  1. For this one, I used a Zeiss 16-35 ƒ4, all mounted to a Zhiyun Crane Plus gimbal. For the night time/low light scenes in these videos, I switch to the G-Master 16-35 ƒ2.8 to help with ISO control. I prefer the little Zeiss for other times because it's so much lighter & smaller, & allows the camera to mount a little more forward of the rear gimbal motor. Makes the monitor easier to see.
  2. Some fun drone work here, but not a ton. Can't fly over 100ft in this area, so can't really even clear the buildings, but plenty enough footage to do the trick. Aerials were shot on Mavic 2 Zoom. I have a Pro camera that I swap out now and then, but chose the zoom cam for this job to stay plenty far enough off the beach and away from people. I've been buzzed on the sand before, it's not pleasant. Ground cam is a Sony a7iii. Enjoy!
  3. Aloha Dave, Yes, this does work...it's really just a fast burst rate timelapse, which works out pretty nicely. Only problem is, as @Av8Chuck mentioned, it's a TON of extra work. For stills, I mostly use my a7iii. The 24mp images are much more storage friendly, and slide through LR pretty easily, whereas the monster 42mp files from the a7riii will run you out of space ASAP and make LR crawl. If you're serious about tossing between Sony & Panasonic, then I'd say Black Friday be damned, and you just rent one of each to try out. Save a couple hundred on a sale is cool, but spending a couple thousand and becoming unhappy is by far worse. Personally, I vote for more DR over bit depth. But that's just me.
  4. This one listed @ $5.425M. When I saw it in the daytime, I thought 'Dang, this is a nice house!' Then at sunset, I was like 'DAAANGG, this is a SEXY house!!' Enjoy!
  5. Aloha gang, I had the joy of spending three full weeks in my homeland of east TN, a hop and a skip from the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. As any sane person would do whilst visiting their grandkids, I made sure to rent a cabin...across the street from the park boundary...with a great launch and landing area on the deck. Here are a couple of my favorite shots peering into the park and surrounding area. Enjoy!
  6. Nice to be back to work after a three week vacay in the Smokies. This one was fun to shoot, and it was a little funny to realize how one can get a little out of practice in three weeks! Short and sweet, cute lil cottage by the sea on the north shore. Sunrise through sunset, can be yours for a cool $2.3M 😎
  7. And another one checked off the list... I shot this home almost 2yrs ago for a different realtor. The buyer's agents (husband/wife team) are also remodeling specialists, so they handled all the redesign & renovation, then had me come reshoot the place. It was a fun low-light challenge, and also great experience to really push the M2P's dynamic range abilities in post. Enjoy!
  8. However many are needed to tell the property's story. Most MLS systems limit the count to 30 images for the realtor, but many of the properties I shoot are high end luxury, so the realtor often creates a dedicated website just for the home. In the MLS listing they add a link to the website, as opposed to an external video link, because all the media is on the one page. So, a 4,000sqft home might produce 60-70 images, but some of those are macro details, some are wide spaces. It's up to the realtor to put it to use and figure which they like, I don't have the time or energy to play photo god for them. Plus, it's agonizing when they come back with 'I don't like this photo, do you have any others?'
  9. I'm editing in FCPX, although I keep a copy of Resolve on my computer because 'one day I'm gonna diversify'...yeah...right. lol Definitely looked hard at the GH5 lineup, and went with Sony just because I was hell-bent on having a full frame camera that could also shoot solid video. But that's when I didn't think 8-bt vs. more even mattered. Oh how we continually learn costly lessons... lol. Thanks for the outside perspective. I think I'll take your wisdom and compliments, and decide to just keep rocking the Sony cams for the rest of this year, and take another look at possible upgrades sometime mid to late next year. I need to stop blowing money on gear and save up some cash for a house!
  10. Here's one I wrapped for delivery today, and I'm pretty pleased with it so far. All shot on A7Riii in custom S-log2, worked in FCPX, custom LUT, etc. Some of the slow-mo scenes required 1080p since I needed the extra frames. The biggest challenge to this project was the dark style of the interior. This is a Bali-influenced home, with deep orange wood tones, earth colored walls, and dark trim work around the doors & windows. Add to the mix immediate shade from the jungle and a bright sunny ocean view just past that, and you have a crazy contrast situation that requires a LOT of consideration of post-process to set up the scenes properly. Lighting was definitely used here, but in moderation, so as to not blow out natural shadows and such. After a lot of color work, and heaping helpings of Neat Video, I think the overall result is solid. But y'all have more eyes together than I have alone, so feel free to critique it all you like. I've nothing to lose by improving!
  11. Glad to hear it! I recently shot a super small home, no view, dogs in the house, etc using HLG3. It turned out ok, so I moved onto another, nicer luxury condo home. This time around, I shot everything twice -once in S-log, once in HLG3. While the HLG3 image came out cleaner, I found that I most definitely could NOT recover the shadow tones as much as I can in S-log. So, for me, unless it's a run & gun project, it's S-log all the time.
