If you have seen the movie Scott Pilgrim Vs The World, you may remember the scene on the bus where heart shape bokeh appeared in the background. Well, beyond helping you to create great images, the Bokeh Master’s Kit can help to shape the video output of an HDSLR and therefore allows for a great deal of creativity. For further reading take a look at Day 1 and Day 2 of the review.

Video Samples with the Nikon D90

This was my first time shooting video with my Nikon D90. The idea was Chris Gampat’s idea to tell the truth. I was hesitant but I took up the challenge. The first show-able sample video was not the best, but it showed slight bokeh shaping. I misjudged the lighting, but the Bokeh Master Kit was consistent. It was all about the choices I made.

My second sample consists of the proper lights in the background. I used manual focus and went straight for the bokeh. From the train platform I was on, I had a lot of streetlights and moving car head lights and brake lights to exploit. I utilized the environment to steady my camera.


The third example was me now comfortable enough with the process to be creative. And I think it worked out pretty well. It’s a fun addition to my photography and for the price will be enjoyed by many other enthusiasts as well.

This really makes me wonder what the kit will be like with the D7000 that we had hands on time with.

If you’re interested in the Bokeh Master’s Kit, it comes in three different kits that can be found here.
