Chase Jarvis Road Tests Video on Nikon D7000
Just this week, Nikon unveiled the new D700, a 16.2mp prosumer DSLR that can capture 1080p HD video. (See Dan Havlik’s Gear Guide report here.) It replaces the popular D90, the first DSLR with HD video capabilities.
Before the public launch, Nikon asked photographer and blogger Chase Jarvis to shoot a short film testing the video. The film isn’t out yet, but he’s posted a behind-the-scenes video about the making of the test video on his blog. He’s also posted some stills he shot with the camera.
The behind the scenes video shows how the camera , which has full-time autofocusing, shoots HD video under different lighting conditions. It also shows how through video and voiceover how Jarvis wrangles and cheerleads his models.
