I just finished this personal project called “Manta Rays at Risk” using photos I took during my holidays in Maldives and Hawaii. The final movie is in 4k and you can download it on vimeo. Mantas have been classified as Vulnerable by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN). They are at particular risk to overfishing because they produce very few young. Many populations have already been depleted by unregulated fishing. I decided to do a short animated film with the help of my friend José using the Project Aware Infographics. My goal is to create awareness on this matter and share this information in a different way. I hope you’ll like the movie and please feel free to share it. Thanks!

This is my first test using the Magic Lantern RAW during a photo shooting of my cousin Lea I did a month ago. The quality of the DNGs are pretty amazing. I used a Canon 5DMkIII with the 24-70mm 2.8L (@70mm)
Thanks for watching!

Most of you have probably heard about the MōVI handheld stabilized system created by Freefly System and priced at $15.000. I’ve a friend that just pre-order one and I was wondering if another company will come out with a similar camera stabilizer model at a lower price. Well, here we go! A UK based company just come out with the BesSteady ONE, a gyroscopic camera stabilizer priced under $3000. That is 5x less than the Movi Camera System. Take a look a this videos to have an idea. You can subscribe on their website to be informed about the pre-order.
What is the BeSteady?
The BeSteady is a camera stabilizer based on an electronic system equipped with gyroscopic sensors and accelerometers, using the direct drive of three axis of rotation in the form of brushless direct-current motors.
In simple terms, it is a highly advanced electronic device which allows for incredible shots, creating new applications and abilities, perfectly complementing and supplementing other producers’ stabilizers and rigs available on the market.
