Just came back from Las Vegas to shoot a night time lapse with my wife and I just finished the editing about 30 minutes ago. A lot of people are taking advantage of the legalization of pot over there. We were shooting after midnight and many people were stoned or toking. A few even offered me tokes. How could I refuse? Maybe that's why this time lapse turned out this way.

Made a video of our recent Banff trip, mostly hiking footage from a GoPro hero 7. Plus a few still shots. https://youtu.be/tsKR_IIQZV8

Picture I took with my Samsung Galaxy S7 phone yesterday morning while having coffee at the end of our barn on our new lakefront property. I thought that the right to left color contrast and texture of the barn materials were absolutely amazing.

Cool video, seemed like you didn't get too much sun up there.

Where did you get the map animations?

Are those distances round-trip or each way?


Helmet mount for the GoPro? Seems pretty well stabilized, though you must have cut some footage where you're turning left and right to look at the surroundings.

Can you make it through most of those trails with a DSLR in hand or do you need those hiking poles in a lot of places?

I did not think us plebs with only cell phone cameras were allowed to post here. (Just kidding)

Nothing special, but free admission for locals today at our local lighthouse prompted these 2 pics. They are only poor cell phone pics but get to the point. This place is .5m from our home.

Nice, we enjoyed viewing the boats being built at the lighthouse when we went. I bought one of those high quality brass bell souvenir , which are tiny but very low cost, we use it to call each other to the table at mealtime.

Nope - didn't get any sun during the week we were there.

I do the map animations in Apple Keynote. Here's the tutorial that I used:

Hiking distances are round trip.

No helmet mount for the GoPro. I have it attached to a mini tripod and I carry it around using the tripod as a handle. I only have the GoPro on in short time segments when I want to film something. Most of the time it is off. Probably only had 30 minutes of raw video during the trip. The new GoPro is very good when it comes to stabilization.,

I had my dslr mounted on a chest harness while hiking with my GoPro in my coat pocket. So I could put the GoPro in my pocket, Detach the dslr from the harness and take a still photo. Then reattach the dslr to the harness and grab the GoPro for video.

I normally hike with a single wooden hiking staff. I couldn't take it on the plane, so I went stickless.

Ah cool.

I thought maybe there was something which would take the metadata of the videos and locate on the map on the map where it was taken.

Haven’t been around for a few years. Still retired, still camping around the country. Put away the Nikon D800 and mostly using the iPhone on a gimbal, rather than a tripod, for photography and video. Playing with the iPhone 11 pro camera now. Very impressed.

Hope everyone here has been doing well..

We spent the weekend in San Francisco and shot a time lapse video. The weather was fantastic for this time of year. It's an amazing location for photography/videography. I was surprised how crowded it was considering it's off season.

Nice.

How do you get the pull in or pull back motion?

Are you using a motion control device like rails?
