hi guys, I have a project coming up and my main concern about it is the control over exposure.
it's going to be la long P.O.V. and during this shot the main character will be walking from his car,
then into a garden and then into his house.

Basically the camera will see a lot of different light spaces in which the T stop suddenly changes
from ,let's say, T4 to T16/22. Is there any way I can have remote control over the aperture whilst shooting?
We are using a EOS 5D with standard EF lenses.

Canon 5D's come with a software disk that includes a USB link remote control program. I've used it on a Windows XP netbook and got good results.

Here's a link to a video showing Canon's program in use with a 7D.
