I did a quick search but have found nothing much regarding this.
Shooting a feature film with two 7Ds, Zeiss Primes and Redrock EyeSpy.

I have used this camera before and am confident the results would be great.
But is there anything I need to look out for? Any pitfalls, obvious oversights?
Also any particular settings to bring it closer to film looks.

Sorry guys, I don't spend much time on net so apologies if this has already been asked(i did check though).

Hi,

First make sure your colour profiles are set to how you want them as this is a common mistake a lot of people forget about as it isn't blindly obvious. My next suggestion would be to watch our for rolling shutter and moire which will occur if you do any quick pans with the camera along with small details. Apart from that there are other bits and pieces but those would be the first things to look out for in my opinion.

test, test, test.
having recently shot a short with a 60D, came across some of the issues jay mentioned.
moire in particular is a pain in the behind. test all your wardrobe out before hand and view on a big monitor to double check.
focus can be an issue with these cameras, loupe or monitor might come in handy.
relating to profiles: Highlight Tone Priority - make sure it's either off or on both cameras so they match up as well.
hope it helps :)
