Postcard From San Francisco. Scenes from a recent visit to San Francisco, California in July, 2014. Footage shot with the Canon 5D Mark II using H.264 native codec and MLV RAW with the Magic Lantern ( enhancements to most Canon EOS DLSRs. Some scenes were shot using the 3X crop mode feature in Magic Lantern. Lenses used were the Tamron 28-75mm f2.8 and Canon 70-200mm f4L.

RAW files were converted to DNG using MLVMystic, then imported and graded in DaVinci Resolve Lite 11 (which is excellent and free, by the way, from BlackMagic Design (, and then final edit in Final Cut Pro X.


McKinney Avenue Time Stretch from Ken Hurst on Vimeo.

This video was made using a Canon 60D shooting 60fps at 720p and then conformed to 24fps and slowing to 25% in Final Cut Pro X. The music, "Grandpa" by Puddle Of Infinity, seems appropriately similar to Leif Inge's "9 Beet Stretch" which is the Beethoven's Ninth Symphony time stretched into 24 hours duration.
