Be a Movie Maker with Canon PowerShot SX230 HS


It's no secret that i am a fan of martial arts. Donnie Yen's quick chops often make me miss the move, making it hard to imitate in private training.

Sherlock Holmes was one of the first to utilise slow motion fliming and i love how raw and surreal it makes the scene.

You don't need to be on a real movie set to make such scenes now. The new Canon PowerShot has a Super Slow Motion movie function that allows users to record video at a very high frame rate, possessing the appearance of slow motion when played back at regular speed. The Super Slow Motion movie function captures a subject at 240 frames-per-second (fps), and later plays back the footage at 30 fps, allowing each moment of footage to be appreciated in super slow motion while maintaining great image quality.

You also have the option of reversing it back to regular speed with the help of Canon's downloadable free software as well.

But since we are in Hong Kong and for my love of fighting scenes, i directed Darren to act with moi!

With the super slow motion, the scene becomes SUPER DRAMA!

Another interesting feature is the camera's Movie Digest Mode, which records quick video clips in the camera's buffer right before you take a photo, and then stitches the short videos together to create a video montage of your shooting day.

What i really really like is not only the slow mo is funny to play with, while other cameras merely records videos, Canon Powershot records in black and white and even with Miniature special effects!

Here's an example of blogger's day out on Duke, Crocs boat. See how the boats look like toys and fat people smaller. What movie making magic.

No, you don't need huge ass cameras like this
Michael Bay with camera.
nor spend hours in a studio mixing special effects. All you need is this baby that can fit into a handbag!
Now you can win your OWN Canon Powershot too! Just vote for your favourite travel pictures. Hong Kong Tourism Board and OMY recently invited me to see Hong Kong through the lens of Canon, thus these wonderful sharing and memories.

With the Powershot in hand, try the famous 300 scene below with the slow mo function!

Upload it to Youtube and maybe you'll become a star!

That's how happy i am with my Canon Powershot!
