New Video Online

Hello Guys,

I have created a new video, again a slow motion video but the really specific on this video is the audio. This audio is created with some license free music where I did add some sound effects on and added the Low-pass filter on it. This all creates a simple effect that we all get the feeling like there's something wrong. This can be used in several genres: action, horror, thriller, adventure etc.

watch it here:

Tip: get your volume further on a bit to create some better cinematic field!


The Canon 1Dx Review by DigitalRevTV

Hello Guys,

Of course we all want to own this camera but we haven't the cash for it. The 1Dx is in my opinion the best of the 1D series.

DigitalRevTV have done a hands on review on the camera:

The Canon T4i / 650D's autofocus test

Hello Guys,

Now the T4i / 650D is released, will get many reviews online about everything what haves to do with the camera. I found this review from dpreview.com a very interesting topic: Autofocus.

The "fast autofocus" mode is very usefull for things that goes fast. Anyway, i found it pretty usefull and of course i have a T3i / 600D, so i defenately had to look into it : ).


Oh, and if anyone of you guys have's a 7D and haven't upgraded the firmware jet:

Lowlight test on a Canon kit Lens

Hello Guys,

I have done a cinematic lowlight test on my kit lens from Canon (EFs 18-55mm F/3.5-5.6).
Click here to watch it in HD on You Tube > http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9gPh5F1LnA8&feature=youtu.be

Actually there is a bit to much noise in there but I hope I will get a fast 50mm as soon as  possible!

The Olympic Games are just over Right know but it's still nice to watch at. Personally I wanted to see some lovely film looks out there but I'm not the boss about them.


Fast 50mm F/1.4 from Canon what i really want to have

Hello guys,

Since I know that my kit lens (18-55 F/3.5-5.6) is not fast enough for lowlight conditions, did I decide to buy this lens. When I have enough money, it's mine! I say that we all need a fast 50mm lens because it's just the way to go for great cinematographies.

Since a few years I'm following Andrew Kramer's Videocopilot.net. Out there, are tutorials, blogshows and behind the scene-videos free for us to watch online. They make tutorials for the program After Effects, which is a motion graphics compositor.

(In films are scene's and a few scene's become a film. In a scene are several shot's the scene. After Effects is a program where shots will be in created. A program like Première is for Scene's.)

I should say if you're using After Effects, go and take a look at their website : )
Also if you're not using After Effects, take a look...
