Danny absolutely kills it on a bicycle, and Sowerby did such a great job of capturing and putting it all together for a really exciting/visually stimulating edit. If you have reservations about trials riding, throw them out the window like Steven Hamilton in Can I Eat. -Hamilton reference, that’s right.
Sorry if this is late on the watch list, and if you have seen it, I’m sure you wont mind watching again!
You gotta check this one in at least 720HD!
Interesting? I thought it was pretty wild!
Be sure to back all the way to the left before you begin!

“Initial port of the Magic Lantern firmware to the Canon 550D / T2i camera. This version only adds on-screen audio meters, but shows that it is possible to add the film making features that users need.
Anyone else using or considering this camera should check out the Vimeo forums at some point for some good info.

Still feeling horrible from my ankle injury as well, I’ve got plenty of roaming time on the internet. This was spotted over at defgrip, and seriously stole 30 minutes of my time before I realized it. From vintage Playboy to ancient tattoo art, there should be something you can enjoy as well. It’s full of interesting photos and includes great information about them as well.
One article that grabbed my attention was called bikes-bikinis-beer & beach. It details bike week in Daytona Beach, Florida quite a few years back.
As with most good things, I think moderation is key, and “glidecam” footage is no exception. I am however, very impressed at the footage these can help produce when used correctly. I remember when I had my Canon HV30, the Hauge mini motion cam was one of the top accessories I wanted, but never bought. It often got great reviews as a budget stabilizer for the smaller HD camera. I’d even considered buying one for my HDSLR setup, but now they have made a version for HDSLR shooters in particular. The reviews are a little mixed, and there is competition mentioned in the form of the Flycam Nano. Also, check out Cheesycam’s review of the Flycam Nano. I’ve found that Cheesycam often has some great budget and often quality solutions for some DSLR video and photo accessories.
note: There are loads of other stabilizers out there, and there are surely much higher quality builds as well. This is an attempt to show some budget solutions, that don’t necessarily scream cheap equipment in the final project. Also, don’t disregard Glidecam’s offerings. At around $285,for the 2000PRO, and $330 for the HD1000, it is sort of close competition for the budget stabilizers, and it may be the top choice based on Glidecam’s proven quality.

Very impressive use of glidecam style footage-
Ever wonder how to make something like this yourself?
I’d venture to say most anyone with a digital camera has messed around with longer exposures or night shots with trailing light. If you haven’t it can be pretty entertaining to see what shapes or lines light can produce, but I’d never gave it much more thought until I stumbled upon this article on the Canon Digital Learning Center. It gives a quick run through of some interesting things you can accomplish in dark situations with flashlights, lasers, candles, or other light producing elements.
