Card Acrobatics - 60 seconds with a deck of cards - a promo shot on GH2

Dale Campbell Films

Recommended Posts


This is a short promo video I shot for my brother (he is a magician). My GH2 is running Sedna A, everything was shot in the 720p mode at 50fps to allow us to conform to 24fps for slowmo. Lenses were either Voigtlander 25mm f0.95 or a Tokina 11-16 f2.8.
Colour profile was smooth all dialled down. Dolly shots done with a Kessler PB Dolly + Electra drive.

@galenb Thanks! Nope mostly just the standard conform to 24p. The shot at 26 seconds had a tiny bit of extra slow down mostly for music timing purposes.
The last shot looks really slowed down as he hits the card with his elbow because by doing that he takes most of the spin off :) Was very happy with that as it makes it seem like a 240fps style shot!
We're going to hire an FS700 soon to do some really slow stuff with lots of the more complicated tricks :o

      Years ago, Tahnee was in a wheelchair and doctors told her she would never be able to dance again. Now she is one of the world's most talented dancers and choreographers.

      Magic Lantern RAW 14bit video.
      Graded in Davinci Resolve.
      Mostly 6D, very few shots on 5D3.
      Thanks for watching,

      THere must be a way to do this! I just want to get slow mo. I'm on a 25p timeline and I've been given 60p footage to incorporate. Its all silent.  I've dropped the 60p (59.94) into premiere and slowed it down 41.71%.  Seems a bit of a bodgy way to do it. Is there a better way?  (like in virtualdub? Ideally you could just hack the header info to change the time signature.

      Here's 3 quick fun shots made on FS700 at 400FPS. I've hired this for a couple of music promos so I just made some quick shots to try it out.


      It's a great camera, but the screen potion is pretty retarded, and the ND filter wheel feels incredibly cheap.
