    that was lame. talk about wrong tool for the job. they could of done some cool stuff with all those cameras, instead there was mainly a bunch of poorly done matrix shots towards the end. maybe some one should of told therm there are all sorts of made for the job LED video wall elements that would of worked just as well w/o the hassle.

      – My thought exactly. Why use all those cameras just to do an LED nightclub trick? There were some frozen/bullet time shots but even those weren’t very well executed:(

    Yeah, this video didn’t seem to have much to do with the 60D other than being an expensive flash holder. Once you have the programming down, you can use the control voltage to fire anything in a sequence. I think they mounted the flashes to 60Ds so they could be featured in blogs like this.

    Well so many cameras and flashes just for using the light source? Hmmm? Don’t know if post or a Led wall as pointed by Steve wouldn’t do the job much easier.

    I was not expecting a light show, I was expecting to see what the 60D’s were capturing while firing in those light sequences. They only needed the flash units not the camera bodies for what they did. Seems like an lot of wasted time and energy and resources to put on a light show.

    For all comments above, when your in a band, Sponsorships hand out the most amount of money in the shortest amount of time. Obviously, this is why the had all those Canon DSLR’s. $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$
