Monster Pond Hockey and Radar Runs held the weekend of February 11 2012 on Lake Nipissing.
This is the first real test I have done for video on the 5d2. The first thing I learnt is I really need to get some brand a variable ND filter and I'm open to suggestions. Hoping to get one that is good quality but wont break the bank. I had to shoot most of this at f22 to keep anywhere near 1/60 shutter speed. This is all sooc footage. I didn't color correct or edit the audio. I did set a custom white balance.
It was a cold weekend on the lake. Keeping warm should almost be listed as winter gear (many layers of clothes).. It was -35c most of the weekend and I was out with a few people from my camera club a few hours each day. Frozen fingers become a problem and your battery does not last as long in the cold. Although I was impressed that the 2 batteries in the grip lasted the weekend at those temps. Winter also means all that white snow fools your sensor so you need to be aware of it and compensate by 1/3- 11/2 stops
I'm looking forward to spring and some color to get out and start shooting some new video. Is everyone still using the rode vid mic or is there a better mic to use with the 5d2?. This is another accessory I need to get at some point.

What started off as a creative video birth announcement for my daughter, has blossomed into a annual birthday tradition. Each year I select one of my favorite movies released the previous year and use it as inspiration for my video.
This year's video was inspired by "Like Crazy."

Hey guys long time no see. I finally got a 5D Mark II +24-105L. I have been working on my photography and just built a new website. Looking forward to a great 2012 and hoping to be back on Vimeo more now that I have a camera that will shoot video as well as stills. It was just to much of a pain to drag out both cameras.
I am really excited to start playing with it and seeing what it can do.
Short film made by just 2 fools, Gabriel Covacich (me) and Mario Orman on a non-existing budget during the last year (from august 2010 to august 2011). Entirely shooted and produced in my little studio in Trieste (Italy). Original story is from mr.Orman who did also the script and storyboard, I did everything else including acting and music. More details on the credits in the video.
The only italian short selected for the European Fantastic Short @ SCIENCE + FICTION Festival.
Hope you enjoy, feel free to leave a comment!
