Will my wife be able to make a video with a DSLR?
Apr 11, 2011

Me and my wife were looking into getting a new HD video camera to make high quality video of our baby daughter. I currently own a 30D. I am pumped about making HD video with a 7D, 60D, or T3i...but my wife is a bit nervous about the whole "manual focusing thing".

i want to make video with bokeh and the film look, but the question i have is: Sometimes my wife may want to make a quick video of our daughter, are there any settings where she will be able to set the camera (aperture, focal length etc.) in order to make a "easy video"? Most times, I will be making the videos, but sometimes she will too, and i'm afraid that all she will capture is a blurry video. Can anyone give me some tips/advice? Thanks.

ps--the lenses i have are the sigma 17-70 macro (not IS), canon 55-250 IS, and the 50mm 1.8.
