This is a short video shot for fun to test the quality of my Canon 60D and show how to make a Latte with a mocha and Bialetti Tuttocrema Frothing Jug. I used only one lens, the Tamron SP AF 17-50mm f 2.8 and the Giotto 9351B Pro Tripod with MH5011 Head and 3-d adjustable column. The 3-d column and the Canon 60D’s swivel LCD were of great help in the shot from above the sink. The camera was in a higher position than me and I could check the recording thanks to the LCD rotated towards me.
The original video is excellent quality, it was shot in HD 1080p 24 fps, however I encoded it in 1280p and in H264 codec for the full HD version would take to long to upload on Youtube 😉

The audio was – alas – recorded with the Canon 60d mic. …unfortunately the quality is not as good as the video.

The ISO range I used was between 200 and 450.

The video was edited with Final Cut Pro but the colors
weren’t altered.

The perfect caffe latte 😉 – which was very tasty – was made with a simple 1-cup Italian moka and a Bialetti milk frother.

    @nikeo671 1920×1080, 24fps; several ISO, a 17-50 mm tamron f/2.8 (I used it mostly at 35 and 50 mm). Imported in final cut pro in Apple Pro Res 4444 codec.

    Interesting I say!!!
    It could've been more attractive with some traditional coffee cup and a more artistic composition of milk froth, but definitely a great idea and a huge thumbs up for putting it on YouTube!!!
