Hanson music video shot on Canon 7D and Nikon lenses

About The Author

CNET Editor

Lexy spent her formative years taking a lot of photos and dreaming in technicolour. Nothing much has changed now she's covering all things photography related for CNET.

Don't worry, the strains of MmmBop haven't come back to haunt you. Hanson has a new song and the band's creative director, Paul Lawson, has done something clever that will interest photographers and film-makers alike.

The video has been shot on the Canon EOS 7D using Nikon AI (Automatic Indexing) lenses from the 1980's. The older lenses were used to mimic the look of vintage film.

As uncool as you might think the band is, you have to admit that the video is pretty impressive — especially if you're a digital SLR film-maker and noticed the lack of aliasing and other dSLR issues. Plus, it pays the ultimate homage to The Blues Brothers. Make sure you check out who makes a cameo on tambourine.

Weak parody on George Michael. Lame.

I enjoyed the video and the song. I like a lot of the subtleties throughout the video. Cool.

Hey, what do you delete negative comments? So visitors can't share their cool opinion while uncool writers like you can? Unfair. =))

Hey Lexi, this is journalism at its weakest. Particularly given your Us sister site posted a story a week ago about a whole episode of House being shot on a Canon 5D. Now that's news!

oops, shows how little I visit this site these days. I with draw my comment none the less and apologise.

Perhaps a sentence referring back to the House episode within the context of more and more larger scale productions using dSLR video would be advisable.

It shouldn't be advisable, it would be a repeat of old news. Just withhold your nonsensical comments. Now that's news! Durr

Mute your computer before you press play.

No ammount of technical interest in the cameras could have made listening to that worthwhile.

Passable song. Great video. And I thought it was the Chaser's Andrew Hanson.

Great video - great visuals.

Sadly, Hanson doesn't get the respect they deserve. It's 2010, not 1997. If anybody believes they're "uncool" they're stuck in the late '90s, and their egos haven't allowed them to appreciate what insiders in the music industry are already aware of - Hanson is one of the best rock bands around right now.
