New E5 Video

I tried another Video today, this time using the ZD 12-60 attached to the E5.
Following on from Barrie's panning, II thought I would get more adventurous than I was when making my first movie.

I tried hand-held and was surprised how much easier it was than my first attempt. I have included panning and zooming and they came out reasonably well.

I made the mistake of using centre weighted exposure rather than ESP. Still, thats what this is all about - to learn!

Comments as always are welcome.

Re: New E5 Video

Interesting
Initial thoughts

I wonder if using manual exposure would give a more consistant result - ie set the exposure for each shot.

ditto for focus - it did not re focus as the image was zoomed in.


Is this type of movie camera more suited for moving stills rather than movie sequences - ie a movie shot of the dog doing something for a few seconds amongst a collection of still pictures of the dog.

Just a few thoughts

I would like to see a series of movie shots of birds in flight

Thanks for showing

Thanks for your reply Derek

Ian replied to me on the dpNow forum and advised that, unlike the pen, does not re-focus on zoom. This isuue could be addressed in three ways:-
1. As Ian suggested to me to tap the shutter button as I zoom.
2. Go for a smaller aperture (this was shot at f7.1).
3. Make a series of video clips which are joined together to avoid frames that are oof (This video is made up of 3 different video recordings).

The role in which this camera will play a part will not require me to do much zooming as I intend to use it at the Oysterbed site next year to record the tern and gull chicks growing up and being fed. On the basis of what I have seen so far, I have ordered a Sennheiser MKE 400 Professional Microphone (a shotgun or directional microphone) to fit in the flash mount.

I shall try and get some BIF images today/tomorrow.

The point in doing these tests is to explore the potential, find the weaknesses and see if they can be addressed. I have learnt a lot from these exercises and hopefully they will help others.
