I have been digging through some sample images with the 7D Mark II. So far, I’m very impressed. I will have a bigger selection of photos later this week hopefully, but I wanted to share this 100% comparison of ISO 3200 images shot with the 7D Mark II and 5D Mark II. [Read more…]
Just when we thought the Magic Lantern madness couldn’t get any crazier, they go and enable raw video capture on the 5-year-old Canon 50D. By taking advantage of the 50D’s ability to push out a video feed from the sensor for live view, the Magic Lantern crew dug further to apply what they’ve learned from recent 5D Mark III and 5D Mark II experiments to draw raw video out of the 50D.

Previously, LockCircle released the LockPort HDMI port savers, which proved successful and led to the logical development of a port saver for USB ports on HDSLRs. LockPort HDMI was eventually developed and released for Nikon D600 and D800 HDSLRs, so I would expect a LockPort USB model to be in the works for those cameras as well.
LockPort USB is available for $139 direct from LockCircle. More details here on LockCircle’s website.
Photography Bay reader Mayeul Akpovi just cranked out another solid timelapse video of Paris. As you may have seen in Part I and Part II, Akpovi produces an incredible sense of motion in his timelapse work.
He uses a variety of gear to accomplish these shots:
- Canon 5D Mark III
- Canon 5D Mark II
- Canon 24-70mm f/2.8L USM
- Sigma 15mm f/2.8 EX DG Fisheye
- Samyang 14mm f/2.8
- Tamron 70-300mm f/4-5.6 Di VC USD
- Filters: ND2 to ND400
Akpovi accomplishes those surreal camera movements not with a large dolly, jib or mechanized slider, but with a simple tripod and some camera shake reduction in post processing. You can get a glimpse of this technique in an earlier behind-the-scenes video below.
You can see more of Akpovi’s work here on his Vimeo account.
