Eighteen-year-old Zev Hoover has made news by creating a DIY 8x10-inch large-format video camera — which, he believes, is the only one of its kind in the world. His inspiration, he tells News Shooter, was “[j]ust a love of the large format look.” Essentially, notes Cinema 5D, Hoover “ingeniously rigged an 8X10 large format camera to a slider, with a tilt-shift Sony a7S mounted underneath. The result is an incredibly unique look – razor thin depth of field that has similar subject isolating properties to the tilt-shift macro-look, but on the same plane.” DIY Photography  has more.
