I filmed this short video by my Samsung S5 smartphone at Melbourne in January 2015. Why I was there? work? filming wedding videos? I was going there with my family, three of us, driving around, enjoying our time. I wish I can go there at least once a year.
Melbourne is one of the best cities in the world, no doubt!! In my point of view, as a tourist and a guy who lives in Sydney, I found Melbourne is so lovely in every aspect. People, food, transportation, tennis, beaches (not the weather though, Sydney is slightly better :-))…
I set my phone in slow mo. It turned out really cool (I reckon). Enjoy.
Here a list of my basic gears.
DSLR: Canon 5D Mark II. Still love this camera, although 5D Mark III is my next target.
Lenses: Carl Zeiss 50mm 1.4, Canon 70-200 f2.8IS, Canon 16-35 F2.8, these cover most of the range. My next target: 100mm macro.
Tripod: Gitzo basalt GT2940LVL, not top of the range but very solid and not too heavy to carry.
Monopod: Manfrotto 561BHDV. 80% of the time my DSLR is attached to this excellent monopod. I did try to use a handheld rig to film weddings, but it just doesn’t work for my shooting style.
Stabilizer: Glidecam HD2000, perfect match of 5D Mark II.
On camera mic: Rode Stereo VideoMic Pro, good quality, tiny, and made in Australia!!
