2 Clips Are Not Exactly Fast and Not Really Furious

I get excited every time I get another idea on what to shoot and offer.  I love using my Sigma lens because of it's macro ability and fast exposure.  Sure there are Canon lenses that have this similar ability, unfortunately I don't have those ...

These clips were shot after I added a clip category tab at the top of the page for "Buildings and Traffic".  I would like to start expanding on certain topics to give my users a variety of shots to choose from when editing their projects.  Many of you have sent me some really great stuff using the traffic time lapses, and I was trying to think of something that could be easily cut between those to better tell a story. 

To get this shot, I was able wedge my camera in-between the dashboard and the steering wheel.  I have a flexible arm with a clamp that is actually holding the camera to the base of the steering column.  This allowed me to drive safely while shooting.  Because I didn't have access the perfectly level roads, our local expressway added a couple of bumps along the way.  I actually exaggerated the camera shake to give the clip a sense of speed and well as mask the unintentional hits to the shot.  

I grabbed the extra seatbelt clip when I was getting out of my car... something I hope someone can use in something like a safe driving PSA.  It may cut nicely with the emergency response clips I have.

Anyways, as always, I hope these clips are helpful and add a little something to your editing toolbox.  

You have the option of downloading a PhotoJPEG, H.264 or WMV file. I'd also like to go back and update all of the earlier clips and will do so eventually.  Doing so is a very big time commitment for me with the current processing power of my computer.

You can preview and download the clip by clicking "read more" below.  Happy Downloading!
