Overthrown @ Bay Beats 2013

Overthrown - Front man Racthmad Zainal

Overthrown – Front man Racthmad Zainal

I really don’t know how to start this article but all I can say is that Overthrown is one of the best hardcore bands of this era not just in Southeast Asia but globally. I’m always a big fan of New York Hardcore (NYHC) and always looking for the traditional sound of it. Look no further ’cause OT is very true to the sound, the message and idealism behind what HC is all about. They truly are “hardcore” figuratively speaking. If you grew up listening to Agnostic Front, Madball, Strife, Earth Crisis, Terror, Hatebreed and SickOf It All you would definitely like OT they’re kinda mix of those influences.  Continue reading

Two Minute Pancake

A boring Sunday afternoon just woke up from a nap and suddenly and urge to make a pancake video? What’s up with that? Maybe just a good opportunity to try my new Kamerar Slider and Dolly (2-in-1) before trying it on something more serious. It’s a good buy for what it can do. Build quality is superb something you wont expect from a China-made product but I can say this is an exception. Kamerar is an American brand (known for video rigs and equipment)  but to make cost a bit lower China is the best way to go and I’m glad they do. Hope you enjoy the short film. Try it on 1080p HD. Cheers!

Novoflex – A Wonder Adapter with Video Test

Mama & Kae

Mama & Kae

Last time we went to the Zoo Kae is still very small and she did’t actually appreciate the animals there but now she knows almost all the names of the animals well at least all the characters of MADAGASCAR.

It was also an opportunity to put my manual focusing skills to the test. My Nikon D700 batteries where drained from my last interior photography shoot (very irresponsible of me) so I brought along my Canon 60D with my Nikon 24-70mm f2.8G lens and a Novoflex Nikkor G lens to Canon EOS mount adapter (whew that’s long).

Don’t Just Dream – Do Something About It

This film serves as a brief rider profile of BMX flatland rider Renz Viaje from Philippines. This was made prior to the FlatDev 2012 BMX competition held at Melacca Malaysia on 7-9 of July 2012. This is my 2nd take on film making. I was choosing between a Nikon D5100, D7000 and Canon 60D and 650D, I end up buying the Canon 60D. I don’t want to invest to other lenses anymore so I decided to get an adapter  for my Nikkor lenses which is another problem because they are all G type lenses. I sold all my Nikkor D lenses when I shifted to a full-frame body (Nikon D700). Since auto-focus is not that precise on DSLR video making I’d rather use an adapter to cater all my Nikkor lenses. I research and research and research again in the web until I end up seeing the “Novoflex” German made lens adapter for Nikkor G lenses to EOS mount. This adapter works in wonders but a bit pricey for a small piece of metal maybe it’s because of German precision (wink) but one thing is for sure it’s worth every penny. I might do a brief review about this adapter on my next post, for now enjoy the short video.
