Beta Canon 7D Footage
Based on the clips we have seen so far I would say the Canon 7D by far offers the best looking moving images in a camera under $2k.
It appears the jello effect is still there in the 7D but an improvement on the Canon 5D Mark II. I’m curious how many of you think this level of jello is a problem.
- Philip Bloom got his hands on a 7D and has started uploading videos on twitter. You can read his thoughts on the 7D here: www.philipbloom.co.uk This video was shot on an FF35 35mm lens at 24p, f1.4, and 1/50th shutter speed: www.twitvid.com/5F538

Rolling Shutter or Jello Effect
The jello effect is probably the toughest obstacle that we have to work around when using VDSLRs. The 7D is an improvement on the Canon 5D Mark II but jello is still something to watch for.
This video is not something you would want to do on a real shoot but gives a sense of what movement we will need to avoid.
This is Canon’s promotional 7D video. A couple tilt shift lenses were used: TS-E90, TS-E45 and TS-E24. www.web.canon.jp/eos7d/
