The EOS 5D Mark II, one of the latest offerings from Canon, is the world’s first dSLR camera to offer Full HD video recording capability. But what if you want to capture great sounding audio to accompany your great looking video? The 5D MkII records stunning video clips at a 1080p resolution with a frame rate of 30fps, but the audio is recorded with a tiny built-in mono microphone. Thankfully the camera also includes a stereo 3.5mm microphone input that will enable you to capture much better audio than that offered by the built-in mic. Shooting video on the MkII is very easy. Check out the full 5D MkII review from B&H’s own Allan Weitz for an in-depth look at the camera itself, and additional details on shooting video. With the right external microphone, recording great sound is easy too.

Rom interiors by Carlo Gianferro

Looking at the WPP winners, I came to this gallery of Rom interiors in Romania and Moldavia, by Carlo Gianferro, a italian freelance photographer based in Rome, Italy. The pictures are attractive and funny in the same time. I think these are the kitschiers interiors I’ve seen!

On Valentine's evening at Knokke, belgian coast

As the weather was sunny, I went saturday afternoon to Knokke, on the belgian coast, for a little photo session.
I was shooting long exposures of the sea after sunset when I heard some explosions. It was fireworks for Valentine’s day (or night).
