Fusilli – A short movie made while testing a lens
Mar 3, 2013

I did this some months ago, but I'd like to share it and have your opinion.

I was preparing lunch at home and as usual I was going to split myself between cooking and testing my new vintage lens, a Minolta Rokkor MC 58mm f1.4, so I decided to use it for shooting myself while cooking.

It was some kind of joke, because timing was ruled by the food’s own cooking time, but it ended in 20 minutes of pure fun. (continues..)

If you want to read it all and watch it here is the page on my new blog:

Very nicely done - I assume you shot with available light?

It is amazing what a video image you can get off these tiny cameras with a decent basic lens. This is the sort of piece where it really shines - it looks like it has been shot with a camera costing 5 times as much.

Thanks for the reply.

Yes, I shot with the available light, that means only the artificiallights in my kitchen at night.

The lens, around 50$, is one of the cheapest F1.4, it has some flare but a great bokeh.

Thanks for sharing that, a lot of work to take all those shots and edit them together to very nice effect.

I have this lens as well and really like it. Being able to shoot video on an APS-C sensor with fast lenses opens a whole world of videography that was previously far out of reach.

Thanks again.

If you take a great photograph, I really don't care whether it came from a Leica or smartphone. Just share it.

Thanks Charlie!

In the end it didn't take too long to do it.

Actual shooting was while cooking, so it took 20 minutes.

Editing took around an afternoon for the first version and a couple of hours for some fixing.
