So this is just a quick post in regards to my new website cruisncanada.com
JustGoShoot has been a great place for me to play with my blogging, but my interests are moving over to my new site. This site will deal with some of the things that this site dealt with including a lot of photography and videography topics. The biggest thing though will be the inclusion of motorcycle gear, reviews, rides and whatever else that is or has anything to do with my motorcycle riding.
So I hope you come join me over there. I look forward to hearing from you all.
So my wife bought the Emerson Action Cam for me as a gift. It was cheap, and to be honest my expectations were not very high for a $40 action camera that I was going to mount on my motorcycle while riding.
So lets be quick and to the point. Is that worth the $40? To be honest thats a much harder question to answer. Take a look at the footage below. The camera when mounted to a motorcycle has a very strong and dominant wobble. And that may be somewhat due to the fact the the camera isn’t all that “wide” in what it captures. Or maybe its just because its a cheap camera. If the footage below is good enough for you then its $40 well spent. On an 8 gig card you can record up to 40 minutes and to be honest I don’t know how much more then that you could record as the internal battery seems to only be able to hold a charge for maybe a little bit longer.
Other then mounting on a motorcycle I really don’t know it would hold up to using it on lets say a bicycle, or surfing or whatever else you would throw at it. The case seems strong and the unit itself is nice and light. If you can find this camera at a store that has a return policy then that would be good so that you can test it out for whatever purpose you have in mind for this device.
As for me … Well I intend to use this camera to record whats happening behind me and to save up and by a GoPro for the front.
So there you have it. The Emerson Action Cam. My recommendation is to Try before you Buy.

So for a second time i’ve had the opportunity to work alongside the band “doll” (local band from Ottawa Ontario) and help them create a music video for one of their new tracks. So as of today it is finally finished.
So a little bit about the video…
Firstly this video was entirely shot with Canon dSLR cameras. We used both a T2i and 7D. In regards to our lens choice we used what i had available… which was a Canon 50mm f/1.8, a Canon 24-85 f/3.5-5.6, and lastly a Sigma 17-70 f/2.8-4.5. Both cameras were always hand held to give it the shaky look. We then imported it into Final Cut Pro X and did the color correcting with Red Giant’s Magic Bullet Looks plugin (we ended up having some problems but i do explain that in the video). The little girl in the video is my daughter and this was completely out of her element which makes me so proud. Pretty hard song to memorize so that she could lip sync along with the song.
Here’s the video …
Here is the video that I previously did with them (about a year or so ago). Be warned that this video has very strong language. So watch at your own discretion.
So yesturday I posted a video review of the iOS app Filmic Pro. Once of the features that I really liked was the stabilizer. Now since the video i was showing was being screen captured there was a fair bit of quality loss. So today I went and hooked my iPhone to my mount in my car. Drove around and recorded it, to see how well the stabilizer within Filmic Pro worked. Pretty good indeed. Anyways take a look and let me know what you think.
So I came across this cool app called Filmic Pro for iOS (iPhone and iPad) and I must say that it is pretty cool. If you use your iPhone or iPad to do video recording this may turn into your ‘GO TO App’. I must say that this will probably be the app that I use most for video recording on the iPhone.
So check out my video review. Hope you like.
So I may have talked a bit about the Padcaster in one of my previous posts, but at that time I wasn’t really sure of how it worked or if it would actually be something that was useful. Well if you are an iPad shooter or thought having a complete mini studio on the iPad was cool. This may be the device that you are looking for. Check it out.
Im sure most of us know of the most of the big camera manufacturers that make video cameras, and there are probably a lot of us that know of the camera manufacturers that make cameras that surpass the HD standard of 1920 X 1080. So it came as a big surprise with Blackmagic announced that they are bringing our a 2.5k camera.
