Hey guys and girls!
I posted this video on another forum(MU43) and the friendly people over there pointed me at this forum since i was asking for feedback.
I love to make pictures and short video's as an amateur but i am always looking to improve, i try to keep the suggestions in mind while making future video's and i would love to get some feedback on the video mentioned below:
Thanks in advance!

Ok this is not the pinnacle of artistic videography or technical prowess, but hopefully it can get by on a bit of story and a location that can't be beat. I'm not very active on this forum but I have learned a lot of technical tips from lurking in old threads so I thought I might share my recent video that I'm actually very pleased with.
I know you guys love the tech stuff so I'll let you know the expensive equipment I used: Olympus E-M10 with a Panasonic 14mm f2.5 and an iPhone 6. Unfortunately more than I would have liked ended up shot on the iPhone, but what can you do. It was just the two of us up there and the success (and safety!) on the climb was definitely not a sure thing, so I considered it a success to get as much footage out of it as I did.
The Google Earth screen capture stuff I was pleased to figure out, but it could have been executed much better. I couldn't get the application to load the full resolution images of El Capitan, so I was stuck using the web browser which was laggy (on my computer anyways) and didn't have much in the way of camera controls.
Anyways thanks for watching and hope you enjoy.
I have posted this on facebook as well. Here's all the info:
There's a nice set of s35 primes I found to go with my iscorama, and I need some extra cash to fund it, so I'm about to make a heart-tearing decision to sell my super nice anamorphic setup.
This is single focus.
Isco s8 2x, Distagon, Rangefinder, clamps and a rail mount.
Anamorphic lens – Isco s8, clean glass, no makrs/scratches/fungus, comes in original ISCORAMA SET box. Modded to infinity (I made a tutorial about how to do it here https://www.youtube.com/edit?o=U&video_id=dmMiuMFQSuU ) Barrel of the lens is scratched where all the clamps attach, you can only see it when clamps are off.
Taking lens – CY Contax Zeiss Distagon 28 2.8, with green aperture mark (german-made) in like-new condition. Glass is clean, not a mark on it.
Distagon has an adapter for micro 4/3, but it's wobbly and I would suggest getting a more expensive one if you will not use rail support.
On the front is SLRmagic rangefinder, no witness marks. I bough it from HonKong before they were available in stores, paid $500 to be one of the first people to use it. One cool thing about it is that the 77mm back can be detached, and it reveals the 82 mm threads, which is what more expensive versions have. Not sure if it's standard for all of them or if it's some sort of a pre-production batch. So you can put it closer to the front of the anamorphic adapter, and save a couple of precious millimeters to avoid vignetting. I've never experienced any image softening with this one. Images have virtually same sharpness with the adapter on/off, only slight color change due to blue coating.
Two custom made clamps with bunch of spare thumb screws – these were made specifically for the isco, so they fit it really nice. They are made of aluminum, so are lightweight, but have much thicker bodies then anything you can find on the market, including redstan stuff (tho they are not anodized and don't look as good). Clamps are real heavy-duty, I used this setup with follow focus and there's no way these would ever move/loose grip/mess up your alignment.
Isco has a black original clamp/ring mounted to the rail support bracket, it provides great support, and feels very solid. I never had any issues with this setup, and always used it on rails with follow focus.
Camera in the images is not included.
