Natasha Bedingfield “Touch” – a Hot Canon EOS 7D music video with a twist

by planetmitch5 Comments

Canon HDSLRs like the Canon EOS 7D (reviews) have indeed become common place on the set of music videos, but this one for Natasha Bedingfield's “Touch” has a unique twist – the Canon EOS 7D is used to film the back of an old Kodak Land camera giving a very unique view. We'll include the behind the scenes as well as Natasha Bedingfield “Touch” music video.

We contacted Hit and Run who produced the BTS and asked about the Kodak Land camera used in the video and Tyler Rumph sent us this:

“Unfortunately, the only info we have on connecting the Kodak Land camera to the 7D was what you saw in the video. The director said he modified the Kodak camera a bit so he could shout through it. He set the 7D focus on the ground glass and did all the focus-pulling on the kodak. Some places in L.A. rent the cameras ready to shoot through for this desired look. I hope this helps and please let me know if you have any questions,”

  1. i cant play the youtube video. :(

    Warnng : This video contains content from Vevo, who has blocked it in your country on copyright grounds.

    :( whats the hell of that? havent any vimeo link for Natasha Bedingfield music video ?

  2. Polaroid Corp. made “Land” cameras, named after the inventor/founder of the company, Edwin Land, Kodak sort-of made a “polaroid”-like camera in the late 1970s, early 1980s but lot the patent war to Polaroid.

    That’s a Speed Graphic camera used from the 1920s-1960s in the newspaper biz. It was made by Graphlex who was later bought by Singer, the sewing machine company…

    That effect is cool, but there are easier ways of doing that shot/technique using a light weight relay system that won’t kill your back, but give you the same look and feel.
