When I heard that Canon's upcoming 550D (Rebel T2i) was gonna have the same video quality as the 7D for half the price, I thought it was too good to be true.
Well, all I can say is, if the quality isn't the same, it's certainly damn close because I can't tell the difference. I was so happy with the test footage that I decided to take a gamble and shoot one of my scenes from my WW2 film "The Bridge" on the T2i just to see how it would match up with the rest of the movie (prior, the film was being shot with the 7D and 5D Mark II). The result? It fit perfectly like like a glove with the rest of the footage.
I also threw the camera on a Steadicam Merlin. I was little worried that it was a little too light for it but with the heavy lens, it seemed to work fine.
Thank you Canon for this amazing piece of hardware. You are truly making the art of filmmaking accessible to everyone!
Lens used: 24-105mm f4L
