Nino Leitner

Director of Photography, Film Director & Producer

Nino Leitner is a film director, DP and producer born in Innsbruck, Austria. He studied film and video production in Salzburg and the United Kingdom and specialises mainly in documentaries, commercials and image films.One of his major works is the feature-length documentary “Every Step You Take” (A/E/UK 2007) that exposed the weird inner-workings of the massive video surveillance / CCTV schemes covering every corner of the UK. It gained quite some media attention, was featured at film festivals around the globe and won several awards.In February 2010, Nino got the rare chance to test the then-upcoming Canon EOS 550D (or Rebel T2i, as it is called in the US) extensively before any other filmmakers around the world could get their hands on it. He shot the test short “FEBRUARY“, which has been watched almost 250,000 times so far, converting uncountable doubters to 550D owners. He started his blog at the same time, propelling it to the top of the league immediately. Since then he has focused on gear reviews for DSLR filmmakers, which made the blog one of the most trusted sources in this sector.
