  • I think you found that the 50 f1.8 isn't contrasty enough to focus through the viewfinder with auto focus.  It can but because people are now playing with super shallow depth of field shots, being ...
  • I see where people online are saying they can skip the FAA safety guidelines if they are flying their drone under a CBO set of safety guidelines.  Good news for gliders riding thermals. Now to find ...
  • We disagree. I can live with that. They are a company that sells insurance under the guise of a club. Hence the need to pay the AMA $65 in addition to the fees I pay my actual model club. The AMA ...
  • The FAA can not make hobbyists join an insurance company such as the AMA in order to fly model airplanes. The FAA can not make you pay any company to fly as a US citizen enjoying the hobby. One can ...
  • I think I will be flying closer to obstacles than I initially planned after seeing the results from the camera. The wide angle really pushes subjects away from the camera. This is my first drone ...
  • Nice photo. Recovery of the drone was one of the cons against getting the insurance. But for the Spark it was pretty cheap. We only have lakes around me and I have a boat so water recovery could be ...
  • Did you guys get the DJI Care Refresh package?  I went back and forth with it since the Spark is pretty cheap and durable, but decided to get it in the end.  That they will handle drowned drones ...
  • Replied in SL2 Video
    External audio. Audio is very sensitive to sounds transmitted through camera bodies, tripods, or mounts.  Sound gets poor very fast as you get farther from the subject.  Hence, external booms with ...
  • I didn't realize Youtube would play back at more than 30fps.  Thought they down converted it so people tended to use 60fps for slow down effects. There is software to add motion blur to moving ...
  • If you get the steady cam type, buy one with adjustment screws that adjust the position of the mounting plate.  I just have locking screws and a mount that you shift position with your fingers.  ...
  • Bandwidth of your internet connection is going to limit you.  My two and a half minute high resolution videos (1080p), from my GoPro Session 5, run 570MB.  They look great but would be hard to ...
  • The gopro has the "Plus" Cloud service that automatically uploads to the cloud when the camera is plugged in to a computer for charging. People on the account can then see the footage. With the ...
  • I meant that the vlogger's subject was the youtube kids at the table but her pan speed rendered the kids unviewable. Wasted shot/time that I know now to avoid since there is no settings that work ...
  • Replied in Shotgun mics
    Isn't the shotgun mic designed to eliminate background/environmental sounds that are off center of the interview subject? Great for catching people talking (selfie vloggers) but less so for ...
  • Equipment limitations.   24fps or 30fps is more economical.  My T5i will only hit 30fps at 1080 and my newest GoPro will only do 60fps (or 90fps) in wide fisheyed mode. I haven't  looked at editing ...
  • Thanks. I will remember the 7 second rule. I often pan too fast. I think I was subconsciously hiding how unstable the camera is (hand held or cheap steady cam) by whipping it.
  • That helps.  I am working on getting video of a moving horse from another horse or ATV.  I have a steadycam style mount to help stabilize, but the background (like this vlogger's) can really give ...
  • Makes sense. I was wondering how hollywood or other crews avoided the issue. I will have to watch my panning speed.
  • Created discussion thread Poor image when panning
    I saw a video on youtube where the vlogger panned (15-ish degrees per second speed) across a conference tables. All the faces looked jittery and blurred. They note in other videos how they use ...
  • Exactly. I often wondered why people would settle for low quality cars. Quality>>>>Quantity After all most people spend a fair portion of their day in one. :-D I think the OP also misses out that ...
