What do you do when you have to make a commercial featuring Kim Kardashian eating a grilled chicken salad? You throw her in a bed and a bath and remind everyone to eat healthier; of course! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R0IZI0gfU00

The guys over at Zacuto have released their second video of their series that compares film cameras to the current lineup of DSLR cameras. In this video you will see how different ISOs compare across the various cameras tested. It's pretty interesting and this is about as thorough of a test you would probably ever care to run.

In this video Patrick Lawler explains how he shot his fantastic short using the 7D, a trampoline, and a little special effects. Many of our readers have video equipped DSLRs. We should all be out creating unique art just like Patrick. View the full post to see the finished product and get inspired.

Sometimes when filming a commercial you need to step back and view the large picture. Other times you need to view it small.... 1/10th scale small! Check out this video of the new Nissan as the entire crew show you how it was created and click the post to view the final commercial.

It is amazing what creative professionals are doing with their cameras. Sam O'Hare blew my mind today with his short NYC video called The Sandpit. I thought I knew how he created this but was completely wrong. Take a guess then click the link to read about how it was really shot.

Alexx Henry raises the bar again with his latest magazine motion cover for release with the Apple ipad. It is not standard practice for Fstoppers to highlight two videos back to back but this was too good to pass up. Click the post to see how this was created and shot.

Most photographers think outside the box. Alexx Henry starts outside the box and then crams it all back into the box. If there is one video to watch this week, this Outside Magazine cover shoot might be it!

Chase Jarvis is probably one of the most successful commercial photographers working in America. Luckily he is also one of the most generous photographers when it comes to sharing his knowledge and behind the scenes footage.

At this point we have discussed camera settings and audio gear. Now it is time for editing. If you shoot Canon or have a Mac this post really isn't for you. In this video I am talking directly to Nikon D300s users who will be editing with Adobe Premiere CS4. If you would like to learn quickly how to use Adobe Premiere CS4 then view the full post to see a list of helpful videos that we used to teach ourselves the software. UPDATE: EDIT NIKON VIDEOS IN FINAL CUT ADDED TO FULL POST.

So yesterday we talked about setting your camera to shoot video. Today we get a little more complicated. Let's chat about audio. Tomorrow we will take it one step further and discuss the most dreaded part of video... editing! If you have a Canon camera that shoots video, view the full post to check out a video on audio made just for you. We are slowly turning all of you photographers into videographers; you'll thank us later... or you could thank us now in the comment box below. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7XpjkBheeOQ

3 months ago Patrick and I didn't have the slightest idea how to shoot or edit video but in seeing the importance and the power of this movement we decided to teach ourselves how. It was challenging and frustrating (especially with Nikon gear) but we finally learned enough to produce decent videos quickly. If you own a DSLR that shoots video we are going to make this simple for you. In the next 3 days we are going to release 3 videos that discuss: camera settings, audio, and editing. Today let's start with the camera settings on the D300s. View the full post to see a similar video for Canon cameras.
