Maximum time shooting for 60D
on Aug 28, 2011 at 1:10:46 am

I am co-producing a two hour film which we intend to shoot in one take (like the Russian Ark). Is there a way to rig a 60D to capture all that footage at once (as with a external hard drive?). We need something that's lightweight as the camera will be hand-held through out the entire shoot and we will be shooting in a crowded room moving in between people for the entire shoot.
Does the 60D battery last that long?

If not, does anyone have a recommendation for a video camera that will allow us to do that?

Canon cameras do not output a clean HDMI signal so it's not possible to record externally from any of the Canon HDSLRs.

Depending on circumstances, it is possible to do this with the Panasonic G3.

I looked up the G3 and it has no hmdi output.....but the gh2 has one....did you mean that one? or have any experience with it?

Probably what I meant. Sorry no first hand experience with Panasonics, only Canons. Philip Bloom mentioned the Panasonic clean output but said it wasn't entirely without problems.

Maybe one of the Panasonic guys here can chime in.

RED EPIC would be a much better choice for something like that. Course that's also very pricey. So perhaps a camera with a clean HDMI- say an AF100 or other camcorder would be better.

As Noah said, there are better ways that will inevitably cost more for the camera but....

These better ways don't just mean a better technical quality result they also mean a smoother workflow with less problems and thus less time too in post.
In the end the savings in purchasing a lower cost camera could be more than consumed by a more complex and slower post production time.

Sony F3, Sony FS100, Panasonic AF100. RED Epic, Arri Alexa etc etc.

Yes, you should be able to record out, but the quality through HDMI is not going to be the same as in camera.

No the batteries won't last that long, even with a dual battery.

These cameras are not ideal for such long continuous shoots.


Rent a Panasonic AF-100 or Sony
