In the above video, Ryan Hargrave put his Canon 7D to work in the above video by capturing Small JPEG files at the full burst speed, which he then stitched together in post to create this old 8mm camera effect.

Hargrave gives a good description of how he handled the media in post on his Vimeo page.

But this way you could film approx. 3 hours of video. Then your shutter breaks since it has reached its 150k cycles…

…that’s obviously not the intent.

But even then, replacing the shutter is under $400.
