Vintage Film For Looks is Now Only $69

October 21, 2011 - By 

Yep, if you have ever thought about ever getting my Vintage film for Looks, now is the time. It’s now only $69 down from it’s original price of $99. What’s more, you can now get ALL 17 of the guru presets from Red Giant for only $499. This includes Vintage Film For Looks and tons of other hand made presets, templates, looks, and training from industry-leading designers with decades of experience.

We are talking about really REAL designers here. Not just a nerd with a blog like me. Great artists like Harry Frank, Stu Maschwitz and Nando Costa have Packs that are included in the Guru Bundle.

What is Nick Campbell’s Vintage Film For Looks?
Red Giant asked me to create a set of looks for their Magic Bullet Looks, Quick looks and Photo looks. I have been creating different color corrected looks for photos, video and iphone apps for years, than they thought it may be a good idea to share all of those looks with you with a full set of presets that you could use in your projects. So, I did. Now, I use it all the time. Here are a few videos of it in action.

Where is Nikon’s answer to the Canon 7D?

September 25, 2009 - By 

I came across this wonderful short over at Prolost that was shot with the new Canon 7D. It got me wondering, Where is Nikon’s version of a camera that shoots 1080P? Full frame and a mic input would be nice too.

They are starting to try out video with the new D5000 and the D90, but those don’t shoot 1080P and have very limited video and audio capabilities (11 kHz, Mono? come on!). Seems like Canon realized that video on a DSLR isn’t just a gimmick. When will Nikon do the same?
