I've got a 5D and a 7D that I'd like to start shooting video with for work. Yesterday I gave it a try for the first time. My setup was the 5D on a tripod for the main shot and I used the 7D for small details that I could edit into the finished video.
Here's my delima, the 5D looked great through the Live View window, when I hit record, the image would dim, almost like it was adjusting to compensate for the lighting in the room. I lit the room specifically for the video, lighting was great, the 7D didn't seem to have this issue so I'm assuming that I've got something set incorrectly on the 5D causing this. Any guesses?
Next question, I use a Rode stereo mic and while it did a great job picking up noise, it picked up every noise in detail. I need to switch over to a lavalier type mic. Anyone have a good recommendation there?
