Record Video – Canon 40D/450D…

While I was looking for a tutorial to fix my Canon 450D shutter speed and to adjust it, I found this project!

Here is the thing. You can record video on your EOS Camera, only if you have “LiveView” feature on your EOS camera.

This project is called “EOS Camera Movie Record“.

Simply, plug your camera to your Laptop/PC, start the software and start recording!

This software writes short movies with your digital DSLR camera Canon (R) directly to computer. The camera must have LiveView feature to work, like in Canon EOS 450D for example. The Program has preview, Av, Tv and WB control.

To Download and to read more about this software: Visit the project website

Enjoy :-)

Project: Pinhole Digital Camera!

Today I thought of making a Pinhole Digital Camera; it is a good experience to gain more knowledge.

First of all, here are the photos of the Pinhole I created, using the top cap of Pirouline (created the hole using a needle):

Samples taken by the Pinhole Lens:

So sad it is hard to adjust the focus with a Pinhole lens.

Zeiss Ikon Cocarette (Contessa-Nettel 1926) Hacked for Canon DSLR

Well.. I’ve had this Zeiss Ikon Cocarette (Contessa-Nettel 1926) folding camera for months. I took it to the darkroom 1 or 2 times, then I figured out that I can hack it to my Canon and use it as a Lens.. WOW! Results blow my mind.

I don’t need to go to the darkroom anymore! I’ve extended the life of this folding camera to the digital world ;d

It feels just great when you change a historic piece into something new.. IT IS ALIVE!!

Results:

f/6.3 – ISO 320 – 0.8 seconds

f/6.3 – ISO 160 – 1/200

f/6.3 – ISO 160 – 1/400

f/6.3 – ISO 160 – 3.2 seconds (Cropped, Trying to shoot the steam at long exposure!)

Insanely sharp! Great details.

Jailbreak your DSLR! – Testing on my Canon 60D

Yes, I did say “Jailbreak”. It is not only for iDevices! It is for all devices that limit users to specific features. By using Magic Lantern you will be able to jailbreak your DSLR camera and get more features!

One of my friends @7mdalajmi jailbroke his Canon 50D, and guess what? IT CAN RECORD FULL HD VIDEOS 1080p @ 30fps. Here is the video he recorded using his 50D:

And today I jailbroke my Canon 60D firmware 1.1.0, to enjoy the HDR VIDEO RECORDING! Oh yeah, that is a sick feature. I will try later on the HDR video recording feature and I will write a post about it. Below you’ll find photos while jailbreaking my Canon 60D + some of Magic Lantern‘s menus.

*Photos taken by my Samsung Galaxy Note.

Currently Magic Lantern is compatible with these Cameras:

Have a nice day, and enjoy your camera to the limit.

 

 

Argus 50mm f3.5 Hacked for Canon EOS

I got inspired and motivated by other Photographers who hacked their old lenses to work with the new DSLR cameras! I had three old vintage cameras:

This is the lens: (It is so clean, the aperture/focus moves smoothly.. So neat)

This is how I created the Adapter to hack the lens into the DSLR camera:

Argus 50mm f3.5 mounted to Canon 450D:

I mounted the lens to my Canon 60D and started shooting! It was really hard to adjust the aperture and the focus, since I need to adjust them manually. But the results! Man, you gotta love them! SO NEAT:

– Using f3.5, ISO 400, Shutter speed 1/20:

 

After Zooming:

 

– Using f8+, ISO 400, Shutter speed 5″:

It was a great experience :-]
