      Had our filming today. It went...okay. Aside from working with a bunch of people that don't understand anything about filming, my camera was being a pain in the ass. It kept stopping the recording and saying "The camera has automatically ended recording."

      I did a google search and some people said it's caused by the camera overheating (which is hard to believe because we were shooting outside on a cold winter day). Other people said it was due to the file sizes being too big, and the SD card not being able to write the data fast enough. I was using a 32g 20mb/s card. So that was kind of frustrating, had to redo a lot of shots.

      Make up also took way longer than I thought it would.

      Yeah the foibles of shooting with video.

      I know that my canon 7d can only shoot 12min clips at time, are you sure that wasn't the issue?

      How long did it record for before turning off? Also make sure you have the most up to date firm-ware for your camera. And make sure you format your card after dumping it, and before the start of every video shoot.

      It seemed to be happening at random. Sometimes it would be after 3-5seconds, sometimes it would be after a minute or two, sometimes it didn't do it at all.


      Might sound dumb, but how do I go about formatting the card? Last camera I had was a GL2 which was miniDV

      Menu > Card Option > Format

      And I would def look into updating your frimware. I bet that's the culprit.

      thanks. I checked on Canon's website and they didn't have any info regarding the issue, but I'm going to update the firmware anyway. I'm also going to pick up a faster SD card. Everyone seems to recommend a class 10, you have any recs on brand?



      EDIT: After some research it looks like people are recommending the SanDisk Extreme Pro which is a 45mb/s card. People also say to use the 16g as opposed to the 32g as the larger cards tend to over heat.

      Yep, I was going to suggest Sandisk. They have some bad blood with Canon as far as finger pointing when things go wrong, but they are industry standard for a reason. And as suggested I for SD I would go for 16g, now if we're talking about CF, then I would jump on a 32gb card if you could afford it.

      Does the T2i shoot on SD instead of CF? I know some Nikons do as well.

      And it's always good to keep your firmware up to date on these cameras, especially if shooting video is a big part of what you plan on doing with it.

    9. 01-30-2012 12:01 PM #34
      As far as I can tell, my T3i does NOT support a CF card. $$$ isn't a huge issue though, considering I can get more than 50% off of retail from my friend who works for best buy.

      Hope your next shoot goes smoother.

      Shot this really quickly on Sunday before we started shooting our short. Lighting kind of sucks, but I didn't really want to take the time to touch it up in post, and my boss was up my ass to get this done to promote the event.

      You cropped off the gent in the green sweater nearly at his shoulder joint. I would have given him at least half-a-hand's worth of pace between his arm and the frame/crop.

      The rule is generally never to frame/crop someone at a joint or dividing point. (elbows, knees, waist, neck, ankle, wrist, etc) It give an odd subconscious illusion of amputation, and you're cutting it pretty close with that guy.

      Also there isn't any footage to break up him and the guy with the little boy. You should have positioned the guy and the boy on the far right of the frame. Especially since the boy is on his right knee. So the leading lines are pulling left hard. The way it is right now, the composition is very heavy to one side.

      As always, thanks for the tips

      Honestly that whole thing was rushed, and I didn't pay much attention to it aside from the audio levels. The project was kind of thrown at me Sunday morning

      I feel you on the last minute tight deadlines. It's definitely something that has to be developed as a sixth sense. I'm just now semi-conscious of it all the time. And I've been doing documentary stuff for 3 months. Albeit non-stop, producing 37 videos in that three months with more still sitting on my plate.

      That is a lot of filming in three months, damn.

      Let me know if you have any post-production or color correcting questions. Even a little bit of color tweaking can go along way.

      Here's a "talking head" video I did for a recent project that had to be color corrected...


    18. 01-31-2012 10:23 PM #43
      Damn that's a huge difference!

      Most of the footage I got from Sunday actually looks really good, but almost "too good." I want to try to color grade it so it kind of has a gloomy feel. I played around with curves today in Premiere, but I think I want to learn AE.

      Here is a quick out take from the shoot...prop failure!

      I really like the angle, coloration, and saturation of that Gopro shot.

      Not at all, if the horizon was straight it'd be an excellent shot. Very indicative of zombie movies. The coloration is def what you should shoot for. Lots of saturation and oranges.

      made some changes to this video. Not ideal, but my boss wanted a bunch of stuff thrown in, and I tried to fix the framing you mentioned

      You need to flip that video image of the guy and the kid if you move it to that edge. You've got clipping issues. It should be something like Transform>Flip Horizontal.

      hmm for some reason I didn't even think of that. I figured reframing the shot was better than the couple seconds of clipping when the kid lifted his arm.

      Whatever works. Flipping would be the fastest. And no one would really know.
