Carpe Diem – Canon 7D

I found this little gem, and I  just had to share it.  I’m most impressed with the enthusiasm and expertise of the producer — he got his 7D and ran out shot this video that night.

Avant-Garde short film!

I shot this the first night I purchased my Canon 7D. The idea was to push the ISO to the extreme. Testing very low light settings, the…

Letus Announces New HDSLR Gear!

Got an email today from Letus introducing their line of gear for HDSLRs.  Without having seen these devices, I have to say I’m impressed.  I’m impressed with the restraint it must have taken to hold the individual configurations from the market place until they were all completed.  I’m also impressed with the build quality, if they are everything they appear to be, these should be some fine pieces of equipment.

The Letus Talon Series consists of 5 variations of rail system/viewfinder.  The “Talon K5”  (pictured) uses the extended base and Talon riser. This allows you to have a “step” in the telescoping support rods and includes a 90mm long stainless steel front rod extension. This is great for easily repositioning a follow focus or matte box when changing out lenses. The riser gives you more vertical clearance then you would have with a straight telescoping rod.  Cost:  $1384

The “Hawk” viewfinder is a radical new design and doesn’t resemble anything on the market.  According to Letus, “we were not satisfied with viewfinders on the market so using our knowledge of optics, we decided to build our own.”   Unlike others on the market, the Hawkeye uses totally custom optics designed and manufactured by Letus using 3 lenses in 2 groups rather than a single, off-the-shelf diopter.   Cost:  $385.

They even have a cage!   The Letus Talon DSLR cage has a releasable camera plate along with a sliding / removable top bridge. The camera plate can be attached from the bottom or the front of the cage for easy camera removal when transporting. The top bridge can slide on standard 15mm diameter rods.   Price:  $699.

You can find all of these items and their entire line of HDSLR gear at http://letusdslr.com/.

CS5 ROCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ok — pardon my enthusiasm, but I just have to say, CS5 ROCKS!!!!!!!!! I can’t tell you how gratefull I am for a this program — it’s like buttah! Smooth as glass — I can scrub footage again — but now right out of my 7D!!!!! I haven’t seen smooth scrubbing like this since the days of DV. The program loads smooth…, no glitches. OMG — it’s the sh**!!! Do yourself a favor, if you have a HDSLR, you MUST get CS5!!!! Until you do you’ll be living half a life.

My New Tattoo – Canon T2i/550D

Shot with the Canon T2i. No color grading. Kit lens EF 18-55mm f/5.6 IS – low lighting with this lens isn’t completely amazing.Got the chance to help an aspiring tattooist friend from the comfort of my own couch. If you can call getting ink “comfortable”. Thanks to Ian Crossland and David Haverty for helping with the camera work.. and of course ‘Neener for the “ink-vigorating” tattoo.The tattoo is my design. Basically, it’s the scorpio sign with the numbers 2.39:1 under it. This is, of course, CinemaScope’s aspect ratio for film. The red stripe symbolizes everything I feel passionate about. After all, scorpio’s are damn passionate. The “M” may also stand for music, another of my passions.

Canon 550D with Hague Mini Motion and BMW 1 Series

To test my Hague Mini Motion Steadi Cam i made this short clip with a BMW. I went crazy with the cc and also with optical flares. To take this clip too serious, but i think it shows what is possible with the 550D combined with the Hague Mini Motion.You’ve also to take in mind that this combo is very cheap but it offers you the possibilty to shot some nice and steadi footage, which is not possible when filming handheld.All shots were done in 1920×1080 24 p
