Shanes DSLR series has been the most useful information for series movie makers. Thanks to B&H for recruiting Shane for this series. Samples of his work shot with the Canon DSLRs are simply beautiful to look at. I wish Mr. Hurlbutt the most success in his quest for alternative ways to tell stories using DSLRs along side some of the more expensive gear.
