Chad Perkins: There are many great choices out there for DSLR cameras. Nikon makes great cameras like the D800. Panasonic makes the fantastic GH2. Brian Liepe: But by far, the most popular DSLR used in video are the cameras made by Canon. Specifically the Canon 5D Mark II which this is being shot on and the Canon 70, for that reason those are the cameras we will be using. Chad Perkins: The tutorials for this, as Brian mentioned, are being shot with a Canon 5D Mark II, but we will also be seeing footage throughout this course with the Canon 7D and this Canon T2i.
Regardless of which camera you are using, the concepts in this training series are almost always going to be applicable to all DSLRs that shoot video.
