I have been searching for an affordable portable motorized camera slider for quite some time now. Two reasons. First of all working with a slider isn’t easy. It takes a lot of practice and it can be time consuming to get a smooth shot. Secondly, a motorized slider allows me to create panning shot without having to have a second person supporting me. I can be in front of the camera while the slider does its thing.
While there are several sliders out there, most are quite expensive. The SliderMini from SMARTTA however fits the bill. Please check out my review, and if you are interested in picking up one yourself, please use this link here: https://igg.me/at/SliderMini/x/19569642
Let’s assume you just bought the new GoPro HERO7 Black and you would like to know how to set it up for filmmaking. I got you covered. In this video I go through the video settings, explain what they mean and how to adjust them. I hope this helps!
I finally upgraded my GoPro Hero5 Black, which I wasn’t too crazy about. The image and audio quality wasn’t great for a US$400 action camera and the features weren’t that exciting either. The improvements and new features of the GoPro HERO7 Black however won me over again. In this video I am testing the new GoPro HERO7 Black and compare it to the GoPro Hero5 Black – just in case you are still undecided whether you should get one.
How to best setup the Sony a7III for filmmaking you ask? Well, here you go! After I spent one week with the a7III, testing all its features, I am finally done setting it up for shooting video. Watch the video in which I go through most of the menu and explain the different settings and why I setup the camera the way I did. Take it as a starting point and tweak your setup further to your linking. Have fun!
I bought the Sony a7III and I couldn’t be happier!
The Sony a6500, which I used for the last year, is still a great camera. I will keep it as a back-up camera. However, when it comes to slow-motion and low light, the a6500 isn’t performing as good as I was hoping it would. I was also missing the full-frame look in my photos that I fell in love with back in the days when I was shooting with the Canon 5D.
As a hybrid shooter, the Sony a7III ticks all the boxes. And for US$2000 it is simply the best camera on the market. Watch my review for more details of the camera and how it performs against the Sony a6500.
These are my favorite settings for shooting video with my Sony a6500. If you want to get cinematic looking footage without the need for color grading your footage extensively, try setting up your camera like I did.
I was lucky enough to grab one of the first GoPro Hero5 Black cameras when I was in Pattaya, Thailand, recently. I took the opportunity to review it and check on the audio quality of the in-camera microphones, image stabilization, low-light capabilities, etc.
