Hi all, I graduated from film school but wanted to really get into detailed understanding of cinematography and other technical aspects of filmmaking. So while waiting to purchase a motion capture camera for filmmaking, I bought myself a 7D to teach myself aspects of cinematography/photography (aperture, f/stops, lighting, composition etc). I'm enjoying photography in the meantime, and I've just purchased a Panasonic LX5 for all those times I wish I had the 7D with me but didn't, for reasons of bulk or convenience or just not wanting to carry an expensive DSLR around. Waiting for the LX5 package to arrive right now. I assume most people start off with a point-n-shoot or compact first and then progress to a DSLR like the 7D but I seem to have come from the other direction.
