My actually very first GH1-footage, taken on a nice summer day at beaches in Zushi and Enoshima.

Also my first edit using FCP. Wanted to test the workflow and see, how it will come out on Vimeo. For some shots, I should have used a tripod, but you can't show up with this on a beach here in Japan ... or people look at you like at the guy in the video ... hahaha ...
So I tried the FCP stabilizer on some takes, but unfortunately it brings some loss of quality.

Most shots taken at full zoom and some with a ND filter too. Note to myself: Using cameras with a narrow DOF, like the GH1, the focus should actually always be locked if possible.

The video is also maybe not deinterlaced ( I am not sure ). I exported the file from FCP in Apple ProRes 422 HQ and converted it to 1280x720, 30 fps by using Quicktime.

Still working on a perfect workflow to obtain the full quality. Nevertheless ... here are some impressions of beaches close to Tokyo ... enjoy ;-)))
