One of my favourite parts of my job is testing DSLR cameras. Many of the new models this year are adding HD video recording, which is interesting – and which requires me to shoot loads of test video clips to accompany all the sample photos. Here’s my trip to work, shot in high-def as a test on the new Nikon D5000 – click the HD button to enable maximum pixelocity.
As per Si’s note, the video below is very flickery so anyone with epilepsy, or who simply dislikes flickery things, should probably beware. A test taken with the Casio EX-F1, which shoots video at 300fps or full-resolution photos at 60fps. The plan now is to film Hunter or Ralph jumping – it needs lots of light at this speed, though.
