While stills photography is my first passion, I do dabble in video now and then. Nearly all DSLR’s these days have some sort of video function to them and quite a few of them shoot in HD. The 1DX and 5D Mk2 are no exception, and this video was created with these two cameras.
Here’s a simple ‘talking head’ video used as a pre-roll on a blog site.
I used the 5D with a 50mm 1.2 Canon L Series lens for the locked off work and a 1DX with a 24-70mm 2.8 L Series lens as my handheld. All editing and post was done in Final Cut Pro – such a simple app to get a handle on and also one that expands with your learning capacity. Very few apps do this well, but FCP is one of the.
