Getting Started Shooting Video with Your Canon 60D DSLR Camera

A tutorial to help you get started with your DSLR camera. It will help you with tips on white balance, iris, focus, zoom, and shallow depth of field. Here’s a link to a video that gives good examples of different shutter speeds and why you MIGHT want to play around with shutter speed yourself: http://vimeo.com/46561425 Look at the very end of the video to see the major differences of the two (highest and lowest) extremes.

To see a video shot with this camera, go to “Oxford Wedding 2012:” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P1XI21y_zmM

    Thanks! This really helps, simple and straight to the point.

  7. Whenever I push the record button it only records for about 10 seconds and shuts off by itself. anyone know why this is happening?

  8. My 60d won't let me adjust shutter speed when trying to record. It doesn't even record it just takes a still shot. Any tips on what could be wrong?

  9. It has been a real help to me thank you.

  13. Maike Barbara Corbett

    Great tutorial to get started. Thank you. 

  14. Can I use my bult-in flash for filmmaking?

  15. when I push the button to video I have it set on 30 min and I even tried it on 1 min and every time after about 15 seconds it stops the recording and says "Movie recording has been stopped automatically" I don't do what im doing wrong….

  16. videos should be shot at 1920 x 1080 at 24fps not 30fps 24fps is industry standard for movie making and the shutter speed should be 48 but as dslr's don't have 48 set to 1/50 instead 

  17. The store told me that you can continuously auto focus during a video, like a sony a57 has, built in the body. He said that, if your lens has auto focus, your body doesn't need to have it, and you can still continuously auto focus during video, but I don't seem to be able to do that.

    Uh, yeah. Think about it. When have you ever seen a segment of video on a movie or TV show that was longer than 5 minutes? You don't. I wouldn't want to look at a single scene for longer than 5 minutes. Not like you can't edit them together anyway for seamless transitions. If it's a big deal, sell your 60D and buy a Sony Handycam.

    Sent this video to my wife to explain how to setup for video recording. Much easier than trying to write it all out and much easier for her to understand. Thanks!

  20. So it can't film for more than 12 minutes? Whaaaat
