I watched the movie “1917” the other day, and it sure was impressive. The long one takes reminded me of the stuff I tried (horribly) to do back in the early 2010’s. Hard to believe that was 10 years ago. At the time, there were no small electronic gimbals that could stabilize a phone. No, […]
Hi everyone! I bought one of the cameras I dreamed about way back in the day…for only $18!! These days folks make fun of you for having even a 3 year old phone, so it was a nice challenge to use a digital camera from 2002! Here are some of the pictures I got with […]
Yes, I think so! The first BMPCC is a camera I use for BTS shots due to the no record limit and ease of grading the Pro Res. The new Black Magic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K was announced on 4-9-2018 with an anticipated ship date of this September (let’s hope!) but I still like the […]
Testing the ISCO 2X Anamorphic on the BlackMagic Pocket Cinema Camera
Just some looping h.264 .mp4 videos mimicking as animated .gifs.
More examples from random videos clips shot with the PCC, and the resulting 2 MP still photos that can be exported from Da Vinci Resolve.
Notes: Atlanta History Center, Swan House, Oakland Cemetery, Little Five Points Bonus: Fake Korean Video 😉

Mini Review of the BMPCC: a superb video/cinema camera with the power to shoot Cinema DNG raws or simply take frame grabs from the video files–which rival most dedicated DSLR’s.
Vietnamese American Community of Georgia New Year and 20th Anniversary Celebration | Miss Vietnamese Georgia | Wild Bill’s, Duluth, GA | February 2, 2014
Part of a Diwali celebration at the Coca-Cola HQ in Atlanta. Had the pleasure of meeting such a talent.
So the latest rig I assembled is a D600 mounted to a JuicedLink pre amp, providing phantom power to a Shure SM58A Beta, which in turn feeds a very clean audio signal back to the camera.
Revisiting one of the many 50mm lenses I used to own.
In cinema, the protagonist (or villain) usually watches movies on old film projectors, with only the flickering of the machine as the soundtrack. Nothing that artsy for me, just watching my random video clips on the PS3 or phone. With cinegraphs joining animated gifs in the looping visual eye candy, it’s not so bad losing the audio in most of my video files. It’s not like on camera audio is any good anyway…

Tech Notes: Thanks to Van and Anister for helping, and of course Vy for playing. :0) These are some random video clips of me practicing with the DIY slider. I’m going to stop using the word “tests” for certain gear related things, because these are basically the times when I practice with my various tools. […]
Custom Built “DIY” Slider for video.
7th Annual Together Empowering Asian Americans Walk, Organized by CPACS and featuring the diverse community in Metro Atlanta.
Notes: Just random clips thrown together, 5D mk II and D90, mostly handheld, and of course manual focus on everything. One could see the advantages of the little “HD” cameras out there with their extreme depth of focus (i.e. every unnecessary thing in focus), but I still like the messups and the old 16mm look. Song is […]
Notes: Been a while since I posted anything Lao related…as you all know by now, I started off as the typical Lao kid holding the sign with his name in the refugee camp, was lucky enough to resettle in the good ol’ U S and A, grew up with two cultures, studied art, went back in time to right the […]
