Useful 5D Mark II tutorial?


I'm not sure if I'm allowed to recommend a tutorial/class here? If not, I do apologize.
But since there are a lot of references to commercial products everywhere on this forum, I guess a user review would be ok?

Last term I took a few classes at One of them was the DOP210 course with professors Stu Maschwitz and Mike Seymour, which deals with the issues using the Canon 5D Mark II (and even the 7D) as a film making tool. I found the class very educational and can recommend it. After reading many posts on this forum I think this class will answer many of the questions that I usually find here. And just to be clear I don't have anything to do with fxphd besides taking a few classes there. This is only a friendly tip for anyone interested. I just enjoy useful tutorials when I can find them. This is one of them. I just found out that the class also is available for the upcoming term, if you're interested.

Here's a overview of the course:

Class 1: Establishing the pro's and con's of DSLR cinematography and getting outside to shoot on the streets of the Ginza district in Tokyo with the 5D mk2.

Class 2: Part of the Ginza shoot post workflow and looking at the difference between the main camera's in the DSLR cinematography market.

Class 3: Shooting on the sly in the Tsukiji fish market and how to shoot with grading in mind. Stu walks us through grading in AE with Magic Bullet.

Class 4: Shooting on the busy streets in Harajuku, Stu discusses lenses and lens choices and how they effect composition and storytelling.

Class 5: Dealing with camera mobility and adding virtual weight to your shots.

Class 6: Using optical filters vs digital filters in post and the problem of rolling shutter.

Class 8: Using the 5D Mark II in rugged and combat situations. With 1st Lieutenant Tyler Ginter of the US Army 55th Signal Company

Class 9: A technical look at the files produced by DSLR's including image quality, processing, and keyability.

Class 10: A continuation of a keying example from last week, a discussion of the Canon 5d vs. 7d, a look at the new Magic Bullet Mojo plugin, and a wrap up conversation with Stu.

Best of luck with your DSLR shooting.
