You and me both man, I rarely even let people touch my stuff :), though as I've gotten more and more gear ( and I hate making more than one trip of course :) ). I have begun to let people take a couple of stands etc... if I'm offered.

Nice video, and I gotta say that from what it looks like there, I don't have a lot of concerns on the "rolling shutter" business, because even with just a hint of it on the drummers sticks where it was making the largest amount of movement it sure wasn't all that bad.

Thanks for sharing.

It's so consistent, it looks like a multicam shoot.
I basically did the wide shot 1st.... and never altered the camera settings ( other than focus and zoom ) for the other 5 takes. 1080 24p HQ, 3200wb, -3 gain, f4-ish, 180 degree shutter, no PP's.

the musician on the piano had to leave after the 1st take.... so you only see him a few times and there was a lot of clutter behind him so I did not put much light over there.
