Quick Take Shot with Apple iPhone 4 Cut With iMovie App.

Quick Takes

By: Jared Abrams My AC Hunter Kerhart had the idea to shoot this little quick take on the Zacuto Z Finder Junior with his iPhone 4 and cut it using the iMovie App. It took us about twenty takes to get it right. I kept flubbing my lines, we do not rehearse or use a script of any kind with our quick takes. I rely mostly on the info I have on hand....Read More

Shooting half-naked women without permits? 5D says yes!

Cameras

The most apparent advantage of shooting with an HDSLR aside from cost is its ability to go anywhere inconspicuously.  Director Ilya Polyakov was looking for a way to facilitate shooting three half-naked women on a city street in broad daylight with no permits.  We decided that the Canon 5D was the way to go.  The documentary style aesthetic was achieved by shooting handheld with a Red Rock Micro Eyespy Deluxe...Read More

We were fighting the sun all day until magic hour....Read More

Cameras

By Jared Abrams Videomaker.com caught me when we were uploading a few interviews for C5D in the press room at NAB 2010. I admit, the media center was such a nice place to chill from the hectic pace down on the showroom floor. The guys from Videomaker were super cool. The best part is that they were using a Canon 5D Mark II with the 24-105mm kit lens! I wanted to finally thank them...Read More

Drop Test #3. Canon LP-E6 Battery

Quick Takes

By: Jared Abrams Here is another helpful Drop Test. We decided to go with something a little more realistic this time around. We dropped a Canon LP-E6 Battery from about six feet. As you can see in the video the battery casing cracked open. This could result in serious damage to the camera if anything were to leak out. Hopefully Canon will take note and improve the casing on these batteries. At over...Read More
