5×5 – Close Complexity

Trying another Vimeo Weekend Challenge of five 5 seconds clips with natural audio with the theme ‘Complexity’. Shooting with Magic Lantern RAW on a Canon 5d mark III. The YN-160 led video light came into it’s own for getting enough light down the Canon 100mm at f14, although I still had to have the ISO …

ML RAW on the 5D Mark III

Trying out the Magic Lantern RAW module on the Canon 5D Mark III. So  far no real performance issues with Lexar Pro 1000x and Kingston 1000x CF cards. I did have to return a Komputerbay CF card but I’ve heard they’re a bit hit and miss. So far the quality and dynamic range is wonderful, …

35mm – Playing with a CCTV lens

Playing with a Fujian 35mm F1.7 CCTV lens. It’s a tiny c-mount lens. It’s a pretty poor performer compared to other m4/3 lenses but it’s a fast 70mm equivalent lens that will set you back £24 from ebay and it has a lot of “character” 🙂

5D mk2 RAW vs GH2 Hacked

Magic Lantern are doing wonderful things to the movie mode on Canon DSLR’s. For a long time I’ve been more impressed (particularly for the price) in the performance of the Panasonic Lumix GH range of m4/3 cameras, they always seem to ‘out res’ there canon counterparts, especially with the hacked firmware that allows for very …

Andrew du Mont – Sculptor Documentary

Finished up work on a little documentary featuring my dad and his steel sculptures. A friend Peter Miranda’s has the idea to do a little doco so we popped down to dorset with a couple of 5D mark 2’s and captured the footage. For more images of various sculptures head on over to andrewdumont.co.uk

24 Second Day

Music: “Quittin’ Time” by Patrick Lee (patrickleemusic.com) I thought I’d try out one of Vimeo’s ‘Weekend Challenge‘. This one was one second clips, so I went for a walk around London having fun with a Sigma 8mm on full frame. I was really fun being part of a whole bunch of people creating videos for …

Shots in the Snow

Trying out a new lens purchase, the Lumix 14-140mm. A great all purpose lens with an insane amount of reach. It was very easy to go out with in these kind of conditions without the need to switch lens and the pretty solid stabilisation saved a lot of post-processing.

SkyLife Time Freeze

We just finished up some work for Sky. Capturing slow motion steady cam moves and added CG elements. My role was mostly in post-production: match-moving, clean-up, CG, grading etc. While being DIT on set and consulting of VFX.

Morphium

Testing a substance called Morphium and its response to sonic vibration. Trying out some match moving and Glidetrack SD with the canon 5D and the CineStyle profile. We went to a car park with to play about with some camera match-moving and effects. Shot on two cameras the Canon 5d mark 2 primarily as well …

Canon 550D / t2i Workshop Test

A quick test of the Canon 550D video mode. Cut and Graded in After Effects, footage stabilised in Virtual Dub with DeShaker plugin. I’m amazed by the video performance of the camera it’s definitely up there with the 5D/7D for video and the price makes it even more of a steal. I’ve tried it on …

Panasonic GF1 impressions

Got my hands on a little Panasonic Lumix GF1 with the 20mm f1.7 prime lens and I’m loving this camera. I can carry it about everywhere and it has near the start up and auto focus response of a DSLR and the ISO performance is beyond what I expected.
