A Biker A Babe and A Nikon

bikers and babes

If there’s one thing bikers like, particularly sport bikers, it’s seeing a little video footage of their exploits. The advent of the GoPro series of small, HD-capable video cameras has resulted in some stunning footage, but what makes a motorcycle video really watchable is some sort of narrative element and some great camera work.

The new Nikon D800 sports some impressive video capabilities, and the company has released a film designed to demonstrate those capabilities to potential buyers.

This not-so-aptly-titled film (as everyone depicted seems a touch concerned or downright surly) is called “Joy Ride” and was shot by one-name photographer, Sandro. If the footage was meant to demonstrate the versatility of the D800, is does one hell of a job as Sandro makes it work in a wide variety of tough lighting situations. The motorcycle tracking night shots and the candle-lit scenes look damn nice.

Keep in mind that buying one doesn’t mean you’ll suddenly be capable of this kind of work…results, as they say, may vary.
