Cup Of Beach- ( D90 footage )
This was shot with a Nikon D90 at Fort Lauderdale Beach.
I had just previously shot a similar film ( also on vimeo ) called The Edge Of The World, with an HV20 and Letus Mini.
I was extremely excited and interested in seeing the same type of film done with my new Nikon. Well, it sure is clearer, brighter, more crisp, and livelier. The HV20 and Letus set up seems a lot more textured even with no color grading, which I did zero with either film. I think I like the Nikon better over-all, especially with how much more user friendly it is!!. No vignetting, or grain to worry about was an absolute step in the right direction, and it isn't that hard to control the exposure.
It was extraordinary to be able to snap of shots in the middle of recording, and the pictures it takes are phenomenal. I didn't have any problem with rolling shutter since I'm very used to working steadily with camera movements.
Finally, the sharpness at infinity and beyond is spectacular. Look at the buildings far off in some of the shots and you'll see. I could never achieve that with my HV20 letus combo. Not in a million years, and I'm just beginning to learn the Nikon!
So tell me what you think of the film, maybe you can watch the other one done with the HV20 Letus too, and I'd love to hear feedback on how you are liking your Nikon if you have one. I'm liking mine a lot.
