Homemade Music Video – on the Canon EOS 5D Mark II of course!

We found this on vimeo this afternoon… pretty darn cute what you can do with the Canon EOS 5D Mark II eh?


Riley sings “Don't Stop Believing” from Ronnie Silos on Vimeo.

For father's day weekend, I had a choice of what to do. So I said, I want to do a fun music video with my son Riley who just turned 8 recently. I wanted to play with my Canon 5D which just came out with a new firmware upgrade for manual video setting. I also wanted to play with my “Do it yourself” gadgets like the “zazaSlider” which is a rail system to slide my camera like a dolly shot (see picture on this page). Thanks to zazaCast of dvxuser.com for the instructions on how to make one. Well, here's what we came up with with the help of a couple of friends and Riley's cousin. We shot for a couple of hours in downtown Filmore, California.

  1. Whoa! Surprisingly great job, both video and performance! Riley can really sing and Dad can really shoot & edit. Bravo!
