Collection from my autumn 2013 flights
Gorgeous work sir!! Could i ask what camera you are using and what settings?
thanks in advance!!
thanks; its a GoPro Hero3 Black set at 1080p 50fps either wide or medium
Lovely footage. I love watching other peoples videos, you can learn such a lot from them. Great flying.
What is the advantage of running at 50fps?
Shooting at 50 fps allows you more scope to slow the footage down.
Thank you for the info.
Thanks so much! I have a hero+ black so i should be good at 1080 at 60fps... or 720 at 100fps!! i think the ability to do the slow motion really gives them that epic cinematic look!
I always go for the highest resolution where possible, I throw 1080p videos up on my 50 inch LCD and they look great. I haven't tried 2.7k because I'd have to have FCP resize for my all the output formats I need, also it hurts in terms of file size for what appears to be very little gain.
One trick I use is also to programme my futaba with half input, so turns etc can be slowed, although I rarely need to use that now as I have got used to the controls it handy for slow flying effects.
Also the old addage that lots of boring practice makes perfect is very true with quad filming; I have hours of me flying round football posts keeping them in the centre of the screen and practicing climbing, spinning turns - if you go to 1:07 on this video https://vimeo.com/73067558 you can see how effective a climbing turn can be - also a pivot on point example works quite well at 0:43 here https://vimeo.com/73031356
As my friends in TV production tell me, its better to get things right in the original filming than to try to fix them with post production effects.
