Hi All,

I've been shooting a lot on the 5D and 7D this year, mainly for web corporate interview stuff but am venturing out onto my first music video shoot with a 7D next week. It's a decent kit with a Zeiss MkII, Matte Box, Filters Etc

Usually for a shoot like this I'd go with the Red and have been trying to get one with the new Mysterium MX sensor but to no avail unfortunately. So hence the 7D option.

So it's obviously for a TV finish at at least 720p as we'll be doing a fair bit of 50 frames stuff.

Should I be worried about this camera for a TV finish? House, Califonication etc have been using it so maybe my worries are a little unnecessary...?

But I'd love to get some feedback on people's thoughts regarding any traps that I might find myself in regarding ISO settings (noise) rolling shutter and what not...

We will be doing some day exterior into late dusk, I'm planing on using a high ISO setting here like 640 or 1250 - is the base noise level of the 7D the same as the 5D ie multiples of 160iso?

Will also be doing, interior night stuff and some interior coffin stuff.

Finally any additional advice would be appreciated :-)

Thanks in advance!
