Shooting some office footage today, inserts for a short film. The skies are perfect for it with the clouds and rain, so it was pretty much destined. The fun part was coming in to find Chuck the photographer here with his equipment that looks a whole lot like a film shoot going on.

Kinda looks like some behind-the scenes photos, which is fun.

Interesting Darthcam notes: usually with a zoom lens, you zoom in and focus, then zoom out and you are still in focus on the subject. That's very much not the case with Darthcam.
Also the close-focus ability only really works on the wide angle setting. The more you are zoomed in, the farther you have to be from the lens to actually focus. It's an irritant, but a livable one.

And Red Digital Cinema has a new offering coming up that looks extremely attractive: The Scarlet.

It doesn't exist in production yet, but I'm not buying a new camera yet either.

Of course, if I win the lottery between now and then, this little baby could become my bestest buddy. Add a set of prime lenses and some accessories, and you're set.
