I do perk up when OK Go has a new video. This is a case where my attention is being diverted by the camera that recorded the video, the Samsung NX100. They have teamed up for a video project promotion.
The video below was recorded on the NX100.
OK Go | Myspace Music Videos
I'll give Samsung major props for associating themselves with the band. These guys get promotion and OK Go has the actual music talent to back it up. That said, a totally Flash animated site makes it hard to find info about the camera.
True, I can just click and a scene falls into place. Spiffy. But as much as I like the band I do want gronk the specs on the camera.
