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
