LISTENER QUESTIONS

Question 1 – Failwhale77 is wondering whether to get a Canon 7D, a 5K Mark II, or a Scarlet if he’s interested in getting into video?

Alex: The Scarlet from Red isn’t available now. If he’s not in a rush then wait for PMA to see if there are any announcements made there.. If he needs something right away, the 7D is better at video and feels more like a video camera. The 5D is a better still camera. You can see Alex’s video shot with a 7D here.

Question 2 – Have you had problems with your gear going from warm inside to cold outside?

Steve: One tip is to bring a large Ziploc bag with you and when you go indoors, put your camera in the bag and seal it so that the condensation forms on the outside of the bag rather than on your camera body.

Question 3 – Looking for an affordable option for shooting 360 degree panos.

Alex: I use the Nodal Ninja R1
