I didn't see this.
Thank you for your concern Catherine.
I had a virus, something you share between associates at work :)
I'm glad it's over though ;)

Thanks,
Bryce
You're welcome.
I think it's not that big issue to make one, if your a bit handy.
I'm not handy, but I have a younger brother who helps me out whenever I ask :)
Still, if you ask my wife I have too much of these "things" strewn all over the place ;)

Oh Geir,
Don't worry, i'm sure every other person on this forum is in the same boat as you with regards to having a lot of "stuff". Fortunately i consider myself to be quite handy, so i tend to make a lot of stuff i can't get, or afford.
Regards,
Bryce

Geir, hope you are feeling better. That's fantastic video. I could almost get dizzy watching the drone flying over those cliffs good looking straight down into the ocean. My only thought was my God I hope it doesn't get in the water. Some of my favorite shots were the ones of the water spray being whipped up by the wind. Doesn't all that wind affect your phantom 3? I must say that after watching your footage, and those of Kevin and some of the others that are using drones I can definitely see one in my future. A question on your window clamp, which camera are you using that wig? I am filming with a Canon X F 300 and I was wondering if that would be strong enough. You surely do you live in a wild and beautiful place. Someday I would like to visit there. Great job. Bob

Re: "The Gale Force Coast" by Geir Inge B. Brekke - Uwol#36

Thank you for nice comments Bob.
I have an old Canon XLH1 camera and i think it's a bit too heavy/big for my car window tripod.
In this video I have used my Canon 5D Mark3 camera with a 105mm objective.
It worked fine, the shaking you can see in the video is in fact my car shaking as the wind take grip :)
If you ever come to Norway you have to say in front, so we can meet.
I would be happy to show you around. I'm sure Trond will too.

Re: "The Gale Force Coast" by Geir Inge B. Brekke - Uwol#36

Geir, what I always like about your films is that you take the viewer on a journey. You invite them in and whether the plan works or not (no toads found on the first attempt a few rounds back) there is a relatable story. There was a good variety of shots that helped build this story, and all the elements came together to make it a very engaging film. Even small details were great, the shot of one bird remaining when all others flew away, the sliver of rainbow in an otherwise monochromatic shot, and water being whipped up by the winds.

I, like Cat, did find a couple of the camera moves on the drone distracting. I think the issue is that everything else is smooth - the Phantom moves fairly smoothly, and the turning of the gimbal is smooth enough, but when the start or end of the gimbal turning is too sudden it stands out and takes something away from the viewer enjoying the beauty of the shot. I haven't used the controller so I don't know how sensitive it is, and I'm not aware of settings to smooth out user input. I have also seen abrupt moves in many other videos so I'm thinking it's challenging. Still great footage, and it's funny how something seemingly so small could make a difference to the end result.

Really enjoyed your entry, and thanks for sharing the ferocity of the wind, and the breathtaking landscape. Was that the same Lighthouse used in the fun round?

Great Bruce, noe you're a true norwegian 😊

Thank you Andrew. I great ly appreciate your feedback.

I'm not quite sure what happens when the recordings get a little unclear.
It happens often when I swing/turn the drone turns fast.
I Wonder If it fan help me out to put on a filter (Grey or uv)?

Yes, it is the same lighthouse as in the fun game.
Perhaps I should pick an other location this time, but I wanted to show how people cope with the elements.
It's a great plate to relax, surfing and kite surfing.
