A while ago I blogged about how you can shoot macro videos without a macro lens, providing a step by step guide on this neat procedure. Recently, I purchased a Blackmagic Design Video Assist Recorder to help me shoot ultra close-up videos using a Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro Lens on my Canon EOS 5D Mark III. The detail I captured on the SPS corals in my 187 gallon reef tank was amazing!


All you have to do is hook it up to a DSLR with a HDMI cable and you can record video from the camera when using either the 5x or 10x digital zoom!
