The world upside down.. getting images like that from a photocamera. that looked great (you must get tired of hearing this)

How do you handle the handheld footage, is it easy to deal with without the camera shaking to much?

i like the ability to shoot wider than f2.8. many cases call for something 2.8 and even higher, when you need deeper depth of field, but having options is always good. i guess it comes down to the choice in depth or the choice in focal length. i switch primes out pretty quickly, but also pre-visualize what i want and that tells me what lens to use.

Great use of the groom & bride reveal audio. So amazingly clear!

so essentially the 7d rocks for the visuals, but you abandon using it for audio (same problems as the 5d then?) and use an external solution that you sync in post?
yep, same issues as the 5d. being stuck with auto gain is just too much for us. syncing in post is a pain, but i do love the clarity.

matt,

if i did my job right, nobody would. you can certainly benefit from having two viewpoints, two perspectives, and my goal was to organize myself in a way to achieve that, but with only one person.

louis,

i left bride prep to shoot the groom, and then came back for her putting her dress on.

noa,

we don't shoot anything truly handheld. the rolling shutter appears to be less but we still use a monopod or shoulder rig.

I just got back from a wedding in Toronto I shot and I was talking to someone in the video business and he had nothing but the best things to say about Stillmotion, after watching some of the previews I now know why.

Great work!

No, if you look at the details he is using all off camera audio recording devices and microphones.
