Here’s another crack at promoting Reno to hopeless Bay Area drones.
I made this using a Canon 30D, set to high quality small jpgs and high speed burst. On this setting, you can shoot five frames a second for up to 110 shots. That’s about 22 seconds straight of 5 fps shooting, so you can get a great sequence out of it. I edited it in Final Cut Express, set to HDV 1080i 60 so the quality on the original is slick. Watch in in high quality on YouTube and it’ll look much better, to the point that you might be able to tell these are photos instead of strobed video.
By the way, it’s still not as cool as Ed’s video, but it does have its own doofus acting out the role we laugh at.
