Experts. Canon C300 And C100 from Erik Naso on Vimeo.

I shot the main talent with the Canon C300 and the reporters with the Canon C100. Both with Canon Log gamma. This is a update to the original that I shot a few months ago, but I felt pretty confident that the cameras would match pretty close and if you didn’t tell me I used both I don’t think I would have noticed.
Please visit my blog eriknaso.com to see how I graded the spots.

SONY FS700 REVIEW from Matthew Allard ACS on Vimeo.

I have been using the Sony FS700 over the past 2 weeks on assignment in Mongolia. I found some spare time between shoots to do this review.

I apologize for the high shutter on the 5D III that was used to shoot me as I had a non camera person doing it and i forgot to check it! It’s only on 1/2000th!!!

If there is anything I have missed or got wrong or if you have any questions you would like answered don’t hesitate to ask me.

One thing I should mention is that none of this footage was graded. Everything you see is exactly how it was recorded.

Be careful judging quality as the original file size was 30GB and it has been compressed to just over 1GB.

For more information go to dslrnewsshooter.com

I have no commercial agreement with Sony. All views and opinions are strictly my own and not those of any company or organization..

California from Hal Bergman on Vimeo.

If you’ve got four minutes, I’d love to give you a timelapse tour of all of the most visually stunning places California has to offer, filmed over four years, from coastline to mountains to deserts, from cities to agriculture to national parks.

My Flickr: flickr.com/photos/pyrokinetic/ | Instagram: instagram.com/halbergman
Follow me on Twitter: twitter.com/pyrokinetic | Facebook: facebook.com/hal9000
License these clips for your project on Getty Images: bit.ly/gicalif | Dissolve: bit.ly/dicalif
Magic Window Timelapse Screensaver for Macintosh: bit.ly/mwmac

California is the most populated state in the United States, and the third largest. It’s almost double the size of the United Kingdom and slightly larger than Japan. If it was it’s own independent country (as it was briefly for a few weeks in 1846), it would have the 8th largest economy in the world by GDP. It contains the highest summit and the lowest desert in the Contiguous United States (and the second-lowest point in the world), both of which are in the same county. It’s most known for movies, technology, wine, and national parks, but also grows more than a third of the vegetables consumed in the US, two-thirds of the fruits and nuts, and an unknown but presumably huge percentage of marijuana. It contains every major climatological biome except tundra. More important than those facts, to me, is that I was born and spent most of my life here.

The average clip took 1-3 hours to film and another 3-10 hours to edit. Several cuts are from clips more than 24 hours long. I shot 423 clips over four years to make this, but the majority of the 67 clips ultimately used were shot in the last 12 months.

If you’d like some background on my process, Dissolve did an interview with me about that: bit.ly/meethal
I did an interview with Fstoppers, where I discuss technical details, cameras used, and workflow: bit.ly/1wfrWPo

The music is “Intense Rocks” by Sebastian Watzinger, licensed from Audiosocket.

Most of the individual clips are available for license via Getty Images, Dissolve, or directly. Many of them feature in the Magic Window timelapse screensaver for Mac. Links are now at the top.

(If you got this far down, thank you! I’d like to add that I’m available for hire. I specialize in still photography and timelapse photography for travel, architecture, and industry.)

Drive-by Shooting: Using Your Car to Make Better Videos from Vimeo Video School on Vimeo.

Great filmmakers should never let a lack of funds get in the way of an epic project. If you’re searching for a piece of equipment to give your film a polished edge, look no further than your garage. A car can supply that extra professional look without costing extra professional dollars.
