like everyone who starts out need a little help.
I`ve been a still photographer for many years and having retired have just discovered that my 5d2/5d3 shoot really good videos. I have photop cs6 and premier pro. I have more or less found my way around cs6 video editing but wouldn`t mind some pointers to somewhere where i can watch some tutorials on premier done by people that haven`t got a train to catch and realise that I need to be shown where to click rather than just told.
Secondly! I want to use my 5d2 in conjunction with my 5d3 (using the 5d3 for my 17-40 WA as the sensor is clean and should show any dust marks in the videos and my 5d2 with something like my 135 on board) I want to shoot both units at the same or close by time so that I can interact the clips moving from WA shots to telephoto shots of the subject as I edit the video, I`ve tried it out more or less in CS6 and using fade between the strips can look really good. I know you might say to just use one camera and fit a zoom and I suppose there is some sense in that and I`ll be led on anything you can advise. Although I would like the shallow DOF that the 135 offers for the close in shots.
Q. the resolution of the 5d3 is slightly larger than the 5d2, will that cause problems of frame size etc as I mix the cuts? ( I suppose perfect colour balance between the two cameras would also be a big problem?)
I suppose you see loads of newbies and get used to passing over the posts but I really do need some help please so if you can spare the time!
Looking at premier pro it would be the ideal program because I don`t think there is much that can`t be achieved in it but will I ever get to grips with it!!!
Anyway, any start out advice would be much appreciated
