Canon 7D as a Video Camera

You knew the Canon 7D could capture video, right?  The better question is whether you know how to take advantage of this capability.

In case you missed it, Chad Mumm of Engadget posted a nice little piece on his impressions of the Canon 7D as a filmmaking tool.  Chad’s the video producer over at Engadget and he clearly knows a little more than the average bear when it comes to shooting video.  He’s also got some great advice about working with mics and sound.

His points will largely apply to the Canon 5D Mark II as well.

So, if video DSLRs are your thing, you might want to check out Mumm’s word on the 7D.
