Vietnam's famous Hanoi Old Quarter has 36 old streets buzzing with activity! Scooters, bicycles, cars and people all packed the streets from morning to night. I took out the GH4 and the Voigtlander Nokton 17.5mm lens to slow things down a bit. During my first time in Hanoi, the roads and traffic really shocked me. I have never seen so many scooters and motorbikes in my life! It took me awhile to master crossing the streets and roads in Hanoi. Like playing a video game. And now I'm a champ.

Recently I shot with the new Canon EOS C100 Mark II for a TV commercial. Although there are no slow motion shots for the TVC, I've been testing the slow motion capabilities of the C100 MK II which now allows you to shoot in-camera 60P slow motion using a special recording function.
Above is video I did explaining how to record 60P slow motion in-camera using the Canon EOS C100 Mark II Special Recording.
And another video that compares 60P slow motion in-camera vs slow motion did in post. So how good is Canon EOS C100 Mark II 60p Slow Motion Special Recording? Based on my tests, slow motion via post (shooting in 60P and then converting to 25P in post) gives slightly better image quality.

Transformers 30th Anniversary Exhibition Singapore celebrates 30 years of evolution of the much beloved and world famous Transformers series. Spotted in the exhibition held at the Science Centre Singapore is this showcase of repainted Transformers toys by Sang Zhong.
Sang Zhong has built great interest in toy models and figures since childhood. After he graduated in fashion design from Donghua University, he still kept the passion for models and figures. He began working on Transformers DIY work, and gradually fell in love with repainting the toys.
Upon the release of the Transformers movie, a series of toys was released in the market. However, due to mass production, the toys were not quite satisfying and their look - especially the colours - appeared quite different from the movies. Some were also disappointed with the plastic texture of the toys. To solve this problem, Sang Zhong started his re-painting project on Transformers toys, hoping to give the toys a rebirth.
Sang Zhong's project is to repaint the original Transformers toys with an ornate metal paint to give texture. The toys had to be completely dismantled and each part was repainted. Paint is applied in multiple layers to ensure the colouring is in perfect condition.

The trailer for the new Avengers movie, Avengers: Age of Ultron is out. Synopsis: With S.H.I.E.L.D. destroyed and the Avengers needing a hiatus from stopping threats, Tony Stark attempts to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program with Ultron, a self-aware, self-teaching, artificial intelligence. However, his plan backfires when Ultron decides that humans are the main enemy and sets out to eradicate them from Earth, and it is up to Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, the Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, along with support from Nick Fury and Maria Hill, to stop him from enacting his plans. Along the way, the Avengers encounter the powerful twins, Pietro and Wanda Maximoff, as well as the familiar Vision.
Ultron is voiced by the amazing James Spader. What is interesting in this trailer is that Tony Stark still has his Iron Man armors, at least some of them. And one of them, the heavy duty Hulkbuster will be used to fight against Hulk.
Avengers: Age of Ultron comes out in April 2015. Long wait.
