We were asked to shoot a 'behind the scene' short about the two days photo-shot of Benfish Jeans autumn-winter collection. The photographer was the very talented Zoltán Sárosi who is one of the best known fashion photographers in Hungary.

First day we started at the studio with the make up, after that we traveled to Szentendre a little touristic village which is very liked because of their little romantic streets and atmosphere. Here were shoot the image pictures, and day two was planed to shot the pictures for the catalog at the studio in Budapest.

We pretty used all of our gears, and more things we used for the first time in real action, so was the DIY slider (the same as Pocket Dolly Basic), the new shoulder support, the new famous Planar 50 1.7 and some new great Rokkor prime lenses which are one of the best option for GH1. They cannot be used with Canon EOS cameras, but are great with micro 4/3.

The weather was really hot, but it was a lot of fun and great for this kind of work, also the team and the models were very lovely and absolutely professional.

Lenses used:

Carl Zeiss Flektogon 20mm F/2.8 (both 550D and GH1)
Carl Zeiss Flektogon 35mm F/2.4 (both 550D and GH1)
Carl Zeiss Pancolar 50mm F/1.8 (both 550D and GH1)
Carl Zeiss Planar 50mm F/1.7 (with 550D)

SMC Takumar 50mm F/1.4 (both 550D and GH1)
SMC Takumar 80mm F/1.9 (both 550D and GH1)

Rokkor 28mm F/2.5 (with GH1)
Rokkor 35mm F/1.8 (with GH1)
Rokkor 135mm F/2.8 (with GH1)

Canon FD 50mm F/1.4 (with GH1)

Panasonic 14-140 F/4-5.8 (with GH1)

Tamron Sp AF 28-75mm F/2.8 (with 550D)

For the shallow DOF we used ND filters and two CPL. Its effect is almost the same like the Fader ND. We needed to use the two CPL since the ordered Fader ND was not arrived yet.

The GH1 was firmware hacked with the tester13 hack 32Mb AVCHD version.

The next day we shot in a studio a very different condition. The idea was that we shot timalapse with the EX1 and do the closeups and movements with the two DSLR. I operated mostly the slider with the GH1, Marcell the 550D with shoulder support.

The native editing was made in Adobe Premiere CS5 on a 9550 Quad with nVidia GTX285 and RAID0 HDDs. This powerhouse is really a must if we want to edit fast and native H.264 video. The CC was resolved with Three Way Color Corrector, the shine effect with the Gain parameter of Luma Corrector effect and Gauss Blur animation and finally the web page recording is made with Camtasia Studio. Enjoy :)
