1. I just got a hold of the Manfrotto ModoSteady 585. Here is a 'first look' at this little device. May not be for everyone but I think its kinda cool. Great for someone who needs something small and may travel a fair bit.

  2. OK, I went to Bogenimageing today and the guy there showed me a little trick. I have uploaded another video with this trick.

    I think it makes the whole thing a whole lot easier. I put a 45x no name wide angle lens on the camera. But when I watched the video I saw, that I should have zoomed in a lillte bit, so that these ugly black corners wheren't there.

    I think with holding the thumb just a little against the plastic, it makes look the video much smoother. With a little more practice I will probably turn out real good.

  3. This footage was taken in The Cologne Cathedral. I used the Modosteady as an arm support, which works realy great. Paning and zooming is a lot easier with the Modosteady.

    Unfortunatly it was a cloudy and rainy day in Cologne, so the light conditions in the Cathedral weren't that great.

    Recorded in 720 60fps. The settings where most of the time "auto". When I recorded the beautiful windows I set the ISO down to 50, since in the auto setting you couldn't see any detail.

    I rendered it 1280x720 2mbps, but it looks a little chopy now. Sorry, for that.

    For some shots I used a fisheye lens.

    I love the Cathedral, it is such an awesome church. You could spend days in it and see everytime something new. You can see the new Richter window. I think it looks so beautiful. A lot of people don't like it. I do!

  4. This is the first time I tested the Modosteady in our staircase. The first part of the clip is without the Modosteady. Just me, holding the camera in my hand.

    The second part is with the Modosteady. Eventhough I have very few experience and practise yet with the Modosteady, you can see a pretty clear difference.

    I wish I could make these two clips right side by side in one screen, but I don'T know how to do that.

    I had the .45x no name wide angle lens on the cam, but this time I zoomed a little bit, so that there are hopefully no dark corners.

    Sorry, that the video is a little dark, but I guess it is because of the weird leight conditions during the day in our staircase.

    Recorded in 640x480 60fps auto

    Edited in the camera

  5. This was shot during my free time while I was in Quebec city shooting a corporate assignment.

    2008 marked Quebec's 400th anniversary, so there was lots going on. It is an incredibly beautiful place with a rich history. The people were great - I definitely plan to return.

    This video was shot hand-held on a Canon MiniDV camcorder using a Manfrotto Modosteady shoulder brace. It was great to wander around Old Quebec grabbing clips with such a small and light rig.

    The edit suite was my hotel room and a laptop. This was my first time using Vegas Pro, and I found it to be quite a nice editing package.

    Canon HV20 owners are probably wondering why I didn't shoot this in HD. It was because I wanted to use a couple of these clips in the other project where I was shooting with a pro SD camcorder. Since I was new to Vegas I didn't really have time to resize HiDef to fit the other project.

    I've shot HD on the HV20 exclusively since then...
