Recently, I modeled for ImageMechanics.com so they could make a reel showing off the capabilities of the new Canon 5D Mk II. Check out the video below for some strangely vibrant video of me! Man.. the future. It’s awesome.
This video was shot on the first day the new firmware for the Canon 5D Mk II was released which allowed manual exposure modes. It was shot in vertical orientation to maximize the resolution for simultaneous hd video and stills captured in raw format (VCS – Video Capture for Stills). While the video was running, the shutter was triggered to capture still images. The last video frame freezes and several following frames are missing as the camera switches modes. My contacts at Canon say it is around 1 second of missing video but it seems to be as little as three or four frames. Lighting was Profoto HMI with a beauty dish. The shutter click is the actual sound the camera makes as it captures the high res raw file. The white transitions were added as a visual buffer to the next clip (no flash was used). The camera was mounted on the Redrock Micro DSLR bundle. ImageMechanics.com (music by Max Tundra)
