I currently own a Canon Gl2, and have recently seen some test footage from a T2i which has significantly better than the footage I can get from my Gl2, probably due to the smaller sensor on my Gl2. My question is would it be wise selling my Gl2 and buying a T2i to replace it, and possibly purchase an additional lens for the T2i? I will mainly be using it for Narrative shorts. Thanks!
I currently have a Sony 1000u but I am looking to buy another camera. I am considering the Canon 7d or perhaps the T3i. But I wanna know are there other camera (video) that I should consider. Price range up to about $1600. Thanks
Hello guys! I need some help shooting a video that I will be sending on a local tv station. I am just doing some b-rolls for a motocross event and I will be using a dsrl (canon t2i.) I know that it needs to be 30 fps & 1/60th shutter speed. I might set my aperture to f15 to get dof and 100-200 for the ISO. I will be shooting mostly wide shots and I just want to get the best exposure as possible. I'll be using the Daylight preset for my WB. Will these settings work?
Had a huge client shoot a couple of days ago, and I shot with my trusty XL-H1. I haven't gone tapeless quite yet! I hadn't used the camera in a while, but I cleaned and tested before my shoot.
I am struggling to decide between the Panasonic TM/HS-900 and the Canon Vixia HF G10. The camera will be use for family movies and ocasional very low budget documentaries and some work like live theater recording and industrial video.
The G10 is said to have outstanding low light capabilities, which is a real plus for shooting indoor with ambient light for home movies and documentaries, but the G10 is USD 400 more than the TM900.
Hi there! I want to know if there is a correct way of white balancing video on dslrs. I have a Canon t2i and I really want to stay away from auto white balance as much as possible. I normally use presets like daylight (on a sunny day where the light is harsh) but what do you use when your indoors and there are a lot of different lights that can mess up your white balance?
Any tips/comments/suggestions are welcome!
Thanks!<span style="white-space: pre;"> </span>
Working away on a few video projects. This one is an SNL parody, has a lot of energy and fun cast. Hope you enjoy. Music video done for a Bat Mitzvah event.
Once again, I would like to thank Videomaker for enhancing and developing some of my skills. Don't know where I would be without you.

I know this sounds stupid. What would be the main difference between 24fps & 30fps? I know filmmakers use 24fps to have that "film" look but why do some people use 30fps? What if you were to do a product commercial or an event video such as wedding or concert, what frame rate would you use and why? Is it just for the aesthetic look of video to do 24fps? I am a little bit confused by this.
Any ideas/comments are greatly appreciated!
I've been using the HV30 for almost a year now, and i was noticing i almost always have to edit the video in the post to make the visuals clear, because it's pretty grainy. Is there anything i can do to make the video more crisp on the camera itself?
