Macro Extravaganza with marbles shot on hacked GH2

We don’t get that many GH2 videos so I thought I’d pass this one along here – it was shot with a hacked GH2

Of course you can see lots of HDSLR movies over on planet5D Cinema!

Macro Extravaganza with marbles

[tentblogger-vimeo 27574541]


Trying the new physics engine of upcoming Cinema 4DR13. Also using greyscalegorilla lightkit pro and the greyscalegorilla texture kit with the lovely beeple textures. Added some plexus lines and dots in After Effects

No, just kidding…

I wanted to try the GH2 hack. So I played around with my GH2 and did some macro shots. 1080/24p at 42Mbit. Patched with PTools 3.61D

Find out how to use the hack on my blog:​installing-gh2-hack-with-a-mac/​

Used a Canon FD 50mm 1.4 with adjustable macro ring and a cheapo c-mount 9 mm

Do not judge image quality on vimeo, it makes no sense.

It will remain as a still camera, and video features improved in a new 4/3rds, which is a far better size for video
