We spent a fair share of the last couple of days trying to sort out the hardware we are going to need to shoot the documentary.
In the end, we settled on the Canon Rebel T2i as the main video camera. We should receive one of these tomorrow. We also wanted to have another Canon camera for redundancy but it turns out the camera (bought on eBay) is broken. I hadn’t taken 10 pictures with it before it fell apart. The piece of glass in-between the mirror and the viewfinder literally fell off.
This is the second camera breaking down on me in two weeks. I’m hoping our luck will turn soon.
By the way, I know Martin already blogged about it, but the Local Mission Eatery is my favorite restaurant in San Francisco so far!
