    Hi, a shirt clip of me learning to use the camera, I can't wait for my gimble to arrive , no post processing and the quality is not a sharp as the original, but I've leant that to up load to you tube or Vimeo and keep true HD quality others post process it away from mpeg4 . Still got lots to learn and may purchase a post edit programme like Adobe .

    Nice video, is that done on iMovie on iPad and uploaded straight from there?

    What do you mean by "I've leant that to up load to you tube or Vimeo and keep true HD quality others post process it away from mpeg4"? I'm having problems with losing alot of quality when uploading....

    There's so many mpeg 4 standards. youtube has a real problem in compression. So they advise using the advanced options.

    have a look [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=21EQLm7mfbI[/youtube]

    hopefully this'll help

    Hi, yes it was done on a ipad4 on iMovie, in relation to getting the best there is so much on the web about tips to achieve hd quality , it all depends on so many variations and the software used. I'm think I'm going to get adobe premier, it has good reviews.
    I did get one tip from a friend who works for the BBC as a cameraman ,is that the only filter he uses is a decent polariser as all other edits or filters for bluer sky's etc is all now done post production.

    That's all basic stuff, just using the hd resolution and mp4 (h.264) nothing at all about how to get the best quality etc. doesn't even mention bitrate once.

    btw.. go and have a play with adobe premiere pro. there's a free 30 day trial of it from a download. it's a decent bit of kit too.

    This is the upload to you tube, I can't spot a great deal of difference to my untrained eye?

    I must be honest, I don't normally care much for Vision videos due to their jumpy and twitchy nature.

    However, you flew this beautifully, I love how you composed the video. The music you used and I loved how this was edited on the iPad. Brilliant well done.

    Thanks, I feel I'm improving each week and believe me there was lots of twitchy footage left out, It's stock gimble, and I have ordered a rotopixel after seeing good examples of video footage on here and the web.
    It's great learning and having a new challenge, to fly and take respectable amateur video and have learnt a great deal about shots from here, thinking I'd cut that there, or that's a great shot and pan of a subject and so on.
    Onwards and upwards lol (as long as I don't ditch it In the water or hit a tree, had a few bum clenchers where the trees seem to reach out) :D
