PopPhoto Flash: “Dead Season”: The First Movie Shot Entirely on a Canon 7D?


It’s no secret that the onslaught of HD-shooting DSLRs has been a boon for indie film-makers. The trailer (embedded after the link since it involves some violence and gore) is early footage for an indie zombie flick called Dead Season. The description claims that all of the footage was shot on the $1,800 7D with a grip of Canon glass to go with it. The footage looks impressive to me, personally. The 24p shooting mode really does give it that cinematic feel and the depth of field effects give it a unique quality. Sadly, the “jiggle” effect that typically happens with DSLR sensors shooting HD video is evident from time to time, especially during quick pans. Regardless, I’ll happily add this to my Netflix queue should it make it to that point. Have thoughts about camera convergence? Leave them in the comments.
