At NAB 2011, I recorded this presentation by Alex Buono, Director of Photography for the Saturday Night Live Film Unit. Alex gives a great DSLR Primer talk, which I also heard at the HDSLR FILMMAKING EXPO 2010 in Los Angeles. This time I was lucky enough to record it, and asked Alex if he would mind if I put it on Vimeo. He gave his permission, but said I should cut out some of the content that the network might have a problem with, so this is an edited version of his presentation. He shoots often with Canon's 5D MKll and 7D DSLR cameras. I shot this handheld with a 5D MKll with a EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM. This is the first Canon lens with the Hybrid Image Stabilization Technology, and is great for shooting video as well as still macro photography.
