Using Canon's 7D to Make Killer Slow Motion Video

With the help of pro breakdancer, contortionist, acrobat Karimbo, Brussels-based photographer, director David Olkarny put together this short video using the Canon 7D a Canon 50mm 1.4 and Canon 24-70mm 2.8L. Another video that proves that if you got the talent, creativity, drive and a modest kit, you can make something worth looking at.

VFX : David Olkarny / Raphael Beyaert

Congrats on the shots in that video, they are amazing but doesn't that break dancer know that that is how you break your coccyx?

Karimbo is an amazing B-Boy (we prefer not to use the term breakdance/breakdancer, this was a media coined term and now true to our culture), if you enjoy the insanity that is his skills, take a peek at dancers such as Rubberlegz, Lil Amok, B-Boy Cico, Lil' Ceng, Evol, Lil' G, Taisuke, B-Girl Queen Mary, B-Boy Hill, B-Boy Kill, and so many others I can't even begin to list, truly some amazing amazing talent!

Take a peek at some here:

Here's some near world record B-Boy action by B-Boy Cico

Is it done with Twixxor or just regular after effects?

I would like to know that too. Awesome video!

Yes I did use twixtor :)

Cool video but editing is just poor. He could have used the move and super slo-mo for dynamic tansitions.

The entire time I was watching this video, I kept thinking of a dancing Mormon. :D 

Nice video, though!

Normally I'm immediately turned off by break dancing videos. THIS is an exception. 

Lovely little video. Definitely going to share this one.

Taisuke is dope, so is Cico. This is fly. I wonder how the shooter got the video so slow because Twixtor chews good video up.

60 P and/or High Shutterspeed for excellent Twixtor Analysis. Awesome movie!!!!

what shutter speed to record this ?

1/1000 minimum is advised!

Thanks for the insight David Olkarny !

This is awesome! What were the settings used on your 7D to achieve this slow motion effect?
