1 Clip is Bananas, B-A-N-A-N-A-S

I was finally able to pull out my A/C adapter for my T2i and put together a setup to capture a very long-form time lapse.  After blacking out a room in my basement, I set up a very simple shot and employed a F&V R-300 LED ring light around my DSLR.  The light and the camera were plugged in and the Canon was programmed to utilize the intervalometer in the Magic Lantern firmware.  I was VERY happy with the consistent output of the light.  No flicker whatsoever.  This video was shot over 8 days.  Each frame is 15 minutes apart.  The hardest part was not having my camera at my side during my day to day routine.

3 Clips for a Fan

I tend to browse Twitter daily, reading news from the stock footage world.  The other day, I came across a Twitter user who was coming up with nothing when looking for free stock footage of an electric fan.  Since I am always looking for my next clip idea, I replied to his tweet to see if there was anything specific he was looking for.  Fortunately the type of fan he was looking for was similar to an old one I had in my basement at home.  That night I captured some shots to offer online.

These clips were shot at 240 frames per second.  I wanted to reduce the motion blur on the spinning blades, knowing the footage can be easily sped up. The opposite, not so much.  Once again I've included some different shots to hopefully help in editing.

2 Clips Chip in the Dough

I've always wanted to put up some cooking clips, and a roll of cookie dough caught my eye while I was shopping the other day.  What started as capturing some footage on a whim, turned into a pretty neat comparison between my 2 cameras.

The clip titled "Baking Cookies" was shot at 1fps at 1920x1080 with a shutter speed of 1/2 on my Sony NEX FS-700.  The beautiful part of this process was a clip that was ready to upload the minute I was finished.  The clip titled "Baking Cookies Alt Angle" was shot using my Canon T2i with the Magic Lantern Firmware hack using the intervalometer feature at 1 image per second RAW (5184x3456).  The clip was processed through After Effects and the resulting 1920x1080 clip was created "full sized" (cropped instead of resized) so what you see an 1:1 pixel display.

I'd say the little Canon keeps up pretty well doesn't it?

Another beneficial side effect of this footage, was that the resulting cookies were a good way to thank my wife for taking over the kitchen for the night.
