hey Oregon Filmmaker Tim Cash here!
Ever wonder if your Canon 7D is waterproof?….you probably didn’t just thought hmmm. yeah this thing is definitely NOT waterproof. well, I wanted to test that theory. I found a local fountain in Redmond Oregon. the cool kind that you ca run around in and not get in trouble. well I had a client coming to Bend to shoot 3 music videos and I decided to do a little concept video at 60p in the fountain. originally wanted to use twixtor to slow it down more but….I’m not really a guru when it comes to after effects. I mean i have a life and it doest involve moving key frames around all day. sorry to all the CG guys out there. give yourself a round of applause cause I just dont have the patience. anyway….
so shot a video in a fountain and she(canon 7D) took a few direct hits and stopped wrking…for 4 hours and then she was back online for several months. at the moment she is sitting at the california canon service center getting a faulty shutter dial fixed….wonder how that happened. here is the video I made with the footage I got before the camera stopped working.
