    When The Sun Goes Down - relaxation piece

    A relaxation piece done in Resolve Studio and Studio one PRO (music) using very old video from a D7100 of the Oregon Coast near Bandon.

    Is Video Driving Most of the Innovation in New Cameras? I find Thom Hogan interesting, if a bit curmudgeonly. It's an interesting idea that stills photography might be leveling off for many so that all of the new innovations are aimed at video.

    Upgraded to Mercalli V6 AI

    After 4 years or so of using V5, I saw that 6 was out. Now with Dual IS on my G9's I get very steady video. That being said sometimes you just need the extra or have to save an important take. 5 was very good, 6 is magic with the AI. I have a 12 core / 24 thread with 12 gig GPU and 3600 mz 64...

    Going to go with the Gh6 and the 14-140mm...anyone use this combo?

    My "good glass" (all M43 is good glass if you ask me) is 7-14, 12-35,35-100,100-400. I've also got the 7.5 FE and 60mm Oly macro (which is a fantastic lens). I was going to go for one of the f1.7 zooms and realized heavy and very duplicative of the FOV's I have for my non-PRO use. So I've been...

    Micro 4/3 I am shooting video as I type.......

    I have my G9/Oly 60mm videoing hundreds of small American House Spiders (Achaearanea tepidfariorum) leave the egg sac. Although I am buying a new camera in October (now vacillating between the OM1 and Gh6), I will be keeping my 2 G9's. Why? because I know them and find them to be the perfect...

    Micro 4/3 OM-1 for video

    First time out with the OM-1 for video. I took 68 videos on Saturday, 1920x1080 at 60fps in 'normal' colour. Indoors, auto ISO ranging from 400 to 5000 (as the day progressed and the light started to fade) and the subjects were dancers. I used the 12-40 pro II, mostly at the 12-20mm range, and...

    Pondering getting a GoPro 10

    Any insights, lessons learned or other teachables, or resources from the action camera crowd, as to setting up, must haves other than the camera and such? I have been pondering getting one of these for (perceived) ease of use, even though I have a lot of Lumix gear which probably blows the...

    What video editor do you use?

    For many years, both for fun and professionally I used Vegas. In late 2021 I changed to Resolve Studio PRO with the speed editor. Retired and just doing video for me, I wanted a couple of things I couldn't get in Vegas, but was leery of changing after so many years using Vegas. That fear turned...

    Leica Interesting Video: Sold all his gear to switch to Leica

    I like the parallel between Leica cameras and his Air Jordans: the shoes don't make him a better player, but he has more fun playing. Personally, I think, I too have gotten to the point of having too much gear ( :oops: ) and it either sits unused or gets in the way...

    Micro 4/3 Another OM-1 video from DPR: OM-1 vs. R3 for Sports

    This time it's the OM-1 vs. the Canon R3 for shooting a hockey game. Even though the R3 clearly has a huge advantage being a camera aimed at this kind of work, it was an a great review of what the OM-1 can and can't do well. The also note that the lens/body kit is about $3800 USD for the OM1...

    Leica A WWII Reenactment Video featuring a Leica

    For English turn on the captions. This is a German produced video channel that has some very well-made short features. I have been following them for about a year. It is not pro-Nazi, as far as possible their channel seems to be politically neutral and anti-war. (although the comments in their...

    Share Video

    Doesn't seem to be a generic video share thread for random stuff so I thought I'd create one. I'm a complete newbie so I claim no expertise or know-how on this subject. Anywho, I had my GH3 with Oly 60mm macro for some bee-shots ready to go but the bees were being so obliging I thought I'd...

    DJI Pocket 2 Gimbal Tracking Video Camera

    I just got one of these devices to test. It is uncanny Chinese engineering so far ahead of ANYTHING I have tried that it makes EVERY DSLR , Rangefinder or Video/Photo device totally obsolete. It is like stepping off a Douglas DC3 into a Boeing 787 It is beyond amazing. The USA is doomed. We...

    Sony A7RIV as a video camera

    I just read that the agreement between AP and Sony will result in most of their photographers getting a pair of A9II bodies and the videographers getting a pair of A7RIV bodies. Being video challenged, I would have expected the A7SIII bodies to be for video. Comments from the video cognoscenti?

    Video vs. Stills

    One thing that is stopping my camera body GAS is current emphasis on video. I gather the stills side of things has plateaued for while, at least in terms of advances and profits for the camera makers. I'm not a video guy and when I need video clips of the grand kids the old iPhone comes out...

    What do you actually do with the video capabilities of your camera?

    I like to ask this periodically. What do you actually do with the video capabilities of your camera? I know that I never really use them and they never make a difference in a camera purchase except as a resale feature. If I want a quick video, I pull out my iPhone. It's really that simple...

    Sirui is releasing a new, very affordable Anamorphic lens in native mounts for Fuji X, M 4/3, Sony E, and Z Cam. This will be a big game changer for filmmakers and cinematographers. Anamorphic lense can get highly costly. And adapting them a major headache. Having a native mount lens where you...

    Fireworks video shot with RX10 IV

    Shot off tripod. Trees obscured part of lower sky. Had troubles with getting slo-mo to work (note to self: bring small flashlight so you can see the dials!). Need to figure how to get faster autofocus lock-on, but still, pleased with initial result. All feedback welcome. Cheers, Jock

    Second whack at a Cohoes Falls video with the RX10 IV

    Different video editor, differing editing, different music. Luke, you can probably ID the music -- no cheating with one of those auto-apps! Better, maybe? Cheers, Jock

    Configuring 2019 iMac for Photo and Video Editing

    My 2011 21.5-inch iMac with i7 chip, 8GB of RAM and 1TB HDD is beginning to slow down but still works. However, it can no longer be updated to the latest Mac OS. Given its age, it's probably time to replace it. But my budget is not unlimited and cannot handle a completely maxed out 2019...

    Well, I have my X-U, and I really love it so far! As you may know from my earlier posts, I vowed to be one of the first people not connected with Leica to shoot underwater with the X-U, so I come to redeem my promise :). I'm not going to say this is a pretty image, but to my eye it shows an...

    Sony Sony RX100 Mark IV Video Exposure Problems

    Hi there! First time poster, but in searching for this issue I can't find anyone else here posting on it. I've had my Sony RX100 Mark IV for a few months now, and generally love it. But when I use it for video in full auto mode, I see exposure issues with almost every shot. I can only describe...

    A week with the GoPro Hero 3+

    I have been enjoying the simplicity of my iPhone lately. The video bit mostly. But I've always fancied a GoPro. Ok, it's not an insignificant investment so a bit of a gamble as to wether I would bond with such a beast. Well I have. Pretty impressed actually . I thought the 1080 60fps footage...

    Another video question...

    I was noticing as I tried to shoot some video early, that the aperture was constantly adjusting with the lighting. That was both while in A and M exposure modes, ahead of starting to roll the video. Did I miss a setting some place? I hope. Please don't tell me that it continuously adjusts the...
