Let's try that bodypod test again. This time I can see the difference!

Canon T2i has been discontinued, replacement is the Canon T6i: B&H | Amazon

Since I screwed up the lastย  bodypod video test by not using it for the intended use, I decided to try again.

This time I shot some video of me in to the bathroom mirror so you can see how I am using it.

Again, this video is shot with my 50mm prime lens with no IS (image stabilization). I can’t wait for my next lens with IS to see how this compares.

I over exposed myself in the video a little too much so added a little level and contrast adjustment. No white balance was done, I should have done one because I look a little to warm (orange). I need to slow down and make sure I have my settings right before I hit the record movie button.


  • Wow, you’re fast at pumping out these videos! With a lens that has IS, you’ll be rock solid. Do you own the LCDVF (or compatible) view finders? That point of contact to your eye actually removes the forward and back axis too.

  • I need to slow down on the videos and work on my other sites that pay the bills. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Cool, I can’t wait to try it with an IS lens. I am looking at getting the Canon EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM.

    I don’t have a view finder yet. I am kind of waiting for one to come out that fits the T2i screen and is cheaper than half the price of the camera. Do you know one that works well?

  • okie …..this time it is clear onwhat can be done with a bodypod (actually nothing much ๐Ÿ™‚ )

    Dave , I have canon 18-55 mm lens , I need a 50mm prime lens and a tele zoom lens also , which ones would you suggest ?

  • @hashir,

    I am not an expert at all on lens but everyone I talked to and the podcasts that I listen to say your first lens should be a 50mm prime. The prime will teach you a lot of stuff.

  • Hi Dave! if still looking for aVF, have a look at Meike, it’s exactly the same as LCVF, but cost me 45 sterling, about 55 bucks I guess.

  • Yes, I bought it. And very happy with it, compare with the original LCDVF that my friend has and no difference at all. No dioptric adjustment tho’, but if you don’t use glasses,no problem.
