Did you ever dream about being able to shoot a movie? I'm talking about the look & feel of motion pictures, big-complicated-expensive gear that requires a bunch of coordinated people just to turn it on?
Well, now you can & it's pretty easy too :) even practicing to get it right is fun!

Check out the two clips I shot using the Canon 5D II, I love the way they came out - look at the shallow depth of field, beautiful sparkling blown out highlight! The colors are rich & creamy...I think I'll keep it, LOL!

You get the hang of it after a few short trials, I thought it was going to be very complicated & cumbersome (having worked w/film before) so I was pleasantly surprised at the ease the camera let me control the look of the shot & the actual recording.

Both clips were shot using the canon 5D II on a video tripod w/fluid head & Westcott Spider Light kit.

I want to hear about your own experience so do let me know ;)

Before you click, make sure you have your music on, it adds a lot to the finished product. (check out Magnatune for a great selection & variety of downloadable & affordable music )


  1. Vered, I am so embarrassed! I've never used the video function on the 5D Mark II, but after seeing your vids, maybe I should!


  2. I'm sure you will do a great job, you have a wonderful eye :)
