First Ever User-Generated HD Contest Vimeo and Canon have launched this wonderful contest for filmmakers shooting on Canon's EOS 7D DSLR.
"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.
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...
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.

This movie was filmed entirely in one shot.
I love everything about this video. The story is great, the song is wonderful, and the cinematography is pretty hot too.
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.
Thanks to TV.com for pointing out how cool a video from an incredibily uncool band can be!
Editing with the Canon 7d and Final Cut Pro couldn't be easier, here are some tips to help you get started.
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.

Canon EOS 7D Firmware Update v1.2.1 Canon's updated the 7D firmware. First time since the November 2009 patches.
I recently shot a short film for director Keegan Uhl for Canon’s Beyond the Still contest and our film “The Beach” won first place. We had a lot of fantastic support getting the film done, and I’m really glad to see people liked what we put together. Keegan put in a ton of work and it’s always rewarding to win something like this, especially when the film was done all out-of-pocket. My Gaffer on the film, Matt Irwin was awesome as well. He provided a lot of his own equipment, and even provide...
Hello crowd! Welcome to one of the first WonderHowTo Worlds!!! We're huge fans of the 7D, but as fandom goes, we are no experts.
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!

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?

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.

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.
