- EOS DSLR Movie Mode tips
You already know that your Canon EOS DSLR takes fantastic still images, but it's also a perfect camera for shooting brilliant, full, high-definition video. The basic principles between stills and video are very similar with everything from exposure to white balance and composition all very important. Get into EOS movie mode and begin shooting films with these seven tips to get your started.
Having a few ideas in mind before you go out there and begin to shoot is important to help you tell your story.
When shooting in EOS movie mode, stability is really important. The camera strap gives a third point of contact to keep your video images as stable as possible.
Something very important in video is getting your focus right and the Canon EOS has got a fantastic auto focused tracking system for fast moving subjects, so every frame is in focus.
We know it can be tempting but this can actually be distracting for your viewer, and ultimately your film won't look quite as polished.
This helps to keep your viewer's interest and also helps you later on when editing.
Shoot more than just your subject for a better context and depth to your story.
This mode allows you to limit your clips from two, to four, to eight seconds, and then compiles the video for you with all of your shots you've taken on that day.
