured their performance of ‘No Woman, No Cry.”

This is our first foray into the world of DSLRs, and it completely blew us away. It really is an amazingly…uhhh…liberating, simple, and low-profile filmmaking tool. Much thanks to Josh for letting us borrow his 35mm 1.4L….and thanks to the Zoom H4n for hanging out in the corner and getting great sound (that was our first time using it, and we were really impressed)

The edit is pretty straight forward. There's no color correction and we chopped the song up to make it look like we had more than one camera filming.

Enjoy and feel free to ask any questions.

Cologne Marathon from Flow Media on Vimeo.

A first test on the Canon 7D with a bunch of wobbly shots from this years Cologne Marathon to get a bit used to the new technique before using it in the field in tougher conditions. Feels like there is a lot to learn about it…

The quality, compared to classic film cameras, is quite amazing, but for me the best of it is, that you can now easily switch between photo and film with one button and i don't need two cameras, what makes work in the field for me way easier.

To have a look at the full quality download the film below.

Shot with a 50mm/1,4, no tripod, no extras. 1080i, 24p.
