go.avi footage

Hi Leigh,

I watched the go.avi test where you walked along side your garage wall. I did notice some side to side movement as you were walking. It seemed like your camera was moving towards then away from the wall.

Not knowing what your system is like (handheld like the Steadicam JR, arm suspended like the Glidecam V8 and mine, or without a gimball like the Flowpod) I can't tell where the movement comes from.

I liked the shots of the garden. You have a nice view from your house as well.

I would like to see a demo of something like you would see in a movie. Not only does it show off a good stabilized shot but it is also interesting to watch.

Thanks

Terry

Everyone is making full and interesting responses to you videos, and all you keep doing is bombarding us with loooooads of these 30mb videos. It doesn’t seem like your even taking note.

I just find this funny.

"I hope you'll check out this video and offer some constructive criticism. I look forward to your comments." - are you cutting and pasting?

obsevations of last video

Leigh,

I downloaded the last video and here are my comments, They will be in the categories of "The Good", "The Bad", and "The Ugly".

The Good: Some of your shots were interesting now.
I liked the one on the hill and going behind the bush.
I also liked the Point of View (POV) shot of the dog on the swing.
Adding music really helped.

The Bad: Your static shots (not moving) have way too much movement in them. When you are doing static shots like at the beginning it's best to use a tripod or be able to hold the stabilized camera still like it is on a tripod.
On the hill shot, as you were moving, you lost frame on your subject. Remember, your subject is why you are doing the video.
Your shots on the dog are too long. We know you love your dog but the rest of us don't know him (or her) so keep the shots shorter.

The Ugly: You have shots of you subject and dog walking in the park. One is overexposed and the next shot is OK, then back to overexposed. It almost looks like the shots were taken on different days.

There you have it. I send this with the knowledge that most of us have many improvements to make in our shooting.

In conclusion, the video we want our shots to look like is found at the following web site:http://www.codydeegan.com/demo.html and click on "Contrast". I would give you Charles' site but it's way too good and I don't want you to get discouraged.

Terry

Heh Leigh, I think your last post helps prove Richards point! Are you really after criticism/feedback, or just phishing for sales?

Hi Richard,

I don't understand what you said.

You mean 30mb files too bad? Someone told me that they like high quality video instead of small window video. From what I understand that only full screen high quality video can demonstrate the shakeness. I don't think small tiny window means anything. Just my view really.

Regards
Leigh

I wasn’t necessarily referring to the size of the files, but the volume of them.

It seems that you’re just posting one after the other without conversing with the people who are providing in-depth and constructive reviews.
This was shown in your last posting, as James concurred.
