Hey everyone! After tons of requests on how to shoot video with your DSLR, I've finally got around to doing one. This will be the first on many videos covering the proper way of shooting with your DSLR. As many of you already know my style of teaching, I like to get to the "why" before the "when". That way "when" you are ready to go out and shoot, you know "why" certain things must take place before filming. I will be doing more in the coming weeks, so don't worry! Please SHARE, comment rate and of course...SUBSCRIBE! Please let me know if you have any questions.

ND Fader Filters (Text contributed from http://blog.vincentlaforet.com/2010/1... ):
A Neutral Density Filter cuts down on the amount of light that reaches sensor (of film.) NDs come in different standard strengths as well-- 1 stop, 2 stop, all the way up to 10 stops (and beyond.)

For the filmmaker, Neutral Density Filters are an essential tool. Still photographers have a bit more latitude to maneuver their exposure by changing the shutter speed. But filmmakers/videoagraphers generally leave their shutter speed fixed at 1/50th of a second. Therefore the HDDSLR shooter needs an ND filter for pretty much any exterior scene (unless they're shooting at night of course,) otherwise they will find themselves shooting between f/11 through f/22 in bright sunlight at ISO 100 for example. Therefore, it is not uncommon for me to carry around 10 or more ND filters at a time for any production -- big or small. As I said: ND filters are essential, and should probably be one of your very first purchases as you move from stills into HDDSLR video.

This is where the Fader Filters can come in handy -- and really shine. Fader filters basically allow you to have all of the filters in one. Instead of having to purchasee separate ND filters (for example a ND 0.3 = -1 Stop of light, and ND 0.6 = -2 stops, an ND 0.9 = -3 stops, and ND 1.2 = -4 stops of light etc) you have the option of purchasing ONE filter that covers all of those ranges, and in fact in between. The Fader filers work much like traditional circular polarizers: in the flick of a wrist, you can cut out as much as 8 stops of light. This will come in really handy in documentary or on-location situations when you might not have the opportunity, or the time to unscrew the filter you already have on your lens, go searching through your camera bag for the right ND filter, and screw that into place. By then, the moment may be lost.
