The above video was captured with a Canon Rebel T2i (aka 550D), along with the nifty-fifty 50mm f/1.8, 18-55mm kit lens and Sigma 70-300mm f/4-5.6 lens, and it was edited using Premiere Pro, After Effects and Twixtor.

I’ve been trying out the Nikon Coolpix P500 for a couple of weeks or so now. Similar to its predecessor, the P100, the Nikon P500 captures VGA-quality video at 120fps and QVGA-quality at 240fps. While both are fun, I find the 120fps at VGA’s 640 x 480 resolution much more practical for sharing on TV sets or online.
Below is a short sample of some clips I shot at both frame rates. Note that the 240fps footage has been up-rezzed in post from its native 320 x 240 resolution to standard VGA 640 x 480 resolution in order to match the 120fps frame size.
Check it out below. [Read more…]
Eric Kessler let Philip Bloom take his new RED EPIC for a spin and also volunteered to be a test subject while members of the Kessler Crane crew threw glasses of water at him. The result a rather entertaining slow motion mashup of Kessler’s abuse.
Check out the full rundown of the operation over at Philip Bloom’s site.
