Takeoff at (0:34)
Me almost falling at (9:23)
Olympus just arrived on Friday so i thought i'd take it out for a test flight today. Will take a bit of learning when it comes to settings but i'm excited to see a side-by-side of this and GH2 (Comparison soon to come). Had the stabilization set to mode 3 in the camera, going to have to try mode 1 to see if it handles this type of movement any better. Sorry there's no music but i wanted to upload the untouched video straight out of the camera for you guys to check out. Also think i might have accidental left the autofocus on, oops. One thing i did notice is that the camera certainly doesn't like to be pointed straight down, hope a different stabilization mode fixes that. More test footage to come soon!!!
UPDATE: Just tried stabilization mode 1 and found the results much more pleasing. Made a huge difference!
This was a lot of the better footage from my trip to Bristol. All the aerial video shot in this was done with an un-hacked Panasonic GH2 on a Cinestar 6. All the time lapse footage was done with a gopro2. This is also all unstabalized footage. It's also a little longer then i care to typically make my videos but there was a lot to fit in.
Re-graded and uploaded in 1080p instead of 2.5K, this is a modified edit of my Blackmagic Cinema Camera shootout in Berlin. The main aim here is to see how the Panasonic GH3 compares to the best of the rest (under $4000). Featuring:
- Panasonic GH3 and GH2 (hacked)
- Canon 5D Mark III
- Sony FS100
Full review of the Panasonic GH3 coming soon plus short film.
This whole project has been an amazing experience. The two of us became friends through Vimeo and explored a shared interest in timelapsing Yosemite National Park over an extended period of time. We'd like to expand this idea to other locations and would appreciate any suggestions for a future project.
Our hearts go out to the families of Markus Praxmarer who lost his life while climbing Half Dome on September 19th, 2011 and Ranger Ryan Hiller, who was crushed by a tree January 22nd 2012. They will be missed. (A photo of Ranger Ryan Hiller can be found to the right, above the statistics counter)
