There's an old joke that shooting with available light meant using every light available on the truck. Fortunately, with Canon's new generation of HD capable DSLR's, the term "available light" means what it ought to. Vince LaForet's work with HDDSLR cameras is a great example of using both ambient and specular light present at locations in order to not only expose an image but effectively telling a very visually compelling story. Check out "The Cabbie", the first in the installment of Canon...
Here is a quick video shot with 2 Canon 7D's and 2 Stead-DSLRs. More info on the steadycam rig at www.SteadDSLR.com
This movie was filmed entirely in one shot.
Editing with the Canon 7d and Final Cut Pro couldn't be easier, here are some tips to help you get started.

This is the god lens. The Canon EF 50mm 1.2. I could shoot with this lens all day long and have a big smile on my face.
You'll have to click through to see the picture but minamac88 used their Canon EOS7D to create a magnificent light image. And they posted all the settings they used so you, too, can take a stab at making your own Batman light picture.
I'm in the middle of a project right now that uses POV for every shot. One of these shots involves a person swinging a golf club. A normal steadi-cam doesn't work very well for this, so I thought it might be easier to just build a helmet cam. Here's how I did it:
My first attempt at a helmet cam, yielded ok results, but I wanted something even better. The downside to all of this was cost, but it is very close to what I want now.
Thanks to TV.com for pointing out how cool a video from an incredibily uncool band can be!

"Picture Perfect" is a five minute film that won Best Cinematography in the Gainesville 3 Day Film Challenge in January 2012. A Portuguese photographer struggling to reconnect with his artistic passion admires a woman from afar. Made in two days with three Canon 7Ds and various Canon lenses.

I shot this X-Men: First Class Spoof with the new Technicolor CineStyle picture profile (it was a 5d, as well). I had done some initial testing, when the profile first came out, but never shot a real project on it. This X-Men short is my first real world experience with the profile.

Has anyone had the good fortune to use this lens? It looks amazing.
Ok, I know this is a Canon 7D site, but I thought this how-to on replacing the LCD cover on a Canon 5D Mark II was really useful!
watch the video
Good for a laugh.....enjoy!
This is incredible... part Call of Duty, part oil on canvas... sovietmontage.com UPDATE: Follow us on Twitter! twitter.com/?sovietmontage

The new and improved Bionic Man... sort of. This film was shot with a Canon 7d, Kessler Slider, and Glidecam. We used a Pentax Super Takumar 50 1.4 and Canon EF-S 18-55 for lenses. It was edited with FCP 7 and graded with Color 1.5. Thanks for watching!
Interesting clip about a Canon concept camera. This camera is amazing and seems plausible in the next few years. Looks like photography as we know it might be replaced entirely, in the not too distant future. What do you think?
Here is a cool video for Trent Reznor's (NIN) side project How to Destroy Angels. It was directed by Rupert Sanders. It looks like it may have been filmed with a Canon DSLR, but it could be a Red camera, as well. If someone knows for sure, send a link with the info.

Last week I talked about the video / image side of things, and as promised here is the audio side. Sound is integral to all studio productions, but for most student and low budget production, it's the last thing filmmakers seem to think about, and one of the most noticeable problems with low budget stuff. Sound IS half the experience, and yet it is usually all but forgotten come production.
Equipment list for the low budget crowd Let's assume you have a script (not just an idea) and have gotten your pre production out of the way. These are both incredibly important and should not be taken lightly, especially when you have no budget. So you have an awesome film and all of your ducks are in a row, what do you bring with you to the shoot... or what is really necessary?
I love everything about this video. The story is great, the song is wonderful, and the cinematography is pretty hot too.
Check out Todd from CanonPhotoBlog's handheld still of the moon..... Wow. "I handheld my Canon 7D with a 300mm f2.8mm plus a 2x teleconverter. About 15 pounds....f5.6, ISO 400, 1/60 shutter speed. "
Great video from Peter Cote @ My DSLR Show demystifying the jell-o cam effect!
VIA Jared Abrams at Cinema5D Seems like Showtime's Californication team are poised to start shooting some footage on the 7D.
According to LAist, this movie was shot on a Canon 7D. Have to say, the look is great, but the story is not that appealing, despite this taking place in my neighborhood.
