Chase Jarvis went sailing in the South China Sea for a Officine Panerai job. In this video he breaks down what gear he brought for the shoot. This is a great example of getting skinny with your gear. Deciding what to bring with you on a shoot like this can be maddening. He is lucky enough to play with two Nikon D7000 cameras. He breaks down both video and stills into two separate bags. Storage and Backup play a great role in his kit. The killer Panerai watches don’t hurt either. Click here for more details on Chase’s blog.Read more

Chase was kind enough to share this with me early on but we have been slammed with expo coverage. We are cutting the night away and will have DV Expo coverage up soon. In the meantime please enjoy the cool sounds and great images of this very talented man. Check out the full article here. Here is a rip from his site. “Thanks so much to everyone who tuned in to the sharing of my experiences with the new Nikon D7000 camera in this post here, where I featured the behind the scenes video and a new short film: Benevolent Mischief. It just so happens that I’ve been sitting on another little nugget since then that I’m excited to share today: the Benevolent Mischief REMIX featuring MC Victor Shade and MTK.” Courtsey: Chase JarvisRead more

Chase Jarvis sent me a link to this killer video shot with the new Nikon D7000. He has had the camera for some time and was cool enough to share this info with C5D. Here is a rip from the post. Thanks to the Chase Jarvis crew for hooking up this video! Click here to check out Chase’s site for more photos, tech specs and stills. “There’s a feature list a mile long after the jump below, but the only data I cared about heading into this can be summed up in 4 lines: _16.2 Megapixels. (CMOS sensor, DX format, 6fps) _1080p full HD video. (24fps) _ISO up to 6400 (pushable to 25,600) _Magnesium alloy construction (read “pro quality”) When an automaker rolls a new car off the assembly line, the first thing they do is call in a professional driver to “road test” that car. They’re armed with the basic tech specs, but the drivers aren’t overly saddled with capturing data and providing computer-style analysis. In reality they don’t care about that stuff. The care how the car feels. In the very same way, I got to “road test” the Nikon D7000. This behind the scenes video (above), this short film Benevolent Mischief I got to make with the new 1080p HD video (below), and the still photos I shot after the jump tell my story of getting to play with this cool new camera.” **Update: Here is a more complete spec list from the site. _16.2 megapixels with new Nikon DX-format CMOS sensor (4,928 x 3,264 pixels) _ISO sensitivity range from 100 to 6400 at normal setting; can be raised to ISO 25600 _Full HD (1080p) D-Movie _H.264/mpeg-4 video compression _Makes .mov files at 24fps in 1080 (30fps at 720HD) _Movie has built in mono, but stereo sound recording capability with optional external mic via stereo mini jack _20 minute movie recording times _High durability magnesium alloy body (dust and water resistant) _6 frames per second still image capture _9, 21, 39 point AF systems _Double SD card slots _12 or 14 bit color depth _HDMI out display port _Nikon Creative Lighting System (CLS) capabilities onboardRead more
