I cut it off during the embedded heckler intervention — nice touch to the skit. Shame I didn’t record it until the end.

I got a problem uploading HD file on youtube and vimeo only have 500 MB limit per week. I try to reduce the 1080p to 640, but it got blocky artifacts even with 5000 bit rate. Exporting to 720p turns out decent.


Raw upload, no colour grading.

Shot with Canon EOS 5D Mark II, wide open f/2.0 with Canon EF 135mm f/2L USM, 29.97fps, 1/30 s, ISO 1600.

Mounted on Manfrotto monopod. Internal microphone.


Here’s Malaysiakini viceo clip, that captured the ending of the skit.

It took me just two week to spend RM20k++ in cash on photography equipment alone — and I’m just a hobbyist -_-

My niche market: Oil & Gas, Commercial Diving, ROV Flying and Corporate Event.

I’m off to Singapore next week — Saturation Diving System will be arriving at Loyang Offshore Supply Base. I better get the wide-angle lens that I booked this Saturday, 18th April 2009.

Here’s to Camera Obscura!
