Memorial Day at the Ocean

Postby sidd finch » Thu May 30, 2019 12:58 pm

Took the ANAFI out to the Ocean for the memorial Day weekend. It was really windy so I was hesitant to try and fly, but the ANAFI was really smooth. I was pretty impressed. You can see towards the end that there was a rainstorm coming which looked pretty ominous.

I was also testing out the GoPro 7 with its Hypersmooth setting I was also pretty impressed with that too. Comments always welcomed.

Thank you Steve.

I was really excited to go to the ocean, but when we got there is was so windy and freezing cold I only stayed for about a 1/2 hour. The video looks like it would be nice...maybe I need one of those on screen graphics to should the wind speed and temp. :conf:

Sure couldn't tell that the drone was fighting the wind. It was pretty comfortable from here in my armchair :) . Nice job. I hope you were out of it when that storm got there.

Thanks Dave. I was really surprised that it was so smooth. I need to make a plan to go back and get more footage. Luckily it did not start the downpour until we were safely in the restaurant enjoying breakfast... :)

Really beautiful footage, Sidd. Brings back how much I miss the ocean. I was right there with that kid at the end, waiting for the waves to bubble over my toes!

Interesting how the approach of a gull, the shadow of it, affected the light. Really nice following the big birds too. Does this show a significant segment of Half Moon Bay?

Thanks Treetops and Pazzzzz

Does this show a significant segment of Half Moon Bay?


Yes it does. The beach I was at is located approx in the middle of Half Moon Bay. In the area located north where the storm clouds are forming towards the end of the video is Mavericks Beach where the hold the famous Mavericks Challenge big wave surf competition which is very popular with surfers from around the world. It is also pretty close to where GoPro corporate headquarters are located.

Some trivia: The ocean temp are warmer in the winter when the current is coming up from the south and colder in the summer when the current is coming from the north.

Thanks Bob. The drone is so light I thought for sure it would be knocked around. But glad it was not.
