Ya, okay. Me again. Better get used to seeing my mangled head. I’m not entirely sure why, but for some reason, I am LOVING this motion study experiment. Yes, it’s my job now, and perhaps that has something to do with it, but I finally feel like I’m all in. I’m smoking now, watching old French films and acting like a total douche whenever anyone asks me about any movie made after 1958. Don’t even mention Michael Bay or I will lose it.
This was my first real chance to use the Feiyutech G6 Plus gimbal. This is my first gimbal experience, so I don’t have much to compare it to, but all I can say is it works. The gimbal comes in a slim case which fits perfectly in the front side of my trusty Atlas Athlete. The battery lasts WAY longer than I need and I can control the gimbal from their app if I so choose. Most importantly, the gimbal works with every camera I’m using for my motion needs. I’ve narrowed to mostly the Fuji XT2 and the GoPro Hero 6. I am contemplating a look at Sony equipment, after a short training session with a friend who is sponsored by Sony. What I like about the Sony is the full frame impact on the look as well as all the small features that Sony has added for motion shooters including their audio options. Now, am I going to go drop a lot of money on new gear? No. The Fuji stuff is really solid, and in fact is way more solid than my actual filmmaking abilities. Finally, the gimbal balances very quickly, especially with the Go Pro. I’ll be using this gimbal a lot more on my upcoming Blurb trips as well as many of my adventures.
Anyhoo. I feel like I need a subject now. Like you. What are you doing? I also feel like I could make a short doc now. And I might. What I haven’t solved, only because it’s a technical mess as a lone ranger, is the two camera interview. Ugh. I feel sick. One long, one short, audio, cuts. Can’t we all just get along? I’ve been so busy I haven’t really had time to dive into much, so you are getting me at a baseline level. I will improve the interview portion. The camera position is too low and my audio is tinny due to hard surfaces, but you can hear me, so bombs away.
Sit back and watch me trend.
