Well, he didn’t actually walk all the way across America, but in his time lapse movie he does. Check out this great stop motion movie created by Peter Cote. There’s over 2,700 individual shots all taken on a Canon 5D Mark II and a 24-70 f/2.8 lens then edited down into a time lapse creation. Apparently there’s a little corporate influence behind the video, because Peter and his company pitched the concept to Levis Jeans, and they sponsored the production. Take a look at the video after the jump along with a behind the scenes one if you’re interested! More →
Today Nikon announced the much-rumored upgrade to it’s D3 SLR camera, cleverly named, the D3s. The D3s is a 12.1-megapixel beast with dual compact flash cards and a standard 12,800 ISO, which can be expanded up to the equivalent of 102,400 ISO. You can use all those ISOs for still images or 24-fps, 1280 x 720 video. That’s only 720p, so unfortunately you won’t be taking any HD 1080p movies on this camera, something Nikon doesn’t seem to care about. An improved battery will allow over 4,000 shots on a single charge and the twin compact flash slots can be used to create an on the fly backup of your main card or to shoot in RAW and JPEG simultaneously. Now that is sexy. Check out the press release for all the dirty details.
