Creative timelapse using a Lensbaby…

Here is a creative timelapse video created by Shinnosuke.

I am a fan of both the creative Lensbaby systems, as well as timelapse videos.  I am looking forward to experimenting with my 7D and Control Freak to creating stills, timelapse, and video.  Shorts like these fill me with a lot of inspiration.  Shinnosuke did a great job editing this video together, as well as capturing a night time skyline…  Peaceful but energetic at the same time.

There’s *always* room for Jello…

…or is there?  As a dessert, Jello is almost everyone’s all time favorite quite and easy fix.  But when it comes to videography, most would rather stay away from the jiggles.

Rolling shutters are the norm in today’s affordable video cameras.  In a vast majority of situations, this doesn’t normally present an issue.  However, any time you pan, that’s when things tend to get their wobble on.

By the way a rolling shutter works, vertical items tend to appear slanted when you pan.  And the faster you pan, the worse the slant.  This is because the rolling shutter essentially starts at the top, and works its way down.  So, when you pan, the vertical items get cut into slices by the shutter, then shifted by the motion of the camera.  The effect is wobbly verticals.

Apple has created an amazing and powerful feature in their new iMovie release, iMovie 11.  Check out the details here…

 

Jello shots begone!
