First Feature Shot Entirely on the Canon 7D

I just want to declare that by tonight I will have completed principal photography on the first feature film shot entirely with the canon 7D.

Entirely with the 7D.


The Searching for Sonny guys claim to have the first feature shot on a DSLR - not so. I completed shooting on "The Louisiana Conversation" in February 2009. As far as I can tell they haven't finished principal photography. Maybe they have. I guess it just irked me that they took the credit, and while their film does look good - I was first. Of course the production team still doesn't have distribution on The Louisiana Conversation (or maybe they do) I don't know -I'm just a hired gun...

Anyway, that's part of the reason I started a Blog in the first place - to document what's going on. Now that we're almost done with Winter Nights, I can start to share technical details and stories from the production. Cool!
