Who is Nino Leitner?
View one of Nino's videos we highlighted on planet5D cinema
One of his major works is the feature-length documentary “Every Step You Take” (A/E/UK 2007) that exposed the weird inner workings of the massive video surveillance / CCTV schemes covering every corner of the UK. It gained quite some media attention, was featured at film festivals around the globe and won several awards. Nino currently has a new feature documentary in early development.
In February 2009, Nino got the rare chance to test the then-upcoming Canon EOS 550D (or Rebel T2i, as it is called in the US) extensively before any other filmmakers around the world could get it into their hands. He shot the test short “FEBRUARY”, which has been watched almost 250,000 times so far, converting uncountable doubters to 550D owners. He started his blog at the same time, propelling it to the top of the league immediately. Since then, he has focused on gear reviews for DSLR filmmakers, which made the blog to one of the most trusted sources for DSLR filmmakers.
