Canon 5D Mark 2 Videos From Photo Trips

by Nick Hamilton | Oct 19, 2009 | | 1 Comment

It wont be long before every photo assignment will also require a web video from the trip.  Last season I met a US Today Newspaper photographer shooting Shaun White, he was shooting with Video Camera in hand (and Canon with 600mm lense over the shoulder).  He said he shoots majority video on assignments and pops a couple frames here and there, the web videos pay the bills. The day before he was riding in the back of a SUV shooting Obama and the week before was in Fallujah.
