Canon 7D Slow Motion
We took the 7D out and shot some fun footage at the West Hollywood Halloween Carnaval. The parts with audio were shot in 24p with the 7D and the slow motion parts were shot in 60p. We used cinema tools to conform the 60p videos to 24p, we could have slowed the 60p video down to 30p but wanted to shoot in 24p for coolness.

The 7D slowmo shots came out really good. Since we were just out to have fun, all of the 7D footage was done handheld. It actually looks great handheld because once you slow the 60p videos down to 24p you don’t see how shaky the clips it.
So, if you have a Canon 7d, I would recommend you go out and shoot some stuff in 60p to make some good 7d slow motion movies.
I think this is a great 7D slow motion test video or Canon 7D slowmo example.
Lot’s of you have 5D mark II’s and would like to shoot slow motion video with it… there isn’t a great way to do that right now. We hoped that they would have given us 60p for the new 5D mark II firmware and we would be able to use it for slow motion video but that did not happen. We did get standard frame rates though!
If you are looking to shoot slow motion with a 5D mark II then I would recommend either buying a 7D or T2i to do it or just renting a 7D. I know that is not the perfect solution… but it is the only way to get good looking slowm with a DSLR.
We have tested a few software solutions for making 5D2 footage slow… but none of them are worth recommending. You are better off buying a T2i and using that… and on that note:
