Adam Boozer is an amazingly talented videographer in Charleston, SC. His company Jewell and Ginnie has been making a big splash with very cinematic video here in the low country and throughout the southeast. Last night Adam emailed FS a BTS video he created on how he sets up his camera for these incredible aerial shots. Besides having the access to a Robinson R44 Helicopter, the actual setup isn’t that complicated: A Canon 5D MKII, a Zacuto Follow Focus, a Marshall Monitor, and the piece that stabilizes it all together, the Tyler Mini Gyro. I’ve posted the highlight reel here so click the full post to see the BTS video on how Adam is getting these shots!
Lee Morris and I decided it would be fun to feature a professional snowboard photographer on the front page of fstoppers. So we packed up all the cameras and headed out to Frisco, Colorado to see what our friend Dave Lehl could do to shed light on the amazing world of snowboard photography. I had no idea what we were about to get ourselves into when Dave told us he was shooting some professional snowboarders in the back country of Vail Pass and we should tag along to document it all. If you’ve ever found yourself wondering what goes on during a snowboard photoshoot or just enjoy the sport, check out our profile video on Dave Lehl and be prepared to be amazed!

This is very interesting… HDR for video!
This video highlights several clips we’ve made using our new High Dynamic Range (HDR) process. Video is captured on two Canon 5D mark II DSLRs, each capturing the exact same subject via a beam splitter. The cameras are configured so that they record different exposure values, e.g., one camera is overexposed, the other underexposed. After the footage has been recorded, we use a variety of HDR processing tools to combine the video from the two cameras, yielding the clips you see above.
HDR Video provides filmmakers with many exciting new opportunities. Not only can HDR video create interesting effects, it can also allow for even exposure where artificial lighting is unavailable or impractical. For example, when a subject is backlit, one camera could be set to properly expose the subject, the other the sky, resulting in video with perfect exposure throughout.
We will continue to develop and improve the HDR video process for better results and efficiency. For more information, check out our website sovietmontage.com.

The handle attaches to a quick release plate to which we occasionally mount a gyro stabilizer. This solution works very well and no longer requires the operator to touch the camera to trigger video recording. Instead, just a small thumb press and the camera blinks to life.
This was built specifically for a Canon T2i, but would also work with a 7D and 5Dmk2. Total parts cost about $10.
