A lot shorter than, and not as entertaining as the first Cardboard Warfare… but still pretty decent.

Pretty awesome work for some young kids.

The camera they used is the Canon T2i Digital SLR that I have been wanting for a long time.

I have to laugh when people say “Why buy a Digital SLR for video… why not buy a video camera?”… Yea well great idea except for the fact there are no video cameras out there for anywhere near $1000 that can interchange professional lenses and provide the same quality of video.  Sure there are some short comings, but you can’t beat the price.

The same camera is used by youtuber freddiew whose gun related videos I posted about HERE and HERE

My sister graduated from [OPSEC] with a Masters degree in [OPSEC] a few days ago, so I missed this… but it has since shown up everywhere:

Someone explain the point of it to me.

  • Is it for people that have dropped the money on an SLR, only to use auto focus to take quick inaccurate shots?
  • What distance do you zero the sight for?

People that think they have a use for something like this should probably also put an arrow on their camera that says “point this way” on it, so they don’t accidentally pick it up backwards and take a self portrait instead that hummingbird on the flower they were trying to get.

I am not going to give this product the dignity of a link to its purchase page, but if you have any self respect you will not google it anyway, and decide to purchase it for $45.

I’m waiting for a picture down the road where someone mounts a high powered scope on that adapter instead for some LOLz.

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.
