I thought I’d just share a couple of techie things real quick.
So far we’ve soot entirely with Canon DSLR’s. There’s one scene that I was worried about because of the rolling shutter. I had a back-up XDCAM on set, but we didn’t end up needing it.
The main lens we’ve used has been a Canon 17-55 2.8 with IS, and it’s been a real champ. I’ve also used a Canon 10-22 3.5-4.5, Canon 50 1.4, and Canon 55-200 3.5-5.6. As far as cameras go, by the way, we’ve been using both the 7D and T2i.
There happens to be a number of night scenes, and I’ve limited the ISO 800. Go higher than that, and it just starts to get a little grainy for my taste.
I know this isn’t much, but thought I’d check in and share some of my initial thoughts on production.
