First amateur (music) video made with K-r

Hey all, while I consider myself first and foremost a photographer, I still like videography, and yesterday, I made this video on my K-r very quickly to brush up on my skills:

The focusing needs to be a bit faster, and definitely put that camera on a tripod. Still pretty cool, though!

Thanks Adam! these videos were definitely spur-of-the-moment, and the focusing is intended to be slow, fitting the mood. Thanks for the feedback!

I'd agree with Adam, although I'm guilty of videoing without a tripod sometimes!!

Been playing with the video a lot on my K-R too, and still very much learning myself. I would say if you have the software then maybe up the contrast a bit to bring out the difference in colours, cos I find the footage straight from the camera can come out a bit pale. It doesn't help that we can't stop the ISO from bouncing around but that's just one of the limitations we have to deal with on this cam!

Yeah, that's true... I so rarely shoot video that it doesn't matter much to me, though! If I had known that the K-01 ha better-than-K-5 image quality, as well as full manual video mode for slightly more than a K-r, I would have gotten it in a heartbeat, though... However, I bought the K-r back in August, back when the K-01 didn't exist
