Re: ea50 wedding footage

No worries mate :) I have another wedding this weekend, a higher end one with a very nice venue, I only hope the weather will allow for outdoor shooting and that the couple will allow me to post the video. They have a falcon that will fly over the rings in church...:

Noa - what 85mm lens/adapter are you using? - As a solo shooter the though of faffing with lens changes is a bit daunting but offset against struggling with dark reception venues - 1.4 would be lovely!

Re: ea50 wedding footage

I use a Kipon adapter, it doesn't communicate with the body.

Re: ea50 wedding footage

Is it the Samyang lens?

Is this the adapter?

No, the one I have is without any electronics and yes, it's for my samyang lenses.

Re: ea50 wedding footage

Do you have the model number Noa? There seem to be a few EOS adapters on the Kipon website

Re: ea50 wedding footage

I don't have the direct link anymore but on my orderpage when I bought the adapter it states: "Kipon Lens Mount Adapter (Canon EF/EOS to Sony NEX) "

Re: ea50 wedding footage

Your wedding sample is nice Noa! - How do you use your CX750 cameras handheld? - do you use monopod/tripod/cage or simply hold in your palm? - Similar size to my TM900 cameras and I handheld one once as, like the CX750 they're good in low light, but I felt the size made me look like an uninvited guest rather than the paid videoguy!

Only reason I film with an EA50 rather than my VG20 which is more than capable of capturing a wedding.

I use the VG20 with 16mm f2.8 lens on my slider for bride prep/church type shots, and on my Steadicam Merlin for bride and groom stuff and first dance - it looks ok mounted on something lol!

Re: ea50 wedding footage

It's really easy to use and very lightwheight and stable (with the camera's magic eye :)), I can go fast from tripod to handheld and it's more stable then what I can get out of my ea50. The only thing I manually adjust is the exposure through that small button on front but let the camera handle focus in auto. When I have that loupe on the lcdscreen I can't access the touchscreen controlls but if I need to then that loupe also hangs around my neck with a strap so I could trow it off to have access to the screen.
