CLC #3 – Longford and Surrounds

We ran out of biscuits, so a trip to the local shop was needed. This simple ride was extended to a 12 kilometre trip on varying surfaces just because I can.

I trialled an advanced concept (for me) in OSMO video making. The idea is to use ND filters to balance light coming in so you end up with an ISO setting of twice the frame rate. In my case an ISO of 60 and 30 frames per sec. It is supposed to give a smoother image – more film like.

Unfortunately my OSMO seems to have a problem with the use of Manual settings and the RockSteady feature either was turned off or just plain failed. Or, maybe, the ISO / Frame Rate combo was wrong. In any case, the following video the footage is juddering.

I will take some test footage this arvo and see if the normal settings are OK – to make sure it wasn’t the camera failing. I believe the footage is still watchable but, will do better next time.

PS: Silver eye migration. Looked it up and found they do indeed go to Queensland. Not to Siberia! It’s all explained here

    Once again, very enjoyable video and commentary.
    I really like seeing the “everyday” cycling routes — thanks!

      Thanks Rich. We are still “allowed” out although the advice is to remain indoors. I hope to get at least one more in before we are locked in.
