Haha, this is just great!
Pretty much explains everything about filming with DSLRs.
This is the cover of the Canon AE-1 instruction manual.
It’s full of epicness and good advice. And to be honest - I like it more than the EOS 550D manual.
BTW: It’s from 1980 and like… ‘Shut up, woman!’ Haha.
Just bought myself a Canon AE-1 (released 1976) for around 40 Euro (including shipping) at ebay. The set consists of a black AE-1 with an electric motor, a Canon FD 35mm/3.5 SC and a nice Canon case.
I also bid on the Canon FD 50mm/1.4 SSC lens but the price grew too expensive for me. Afterwards I realized that it would have been a snip even though. But additional 30 Euros weren’t provided by my money purse.
Can’t wait to test it out. It will take a while to see the results - it’s a 35mm film camera. And it’s not even sent to me. Need to do the payment asap!
