Although I used a 7D for this, i believe its similar to t2i in video image quality and sensor size, though its projected only on a 38.5 x 18 feet screen (11.7 x 5.5 m). Smaller that what your projecting in on.


Mostly using the tokina 11-16 on the wides, also other nikon lenses, 50 f1.4, 80-200 f2.8 and a mamiya mid format 80mmf1.9.

I just did the preview at the digital cinema yesterday, and the footage projected really,amazingly, well.

Heres a pic of the theater and screen; yours is like double this size.

Keep the ISO's below 800 if you can. I have used 1600 or even higher in that scene in the cave, its tricky.

But I'm glad it was acceptable.

But the most important on cam accessory you should have on set if I have to name the most important is a high res monitor, you must hook up via hdmi, NOT the usb rca cable.
Look at the BTS video, I use it in all the scenes except underwater.

I have an LCD finder, its not enough. I'm past forty, I have poor eyesight and wear contacts.

The monitor will save most of your footage. I had an SD 7 inch lcd before, it was not enough. It wont show you proper focus especially with your 50mm lens.

So please invest in one. Good luck.

While i have my own friction follow focus, the scenes I shot did not involve a rack so I did not use it.

ff focus:

I also used my own mattebox to control flare and hold my filters, which by the way you should also have a couple. ND grads and NDs. Polarizers could also come in handy.

heres my mattebox,

also used my own diy mini skater for the food shots,

as for the monitor, its great for getting your shots in focus, batteries go a long way.
