Here’s a short clip from a recent trip through the Bogong High Plains in Victoria. I started the journey in Bright and worked my way down through the Bogong High Plains, ending up in Omeo. What a stunning part of Aus through autumn!
Gear used was the 7D + 17-40, 24-70, 70-200, Miller tripod and a glidetrack slider. Edited in FCP and Magic Bullet.I found the glidetrack slider difficult to use especially when trying to achieve a slow, subtle move. Getting a smooth consistent shot is a challenge.
This is the first work I’ve done on the 7D and I’m loving it much more as a video camera than a stills camera – you can really tell Canon had this in mind when they built it. I could have filmed with the 5D but wanted to see how the 7D performed in comparison. Love this camera.
Here’s a short clip I’ve put together from 5D MkII video and time lapse. The Barcoo shire is an area in western Queensland where you’ll find plenty of incredible scenery and very few people! Being a photographer dealing with video files and time lapse seems to be frustrating, but rewarding! This was a lot of fun to shoot, but definitely an eye opener into the epic world of time lapse and HD video. Click here to watch HD in Vimeo.
