Thanks goes to Jason Tanaka of JayTPhotos.com for covering for me at 2Fast‘s track day yesterday on super short notice. I had to leave town due to a family emergency and, unfortunately, had to miss the track day. From what I hear, besides some injuries, it was a great day to be out doing laps. I should have all the photos processed and uploaded by early next week, and you’ll find them here.
On a different matter, being out of town has given me a little break from the daily routine and I got the chance to finish up another video experiment that I’ve been wanting to do: slow motion! A couple weeks ago, Orhun, of TurkPhotos.com had a little birthday outing, and I brought the 1D MkIV with me to see what 60fps would look like. It confirmed my thoughts that I’m not all that fond of video that’s displayed faster than 24fps. I just like that film look too much. The faster the frame rate, the more a clip has that home-video look.
So with all that fast frame rate footage of the evening’s shenanigans, I converted it all from 60fps to 24fps – and the slow motion effect was more dramatic than I thought – and cool! Check it out below.
