A ‘Walking Dead’ LEGO Stop-Motion Animated Short Made Using a Canon Rebel T3

Wonderful little video made with a simple Canon Rebel T3/EOS 1100D by artist MonsieurCaron.

What happen when Daryl Dixon see some smoke in the forest ? Will he investigate it ? Is there any walkers over there ? This short LEGO brickfilm use the very rare Zombie Hunter Enthusiast minifigure made with genuine LEGO bricks by Citizen Brick as well as custom zombies head and a collection of more than 250 000 LEGO bricks. It’s not really a Walking Dead story, more of an homage to Norman Reedus character and the zombie genre.

MonsieurCaron shot over 3000 pictures, and spent a month to build, film, and edit the whole stuff. The result is awesome. There are 15 images per second! Congrats!

Canon EF 1200mm f/5.6L tele-monster review

1200

B&H Photo posted a long review about Canon’s legendary EF 1200mm f/5.6 lens. The review comes with some historic facts too. It’s speculated that Canon made less than 2 dozens of this lens (it appears even Canon can not tell how many they made).

The Canon EF 1200mm f/5.6 L USM lens was born with the Canon FD mount and reportedly first appeared in 1984, at the Summer Olympic Games in Los Angeles, California. Five lenses were used by the media to cover the Games and then the lenses were shipped back to Japan and later converted to the EF mount. According to Canon, this is the longest lens in the world with full autofocus capability.

Canon made this lens available by special order only. A $10,000 deposit was required with the order and manufacturing would only start when several lenses were put on order. Sports Illustrated magazine purchased two 1200mm lenses in the 1990’s. Canon lent a lens to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch in 1999, so they could document Major League Baseball slugger Mark McGuire’s single-season home-run record attempt from center field; photographing every pitch McGuire faced that season. The extreme focal length of the lens gives a unique perspective of the distant view from the outfield fence that other lenses cannot capture.

Definitely a interesting read. For more about the EF 1200mm lens head over to B&H Photo’s review. The Canon EF 1200mm f/5.6L lens is on sale at B&H Photo for $180,000. A single, used unit in good condition. Act fast as this “super deal” won’t last long 😉 Canon has a dedicated page for the EF 1200mm, or check Wikipedia.
