  1. @anonim Good points. I've seriously been considering purchasing a Zhiyun Crane Plus (was actually going to buy one tomorrow) but have had the same reservations that you've just pointed out; they're clumsy and cumbersome to use. Having to take the camera on and off constantly when travelling would no doubt make shooting a lot less enjoyable. I think I'll have to reconsider my options. Hi @tellure, thanks for the feedback. I agree, some of the train shots are definitely too long. I was trying to match the shots with the music and wasn't able to figure out a way to switch shots without it looking out of place. I probably need to experiment more with different edits. As for the light leaks, they were all added in post. Hi @mercer, really appreciate the encouraging words. Makes me want to get off my slack-ass and shoot some more! I used two overlays; one was film reel footage with dust/scratches and the other was an adjustment layer to add noise and a vignette. Nearly all the clips were shot with the 14-42mm kit lens. I think two of the night shots were taken with the Panasonic 25mm F1.7. Thanks for the camera suggestions. The Olympus IBIS sure does look attractive. How did you find the image quality of the E-M5ii and how do you think it rates against the 1080 quality of the G7? I don't mind shooting in 1080 but I haven't been all that thrilled with 1080 on the G7.
  2. Hi @anonim, thanks for your kind feedback! I'm really glad you liked it. Overall, I think the vintage look worked out ok in this case. I'd like to go back to Japan later this year and hopefully get some clean footage like yours (beautiful place and shots by the way). Do you find the IBIS in the GH5 good enough for getting smooth footage? I'm wondering if it's worth upgrading from the G7 or getting a gimbal instead.
  3. Hi, I've been a longtime lurker on this forum but never had a reason to contribute as I have next to zero experience in film making and cameras despite being quite interested in them. I guess you could call me an armchair enthusiast; I watch and read a lot of stuff online but haven't really acted on any of it. That said, last year I went on a trip to Japan and set myself the task of recording a bunch of footage with the intent to produce some kind of "travel" video clip. I soon realised that the process wasn't as easy as I initially thought it was going to be as I struggled to get any smooth stable shots. Just about everything I shot was marred with micro jitters and vomit inducing shakes (I was travelling light and did not bring a tripod). In an attempt to salvage my barely usable inconsistent clips, I did what all good amateurs do and threw on an excessive amount of overlays and light leaks to try and create the overly used "old school vintage film look". I know it's probably below the standards of this forum but here's the result.
