Hanson Music Video Shot on Canon 7D with Nikon AI Lenses

Hanson’s new music video for their single, “Thinking ‘Bout Somethin'” is really something — and it’s no MMMBop.

The video was shot on a Canon 7D, fitted with some Nikon AI  (automatic indexing) prime lenses.

Paul Lawson, the creative director and director of photography for the video said:

I chose the Canon 7D, primarily because this was before the 5D firmware finally came out and I got sick of hearing the rumors so I just went with the 7D to shoot the video. (a week later the firmware actually was released this time). I used an array of old 80’s Nikon AI Prime Lenses to shoot the entire video, to really try an emulate the look and feel of the vintage film.

There’s definitely a lighthearted, vintage feel to the video, which pays homage to the film, “The Blues Brothers,” and features a cameo of “Weird Al” Yankovic on the tambourine.

    Great video for a really great and talented band! Having chosen to be independent (Hanson formed their own label in 2003 to have more artistic independence), Hanson really dances to the beat of their own drum. You guys should check out their newest album just out this year called ANTHEM. There are also songs showing their Motown influences there.
