ginter-fy your 5D & 7D

This Memorial Day weekend, while you’re grilling, beaching and what have you, remember the true reason we are celebrating: to commemorate the lives of the men and women who have died in service to our country.

And I can’t think of a better way for this blogger to celebrate than paying respects to the excellent knowledge and video tutorials Lt. Tyler Ginter of the 55th Combat Camera Company has bestowed on the DSLR filmmaking community.

Lt. Ginter, thank you for all that you, and the men and women you serve with, have done and continue to do for our great country.

blog bomb – 5dmkii manual control!

Picture 3

We spoke and Canon listened!  No more need to compromise with inferior workarounds, this firmware update makes the 5dmkii perform like a video camera that also takes ridiculously awesome stills.  Does this added firmware, with the implication of more to come down the road (24p anyone?), effectively trump the release of Red’s Scarlet?  With the 5dmkii’s 1080p and a full frame 24mm x 36mm sensor, all Scarlet has on the it is 3k image capture, 24p, over and under-cranking… ok maybe that comment is more provocative than plausible.  But with the tag line An epic begins with M I do believe Canon has flipped the flame switch to on.

For my new freelance business (have I mentioned I went freelance?) the 5dmkii could totally be the defacto webisode camera of choice.  Knowing that one should always produce with broadcast hd standards in mind, 30p is a great source frame rate for video destined for the web and can be easily dropped into a 29.97 time line and printed to HDCAM SR, IMX, DigiBeta or what have you.  All that with a little bit of ye olde ProRes transcode and Color grading, of course.

LATimes.com, WashingtonPost.com, NYTimes.com; take a page out of the Tyler Ginter combat photographer’s handbook and put these puppies in the field.  The 5dmkii very well could become the video journalist’s weapon of choice. Great stills, great video, and with a little bit of help solid sound.  Check out Tyler’s demo of the 5dmkii combined with a  Sennheiser Evolution G2 100 wireless lavalier mic:

Gotta run to a meeting of the minds, but hope this news gets your engines revved.

how to – shoot hd video with 5dmarkii

Ever find a kindred spirit through the power of Vimeo contact random awesomeness?

Thanks to Tristan Tom for posting a comment here.  Through Tristan’s blog I found a link to the above video produced by Tyler Ginter.

Tyler’s got a kick ass blog himself and is starting to get some good attention from the folks over at FreshDV.  Bonusly, my Dad got stationed at Fort Meade way back in the day, which lead to him meeting my Mom at some officer’s ball, which lead to me, which lead to this blog, which resulted in the moment you find yourself in right now.  Sort of.  Well, how ’bout that.

Anywho, Tyler’s stuff is definitely worth checking out.  And you can see the hd version of his tutorial right here.
