If you watch this piece please make sure you see it in HD and full screen. I’m posting this not only because there are beautiful shots in it, but also because of it’s very cinematic feel.
I think this is a great example of how dolly timelapse can add some breathtaking sequences to a video clip and give it that 1 million dollar look.
The dolly used in this timelapse video was a $895 “dynamic perception” kit.
This very affordable electronic slider is currently on back-order. I would guess the video above, which was posted last week and already has 450 thousand hits, produced some sales for the “dynamic perception” kit.
There are many other similar dolly systems currently being sold and I’m sure many of you readers have links and experience on these for us. Please share your knowledge in the comments.
[UPDATE]: The price on the dolly is $895, the deposit for preorder is $450.
While sweeping through the forum today I came across a very interesting post and video (see above) by long time forum member mthomas (see his avatar on the left).
Tests like these are exactly what we want to see to be able to better evaluate the powers of new cameras like the long anticipated Sony NEXFS-100 large sensor video camera.
cinema5D would have had an FS100 prototype model in house for testing next week but unfortunately we were told the model is broken, so the test had to be cancelled. Makes me even more glad to have users like mthomas around who take time to share valuable info and knowledge.
