Video with a DSLR

Since I got my Canon 7D a few months ago, I’ve been interested to try out its video capabilities, which were one of the many improvements over the 400D I had previously.

I shot this with a 50mm f/1.8 lens and got the low angle using the Manfrotto 190XPROB tripod that I recently received. The camera was set up using the custom settings suggested by Tyler Ginter. Thanks to Scruff for being a reasonably cooperative model.

Playing with the new Facebook profile

Inspired by Alexandre Oudin, I updated my new Facebook profile page to extend my picture beyond the usual confines of the top left corner.

Now if only I could take control of my friends’ profile pictures and the adverts, I could make the picture even bigger!

Warning: This is a high maintenance profile picture. I’ve already had my eyes changed to a different colour by an intelligent friend.
