Star Trek Transporter effect
I my last video i did a Star Trek transporter effect. It's pretty basic and i would like to create something like the transporter of the Franklin in Star Trek Beyond in my future videos.
I would love to get feedback on my video quality and what would you add. Particulary the lighting is a area i need to work on.
I know there are worlds between my transporter effect and the pro effect from Beyond, but i would like to be able to do it some day. Imagine all the techniques that go in a effect like this.
I'm shooting on the GH4 whit the Panasonic Lumix G Leica DG Summilux 15mm f/1.7 ASPH Lens.
Thanks for reading
X-T2 HD Video strange deformation
By Boris M
A few weeks ago I bought an X-T2, mainly for stills but as a video tool too. Yesterday evening I was making my first real video test shooting : my son presenting a magic trick.
Apart the poor choice of profile and the exposition aproximation (light was going down fast) a few of the clips shows some strange "flickering" at the hedges of the picture as you can see there, straight out from cam :
The majority of other clips are looking normal, there were shot with the same settings, except for focal lenght minor apperture or Iso changes. Settings were FHD 25 P, Velvia profile with -2 in hi, low lights and sharpness (trst purposes), iso 200 to 320, 1/50s, F5.6. Good Transcend 600x SDXC card (never showing problem with lumix gh3). The X-T2 was in boost mode. The only thing that I can think of if that the battery (original np126s) was running low at this moment. I changed it a few time after, but before the camera shuted down. My other track is the OIS I forgot to turn off, I know that it 's sometimes bad when on a tripod but that bad ?
I did not succed in reproducing the problem. Wich in a certain way is a bad thing as the reason is still unknown. For this shooting its not a problem but it's not good for trust in gear you need to have for critical and pro aplications.
It look like if the lens correction was going on and off... Have you experienced something similar ? What do you think of it ? I'm new to Fuji and I already know the limitations of X-T2 as a video tool but I'm not new to video and never seen something like that.
Thanks for your looks and thinks.
On Lankan Tracks – A Short Travel film with Sony A7S II
Hey folks. Last year I travelled to Sri Lanka for four weeks, hopping about the place and pulling all kinds of strange poses in the name of having a totally not relaxing vacation. But it's what happens, I guess. I edited together all the footage I collected and I'd love to hear any kind of feedback you might have. In hindsight, I wish I'd collected more footage, but I hope that doesn't shine through too strongly.
Edit wise, I dabbled a little with the fast zooms that have become so commonplace in this genre over the past few years but wanted to restrain myself so to not go too overboard. The Watchtower of Turkey style isn't really my thing, as much as I appreciate it, but I wanted to steal a little of that energy films like this can generate.
Cam wise, I used my Sony A7SII, GFILM colour profile, Canon 24-105 and an old Zeiss Jena 35mm that I absolutely love. No rigs, no stabiliser.

HOMEWHERE: Location recording sessions
By Ronnie Amighetti
Me and a friend started a series on YouTube. It's called HOMEWHERE.
See that we both come from the music world (I'm an audio engineer by day, my partner is a musician and a photographer) we decided to kick it off by asking friends to let us "invade" their homes and have some fun.
Of course we've got a lot of things still to learn but so far we had a lot of fun which was the driving force behind all of this.
Would like to get suggestions and whatnot. Thanks.
