I got a chance yesterday to use my newly acquired Canon 5D Mark III for the first time on a shoot and boy, wow! I will be the first person to complain about the practicality of using a DSLR for video shooting, but once you see how gorgeous the images it produces are, well, suddenly you’re willing to put up with a lot. The shoot was for an upcoming Smithsonian exhibit called “Roads of Arabia”. The exhibit brings together various artifacts created in Arabia more than 6,000 years ago. We shot the museum curators as they were literally opening the crates and pulling out the ancient items. Here a curator inspects Arabian jewelery.
