Made by Magpul fanboys obviously. If Magpul didn’t make good products I would make fun of these guys, but since they do I’d have to say it’s perfectly acceptable to buy as much Magpul as you want.

Although you can’t see the targets in the video, the guys in it definitely seem to be pretty good and familiar with their weapons. Not surprising when in the youtube comments the uploader “glin1216” says that a majority of them in the video are Military and they attended classes occasionally.

As far as the camera they used, the description says “Shot with a Canon 5DMKII + 70-200 f/2.8 IS L”, which for video is quite similar to the Canon 7D or T2i that I perpetually lust over on this blog.

You gotta love the choice of song too.

From the description:

shot this with a Casio EX-F1 of my shooting my Browning 12 Gauge shotgun. The clips that are at the 4:5 aspect ratio were taken at 300fps. The other clips were filmed at 600fps. All of the footage is raw, no color grading/image adjustment was added. Sadly, the sun was on the left side of the gun, so everything on the right side is in shadow. I couldn’t turn my gun around and shoot the other way though.

Some of my thoughts on Digital SLRs:

The picture on the right, is of the camera that was used to take the footage.  Pretty interesting how it is a Digital SLR and not a conventional video camera.

From some recent “behind the scenes” footage I have seen, it seems that a lot of music videos are now being filmed with digital SLRs.  They offer manual focus, a plethora of manual adjustment, and high resolution, for much cheaper then you could get a conventional video camera with comparable features.  It even comes with a beautiful lens compared to most lenses you would get with video cameras in the same price range.

Check out the Casio Exilim EX-F1 at Amazon – HERE

At about 1/2 the price of the Canon 7D I am obsessed with someday getting, the Casio EX-F1 is likely a good value.
