This is my first test with the device, exploring its features such as Timelapse, Motion Timelapse as well as how it stablized the footages. Few point to consider: Filmed in 4K Graded in post (sorry my grading skill wasn't as good as my photoshop skill) I didn't do any Ninja-Walking move in order to demonstrate how much the footages got improve from normal conditions.

Working with freelancers: what I’ve learned

By | Thoughts | No Comments
Living in this digital age which knowledge flourish and the stream of new ideas flow like the Mekong river, I have to admitted that it is impossible to be the best at everything.

I'm barely able to keep up with one creative field alone, not considering working multi or integrated disciplines.

I have to buy from BHphoto for upcoming wedding shoot. Why not LA-EA4? Because it uses it own AF mechanism rather than the...
