You know that "movie mode" hidden in the menu system of your DSLR camera? It's not just a novelty feature. Together with the emergence of large CMOS imagers, HDSLRs are nothing short of a revolutionary, democratizing, disruptive moviemaking technology, as important as the invention of color film, 16mm, or HDTV.

But don't just take my word for it, check out these ten examples of stunning DSLR cinematography!

Zacuto's Great Camera Shootout 2010 is another great demonstration of what DSLRs are capable of when compared to (much more expensive) 35mm film cameras.

If you would like to learn how to use your DSLR to flex your fiilmmaking muscle, FACT are running introductory workshops to shooting on DSLR workshops this summer!

These are all delivered by industry professionals who have shot on digital cinema cameras such as RED and are practical hands on sessions covering the potential of the lenses associated with the Canon 5D, approaches to sound capture and getting your project off to a final HD edit.
