Gary Yost on shooting infrared music video underwater with a Nikon D200 and D5200 IR converted cameras

Pin It

In this guest posts Gary Yost (www.garyyost.com) will share his experience on shooting infrared music video underwater with a Nikon D200 and D5200 IR converted cameras. See also his previous posts on the "Hawaiian Tree Bones” infrared time-lapse and the Full Moon Pacific Blanket time-lapse videos.

The SF-based band Yassou Benedict came to me in June of 2014 and asked me to help them make a music video for a new song that needed strong visuals. I hadn’t heard the song yet, but co-founder Lilie Bytheway-Hoy was clear about wanting a unique visual style for the piece. “Unique” in the music video field is a tall order, but I already had a converted D200 from a few years back and I’d been experimenting with a recently IR-converted Nikon D5200 for a time-lapse project that I wanted to accomplish that summer in Hawaii. So I suggested that we do some tests. We got together at my house and took the camera and a slider into my backyard to see what we could do.

Nikon D750 firmware update C:1.02 released

Pin It

Nikon-D750-camera
Nikon released new firmware update C:1.02 for the D750 DSLR camera. The only change mentioned by Nikon is "camera operation is now more reliable", so it is not very clear what exactly was fixed.

There is also a new firmware v1.1 for the Nikon Coolpix P610 camera.

Update: it seems that this firmware update improved the D750 preview and info buttons speed/response time.
