The long awaited release of 24/25P firmware for the 5D2 enchanted me of shooting videos with it. So for the idea of an initial video project, I formed a thought that if I start my journey from sunrise and end it at sunset on an ordinary day, what actions, events and activity my eyes gonna witness in this bracket of approx 12-14 hours. So that is what I simply tried to implement in this short film.

It has been an enthralling experience shooting video with an HDSLR at various ISO's and with various lenses. I came across strengths and weaknesses of it. The track/dolly that I made was bit wobbly but it did the job for me. I plan to refine it and improve its consistency or buy the branded one from abroad. I also plan on adding a rig with follow focus in the future video works for precise manual focusing.

It has been entirely filmed on the Canon 5D Mark II @ 25P with firmware 2.0.4 in Lahore, Pakistan. Edited and color graded on Sony Vegas.

All the Time-lapses have been shot on the Canon 40D with either Sigma 10-20mm or the Canon 24-105mm lenses.

Lenses used for filming:
EF 24-105mm F4L IS (used extensively due to its versatility and IS)
EF 85mm F1.8
EF 50mm F1.8
Sigma 70mm F2.8 Macro (delivered best IQ across the frame with vivid colors and nice bokeh)

Camera support:
DIY Track/dolly with a 486RC2 ball head (will share its photo and making in coming days)
Glidecam 2000 PRO
Manfrotto 190X Pro B with 700RC head.
Manfrotto Friction Magic Arm + Manfrotto Suction cup (for the car scene)

Music by: Mars Lasar
Good speakers or headphones recommended due to tad louder audio levels.

The behind the scenes with technical information will follow soon.

Lovely flow created with the use of the dolly. I enjoyed those low angles - made it a bit more special.
Fine piece of documentary work!

Well if I remember correctly, Only DivX was endorsed by dA at that time. A crappy codec IMO hence I had to mention Vimeo link for a better h264 option.

I am interested whether the subjects in the film were unaware of the shooting or did you ask them to ignore your activity, since they seem to be oblivious to the camera.

It seemed as if West was more comfortable, but had lost something precious... some piece of natural magic. Living in the US, I agree. Although proud to be an American, I do see people seek that magic that is lost here.
