VIDEO NOISE

The ISO setting on a camera modifies the light sensitivity of the camera processor (the chip that captures the image). A high ISO setting brightens your image at the cost of increasing the ‘noise’ in the image. In stills photography this can be a deliberate, stylistic choice, adding a ‘grainy’ look to your images. In video, the noise moves as well and can render your footage poorly. Thanks to Gavin Ko for sending us this demonstration of the ISO settings effect on video shot on the Canon 60D DSLR camera.

LENS DISTORTION

Remember the rule: wide angle lens equals more distortion and exaggerated perspective. Longer, zoom like lens equals less distortion and a flattening of perspective. Here is a nice example illustrating the principle on a persons face. Thanks Stephen Eastwood for his work on this at Gizmodo Australia.

SKATEBOARD STOP-FRAME

Clif Mitchell, semester 3 (Miller) found this nice stop frame piece. Photo sequences cut from magazines. I especially like the rough-edged quality.
