— Are you ready to take your
videos to the next level?

In this free camera class,

I’m gonna be sharing with you 10 tips

for getting better footage
with your mirrorless

or DSLR camera.

Coming up!

— [Man] You gotta just press Record.

— Sean Cannell here with Think Media,

bringing you the best tips
for leveling up your videos.

Today, I’m gonna be shooting
with the Canon EOS R,

a full-frame mirrorless camera
that’s great for creators

that want to level up to
a more advanced camera.

But the tips in this video
actually will apply to any DSLR

or mirrorless camera that you have.

So stick around because
you’re gonna learn a lot.

And shout out to Canon
for sponsoring this video

and making it possible.

Now, before getting into these tips,

I wanna pass the question
off to you and say,

«What camera are you
shooting with right now?»

Let me know in the comments.

And also, take advantage of show notes

in the description down below

and time codes aka
chapters that we’ve added,

so if at any point you
get lost in the content,

you can just rewind or select
the area you wanna watch.

Tip number one is you’re going to want

to select your shooting mode.

For most people just starting out,

you’re gonna be shooting video in Auto.

But your goal if you really
want better video quality

is to use Manual settings.

The second, you’re going to
want to select the frame rate.

Now, this is a huge mistake people make

is they don’t think
about this ahead of time

before they start shooting video.

Your standard options are
24 frames a second, 30, 60,

and some cameras go to 120
or higher for slow motion.

If you’re wondering which
one you should choose,

24 frames a second will
give you that film look,

and a lot of YouTube creators

and video creators love that look.

30 frames is kind of just
a universal standard.

And 60 frames a second is
actually what a lot of gamers

like to use ’cause it’s
a higher frame rate,

but it’s also nice to
shoot in 60 frames a second

because it gives you slow
motion in editing afterwards.

So if you’re shooting real-time video,

you wanna select 24 or 30.

And if you wanna slow down your video,

you wanna make sure
you select at least 60.

Now, in addition to frame rate,

you also wanna select your resolution.

In most cases, you’re either
gonna be selecting 1080p

or 4K resolution if your camera has it.

Most of the footage you’re
seeing in this video

was shot at 1080p,

but the camera also has 4K.

In fact, right now, you
are seeing the 4K footage

of this camera.

One thing to note is that at 4K,

there is a crop in factor,

so we’re using a little
bit of a wider lens

to get this shot.

And so here’s another
example of the difference.

Right now, you’re looking
at a shot at 1080p,

and then I turned on 4K

and now you can see how much it crops in

with a factor of 1.7.

The third tip is selecting
your video compression quality.

Now, a lot of times your camera

is not gonna give you an option for this,

but one of the cool things with the EOS R

is that it has a choice
to do IPB or All-I.

If you’re looking to just do quick vlogs

and not trying to do a lot

of post-processing in video
editing, IPB is great.

But if you want the
highest quality possible,

then select All-I.

And speaking of video
quality, here’s a bonus tip.

One of my favorite things
about the Canon EOS R

is this camera comes
equipped with Canon Log,

C-Log for short,

which is designed to accommodate

around 11 stops of dynamic range.

So what does that even mean?

Well, these clips will
really show you an example.

This scene that you’re seeing right here

is shot with C-Log off,

and you can see that the
shadows are very dark

and the really bright sun area
is a little more overexposed.

This is the conversation of dynamic range.

Now, in this shot, C-Log is on,

which brings up the shadows.

We can see more in the shadowy area,

and it allows us to see more

in the really sunny, bright area.

So if you don’t really wanna
spend time editing in post

and color grading your footage,

then you would not wanna use C-Log.

But if you really wanna
create cinematic content,

then C-Log is an awesome tool.

Now, tip number four is White Balance.

If you’ve ever turned on your camera

and everything’s been really
yellow or really blue,

it’s probably because your
White Balance was set wrong.

Here at Think Media,

we, a lot of times, will
use Custom White Balance,

but for everything you’re
seeing in this video,

we just went with Auto,

and Canon has really good color accuracy.

But one cool feature to note on the EOS R

is that there is an option

for Ambient Priority or White Priority.

Because sometimes, your Auto
White Balance might feel

like it needs a little
bit of shift in color,

and I’ve found that switching
between those two modes

in different lighting situations

can get the color dialed in perfect.

Tip number five is Picture Style.

