My first film with the Sony PMW-EX1 XDCAM EX camcorder. I have the Letus35 Extreme film lens adapter mounted on the front so that I can use my 35mm SLR prime lenses.

This video was shot at Ashland State Park in Ashland, Massachusetts this afternoon. I shot everything except for the time lapse at the end in 720p 60 frames per second. This faster frame rate gives me more flexibility in super slow motion.

I used a 50mm Nikon f1.4 prime for all the shots until the very end. The very last shot of the film was through my Vivitar 200mm f3.5 telephoto prime lens. I also zoomed the EX1 all the way in to get the tight shot of the sun as it dropped below the trees.

The time lapse at the end was shot in 720p using frame interval recording. I set the camera to take 2 frames of video for every second that went by.

I hope you enjoy this, I look forward to doing much more with the excellent camera. I edited this in Final Cut Pro and color graded with Magic Bullet Looks.
