What’s in a name anyway..?

Per Jared at Cinema 5D, shooting video with a DSLR now has a formal name.  Ready..?   It’s not HD-DSLR, it’s not Video DSLR, it’s HDSLR.  Thanks for formalizing it for us Jared.  Your assertion has given HDSLR Shooter the legitimacy it deserves!  Here’s what Jared had to say:

“This has been driving me crazy for quite some time. I post as often as I can on the news section her at Cinema5D. I have tried to go with the flow on the name of the still cameras that shoot video. I think we started with Video DSLR, than HD DSLR and now we have started using HDSLR. I think it’s about time we settled on this damn thing once and for all. I think HDSLR is just fine. It seems to have grown organically with the cameras that were once called “Hybrids”. Not a very nice name. Video DSLR’s are too video sounding. That went away pretty fast. Then we got all serious about it and called them HD DSLR’s but that does not really sound cool. HDSLR’s is pretty cool. It is fairly correct. High Definition Single Lens Reflex camera is what it is, after all. I hope that still works when it shoots 4K. Or will it be called HDVHS?”

My Experience with Canon Tech Support

Last week, after taking several stills with my 7D and having shot with the 5D Mark II previously, I felt like I was really missing that extra something you can only find with the full frame sensor.  To be honest, I felt a little jaded too, as the E2i is essentially the 7D only lighter and 1k less.  Some colleagues of mine told me that the resell price would be determined by the shutter count.  However, they had no clue how to determine this.  So I scoured the net trying to find out how to find the shutter count.  There is some user-created software that claims to be able to determine the shutter count, but I couldn’t get it to even recognize my camera.  So I contacted Canon.

What I found out was more than just an answer to my questions, but a company that returned my emails by a real person.  They answered my questions very quickly and very clearly, as they have done since I purchased the camera 2 months ago.  I mention this not to ride Canon’s jock, but I work in a customer service driven industry myself, and I know how difficult it can be to answer the same questions over and over.  Questions regarding a feature, or questions that are not a clear warranty issue sometimes fall between the cracks.

Even if I do sell my 7D, I have to tell you, I will always be a Canon customer.  Their fast, informative and courteous responses have made a life long customer out of me, and I hope this story instills confidence in anyone thinking of buying an HDSLR from Canon.  Please see the email exchange below, with the answer for finding out the shutter count on a 7D.  Let me stress that these emails were answered within eight hours of when I sent them.

My First Email: Can you tell me how I can check the shutter count on my 7D? I’m thinking of reselling it, and I’m told they need the shutter count.

Canon’s Response: We appreciate your continued correspondence regarding your EOS 7D. I am > sorry to hear that you aren’t happy with your 7D.  If you have taken less than 9,999 shots and have not reset the file numbering you can determine the number of pictures by looking at the file number of your last picture. If you have taken over 9,999 shots or reset the file numbering (this also occurs after 9,999 pictures), only the service center can determine the number of shutter actuations.  I hope this helps. Please write to us again if you have any questions.  Sincerely, Erik Technical Support Representative.
My Second Email: How many shots do I have until the stability of the shutter is questionable?

Canon’s Response: The shutter has a listed durability rating of 150,000 shutter cycles. A shutter cycle is defined as a single full opening, closing and re-cocking of the shutter mechanism. I hope this information is helpful to you. Please let us know if we can be of any further assistance with your EOS 7D.  Thank you for choosing Canon.  Sincerely,  Dirk  Technical Support Representative.

DAY 2: Vincent Laforet/CreativeLIVE HDSLR Workshop

In case you’ve missed out on one of the greatest opportunities for those endeavoring to make films with the HDSLR, Vincent Laforet and Creative LIVE are hosting the HDSLR Worshop live webcast.  Did I mention this webcast that goes on for 3 days is totally FREE???  There are so many people trying to capitalize on every aspect of the HDSLR revolution which in my opinion is in conflict with the spirit of it, Vincent La Foret once again, expels the money changers from the temple and puts filmmaking back in the hands of the people. Just tune in at http://creativelive.com/live/ today and Sunday to catch the last two days of the webinar — again FOR FREE!!!  Last night I tuned in just to see what’s on, because even during the breaks they’ve left one of the cameras streaming, and they were replaying Friday’s webinar.  Average number of viewers online has been averaging 2000+.  Also, you can particapate with questions on twitter by typing #creativelive Again, much respect for Vincent Laforet for giving back to the film community by making his knowledge and experience available to everyone who seeks it.  Just as a disclaimer, they are charging for a copy of this webinar that will be available for download next week for about $80.  However, it’s clear to see that the amount of work it took to produce this, they will barely recoup there cost.  Way to give back gentlemen!  Here’s Saturday and Sunday’s schedule. 

