Gonna be at all of the PSP events this season. Hoping to get some sick footage.

Debating on renting a 5dmkii. At least going to pick up a 70-200 f4L & a 24-105 f4L. Anyone have any experience with any of them? I had the 70-200 before and it's an amazing lens.

I've had a 70-200 F4L for 2 1/2 years now, I use it all the time. It pretty much lives on my 7D for anything outside.

don't you shoot a t2i? far better sports camera than a 5d2, you have no option of 720 60 on the 5d2. if you wanna rent the best camera for paintball (video/photo) get a 60d. if you're shooting only video, you don't need much more than a t3i.

Yeah, it's a T2i. I just wanna give the full frame a shot. The picture quality is just insane.

full frame definitely has it's place. but as most sports photographers would suggest, full frame has it's disadvantages too. the 5d2 may be great for shooting narratives, short films, or weddings, it lacks the frame rate abilities to shoot good looking sports videos.

the picture quality you're talking about is better noise compression, shallower dof, and better dynamic range in your colors/highlights and shadows. this is great if you're shooting a time lapse of a sunrise, but does little to the look of a paintball video.

Well I'm not strictly shooting on the field at these events. I have a few other ideas that I would like to execute, and I'll have my T2i with me either way.

Thanks for the heads up though.

I got two questions 1. What programs do you guys use like Sony Vegas Pro, Adobe after Effects? 2. I just got the t3i and can't open my short little test vids I made, on the comp. Anyone know how to open them? Thanks

They most likely need to be transcoded. Download MPEG Streamclip (http://www.squared5.com/). You can use that program to change the format of the file.

I personally use Adobe Premiere Pro to edit all of my stuff. After Effects isn't really much use when it comes to editing. After Effects is more for special effects/coloring/rotoscoping.

Final Cut is a good alternative to Premiere, but don't get Final Cut X.

Good watch. Wish I had the money to throw down on a RED.

I don't know that he used the Red for any of it. Thought it was all on his t2i but am I right in thinking you can't make 60 fps look that good that slow?

They rented a RED for Las Vegas. That's why there is such a difference in color, quality, etc. I don't know a whole lot about them but they can shoot up to 120fps which is why a lot of the slow motion was so smooth, along with some Twixtor I'm sure.

Ahhh makes sense. I helped with rotoscoping and compositing for a project shot with a red. You need an incredibly good computer or things explode.
