Want to see just how good the Canon 7Dis for cinematography? This Friday, an SXSW award winning film, “Tiny Furniture” is coming to theaters. According to the Tiny Furniture Press Kit (PDF download), the entire film was shot using the Canon 7D—demonstrating the fact that the HDSLR is very capable of shooting cinema quality video. The movie is about 22-year old Auro who moves back home into her mother’s TriBeCa loft. Almost everything that could go wrong has gone wrong in her life and it begins to go awry in some typically hipster ways as she tries to find herself. Jody Lee Lipes is the DP—who has worked on The Whitest Kids U’Know, Man vs Wild, My First Kiss by 3OH!3, and lots more. You can find out where it is screening here.
I’ve used the 7D on a podcast, for a wedding, for concerts, for portraits, and we’ve done a full review on it. If you’re still not convinced, take a look at how it did against other Canon cameras, the D300s, and the Pentax K-5. Lastly, we tested a Zeiss compact prime meant for cinematography on it.
On a personal note, I wonder what lenses they used.
