    A great ad for the guys at Scheimpflug, really.  Skip to 0:50 for the good stuff, end at 1:30.  A nice 40 seconds, if a bit overly produced for what the video is.  Still nicely done, but it doesn’t really show the shutter that well at 1000fps.

    The whole tone of this video is what someone transported from 1500 to today might feel towards consumer technology.

    Less shiny, more pew pew.

    Could the editing and production in that video be any more annoying? It’s like they gave a 15-year-old boy video-editing software and let them go crazy.

    So stylized, the video is pretty useless.

    That mirror is very steady, not a lot of shaking going on. Nice. (And I’m a Canon fanboy, for your information)

    What is so exciting about it ? D3s had the same burst speed ?

    Agreed. This could have been 1/4 the length. I lost interest and watch a cute kitten video instead.
