For the first time AF for dSLR video actually looks promising, at least from this clip

This presumably is not the same autofocus system as the 5DIII or anything else in the Canon range? Unbelievably impressed! Not quite so impressed with the price tag What price did the 60D start out at? Was it not around £750? Just a guess

It is Canon's all new "Dual Pixel CMOS AF" which benefit live view and video.
The service of a "focus puller" in low cost filmmaking may soon be under threat.

In low cost filmmaking do you actually use focus pullers?

Of course. It still cost money if one charges. Unless it is free then you might not need one.

I'm just thinking that the only reason to need a focus puller for filming is due to the size of the camera meaning it's not doable for one person.  For small productions using DSLRs it would seem strange (to me) to employ someone just for focussing.

Ahhh, you need to be submerged to filmmaking geekdom to appreciate. I use to think the same but focus puller is really handy especially for large dSLR sensor. I've often see a team of people working with a 60D. Not uncommon.

It depends on what you call a small production, I wouldn't call having a team of people around a camera a small production.

Where did I say a team of people a small production Look, if you employ a focus puller it going to cost money which add to the overall cost to the production, unless he/she is giving their time for free which is highly unlikely when it involves payments. If the budget are comfortably high and you don't mind sharing the cost with a focus puller then by all means hire one. My reference about low cost production, while don't contain any figure is dependent on the individual. I think all videographers will have their own ball park figure on different level of production costs and whether they wish to include someone else to assist him and share the profit. Red, seems point scoring with triviality is your favourite pastime here

Mr Reds job on here is to disagree and question the post above. Its nothing personal, it just keeps him employed to make Purestorm popular in the search engines by commenting on the majority of posts about any subject at all. It says on the profile that he's giving shoots a rest until 2013... This was to enable him to spend more time pursuing the career of serial forum poster Before Mr Red knocks this post down too... don't worry, in real life I'm sure we'd all like you It's just on here that your posts are a tiny weeny weeny bit annoying but its all good fun.

A new crop sensor video camera must be very exciting for canon users.

Can't sleep at night thinking about it (well at least the features they should've added instead)

Mr Red never annoys me... he at least stays on topic and is generally funny. His original question seemed quite fair, I have never see a team of more than two using a 60D and one of them was the director. Low cost by definition would not waste money on 2 people when one can do both jobs.

the pizza base appeared to be soggy.
i'd still cook using the 5d(2or3) causing the
base to crispen up.
using a gmo-laden unripe salad tomato for the recipe
is a travesty
