I’ve been getting more and more into photography over the past year and have been eating up tutorials on speedlights, Lightroom and much more. Today I saw this video on FStoppers and thought I’d share it with you guys. With these kinds of videos you can always walk away with something practical. Love the camera point of view idea.
This is the adapter I used, its really cheap ($6.30!) and works great!
Fotodiox Black M42 Lens to Canon EOS DSLR Adapter.
Only a few days left to take advantage of these great rebates. If I had the money, I’d be picking up a 60D right now. Love those instant rebates!
There are a ton of deals going on at B&H for a very short time. Thought I would list them for you guys here. The Canon rebates end in 2 days and I am being told the 60D, T3i, and 7D deals won’t be around long.
[sws_grey_box box_size="630"] Update 7/30/12 – Looks like the 60D and T3i deals are now over. The Macbook deal is still going though. [/sws_grey_box]
Canon has release yet another HDSLR. The Canon T4i hasn’t added too much to what Canon currently offers. Autofocus during filming, angled touch screen lcd, and improved low-light sensitivity are some of the new features we’re seeing on this camera.
Canon also has announced a new 40mm Pancake lens. This lens is one of the new video optimized lenses from Canon. So you will find it to be much more quiet compared to other lenses. I am interested to see where Canon takes this idea going forward.
There is a wonderful world of manual lenses out there. This guide is dedicated to using Nikkor lenses on Canon, and other camera mounts. Using a Nikon to Canon adapter you can bring these incredible lenses back to life.
UPDATE: Disregard the use of paper to tighten the lens adapter to the lens. There are actually small slits on each of the 3 lips that you can widen to tighten the lens adapter. Better yet, check out the Redrock Micro Nikon to EOS adapter which uses 3 screws to adjust play.
Over the past 2 years I’ve come up with a couple tips for making using photography lenses for video easier. I would love to hear what you do to prep your lenses for video production.
What are the best prime lenses for shooting DSLR video? In this episode I share what I have found works well for me.
Even with all these other cameras coming out, I am still a huge fan of my 7D. The pro level body and features have proved themselves time after time. And if another camera ever comes out that rivals it, I know the 7D has a great resale value. So take advantage of this great deal!
