The ultimate Introduction to DSLR Filmmaking | Basic Tutorial

or copy the link

A tutorial by Fenchel & Janisch Facebook: YouTube: This introduction to DSLR video is divided into six parts. Learn how to set up your camera, shoot in daylight and at night. This tutorial shows you how to get the cinematic film look that so many people are talking about. In the fall of 2008 Vincent Laforet was the first one to use the Canon EOS 5D Mark II which was the first digital SLR capable of recording full HD video. The short film he shot mostly at night, called “Reverie”, become popular over night. Something that Canon never intended got more and more in focus of amateur filmmakers all over the world: Shooting films and commercials with a stills camera. It only took a few month and the first accessories were released. Since then a lot has happened and a lot of TV shows like “House MD” or “CSI Miami” used DSLRs on set. Philip Bloom, another pioneer in digital filmmaking, used cameras on the Lucas Film production “Red Tails”. The small body and the great image quality has fascinated international acclaimed cinematographers like Rodney Charters (“24”). In independent cinema those cameras became indispensable.

One of the best, most compiled videos I have seen for beginners. Thank you.

Dmitry Kosov says:

50mm is 50mm on any sensor… you only get different frame size. Roughly speaking, with 50mm lens with DX sensor you’d get the same photo as with ~75mm lens with FX sensor. Sincerely yours, Captain Obvious.

Beshar AL Azzawi says:

I have the Canon 50mm f/1.4 and always find it difficult to stabilize the image when using a steadicam!! Its not the case when using the kit lens that comes with the EOS 600D. Could you please tell me, apart from a tripod, what do you use to have a smooth stabilized image when using a prime lens?

Thanks for this. It made a lot of things easier and was easy to understand.

No, it’s a great camera, but if you don’t know which lens is good for it, it might be 2 advanced for you. A good lens I own myself is the: 17-55mm 2.8 IS, it’s all you need.

7d can be fine but better option would be a canon 550d, 60d or 5d, because you can hack it with magic lantern
