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!
If you would like some help with a new tank build, including help designing a custom aquarium, or help re-configuring your current setup then you can visit this page for more information. And if you are looking to add some equipment, I do sell GHL, Pax Bellum, Reef Octopus Calcium and Kalk Reactors and Royal Exclusiv products, including Dreamboxes, which is the equipment I use and recommend. I also sell Reef Brite metal halide and LED fixtures as well as Maxspect & IceCap Gyres.
As for additional insights and information, please explore my many other reef tank and SPS related articles as well as my YouTube channel. For an even deeper dive into reef tank care you can check out my Reef Keeping Master Class. This online course is an immersive and one of a kind educational tool designed to help reef aquarium hobbyists build and maintain a beautiful SPS reef tank. The course is a series of video presentations with some supplemental video from my YouTube channel. There are also quizzes to help students retain and understand the information presented in the course.
Need some frags…..I can help with that as well 🙂 Please visit my SPS Frag store to see what is available.
