First make sure HD is on! Spent 5.5 months in New Zealand from December 2011 till June 2012 on a working holiday visa. Some of the best times ever! Traveled South and North Island, here are the highlights. Went to Christchurch-Akaroa-Arthur's Pass National Park-Greymouth-Hokitika-Franz Josef-Queenstown-Te Anau-Milford Sound-Wellington-Auckland-Rotorua and lots of other places in between. Picked stone fruit at Little River, Akaroa, worked in a vineyard on Waiheke and shot a short film, one corporate video, a competition promo and this! I accidentally formatted a card with awesome shots of hiking the Franz Josef Glacier and walking around the amazingly scenic Arthur's Pass National Park. Damn it!
Shot everything on a Canon 550D hacked with Magic Lantern and a Tamron 17-50 f/2.8 Non-VC lens. They should get an award for that hack. Made the bit rate adjustable which was great for travelling since space was an issue, had focus peaking, slow shutter which went down to 1/4 of a second. Bloody amazing hack. magiclantern.fm/ Support em!
