    Let the (constructive) criticism begin. Bad timing and angle towards ship. Didn't get as close as i wanted to but learned a couple of things for next time.
    1 - Need to be smoother with turns
    2 - When turning too fast don't try to slow it down in iMovie cause you can see it stutter
    3 - Don't use auto settings? This was with Polar Pro ND-16 filter on auto. Not a photographer so was hesitant to completely ruin my first chase.

    What other suggestions for better video can you give?

    Nice vid, i would use ATTI mode for yawing around, seems so much more smoother, a little shove and let it yaw naturally. Time scene changes to music changes.
    Yup seen you give up chasing the ship haha, oh well next time ;)

    Thanks.
    Yes i gave up, i was already pretty far out and it was a little more windy than my weather app said it was supposed to be so i was nervous about that and from where I was i couldn't see the ship till it got to the bridge so no time to get ready, it was already late and i had to do the warm up thing (didn't want to leave it on and drain the battery waiting) and got a late start. Good thing I didn't leave it on, ship was over a half hour later than usual.

    Yeah music - I hate that part. I find it so difficult to find free music on youtube. I mean theres plenty of choices but nothing you've ever heard before so where do you start? Do you know where else to get the music if i wanted to add it before posting. I had put a different song in there from my library but it wouldn't let me post it (copyrights). Will definitely try again and get it better. practice practice practice.
