So I've got a few "out for delivery" notices this morning that I'm looking forward to. I've been frustrated by seeing the potential for video with my 5D2 and 7D but just not being able to get there. So I've got a Z-Finder, Rode Video mic and Manfrotto 561-BHDV heading to my place today. I can't wait to get home and try them out tonight. No aspirations of making any kind of videos, just looking to capture memorable moments with my kids in the best format I can get. Any other useful tips/tools that may help? Trying to walk the fine line between acceptable depth of field and my love of shallow depth of field. I think the combo of the BHDV to stabilize my shots and the Z-Finder to pull focus more accurately will go a long way.
