Got my T2i in today, and I LOVE IT.

I bought:

T2i +kit lens
Battery Grip
Extra Battery
Canon 50mm 1.8

So far all I've had time to shoot video wise was this one clip. I will get more up soon hopefully, today was a very busy day. So only 1 clip I wanna show and only 1 photo for now.


still was shot with Canon 50mm 1.8 in manual mode.


the clip was straight out of the camera, no editing, no color work. I only stripped out the sound so you wouldn't hear me making funny noises to my cat :P

p.s. the cat's name is JONES. named after the cat in Aliens. NOT the cat in Alien mind you, my friend scott's cat is named after Jones in Alien :P

and I can't ENTIRELY remember but I think this was shot at ISO 1600, but it might have been 800. oh and it was kit lens 18-55.

Looks great! Now was any type of lighting used ( extra) or just available light?

Kit lens looks rock solid to me.......

I see you have a fan up there, can you shoot some shots of the fan at diff speeds for us?

this was just available light, only overhead living room light and apartment entrance lights on (not very bright) and light coming in from window through blinds.

This looks like the same fabric related stuff that Chris Santucci posted...

fyi, that fabric is like a really shiny plasticy material, its a flag actually. does that make sense? so that could account for it looking so strange.

The Wikipedia article spells it out...the flag fabric weave can be
seen as a wave frequency interacting with the scanning frequency
of the cmos imager.

The tricky part is once this waveform interaction has been recorded, playing it back
on different devices (lcd computer, crt television screens) may introduce even more interactions.

Anybody who has scanned newspaper halftone pictures has seen the effect. As you change the size (enlarge) the scanned image,
the moire effect goes away.

That seems to say a fix is possible.

I've heard that motorcyclists have to be careful driving across bridges with metal decks...the kind that allow water to pass through. The pattern of the deck can interact with the tread of the cycles tires at certain speeds and introduce a weave motion in the direction of travel.
Scarier than moire, but pretty much the same thing.
