Liberty Mountain Ski Resort - Canon EOS 90D - Miniature filter

My old Canon Rebel T3I finally saw its last days. (Sniffle). She served me well over the past years. But, I bought a new Canon 90D EOS. (Smile). It has a couple new features I tested out while up at Liberty Mountain Ski resort in PA. Of all the new features and functions, I think the "miniature" creative filter is the most fun. Yes, it has a ton of new things to learn, like the wifi/bluetooth functions, 4K video, etc., but this miniature is the one I played with first and turned into the video below. This video is a combination of miniature stills and HD video. It was edited together using Adobe Premiere. Note. The default function of the 90D miniature recording is 5x speed. This means it plays back 5x faster than recorded. I believe they did this to give it a choppy "stop motion animation" feel. The problem is it is too fast. So, in Premiere, I actually slowed the speed down by 75%. That gave the clips a more natural stop motion feel than the the built in. Really, what the miniature setting is doing is blurring the upper and lower portions of the frame and giving a focus priority to the center. I think it also decreases the frame rate, but I didn't read that far in the manual (so dry). Note, the focus priority can be shifted as desired. Anyway, here's the clip and stills. Enjoy.
