Took my Panasonic GH1 and new tripod over to the park yesterday afternoon and shot an hour or so of people in the snow. It was cold. There are a few rather over-long panning shots, for which I apologise, but I wanted to see how smooth the tripod could pan horizontally and – as you’ll see – vertically. It’s not going to win any prizes, but I was quite happy. Everything was shot in Creative Movie mode, on manual, using the little histogram, because I’ll need to use that when doing talking-head shots for work, and I needed the practice.
Below is the view from where the Folk Festival beer tent is, looking towards the main stage. I must take an identical one in July, when there’ll be 5000 people sprawled out on the grass in front of me. And a pint of Festival Ale in my unmittened hand.
