A video clip filmed with the Canon EOS 550D / Rebel T2i using its 1080 / 30fps HD video mode, and illustrating a shallow depth-of-field effect with selective focusing.

The clip was filmed with the 550D / Rebel T2i in Manual exposure mode, mounted on a tripod, using the EF-S 18-135mm kit lens, zoomed-in, with IS disabled. The aperture was set to f5.6, the shutter to 1/30 and the ISO to 1600. The focus was then manually adjusted.

Some jerkiness in the clip may be due to the re-encoding and presentation here, so please do download the original for a proper evaluation.

Check out our other clips filmed outdoors moments apart using the five HD video modes to compare resolutions and frame rates.

These videos are part of my full review of the EOS 550D / Rebel T2i at Camera Labs.
