About EOSHD, Andrew Reid

EOSHD is the filmmaking blog of Andrew Reid.

A British filmmaker from Manchester, he currently shoots music videos in Berlin.

“As well as a resource for DSLR video cameras, EOSHD is a platform that allows me to showcase my work and explore filmmaking technology. On this blog I share my creative and technical knowledge as I shoot. One of the guiding principals of EOSHD is that nobody should be blocked from practicing their art and executing their talent as a cinematographer or filmmaker due to the cost of equipment.”

“DSLRs and mirrorless cameras are a prime example of what’s so great about accessible filmmaking equipment. Yes, I do also cover the high end too – but the main aim of EOSHD is to steer enthusiasts, consumers and pros to the most suitable DSLR and mirrorless cameras for their needs!”

“EOSHD has been around since 2009, charting every step of the technology from the Canon DSLR revolution to the current era of high-end 4K mirrorless cameras from Sony and Panasonic”

Cinematography style

“I prefer a locked down, slower paced camera-work, involving anamorphic lenses and other optics to produce more abstract looking images from otherwise ‘normal’ scenes. My influences are Kubrick, Tarkovsky and PT Anderson but mainly I find cinematography to be an instinctual process based on emotional sensitivity to images and sound, especially since music videos are a large amount of my current work.”

“Hope you enjoy the blog!”
