A last minute video shot for Trinity Home and Investment

I too would like to add my praise for this...VERY well done!!

May I ask what lenses you were using? I've seen you post what glides, lights..etc...but am curious as to what lenses you used with this shot.

I would be interested in trying something like this in my area of the US too...

TIA,

cayenne

Thank you very much =-) It's always encouraging to hear good things about your work.

5D mkIII with Bower 14mm f/2.8:
 - photos
 - basic pans
 - glidecam

5D mkIII with 24-105mm f/4L: - somewhere between 35 and 50mm
 - Host Shots

My partner was on the konova slider with 60D and tokina 11-16mm f/2.8
we also had a 2nd angle of the host that was the 60D and Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 OS for a tight shot but decided it didn't fit.

Thank you for the reply.

I'm new to the DSLR game myself, just got a 5D3. I'm looking to get some wide angle lenses. I'm still trying to figure out how to rate, or discern what non canon lenses are good to get.

I'd not heard of the Bower till you mentioned it, looked it up on amazon.com, but not much info there and no ratings.

How would you rate this lens on the Canon?  Will it auto focus or strictly manual? The price certainly is right!! How would this rank vs the canon 14mm do you think?

Again, thank you for the replies and info!!

Never used the canon 14 before but I love the bower. It's totally manual. It's very sharp for its price. You can also find it on b&h. There may be some reviews there

Hi,

Noticed that you are looking to purchase the Canon 5D Mark III, and just want to clarify that the price of £2,469.99 (current), which is all inclusive and shipping is free. With that said,  you can now have a higher budget for the lenses. :D

You guys rock

Lovely video - very well executed

Yes, I too have looked into the RE side of shooting both video and stills, and boy... most real estate agents are just flat out CHEAP...  Seems to me, if you can get in good with very high-end agents, who deal exclusively in very swanky properties, you might be able to make a go of it.  Otherwise you'll find yourself competing against bargain basement shooters practically giving away their time, or trying to sell your higher-end services to agents who just don't see the value in it.  "My listings have been selling just fine with these crappy shots I take on my camera from Target"

It's too bad, really... because great pictures (and great video) could really help convince a buyer that THAT is the house of their dreams

Good points. And thank you =-) I've been very lucky. I've worked only with two guys who are closely related in the RE world and neither one has been cheap about the photography and video cost. It's nice to be working with guys that understand the value of tho work.

I would go

24mm f/1.4 II
50mm f/1.2
70-200 f/2.8 IS II - 4 stops of IS help a lot in the dark.

Not to pry, but I will - did it pay enough for it to be worth your time and a good project?  I've always been a little worried to get involved with real estate agents - seems like they would never pay well and be difficult.

I've come across this recently as well. A client has asked me to do a community video and I refuse to sell myself short. I was told realtors can't afford that price but he's adamant on wanting me to do it. Unfortunately it's not a two way street for his expected budget.

This is easy to run into.. I've found it pretty easy to work around by only approaching real estate guys that don't seem quite as cheap.

I really do like the idea of getting a TSE for RE. I just don't have the income from RE yet to justify the lens. At the moment its the only place i'd be using it. I'd probably get the 17mm

It would have been worth it if i was a bit more efficient with my time for the day. Also i had to work around a couple things since the 5d mkiii raw ins't supported on my version on photomatics and the 7.1 camera update hadn't come out for photoshop. now the editing would be much quicker. Made $300 for photography and $300 for video.

The easiest way to keep your verticals straight is to keep your camera level.  I use tilt shifts (TS-E 17, TS-E 24 II, and TS-E 90) in order to then frame appropriately.
Thanks!

thank you! I've done that with the windows before and this was just a super quick turn around job video and photo so i decided not too. But what do you do to keep your vertical straight? i want to get up higher then tilt down to see over things but of course then the verticals are off. do you use t/s lenses? Nice shots btw

And i used PP cs6 just to experiment with it and see how the new one compares to fcp 7/x. Used Magic Bullet Looks for grading
