While testing out my new camera I put together this short film on making a coffee. Shot with a Canon 7D with a 18 – 135mm f3.5 lens and a 55-200mm lens was used just for the close up of the coffee pour. Edited quickly in premiere and rendered with out any colour grading. Enjoy.
If your a tech geek like me, then you would of heard of all the buzz about canon’s new DSLR that just got released a month ago. It is capable of shooting 18mega pixel photos but more impressive is its HD video mode. You can film full HD 1080p and 720p. I just managed to get one of these lovely camera’s and it hasn’t left my side since. This is my first little test video and the quality and DOF (Depth of Field) is just amazing. I used the stock 18 – 135mm lens. Its not the best lens but it is still usable. I edited in After Effects and colour corrected the video as well as added bit of motion tracking just for fun.
This is my first shot at Time Lapse photography using a canon 450D DSLR and canon 55-200mm zoom lens. I didn’t expect it to be perfect first time. So I’m quite happy to admit some of the shots light levels were changing and my tripod was being blown by the wind creating a shaky video. I’m sure it will be the first of many.
I used cannon EOS software utlity with about 3 usb extension cables so it would reach my computer. Once I had all the photos I used after effects to composite them together into a video file. At this stage because I was shooting high quality jpegs it was around 4k (4000x4000pixels) which is alot really, too much in fact. I couldn’t even play the file so after a quick crop and export at 720p this is the result.
