I grabbed my PMW-EX1 and drive to the powerlines about three miles from my house. I knew the sunset was gonna be sweet.
But, I was about ten minutes to late. I saw the soft ball of fire just drop out of site as I parked the car. So this video is short and not very good. It does show off the camera's low light capabilities...
I managed to get a few shots as it became darker by the minute and the sound of thunder rumbled in the distance.
I used interval recording and shot 720 30p at 1 frame per 1 second of time elapsed. I used my 35mm f2.8 and my 200mm f3.5 lenses to shoot this footage.
As always, I had the Letus Extreme attached to the front of my camera. I did not have time to set up my motorized pan head for a panning time lapse. Next time...
I edited this in Final Cut Pro and color graded with Magic Bullet Looks. I over-saturated the colors in the video.
TRT: 44 seconds
