A new Corporate video shot entierly on Canon 7D
Jean-Philippe Archibald Jean-Philippe Archibald is offline June 29th, 2010, 12:31 PM

Hi,

I finished recently a corporate video with the 7D. A few months ago I posted another corporate video I did with the 7D and it generated a pretty cool discussion here: http://www.dvinfo.net/forum/eos-7d-s...-canon-7d.html

So I would really like to get some comments about this one:


This one was less rushed, I had a lot of time to do better shots visually. I'm still impressed with the 7D. A wonderful tool.

Sound: Samson UHF wireless system with the Zoom H4n.

Lenses: Sigma 17-70 f2.8, Samyang 85 f1.4 and two very old nikkor lens: 50mm f1.4 and 28mm f2.8

I also used a Glidetrack and a steady stick on a few shots.

Your comments or questions are welcome!

Forgot to mention:

The video is in french. It's about young people who choose to a non-traditionnal carreer (a career typically for the opposite gender).

Hi Jean-Phillippe,

C'est magnifique! C'est bon! (I took a few years of French a loooonnng time ago :)

Wonderful video. Me and my wife are almost sold on the 7D, and she thinks your video is awesome too!

Still reading up on the 7D, but curious to know how you used (adapter?) your Nikkor lenses on the 7D.

Best,

Looks great.
I'm picking up a 5D today and this was a hard decision between the 7D.
What ISO were you typical using?

Thanks

Thank you very much for your comments.

@Jeff: Yes, I use a mechanical adapter I bought on eBay for 10$. Work OK, but there is a little play in it so it's hard to use the lens with a follow focus. The lens tend to rotate a few milimeters within the mount. And I can't acheive infinity focus with it. If you are serious about using Nikon lenses, I suggest you buy a better crafted one like the photodiox pro which I believe is about 100$

@Simon: I try to keep the ISO the lower possible, but I dial anything I need to get proper exposure below 1250 ISo without thinking. The noise only start to bother me at 1600 ISO.

I worked on a feature last year with the 5D and we used 6400 ISO often and the footage looked pretty clean with a bit of noise reduction applyed in after effect.

Charlie: I really like it. I did not tried any fancy shoulder rig yet, but the steady stick allow me to work fast and steady and it cost a fraction of the cost of other true rigs.

I removed the handle and added a manfrotto quick release on it. I use it with the camera strap around my neck fully extended, and my two hands on the camera.

Thanks for yours... it blows me away that people spend mega $$ on shoulder rigs (mostly for show IMO) and forget simple things like the Steady Stick

Very nice. Did you shoot under any presets to get your image flat so you could color correct later? What kind of color correction did you do?

@Morgan:

I shot using the neutral preset, with sharpness and contrast all the way down, saturation down one notch. I graded all the shots using magic bullet looks, some more than others, basicly to enhance the contrast, punch the colors, add some vignetting.

Thanks for watching!
