My first filming-project with my K-7

Hi,

Just accomplished my first filming-project, itエs a trailer of a flyfishing media-blog I just created together with a few friends of mine.

[YT]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=veMIfsPQBGo&ap=%2526fmt%3D22[/YT]

For this Video I used the following equipment:

- Pentax K-7
- DA 10-17mm
- DA 16-45mm
- M 50mm 1,4
- Tamron 90mm Macro
- FA* 300mm 4,5
- Manfrotto xprob190 + 701 HDV Fluid Head

I hope you liked it and I would really love to hear your opinions and some suggestions for improvement !

regards,
Marcus

Very nicely done. That's some pretty dramatic music there.

Nice work Marcus, it looks like your K-7 was very close to the water in the last part of the video.

Marcus that was not a nice work, it is a terrific work. One of the best I have seen.
I was amazed.

Feel free to share/make a tutorial on how to achieve these stunning movies with k-7. (Technique, tips, software etc)

I was distracted the first time I watched it so I watched it a second time and I would say it's the best video I have seen done with the K-7 so far.

Thank you so much for these stunning commendations, never expected this!

That really remunerates these countless hours at the water and incites me to work even harder on my next project!

@jogiba: Yes, my K-7 is used to water ;-)... Situations like at 03:08 are quite common when youエre shooting flyfishing videos. But I never had any problems with that Camera, even at -10ーC it performed great last weekend. Great Outdoor-Cam!

@netuser: Iエm planing some Video- and Photo-Tutorials in the next future on fly-focus.blogspot.com. Iエll post the links to the forum...

Kudos for a well shot clip. Music was a bit over the top, but still, it's a really superb effort.

That was amazing! How many hours of shooting, editing and what software did you have/use? Which card did you record on?

It's projects like yours that inspires many here.

This is a stunning video all the way around. I don't think I could find one way to improve this at all. On the other hand, I may just watch it a couple of more times and take a few notes.

My wife doesn't really like fishing in any way shape or form, but even she was impressed by this video when I showed it to her.

Cheers.

@ Clicker: Thanks! Difficult to count the hours of shooting, but I never go fishing without my K-7, and Iエm fishing quite a lot... This Trailer contains some of the best shots I got over the past half year of flyfishing. Shooting flyfishing-videos is hard to compare with other motives, because you canエt tell the fish to take, rise or jump ;-). For editing I used Magix Video Deluxe 16 (canエt afford Premiere or something like that) but Iエm quite satisfied and itエs great for newbies like me. I redorded on silver Panasonic SD HC FullHDVideo Cards...

@ Andrew: Thank you too! Great to hear that you and your wife liked my fishing-video. Unfortunately there are many fishing-idiots out there, therefore fishing got a very bad reputation, my intention is to correct this view of fishing in the future. Thatエs why commendations, of people who despise fishing, mean a lot to me.

Marcus,

this was a really wonderful video. It would seem to many to be easy to shoot and edit this type of work.... but it isn't. I think you did a wonderful job bringing the viewer into the video. I'm not a fly fisherman, or a fisherman of any sort, but you effectively had me hooked throughout the entire flick.

Well done! Like others have said, perhaps the best K7 video I have seen to date. Motivates me to get of my keesta' and start doing something with the K7 video feature myself.

Thanks a ton for sharing this little gem.

Stephen
