How To Shoot Video With a DSLR For Beginners PT 1

To make a video with a DSLR camera you need some additional skills to those for shooting stills. There are some camera settings unique to video and some of them you wouldn’t normally use.

In how to shoot video with a DSLR for beginners we’ll show you how to think about the film you’re making. This is called production and it involves about planning the shots in advance. I’m not suggesting a major shooting schedule but give a little thought to what you’re doing. Think about how your video clips will fit together when you edit them.

I hope you find this useful…

  1. Hi Mike (and Melissa, and the rest of the Crew^^) !
    I have a D610 and a D7200, both can do descent video, and the D7200 is even better because of better microphones.. but I would like to own a handycam, and I'm thinking aboute the SONY fdr-axp33, just because its got 4K and got a real flash mount. What are the big differences except more control on the DSLR's and the obvious movie features of a real camcorder? Is the handycam worth the ~970£? Im not poor but if the 4K is inferior to changeable lenses then its unnecessary to buy it.

    I should add that my purpose of making movies is not to try to make amateur action movies etc, so post editing, external mics, extreme depth of field etc is not as important to make the video look sharp on a good LCD screen or a tellyvision :)

  2. Great video, I learn much. Yes, please post more on DSLR videos. Thank you.

  3. Love your videos. Thank you for posting! So easy for the cash poor beginner!

  4. Thanks for the great video. I'm truly new to shooting videos so I wanted to ask you, that if you stop at each shot then start it again by pressing the live view button, and the video will simply continues? What happens when you want to do a different video, how do you separate them?

  5. Mike what did you film this video on Vid camera or DSLR? If Vid camera which one did you use?

  6. Very nice. I learned a lot. I'd love to see more.

  7. Great Video Mike.  Thanks for all the info.  Look forward to seeing more.

  8. The audio kind of degraded the video, lol, but this is awesome nonetheless.  With perfect audio, It would've been golden.

  9. Nice and easy

  10. Hey Mike, is it recommended to shoot an entire wedding with a Canon EOS 650D ? Could the camera get damaged due to overheating ?
