dslr cinematography – resources

Inaugural chaos here in the northwest DC suburbs followed by a helluva cold have kept me out of the blog game for a hot minute.  But while I’ve been defragging, so to speak, I did a bit of looking around at the various communities forming out there focused on making films with the Canon 5D Mark II and other DSLR cameras shooting video.

I first learned about cinema5d.com reading Stu Maschwitz’s latest blog post.  Check out Stu’s post for a lot of great examples of the black crush issue many 5dmarkii users have been talking about.  Stu found out about the fix for this issue thanks to Keith Paisley’s cinema5d forum post.  Essentially, download QT 7.6 and *presto* no more black crush.  Of course, if you’re mid project you might not want to change anything because you will seriously alter any color grades you’ve made so far.  And also, be careful for any other upgrade gotchas changing your QT version may introduce into your system.

DVinfo.net has created a new subforum: Canon EOS 5D Mark II for HD.  I’ve found this to be a very cool forum where video guys are looking at a still camera.  Got a question about steadicams, xlr adapters, or anything else a DoP might know post it here.

Oppositely, over at dpreview.com the still photography guys (and girls I’m sure, sorry ladies) are looking at the video capabilities as a whole new world opening before them.  If you’ve got a question about lenses, flashes, or anything else still-photog-centric, this is the place to ask.

If you’ve got another great DSLR cinematography resource post a comment and share!  I leave you with a little bit of 5dmarkii holy-moly compliments of renowned wild bird photographer Romy Ocon
