50mm HD Video Goodness

You don’t need to be intimidated by HD Video using your DSLR Camera.

This short video above was taken using a humble, inexpensive 50mm f/1.8 Lens on a Canon 60D to get great Video. No fancy, Expensive Follow Focus Rig was used – this was all Hand Held. This was filmed with available light only. With the right Settings and a few tips you can get great Video using your DSLR.

These Prime Lenses are great for indoor conditions with low light. Definitely worth adding to your kit if you don’t have one. You can go for more expensive f/1.4 lenses for a little more light and quality – these are my recommendations:

In my EASYDSLR course I have a Module on HD Video using DSLR cameras (over an Hour of Training) where I go through the basics, what settings to use and some filming tips.

So get out there and get some great Video – you Don’t need a Hollywood budget!
