    "Serious 7D Kit"

    Just thought I'd share this with you guys, Spotted at the Quiksilver Pro Surfing Comp this week , I have no idea what gadgets he has hanging off the the Camera , But looks very impressive to me , I'm intrigued by the gear mechanism that drives the lens , Any body got a clue to what it does , I do know he's taking Video I'm guessing , Anyway interesting stuff I reckon

    I think that's called a "follow focus". Look here.

    Interesting bit of kit. Whilst not into it myself, from what I see around the place, the 7D & 5D MKII are quite popular for doco & short film production.

    Yep, focus motor for easier and smoother focusing in video, a loupe for better viewing of the rear LCD - obviously more important for video than stills, and a baby shotgun mic on top. Plus a nifty little rail to sit it all on.

    Not sure why he's filming his fingertips though.

    I'd love to have a set-up like that for doing videos!
    Mind you, that set-up probably cost more than the camera and lens combined!

    I don't know about you guys, but I find the videos from my 60D are far superior to my expensive Sony HD video camera.

    All those goodies are available from B & H in New York.
    But wait until you see the prices........................

    Looks like he went for Zacuto gear as well, not exactly the bargain basement brand.

    Definately becoming more common to see this sort of stuff on the sidelines too these days. I just picked up a job with a newspaper today for a soccer match and was asked whether I do video as well

    I'd say he probably even needs a CPL (or ND) if he's aiming for the reccomended shutter speed of 1/50th for 25fps (or 1/60th for 30fps) to stop overexposure.

    I fail to understand that, I didn't think movie fps was relevant re exposure ?

    It is relevant. Google search "180 shutter rule"
    This looks alright:
    http://www.digi1080p.com/tutorials/1...t-love-it.html

    But more specifically, If he wanted a slower shutter speed to give smooth movement like in film, he would likely have needed a CPL or ND.
    They apparently do use quicker shutter speeds for sports footage, but if it is too fast, it looks very jittery.

    Yeah i've only really used it once.
    I made this little clip:


    I had it in auto to let the camera decide, which was fine for sunrise, but at the end of the vid, theres more light, and i shoot a couple waves and can see how it is a little unusual.
    I don't know what shutter speed it was shooting at, but I imagine pretty fast.

    If you're interested in finding more on Video, there's a lot of info on the cinema5D forum.
