Hi Pentaxian friends.

For those who didn't have a chance to attend, you missed a very good presentation. Jasper is a very nice guy and what I learned about video with the K-7 was really informative. It would take many months of practice on your own before discovering the "tricks of the trades" that Jasper showed us. Today's DSLRs are equipped with great video capabilities and not to use that is missing the boat. In technology, you either stay with it or you're left behind, and we all know how fast technology is advancing. What a great era we live in.

It's amazing what you can do with the DSLRs with video capabilities. First of all, because of their smaller size, when compared to professional video film making equipment, you can place the DSLRs in locations not possible with pro-videocams. Because the lenses are interchangeable and the sensors of DSLRs are bigger than videocams,  you have mouh more lattitude with the depth of field. There are a lot of advantage in shooting videos with DLRs, but instead of expanding this post at this time, Jasper has accepted my interview invitation. In the coming weeks, I will conduct an interview with Jasper about the advantages of using DSLRs for short films, and how he used the K-7 in the making of Uncle Jack and the actual short movie Uncle Jack. The presentation at Samy's Santa Ana was a success, The room was full and chairs had to be brought in as there wasn't enough stations.

If you have any reasonable questions you would like me to include in this interview, add them to the comments section of this blog.

Thank you for reading,

Yvon Bourque
