My First Project with 5DMKII

The scenes with the plane and speedboats was shot on a Canon HG10 (Hand-cam). My bag was to heavy and big to pull out the 5D. The speedboat... well I didn;t want to loose it to the ocean or get it wet.

Hi Peter,
No. It was the Glidecam HD2000. This is the medium sized rig for cameras that weigh between 4 to 6lbs.
Check out the link:

Thanks for the comments....it was a great deal of fun. It was fun shooting and editing this project.

Canon 5D Mk11 Steadicam combination

Do you have any tips for this combination, such as focus and exposure and zoom. Have you discovered some optimum settings that allow you to use this lens, steadicam, camera combination without stopping to make adjustments?

There is almost no avoiding having to stop and make adjustments. That is unless you remain the same distance from your subject and the lighting + white balance never changes. Otherwise, you probably want to stop down as much as possible and practice adjusting exposure and focus on the fly. If you are far enough from the subject, you can focus to infinite and remain in good focus while moving.

Just a tip, you can adjust ISO, shutter and aperture while recording video. I think you have to stop recording in order to adjust white balance.
