Cool video with fun music!
I like the beginning, but the pans become too quick and too similar.
The walking along the path, and the computer stabilization is too jumpy.
The still images at the end would have been better used throughout the video instead of tacking them on the end.
Next time I would pan closer to the foliage or other objects, and go slower overall.
Great to see some K5 video!

Thanks for your reply and comments Lauren! Will try out some more and look for some ways to stabilize the cam better and def. pan less plus trying to get some wild "actors" included.

Thanks for sharing.

Beautiful - Surprised by how similar the forest looks to our New Zealand native forests. We are lucky to not have snakes or poisonous insects - although the sand flys on the west coast can be a real nuisance!

I'm no video expert but FWIW: Like the close up shots - maybe more would be better? Also I thought it might be better with less pans and also pan slower (kind of blurs as it pans). Switching between fixed position video shots a bit more maybe.

You have inspired me to try and shoot a video in the bush! Keep it up.
