here it is, a long journey that began with a crazy proposal to Canon well over 8 months ago, culminating in a almost a month living on a bus, touring the country, and meeting some amazing people along the way. our last tutorial is an introduction to stabilizers for EOS cameras. it covers our hands down favorite too, the monopod (answering the most commonly asked question and some tips and tricks), our take on sliders (the atlas LTS 30 by cinevate featured here), as well as a breakdown on stabilizers (featuring the steadicam merlin). i hope you enjoyed the series of tutorials, stay tuned for what's in store in 2011.
for those of you in the paris area, come and see us on the 14th for an all day seminar on storytelling in both photo and cinema. more info on our education blog

the fifth of our tutorials with the last to debut next week. this one is all about lens choice, camera placement, and overall coverage of a wedding ceremony with EOS cameras.

brought to you by canon live learning. despite doing our best to minimize the wind (running the transmitter really low and running a big windscreen on the lav) it was so strong that it still interferes in certain parts. being that this piece is much more raw we wanted to leave it as-is (we also thought re-shooting the VO in a pristine location just wouldn't jive.)
a couple things we couldn't add in due to time. you can also record a frame in video, then playback and use the indicator that shows you what is blown out by flashing, or ideally the histogram to check your exposure. this works on the 7D, MKIV, and MKII and is great when you don't have a z-finder and you need to ensure your exposure is spot on.
thanks also to zacuto for providing the z-finders and tiffen for providing the ND filters.

behind the Scenes of the workshop in portland. this is from day one of steadicam training. shot entirely with the steadicam merlin. now often we use the bigger rigs because of the added benefits they prodive, but when we get a chance to play with these smaller ones, such as here, it always surprises me just how clean the footage can look.
for those that haven't heard, san fran won the last stop for the cinema caravan and registration launched monday.
