The KINAMO camera was the first handheld camera made in the 35mm format. It dates from 1921 and was created by the great Emmanuel Goldberg, one of the genius of Zeiss factory. It loads cassettes of 15 meters of film, about 40 seconds of footage. It was a hand crank camera, and later they add a spring motor. The great Joris Ivens used it in his early short films.

About the video:
I used a 50D ML RAW with the 12Jun GregoryOfManhattan build. The lens was a M42 Meyer Oreston 50mm. I decided to shot in this atypical canvas 1280 × 1058, in order to achieve a look similar of the silent era films. I used Adobe Camera Raw and After Effects for Color Correction, FCP7 to edit, and FilmConvert to grade it. The original looks very clean and with a LOT of detail, I think that the 50D is a hell of a camera. Hope you like it.
UPDATE: I do not know why Vimeo does not show the original aspect ratio. Please download the original. Thanks
