Camera:Canon EOS 20D

Good Evening,

This evening I shot a short clip to be used in a future project that I will post on here when I complete it. For this shot I wanted to get a glidetrack feel without building anything too complex so I decided to try using O scale toy train cars on track. This worked out fairly well, though, since my track was not as smooth as it could have been, image stabilization in AE will be required.

Nothing fancy on this shot, hand-held, available light, and minimal processing. The only different element to this shot is the use of my brother’s 20D, since both of my cameras were tied up. While I love my 40D and 7D, and while the 20D is an inferior camera by comparison, I am still fond of this venerable camera which is really the grandfather of the prosumer DSLR.

God Bless,
