T2i on narrative WW2 short film "The Bridge"
Marlon Torres Marlon Torres is offline February 27th, 2010, 02:14 PM


When I heard that Canon’s upcoming 550D (Rebel T2i) was gonna have the same video quality as the 7D for half the price, I thought it was too good to be true.

Well, all I can say is, if the quality isn’t the same, it’s certainly damn close because I can’t tell the difference. I was so happy with the test footage that I decided to take a gamble and shoot one of my scenes from my WW2 film “The Bridge” on the T2i just to see how it would match up with the rest of the movie (prior, the film was being shot with the 7D and 5D Mark II). The result? It fit perfectly like like a glove with the rest of the footage.

I also threw the camera on a Steadicam Merlin. I was little worried that it was a little too light for it but with the heavy lens, it seemed to work fine.

Thank you Canon for this amazing piece of hardware. You are truly making the art of filmmaking accessible to everyone!

For more of my thoughts on the camera, check out my blog at www.torresstudios.com

And there you have it.

For my purposes, this clip answers the "Good Enough?" question, raised by Robert Capps in the 17.09 issue of Wired Magazine.

As Stu Maschwitz said on his ProLost blog..."No More Excuses".

Yeehaa


[that was quick work, Marlon, thanks for posting]

Happens everytime

Every time I see one of your clips and sells me. When I saw the first one with the 7d I was stuck on the Mark II. After watching I said hey why not the 7D. Now I am once again going with the flow. Excellent work from you every time. I do have to ask though what lens are you using?

I would rethink character and camera blocking. When he stops, on the close up, use a slow dolly in effect or dolly out (handheld or steadycam, depending on what effect you want), so that the message "someone is there" comes better across. Or you can do a tripod shot, to have a contrast from moving shots to indicate the stasis of the scene is broken. Or, on the close up you can let him walk out of frame towards the guy under tree. Otherwise directing looks a little flat.

But you are the director (I assume you are), so you decide.


But we havent seen the entire piece. No judgement here.

As of t2i demostration: WOW!


By the way, how is it with Rolling Shutter Jam? Still present as much as in 7d?
