Re: 5d Video shooting and shutter speeds and wide angle lens recommendation

Vincent Laforet suggests shooting at 1/40 or 1/50 at 30fps is more filmic....
I have recently ditched the ND filters in favour of higher shutter speeds, after reading some posts here.
I do not notice any real problems with the image, even with some movement of either camera or subject. But I do think the shots may have less flare, better color representation, and may be sharper.
It may be due to the ND filter quality, but I have been using Singh Ray variable ND and Tiffen 1.2, .9, and .6.
Also, when trying to match a 70d, 5d, and xa10, using ND makes things a little more complicated.
Not sure how high I went, but I am under a rather intense Malian sun...

I just bought Rokinon's 24mm T1.5 lens and its great. It is all manual, however the focus is very smooth, and because the aperture is de-clicked you have great control over it.
