Manual Video Controls on the Canon 5D Mark II… Coming soon!

Well well well! I saw it coming! And Canon is treating its loyal customers by giving the most demanding feature of  video capable 5d mark II, MANUAL CONTROLS.

I know how frustrating the auto-exposure of the video is. I was commisioned filming a music video few months ago and it was very hard to always AEL and do the nasty hand block tricks!

But by 1st week of June 2009 Canon will be releasing a new firmware that ends all this misery!

Kudos to Canon!

Time to reconsider those video rig again!!!

Pinoy Photography Organization, or PiPho, is one of the country’s top photography clubs. Established in 2005, the club was formed by a group of friends who all share the same passion in photography, and formed Pipho Org, with the philosophy, “To Learn, Share and Enliven Your Passion.” What was once a handful of amateur photographers, in 4 years, has grown into a photography club with over 50 members, consisting of both professionals and serious hobbyists, each having a style of his own. Pipho boasts of a diverse pool of talented members, of different specialties and fields in photography, who never ceases wanting to learn, and who are always willing to share, and encouraging each other, to keep the passion for photography alive.

Something Nature, is PiPho’s take on how they see nature. Having photographs taken from different parts of the country and different parts of the world, the club’s main goal is to showcase the natural beauty that is all around us.
