Visit http://thepodcastersstudio.com/gear to see and read about all the gear used in this video.
If you're new to the Canon 70D DSLR or just new to shooting video with DSLR's this tutorial will help you learn how to setup your Canon DSLR to shoot high quality video.
Shown here, the 70D has a few specific features that are a nice upgrade from the Canon 60D such as a touchscreen, great auto focus system, audio meters viewable while recording and white balance shift. Learn how to setup these new features as well as the core settings for shooting with any video camera set to manual control.
Start by putting your camera in manual so that you have the ability to control all the settings. Record in 1080p at 24fps with a shutter speed of 1/50. Leave these settings like this for your entire shoot.
Use the aperture and ISO controls to get the proper exposure for whatever environment you are filming in. The larger your aperture, the more light you can get into your camera and thus the less you'll need to increase your ISO which will create some noise in your image once you get to a large enough number. My favorite ISOs are 160, 320, 640 and I try to adjust my settings to remain at these numbers at all times for the cleanest image possible.
