The Board of Education

Please back Jared and get this film made! Even if you just want to buy the Fader ND or monitor – you will be supporting a great cause and a great filmmaker.

Jared Abrams from Wide Open Camera asked to interview me recently and I was happy to chat about all things DLSR video. I’ve also decided to become a backer on his film The Board of Education which I really want to see made.

New EOSHD Facebook presence and mini-blog

https://vimeo.com/19643134

Since Twitter is info-bombardment-madness, things get sunk very quickly on there. I going to move a lot of the EOSHD mini-blogging to a Facebook page. Befriend me here and ‘like’ the new EOSHD page. Or else!

The first mini-blog is about Canon’s 3 year product cycle for the 5D and 1D series and why it is all wrong in the new era of fast moving consumer electronics. At least the 5D Mark 3 will be cutting edge when it finally does hit.

Land’s End – The Gingshang 600 – A GH1 Short

Thought I’d do a Bob Dylan video!

Philip Bloom recently shot a short near the coast with the latest Panasonic broadcast camera – the HPX370. To see how the humble GH1 compares on a similar shoot I went along to see the north coast of Taiwan at Gingshang taking along my GH1 and simply the kit lens.

Video interview with EOSHD.com’s Andrew Reid

As mentioned in a recent blog I stopped by DCView‘s HQ here in Taiwan last week to share some thoughts on HDSLRs for people new to video.

This video interview is about the basics of using HDSLRs but I managed to fit in a bit about the Zacuto Z-Finder!

Very pleased with the way it turned out, it’s the first time I’ve done something like this but it wasn’t a disaster!

Thanks to Katrine, Ivan and Benson at DCView
