Video FAQ : Review : Canon 5D Mark II for Wedding Video

For over a year now, we have been using the Canon 5D Mark II for our wedding videos, and we just have to say we love it. And the question is what is not to like about this camera, and about the image. I will skip the argument about the advantages and disadvantages of the Canon 5d Mark II vs the Canon 7d because we have never used a Canon 7D.

As photographers, we were looking for a top of line camera, and the Canon 5D Mark II delivers an image quality that is absolutely amazing, and it’s still lighter compared to the Canon 1D Mark IV. So we knew this was our camera, but we never imagined this camera would deliver an image superior than our other more expensive HD video cameras, and that it would change our business as a whole.


Video FAQ : What is the difference between Cinema HD : Regular HD : DSLR Videos

Ever since we made the switch to 100% DLSR Cinema HD video last year, I’ve had a few brides and grooms asked me how is that different than regular HD. The short answer is there is a world of difference. But since my answers are a little more elaborated than that, and examples are crucial to demonstrate the difference, I decided it was time for a Video FAQ answering some of the questions couples have asked.

What is DSLR HD video?

DSLR HD video is video recorded on a DSLR camera, which means a professional still -photographer’s- camera that has the ability to record video. Because still cameras have larger chips than most regular Pro HD cameras, the image has better resolution, which means less pixelation when viewed on a large flat TV screen.

What is Cinema HD video?

Cinema HD is an image quality closer to a Hollywood movie  or cinema. Because DSLR cameras give you the flexibility of switching lenses, you can literally use the best Canon lenses available in the market. This allows for better control of the depth of field, or as my friends will describe it, a sharp image with a fuzzy background. This is the defining difference between the two types of HD.READ MORE

How to trust wedding reviews and know who is legit?

The other day, a group of wedding professionals and myself were discussing some concerns brides are expressing: How to trust wedding reviews? Which ones are legitimate? And the bottom line: Who to trust among so many wedding professionals out there? This got me thinking…. and thinking… and thinking so more.

Reviews are a catch 22.
Reviews are a catch 22 for any wedding professional. They make us look good and bad, but we need them.

No reviews: not good – signals lack of experience – “they’re probably just starting”
Bad review: no trust – signals bad reputation – “run Forrest, run.”
Somewhat good reviews: some trust, some doubt – not enough trust- “Uhm, not sure. Next!”
Too many good reviews: too good to be true – fishy – “Really how can everyone just love them. They must be posting those reviews to look good.”

So what’s next for wedding professionals and brides. As a professional, how can I prove that my reviews are legit? And for brides, how can you trust they are legit?

wedding reviews

Too many options…
First of all, I must admit that it must be daunting for any bride to choose a wedding vendor out of hundreds that are out there. On the other hand, because there are so many options, it means there is a vendor with a style, personality, experience and price range that is right for every bride.

But how can you find them?
How do you discern the real professional from scams. The experienced from the inexperienced. “The one who is charging way too much, if I can get the same thing cheaper.”

Engage with them!
This is what I do whenever I’m looking for a service. Point out the ones whose work you like, and engage with them. Follow them on Fb, or twitter, and follow their blog via their RSS. That way you know what are they up to; how are they like; if their personalities are a good match with yours and that of your fiance; how many weddings they do a year, which will tell you how much experience they have.

This will give you The bigger picture of who they are. And let them know you are out there. Once you know them, and have seen their work and their weddings, the reviews will make more sense. You may start pointing out reviews to real people, “Oh, this is the girl from the garden wedding; oh yeah, I know who she is.”

PS. Ok, the pictures with tags are cheesy, but you get the point.