And if you’re shooting on a Canon camera,

your options are gonna be
things like Auto, Portrait,

Landscape, and Neutral.

But the footage you’re
seeing in this video,

we chose the picture profile Neutral.

Now, I know we’ve been
covering a lot in this video,

but if you’ve already
learned something new,

can you hit the Like button?

And let’s just summarize with two quick

and easy setup options

depending on what you want
to achieve with your videos.

For quick videos and vlogs

that don’t really require any
color correction or grading

when video editing,

simply select IPB with C-Log off

and choose the Auto picture style.

Select All-I, turn C-Log
on for making short films,

achieving that cinematic look,

and more flexibility in editing.

Number six is choose your Autofocus Mode.

In this area, Canon absolutely crushes

with what’s called Dual Pixel Autofocus.

And the EOS R comes equipped
with not just face tracking

but eye tracking.

Right now, you can see this clip

of me walking back and forth
in front of the camera.

And you can see that the
camera does a great job

of tracking my face and
even tracking my eye.

In fact, Canon just released
a new firmware update

that has taken this Autofocus
to an even another level.

So make sure if you do have this camera

to upgrade to the latest firmware.

If you’re logging and going
to have a face in the shot

or filming somebody and you want the focus

to stay on that individual,

then Face Tracking is the best setting.

Whereas, if you wanna shoot landscape

or some type of an object,

and what’s cool with Canon

is you can select 1-point Autofocus

and simply tap the touch screen

to tell the camera where to
focus and it’ll grab it quickly.

Tip number seven for shooting in Manual

is dial-in your aperture, your
shutter speed, and your ISO.

Now, I know we’ve already set up a lot

of the foundational settings

when it comes to the
video quality and color,

but now we wanna make sure
basically our exposure

is correct.

So for the footage you’re
seeing in this video,

what we think about first
is really shutter speed.

If we’re shooting at 24 frames a second,

then we’re going to
choose 50 shutter speed

which follows the 180 rule.

What does that mean?

It just means that we want
to double our frame rate

when it comes to our shutter speed.

Now, the only time you want
to change your shutter speed

is if you change your frame rate.

And so, for the slow motion shots

that you’re seeing in this video,

we chose 60 frames a second

which means we changed our
shutter speed to 125th.

Once the shutter is set,

next, I like to select my aperture.

When shooting video,

I like to set the aperture
as low as possible.

For this kit lens, that’s F4.0.

Now, if you wanna brighten
or darken your shot,

you just adjust the ISO.

Now, if you’ve set your ISO
to as low as it goes, 100,

and your shot is still too bright;

at that point, I would
raise the aperture up

to get the exposure set correctly.

And now that we’ve got all
of our settings dialed,

we are ready to press Record.

One of the ways to make
your videos more dynamic

is to include different
styles and different shots.

Here are some ideas for the
different types of styles

and video shots that you can get.

One, of course, is the
popular vlog style shot,

which is really easy
to do with this camera

because of the vari-angle
touch LCD screen.

Simply flip the screen towards you,

tap your face to lock in
Autofocus, and you’re good to go.

You can also try locked-down shots,

where you set your camera on a tripod,

frame up something that looks cool,

and then hit Record.

Consider including camera motion,

which could be following a
subject or panning your camera

to really engage the viewer.

The cool thing about this kit
lens is it’s very versatile

and can achieve three really popular shots

that can improve your videos.

There’s the long shot aka the wide shot.

This shows the subject from top to bottom.

For a person, this would be head to toes,

though not necessarily
filling the whole frame.

There’s the medium shot.

This shows part of the
subject in more detail.

For a person, a medium
shot typically frames them

from about waist up.

And then, there’s the close-up.

This fills the screen
with part of the subject,

such as a person’s head or face.

Frame this tightly,

the emotions and
reactions of the character

dominate the scene.

The kit lens that I’m using
in this video is super cool

because the focal length
is very versatile.

It has a range of 24 to 105.

So you can see it here zoomed out at 24,

you get that beautiful wide shot,

and then you can zoom all the
way in to 105 millimeters.

This allows you to achieve
three popular shots

that will level up your videos.

But you might be thinking,

«Sean, if I’m moving my camera,

«how do I keep the shot steady?»

Well, I’m glad you brought that up

because tip number eight
is use stabilization.

There are multiple different things

that you can do to remove
vibration and shake

from your videos.

The first is Movie Digital IS.

This is an in-camera setting

which will remove some shake
and smooth out your footage.

