I believe Macgregor just nailed it on test videos with this sample footage from the Nikon D7000.

did you mention the lens used here? 18-105 kit lens? looks like 18 for all the clips.

Yes, this is a pretty piece of video and the photographer has a sense of humor. What is most funny of all is a still photographer with a video camera – it turns out looking just like a slide show comprised of a collection of stills.
There is no real movement here – no kids running or jumping; no deer bounding through the redwoods – anyway, as pretty as this slide show is, I don’t get a sense of how the video aspect of the camera captures movement. Also there is no zooming and little panning. So, “Test Video to End All Test Videos”is either a gross exaggeration or Mr. Reagan is also isolated in the world of still photography. No harm done, just some over-hype..

Sorry to over-hype it Cole. Perhaps I got a bigger kick out of the captions.

I could get used to naked trees and ducks if my images would come out as nice. Very entertaining!

Yea, again, funny captioning, but do you see what is being said about the videography itself? I’ve done the very same thing the first time I recorded video. It was a series of well-composed, well-lit stills. The beauty and uniqueness of video, especially compared to stills is it’s ability to actually MOVE. I don’t mean to be critical of you personally Eric, and you did go over the top in your titling…..

Looks like this guy has seen Baraka a few times! The video looks great. Looks like it has very little noise, which is awesome.
