/// Shot by a Canon! T2i T3i etc...

It seems there are an abundance around here of shorts (and a rare feature or two) shot with:
- Canon EOS 550D/EOS Rebel T2i/EOS Kiss X4
- Canon EOS 600D/EOS Rebel T3i/EOS Kiss X5
- a few Canon EOS 5D Mark II
- and other Canon camera products

I thought it might be sensible to start a thread dedicated to displaying them with the intent of being able to see how each other is using the same tool for different outcomes and maybe/likely swap know-how kinda specific to that line.



With each filmmaker's permission, and in no particular order, I'd like to begin with several I've culled from a forum search (or two ).

T2i - klbasey

7D & T3i - Dreadylocks
For the upcoming "Stockholm Santa."


550D/T2i - NickClapper & Phil Arntz
For the upcoming "The Flight of the Flamingo."http://vimeo.com/40192746


5Dmk2 - Gonzo_Entertainment

Hey, are you using that same camera for "The Kohlman Files"?

H3ll! That looks almost pretty d@mn good!
Primarily just needs technical skills work on lighting, IMHO.
Hmmm... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y8iK1YaBHDw

ADDENDUM: Any interest on a similar GH2 thread? Is there enough content for such?

Most of wheargrinder's stuff, brianluce's upcoming work and a chunk of of Kholi's stuff is all GH2, I think it warrants a thread.

Gonzo's "The Island" is another 5D piece.

Another Phil_UK T2i Piece:

All of our stuff is Canon 7D:

Great!

Can I get a second on a "Shot by a GH2" thread nomination?!

Here 2 videos from Kristof Brandl, made with Canon 60D, with a very cinematic look.

http://vimeo.com/39786864

http://vimeo.com/39011209



I directed an advertising with Canon 5D. Not a film but, i tried to get some film language on this.

Cool resource, ray

One small correction, Stockholm Santa was shot on the 7D. Only the one-scene re-shoot was shot on the T3i.

Thank you, miss D.

Correction made.



Yeah, my dual intention is both A) for users of the same models (and it looks like the pretty much the whole EOS series) to be able to relatively rapidly compare what they're doing to what their "base equipment peers" are doing to exchange techniques through explicit inquiry or passive reverse engineering, and B) for EOS and GH1/2 users to compare and contrast subtle differences between what a Canon APS-C sensor and a Panasonic micro four thirds sensor (M43) is able to output.

Even with my untrained DSLR nubie eye I can see some differences the lenses themselves make.


I hope you guys get to pick up a thing or two from each other. GL!

This is all shot on T2i:

http://vimeo.com/user4704924/videos

Then, there's the subway scene from this movie, shot on the 7D (which is basically identical to the T2i, for filmmaking purposes).

Why do I point this out? The more footage I see, the more I've come to realize that lighting is really all that matters, and you can use pretty much any camera you want.

Give me an Arri Alexa, and my footage is still gonna look like crap (or at least not up to Hollywood standards). Give Matthew Libatique (DP for Black Swan) a 7D, and almost nobody will be able to differentiate between his 7D footage and anything else they see. That's because Matthew Libatique is a skilled DP who knows how to light, and I am not.

That's not to say that it isn't worth your time to compare cameras. There are many reasons why you might want one over another. I only mean to say that when people compare and discuss footage, I personally think that their lighting techniques should take the forefront of the conversation, and the camera not so much.

I hope I'm not being a party-pooper. I do think these two threads were a great idea, Ray.

No, sir.
Sincerely, I don't take legit discussion of the elements that go into a filmmaking as being any shade of negative.

Your point about the importance of lighting and the value that it brings to an image is EXACTLY part of what I wanted to root out of the woods, so to speak.

Watching a random short here and there, and vaguely paying a mote of attention as to the rudimentary conditions under which it may have been acquired is not really conducive to any sensible analytical take away.
By lining them up in a big ol' string anyone can go down the list, make their own observations, such as your own, provide observations and (hopefully) engage in a mature conversation that I and many have come to expect from the... frankly... delightful community workshop atmosphere IndieTalk.com provides to nascent filmmakers.

But I thought it most appropriate to begin with the central piece of hardware that we all pretty much define on which side of the lens a problem or effect occurs.
The camera is the pivot point.
The fulcrum.
It is only a tool I'll concede until the cows come home, but a critical tool at the heart of filmmaking.

Thank you, as well.

I think that first post needs a lot of cleaning.

I thought the point was to show quality stuff.

I personally love this channel on Vimeo (T2i then GH2)

No sir.
It's to see how far the medium can be pushed and to overcome our perceptual rather than technological limitations.

What I can do with a kitchen knife and what Steven Seagal can do with a kitchen knife ain't even the same.


Why?

How?


Answering these sort of questions is the point of this thread.
Not really to critique anyone's anything.




And BTW, nice find and contribution with David Linberg's material.
Very nice.

Do you think my Canon T2I footage is up to par with the others? I am terrible at judging my own footage/art.
