Canon EOS 7D as a video camera Workshop – Sunday March 11th, 2012

Host – Nelson Manning

As camera technology evolves, we are beginning to see a merging of video cameras and still photography DSLR cameras.  The Canon 7D is one of the most powerful results of this merger.  Capable of shooting video at 24 fps and 1080 p, the 7D has a distinctive “film” look that many members find preferable to other high end digital camera options.  Nelson Manning will guide members through the basic functions and considerations of using the 7D as a video camera, as well as tips and tricks for getting the most out of your image.