In order to do that,

the camera ultimately crops
in the frame a little bit,

because it’s going to remove the shake

on the edges of the
shot that are not seen.

And while image stabilization settings

vary between different cameras,

this camera comes equipped
with three levels:

Off, Standard, and Enhanced.

In this shot, I’m walking and filming

with the camera in a vlog style

with image stabilization
completely turned off.

Now, you’re seeing Standard
Image Stabilization.

You can tell the shot is smoother,

some of the jitter and
shake has been removed,

but the shot is also
cropped in a little bit

to achieve that result.

Now, you’re seeing Enhanced
Image Stabilization.

This is gonna give you the
smoothest shot possible,

but it’s also going to crop
in the most on the video.

Now, again,

that was in-camera Movie
Digital Image Stabilization,

but another form of
stabilization can be lens-based.

Some lenses like this one
have a stabilizer built in

that you can turn on
and off with a switch.

The cool thing is that
you can pair the two.

You can turn on the
Standard Image Stabilization

that is camera-based,

and turn on the stabilizer and the lens

to achieve the smoothest shot possible.

Thirdly, to achieve
even more stable video,

consider using a tripod where
you can lock down your shot

or a monopod which gives you
a little bit more movement

but still gives you that
anchor to the ground

to keep your shot super smooth.

And then if you want to
achieve maximum movement

while maintaining maximum stability,

you can consider investing in a gimbal,

which allows you to get
super cool cinematic shots

which will really level
up the production value

of your videos.

Tip number nine is dial in your audio.

Your options here to use
an on-camera microphone,

or if your camera has a
microphone input like the EOS R,

then you can really level up your audio

with either something
like a lavalier microphone

or a shotgun microphone.

Let’s cut to a clip.

Babe, we came out,

we wanted to make a
video with Sean Bradley,

but in the midst of
trying to get some shots,

he went on a little sprint.

— [Sonja] He had an accident.

— He bit the—
— It happens.

— He bit the dust.

— He’s a boy.

— Another one bites the dust.

— Another one. His poor little nose.

— And a cool feature that this camera has

is also a headphone output,

allowing you to monitor your audio

in the field when filming.

But here’s a cool tip:

if you don’t have a headphone jack,

make sure to play back
your clip after you filmed

just to check the audio to
make sure that it sounds great.

Now, we’re about to
get into tip number 10,

but stick around because I
actually have a bonus tip for you

that will help you get better
results on social media

and YouTube with your content.

But if you’ve been getting
value so far in this video,

can you hit the like button
and leave me a comment below

on what photo or video tips
you’d like to learn next

on this channel?

Myself and the Think Media team

are here to help you crush it,

so let us know what videos you wanna see.

And if you’ve been loving the footage

that you’ve been seeing
from the Canon EOS R,

it’s on sale for a limited time,

and you can actually grab this kit

using the link in the
description down below.

But tip number 10 before
we get to our bonus tip is,

get that blurry background.

To achieve the maximum
blurry background look

with this setup;

first, zoom the lens
in as far as possible;

second, set the aperture
as low as possible.

For this lens, that is F4.0.

And then third,

make sure your subject is as
close to the lens as possible

and away from the background.

You don’t want them up against a wall.

You want some separation,

so there’s layers to the shot.

When it comes to getting
that blurry background look,

this is why people like
to upgrade their lenses

to lenses with a lower aperture.

One of my favorites

is the Canon RF 50
millimeter 1.8 STM lens.

Also known as the nifty fifty,

this lens is super budget.

And because it has an aperture of 1.8,

you can get that super nice,
milky, blurry background.

But I promised you a
bonus tip and it’s this:

don’t forget to shoot
photos for social media

and thumbnail photos for YouTube content.

The Canon EOS R is a full frame camera

that absolutely crushes photography.

And one of its cool features
is the built-in Wi-Fi

and Bluetooth technology.

All you have to do is download
the free Canon Connect app,

and then you can easily pair
your camera with your phone,

so you can control it.

This is great if you’re
creating content solo

because you can put
your camera on a tripod,

dial in the shot composition,

monitoring the image on your phone,

and then fire off as
many photos as you need.

In fact, speaking of photos and lenses,

on «Camera Lenses
Explained for Beginners.»

In this video, you’re gonna learn

what all of the different numbers mean

and how the different focal
lengths of lenses look

when it comes to creating content.
