First up, Scott Bourne interviews Rich Harrington about how to get started in DSLR video. Rich Harrington then takes the microphone and talks to Terry White from Adobe about changes at Adobe as well as Terry’s photography. Our third segment, Melissa Niu interviews Matt Kloskowski of Kelby Training to find out about how the photo industry is evolving.

  3. Great show but you missed a key concept to be aware of when shooting DSLR video and considering a camera. I learned this the painfully hard way and too late. I purchased a Sony NEX 7 thinking it was a “hybrid” camera. Wrong!!! The first time I tried shooting longer than 8 minute clips, the sensor overheated and shut down. Every time. I’d never heard of this. Reviews of the camera were always raves and never mentioned this. But a quick web search revealed a rampant problem that Sony has yet to address. I had gotten a bunch of lenses and expensive ad dons and sold the whole batch at a loss one year later. I’ll never buy another Sony.

    • We only had so much time ;). But I’ve also had pro video cameras over heat. If you’re shooting in a particularly hostile environment, its possible with any camera. I’ve never had my Nikon, Olympus, or Panasonic shut down this way. We had a first generation Canon 7D shut down twice… but firmware updates addressed.

      With that said… These are not cameras for shooting a long form event. We discussed recording limits and that you shouldn’t roll too long. For things like interviews I tend to break between questions (but have rolled for 30 minutes plus in past).

      Like all gear in critical situations, I’d carry two bodies. For most users in most situations this isn’t an issue.’

      Thanks for post.
