Your workflow, your way... When he first laid eyes on the lightweight, compact VFC-7000 camera at a Toronto tradeshow last summer, Von Wongwas impressed with the cameras slow motion capabilities. He capitalized on the cameras ability to capture high-speed HD recordings when he later used it to shoot a creative video that focused on his long hair. Von Wong subjected himself to water, eggs, and flour being thrown at his head during a cold night, along with some fire thrown into the mix all in the name of exciting slow motion footage. He paired FOR-As VFC-7000 with a LensBaby Composer lens for the video shoot.
