St Benets - Video


#1

Kept it relatively short for a change

That’s lovely :+1:


#3

Nice Paul, did you colour grade the video or is that straight from the card?


#4

It was tweaked slightly, because of the frost and the sun not quite up it was looking washed out, I try not to overdo it so things don’t look too unnatural.
Everything from 1:39 is shot as is without any colouring and straight from the card, the sun was up at this point so everything had a lovely orange/red tint

Hi Paul
Was going to say the same as @milkmanchris
I saw this earlier today when you upped it on YouTube
I know it is frosty but just a tad more grading at the beginning wouldn’t harm it I don’t think
But as always perfect flight and panning if only I could stop moving the sticks
May try pinching instead of thumbing like Ken Heron…


#6

I did think that Jeff but then I didn’t want it to look too drastic when it changed shot, all criticism welcome though :+1:


#7

So do you pinch or thumb? :thinking:


#8

I thumb :+1: I tried the pinch method when I first got it but it just feels awkward

LOVE the colours @ 1:23!!!

I mean - it’s all good - but after the muted early-morning colours before that it came as a really impressive contrast!

Was that conical shaped building once a windmill, I’m guessing?

Good use of @EricMatyas’ music, too! :+1:

Great video Paul !


#11

Beautiful. That shot at 1’ 25" is a winner. Grab a 4K still and enter it for the next CountryFile calendar. Seriously.


#12

That video sequence coming out of the reed bed at 1.42 ,is superb !.
In fact it’s ALL bloody good !


#13

Thanks guys I appreciate the comments, I could probably do another video with what I left out but wanted to keep it shorter than my usual 4-5mins

@OzoneVibe It was a windmill, it’s history can be found here

@SteveBell Thanks Steve but they might object as drones are not allowed on their property, I took off from a nearby path but I think it is still owned by them. I did actually take a still from around that time frame


#14

:+1:


#15

Could pass as taken from the ground, what they don’t know wont hurt them ;o)

Such a shame (aka “effing massive omission!”) that, even on the more recent M2P/Z, DJI still won’t implement simultaneous photos whilst recording video.

Admittedly with the M2s at max bit-rate there might be processor limitations, but not at any resolution would definitely get them the Plonker Badge if they posted here.

My 9 year old DSLR can happily mange it … and most digital cameras and phones. Why are DJI bucking the trend on this?
