This video is kind of a short, documentary view of a specific place and time. In this case the city of Des Moines, Iowa downtown on a winter afternoon in February 2014.
I took the GM1 and GX7 out for a shoot on a mild afternoon. Today I decided to shoot with only prime lenses primarily the Panasonic 25mm f1.4 and the Olympus 75mm f1.8. Neither of these lenses is stabilized and the 75mm in particular is not usable for hand held video so that means taking a tripod along. I like to travel as light as possible and that's why I often go out with the Panasonic stabilized f2.8 zooms or the EM5 with in body stabilization.
Even though taking a tripod hasn't been my usual style for these casual local shoots I'm pleased with the results. Between the sharp prime lenses, the tripod stable shots and the excellent Panasonic codecs I didn't need to do any stabilization in post and the footage looks good.
