Hey,

I'm going to be ACing on a 7d this weekend, something I haven't done very often. I was wondering if anybody had any tips, tricks, advice, etc. I'm reading the manual tonight, but if there's any additional insight from people working with DSLRs in the field, I would appreciate it!

one thing is the most important is focus!

if you can get your hand on good lenses with big turn on the focus

the still lenses are AC nightmare

also good follow focus with no backlash will help you alot

and ask the dp to work with f stop that give you DOF to work with

good hd monitor is essential too

Heat can also rear it's head on occasion, I always recommend shielding the camera from direct sunlight if you're outside with a flag over it helps the op too ;)

I just had a shoot in the desert with one of these cameras, it was a nightmare in 100+ degree heat.
