    • Best focusing method when shooting with stabilizer
      I shot the MCU with the Olympus 12-40 at 25mm f/2.8 on a gimbal: more then that, if you precede or follow the actor you loose the sense of movement and the parallax effect, while it is great if you follow him/her on the side. 
          After that video I made other shot with the gimbal and the sweet spot was between 12mm and 18mm.
      I made this part at 14mm f/2.8 and I think it is more dynamic then at 25mm. 

      Of course no focus pulling during the shot, I just had to remain at the same distance from the subjects.

      Hope that helps    
    • Petition for Samsung NX1 hack
      Luca, you really need somehow to build also the intelligent speedbooster. I see many, many ppl interested into it.

      A couple screen grabs from a BTS video shoot, 1DC 4K C-log pixel summed to 2K, graded/texture-managed/re-grained.  
    • Best focusing method when shooting with stabilizer
      All my wide moving shots on the Pandora movie I just shot I did with the Panasonic 14mm at f2.5 or the Olympus 17mm at 2.8 I don't do moving shots on longer lenses as the focus can be a nightmare All those steady cam shots on Birdman were done on 14mm and 18mm lenses
    • Lighting question
      I am Not Sure something "too tiny" will be adequate for daytime. Especially with the Sun in pockets beteeen trees and all. The Aputure, M9 won't really have enough throw. It is ok for something within a foot at best. Like practicals in a restaurant shot type of lighting, and not for lighting faces.  Use a daylight balanced Strong LED with something to soften the glare. Maybe something like this:  http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1114779-REG/aputure_amaran_al_198_198_on_camra_daylight.html
