music video posted

Just uploaded my first music video shot with K-30 (audio recorded on the amazing OP-1). not sure what this will show a prospective buyer but there are some clips where the quality is evident.

Anyway, it was better than the K-5 (which I did own for a few weeks) in that the exposure was completely controllable which makes all the difference for many types of shots.

On the other hand, for my next video I *need* the mic input which the K-30 lacks. So... oh well

That is some really fantastic work on your part. The cinematography and editing were both extremely well done.

Was your shake reduction on? It seemed like there was a bit of jello in a couple of the shots.

Interesting shots! Looks extremely tough to make.
btw, isn't it best to use a completely different unit for sound recording? Like the hand-holdable ones you can buy at musical instrument shops.

thank you for the comments!

shake reduction was mostly on, but not always, was suppose to be 'hand-held-y' sometimes. and yes,external sound is better so you're right, maybe its not such a minus to not have the mic input. it's a great camera!

Thanks! Great work. I am affraid I still see the "jelly" issue with the video when the camera is moving. I don't know whether to buy the K-30, because I primarily intend to use it for videos. Own so much Pentax glass.. er
