Review of the Aputure Amaran AL-M9 LED Light

Gary Detonnancourt

Aputure AL-M9 Review This little light is very small and portable coming in at only 140 g. Don’t let its size fool you, because this light is big on performance with 9 led lights built in and up to 9 steps of power. This light is useful for vloggers or anyone making videos on the go. Plus I like to use it with my webcam for making videos and live streaming.

Brown’s Tract Inlet Sunrise Time-lapse

Gary Detonnancourt

On Day 3 of my Adirondack trip I photographed this sunrise time-lapse.  This is also where I learned that I should bring a second camera and tripod when shooting time-lapses because there were a lot of great shots happening behind me that I couldn't shoot because my camera was busy shooting this time-lapse.

Canon 5D Mark IV Still Images from Video

Gary Detonnancourt

In this post, I want to show some still images I've taken from 4K video shot on the Canon 5D Mark IV.  These images are 8.8 megapixel captures and I think they look just as good as still images from the same camera.  I've done this sort of thing with the GH4 and the images look good but I think they are even better from the 5D Mark IV.  These images were captured with Adobe Premiere Pro and no image processing was applied.  Check them out and let me know what you think.

ZhiYun Smooth-C/R Review and timelapse videos created by the Panasonic GH4. 

In this video, I review the create some test footage from the ZhiYun Smooth C/R 3-axis gimbal.  All of the stabilized video was shot on the iPhone 6S Plus and the time-lapse images were done on the Panasonic GH4.  The video was edited with Adobe Premiere Pro CC.


Wildlife Video

Gary Detonnancourt

Trustom Pond Wildlife Refuge, RI  You can view this video in HD or 4k.

I've been experimenting with a new lens for my Panasonic GH4, it's the Panasonic 14-140 F/3.5-5.6, and so far I think the lens is a great all-around lens.  It's small, lightweight and sharp, perfect for traveling.  I shot these videos with autofocus which is kind of a no-no in videography but I thought the lens did pretty well with these fast moving ird.  

I've been thinking about doing more wildlife videography and this is like a test video.