DAY TWO:  Saturday May 1st. PART I:  Introduction to Cinema Language and Concepts.   9 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. We’ll make sure you know what panning vs tilting is and what a locked off shot it.   CU / ECU / Medium Shot / Establishing shot will become part of your vocabulary – as well as a lateral move, a push or a pull.  We’ll define what a hyperfocal is to you and how to use  is to tackle focusing challenges.   We’ll ask the important question of:  how shallow is too shallow in terms of depth of field – especially when it comes to working with actors.    We’ll get into lens choice and discuss compression and distortion. PART II:  Cinema lighting and camera support.  11 a.m. – 1 p.m. We will not be going into complex lighting on this one – in fact lighting is one of the areas we will be spending the least amount of time on during this workshop given the complexity of the concepts involved and time / gear constraints. We’ll discuss how to use a variety camera support tools – at various price points.   Students will get hands on time with the gear and discuss HOW and WHY it is used (and to what EFFECT.)  We’ll start off by looking into a wide variety of handheld rigs and tools.  We’ll also look at a variety of sliders, dollies, JIB, Pan/Tilt Heads and time lapse tools.  We’ll then discuss wireless focus solutions, wireless video transmitters, and video conversion solutions. We’ll be discussing gear from:  Redrock Micro, Zacuto, Arri, Broncolor, GlideTrack, O’Connor, Cinevate, Kessler Cranes, MicroDolly Hollywood, and Porta Jib, Lite Panels, Black Magic, IDX, and Viewfactor amongst others. BREAK – LUNCH FROM 1 p.m. – 2 p.m. PART III:  The Makeup of a Film Crew  – 2 p.m. – 3:30 p.m. We’ll quickly discuss the business of film and also make sure you know what a director’s responsibilities are – as well as what a 1st AC does vs a gaffer or script supervisor.  We’ll also discuss what a treatment is and when film permits are needed and/or clearances. PART IV: First Shoot  – 4 p.m. – 6 p.m. The students will gather to shoot their first min-documentary.    They will shoot a sit down interview as well as some B-Roll and learn how to mix an interview with B-Roll footage effectively. PART V BONUS – Live Video Editing Session  – 7 p.m. – 8 p.m. DAY THREE:

Sunday May 2nd PART I:  NARRATIVE SHOOT – Pre Pro  – 9 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. Students will get back together and work on the pre-production of a short narrative piece that they will shoot in the next section.   We’ll discuss storyboarding, managing a shot list and equipment list – and the concept of shooting a scene / piece in a non-linear manner to save time (and expense.) PART II:  NARRATIVE SHOOT –  11 a.m. – 1 p.m. Students will break up into various roles and shoot a short narrative piece together – utilizing the tools and techniques discussed over the prior two days.  This will give us a chance to see everything come together – and also to pick up on some very common mistakes that first time filmmakers make. BREAK – Lunch 1 p.m. – 2 p.m. PART III:  WORKFLOW –  2 p.m.  – 4 p.m. We’ll discuss converting footage and a variety of editing tools for both Mac and PC.   We’ll cover Final Cut Studio, Compressor, Adobe CS5 (we’re still working on this detail given how new the software is) , MPEG Streamclip, and Plural Eyes.  We’ll also discuss backup strategies, from the Canon/Apple FCP Log and Transfer plugin, to Servers, LTO Tape and Drobo. PART IV:  FINISHING   4 p.m. – 6 p.m. We’ll also get a basic introduction to editing – and bring together the pieces we shot together earlier in the day.  Students will get an introduction to editing by qualified FCP and CS5 instructors (see above- we’re trying to get CS5 in…) The class will culminate with a discussion on how to grade the footage in Apple’s Color software.  And we’ll discuss how to deliver the final media to a variety of devices – from iPhones, AppleTV, streaming web movies, all the way to BluRay.
