Marblehead Lighthouse

Postby Dave McElderry » Sat Jun 27, 2020 1:54 pm

We've been doing our best to stay safe but get out regularly in wide open spaces. Took a drive up to Lake Erie this week and played around with a new gimbal. Here's a short vid of our stop at the Marblehead lighthouse.

Dave that was cool. I swear by gimbals. They are a must have for me. What gimbal did you end up using? I have the smooth Q that I like a lot. I am looking for a DLSR gimbal for heaver loads.

Decided on a Movi Cinema Robot, Sidd. Sure does smooth out these shaky old hands of mine. Good alternative to carrying around a tripod, or monopod. Got it at 25% off, which did help the pocketbook.

Very cool Dave. I have never used a Movi but it looks like a real quality product. I record with the Filmic Pro app and I really like the quality of the shots recorded mixed with a gimbal. Now if I record without a gimbal I really dislike end end result. I have also been messing around with a Ulanzi anamorphic lens smartphone and really like the footage. But the stuff you posted looks really smooth. You are better at the up and down pan than I am. Must be the Movi has a slower pan.

Using Filmic Pro too Sidd. I don’t have anything to compare to, but the Filmic Pro integrates with the Movi and there are settings for how slow or fast the gimbal responds to your movements. I assume most gimbals have such settings???

They do it is just that filmic pro does not support mine.

I see. OTOH, I’m fascinated by your drone footage and all the possibilities that drones present. So much cool technology, so little time and money .

Dave I think you would really enjoy flying a drone. For me it captures such a different aspect that I enjoy it. There are some deals out there too. The DJI Mavic mini is reasonably priced and small enough to tote around.

That’s how we feel when we do these little day trips. Glad to bring you along!

Cool footage Dave and smooth! I researched gimbals a few years ago and almost got one. My Dad and I went out on a charter on Lake Erie. So odd to be out in the middle or almost middle and can't see land. About 30 minutes after anchoring a huge storm hit. Torrential rain and lightning. We had to sit on the floor in the rain all the way back. I was scared and my Dad said he was too but didn't want to tell me on the ride back. Being a Mom I kept thinking about my daughter. I would love to go out on Erie again only on a sunny dry day!

This time of year is good to get out in nature and stay a distance away from others. We've gone to the local watershed center. Not the same as your Lake Erie.
