2nd Camera Operator on Documentary

Leave a comment

On Saturday night I was hired to be the 2nd camera on a Documentary about the Imperial Court at an event. I originally was going to use a Sony S270U HD camera, but the person I was borrowing it from had transportation issues, so I had to use Plan B. Which was using my Canon Rebel T3i. I didn’t think it would be capable of being used to shoot a documentary on, but low-and-behold it worked great. Shot the footage in 1920×1080 24P, and a 32 GB memory card gets you at least 29 minutes.
I went through 3 fully charged batteries.
Also I am noticing that when using a DSLR to shoot video on has on it has adjustable ISO. So yes it has more settings, but I think the adjustable ISO on DSLR cams is the best feature about them. Conventional HD video cams have set ISO’s, that cannot be adjusted. But the DSLR’s do and I think that is the most brilliant aspect about them.


Hiked in San Pedro Valley Park

Went on a hike in San Pedro Valley Park in Pacifica, California on Saturday. I took the Old Farm Trout Farm trail to the Brooks Creek Trail, and didn’t see any wildlife. I did see an awesome view of Pacifica and the Pacific Ocean.

And the Farallon Islands. When I returned to the parking lot I decided to hike on the Weiler Ranch Trail, and after a 1/4 mile I suddenly encountered Black tailed Deer. They are a sub-species of the Mule Deer, which in the past, has been a controversial declaration. But if you look at my Flickr set you can see the similarities to Mule Deer. I had some very nice photographic moments with those deer, and was a mere 10 feet from the Buck, and at no time did I feel threatened or scared.
