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 ;)
