    I always hesitate to comment something that is so widely explored... so, as my best (and nothing special clever) I'd say that maybe the best answer is to try as much as possible solutions. It really depends of type of shots, usage, scenario, possible control over circumstances, monitoring solution, decision about AF or MF etc...  Except for walking shots, I think that GH5 IBIS is safely enough for near all creative tasks if you have ultra wide lens in front (I had no it in above case – but I found that in some other occasions I had success even with running with 10mm m43 lens). Although gimbals are so popular, and with the reason, they are, of course, clumsy... I think that we have to have at least two cameras for comfortable usage of gimbal, one of which might be permanently tied with gimbal - constant putting on/off camera with balancing is not something that I enjoy.
    Actually, I'm in process of selling my Zhiyun Crane 2... Even if I have no prospect of usage of gears just for, say, two months, I'm selling without regret such expensive and fast-loosing-value technical adds... Who knows what will be the next... Olympus with even better Ibis? Or DJ Ronin S mini? 
    What I find the most important is - impression that you have imagination to resolve tasks and problems in the creative way, which is power that is impossible to buy!

    Nice stuff stv, I thought the film effects and leaks were well done.  Especially when the leaks were timed to the little bursts of static in the music (unless those were added in post?).  I agree with anonim about the structure of the train travel breaking up the stops for travel moments was really effective.  There were a few train station shots that lasted a bit too long IMO but overall well done.

    Yeah I enjoyed this very much. I love a good vintage look so that was also appreciated. What kind of overlays did you use? Also what lens/es did you shoot with? Obviously the G7 is working good enough for you, but if you’re looking to upgrade, I’m sure the IBIS of the G85/G9/GH5 would definitely help a lot with any shakes you’re encountering. And if you want some rock solid video, the Olympus IBIS is even better than Panasonic’s. I had the E-M5ii for a spell last year and I almost had to try really hard to get shaky footage.
    Anyway, if this is what you are capable of as an “armchair enthusiast,” I can’t wait to see what you do when you get up from that comfy chair.

    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.

    Maybe it will be nice to share fast unpretentious vacation-shots around the world... At least I'm always glad to see them, so that's mine last one.

    Thanks! I like your core concept very much - actually, I found it quite inspiring... continuous train-traveling transition and than stop to pay attention to something new and important. Filckering damage effects and vigneting are so nice incorporate in global fluidity; leaks, I'd say, in less extent but also are often adding some mysterious mood as, say, connecting flash holes in memory (?) Micro jitters are enough controlled and even contribute to effects... All in all, for my eyes and taste, I can say just: thanks and bravo, nice concept and inspiring, very consistent exercise.
