Pentax Parody Commercial in Japanese

I made a parody TV advertisement commercial for Pentax DSLR cameras. Why? I thought up the idea a few days ago and though it would be fun to make. Titled: “PENTAX CM もじり ペンタックス・コマーシャル” Check it out on Youtube (watch it in 720p): 冗談、けどPENTAXは素敵なカメラ物ですね。 www ビデオの日本語が悪い、ごめんなさい。 This is a parody video “CM” commercial with Pentax as the subject. My initial idea was a lot more involved, but this idea came after … Continue reading

Pentax DSLR Movie Video Setting Techniques

In my efforts to improve the quality of my convention videos, I have spent time working through the settings of my DSLR cameras to get the best quality out of them as possible. I went over some settings in my previous article, but I thought only settings themselves were worth spending more time on. These techniques and settings apply to the K-5 and most likely the K-7 cameras. Overview on … Continue reading

Improvements to my convention videos, a process…

I’m always looking for ways to improve my work. That goes for pretty much anything I do, but lately it is convention videos that needed more improvement. At Kollision Con I took 57 clips that I plan on making a Youtube video out of as seen in my previous post. EDIT: here is the resulting video… Youtube compilation video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5-21DA3E1eM Keep in mind that I use Ubuntu (Kubuntu variant) and … Continue reading

Kollision Con 2011 photos and video online

I went to a local convention called Kollision Con on Saturday for a few hours. Here are the results of my effort. Youtube compilation video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5-21DA3E1eM I’ll be talking later about how that video was done. I set out to improve from my previous videos and I think I accomplished that. This time I ended up spending some money on the music along with more general effort on getting better … Continue reading

Youtube channel past 20,000 views.

My Youtube channel started in January 29 just went past 20,000 total views from 45 videos. It isn’t much compared to some channels I’ve seen on there, but it’s a decent start! That’s around 2000 views per month. http://www.youtube.com/user/photographybanzai Most of the videos are basic photography product overviews, but I also have a few convention videos that I compile from clips I take. I’m looking forward to making more videos. … Continue reading

Zenfolio now hosts video.

As a zenfolio user, I receive email updates about new features they offer. Just recently they sent an email saying my account can now host video. The main reason I use their service is even though I know how to do programming, I wanted to have a gallery that looked great and was easy to use without much effort. I liked their interface a lot more than other offerings so … Continue reading

Second SD and Micro SD card Speed Testing Article

The latest speed testing article (October 2017) is here. The first article on the speed of the SD cards I wrote was pretty successful. I get quite a bit of traffic from that, so I think people probably find it useful. The issue with writing follow up articles is that I’m limited to what I have on hand to test with (if you have contacts to acquire test cards let … Continue reading

More Pentax Q Camera Talk

Now that the Pentax Q has started shipping, there is a lot more information available. I mentioned the Q back in June and I think a lot of what I said is still valid. I’m personally still on the middle road with the Q. I see positive aspects, but at the current price and lacking a few Pentax features (WR for example) it isn’t something I would be willing to … Continue reading
