(Another) Game Changer

The DSLR HD video revolution is continuing and this time with 1080 24p in the new Canon EOS 7D. This camera looks to be really amazing. The body only is $1699, then you'll just need to supply lenses (and any of the EF flavor will work). I won't get into the other tech specs as you can read that elsewhere, but they are impressive especially for the money.

I've been on a waiting list for the Panasonic Lumix GH1 for about two months, and now I'm on the waiting list for the Canon 7D. The 7D is (now) my camera of choice, so hopefully I won't have to wait too long.

Check out these great looking videos from Philip Bloom who got to test a pre-release version of the camera...

Remember, this is being shot with a STILL CAMERA. Amazing DOF. Very low noise. Incredibly sharp. I wonder if this is the beginning of the end for DOF adapters like the Letus or Redrock?

Who Am I?

I'm a filmmaker who's produced & directed five feature films including the comedy SPILT MILK (available on iTunes), the new horror/thriller PHOBIA (on iTunes) and the action/thiller KILLING DOWN (which you can buy or rent at pretty much all the usual places).

I also created the Streamy and Webby award-winning web series PINK, which to date has been viewed online around 10 MILLION times at places like YouTube, Hulu, Koldcast and TheWB.com. And speaking of TheWB.com, I also produced and directed an online thriller for them called EXPOSED. It was released summer 2010. And most recently I created a new online sci-fi series called CONTINUUM, which is part of the online indie TV network JTS.tv - Just The Story and NOW available via VOD through indie platform Distrify.

Oh, and I don't shoot weddings. Thanks for asking though.
