    that indeed is very strange, somehow the Zoom is causing interference. Possibly it generates an electromagnetic pulse or something but I'm no expert on such things. However you managed to find your solution! :D

    Although older I would definitely check out the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G70. It's more or less the same hardware as the GH4 and there's a "hack" (basically a software setting) that allows recordings over 30 minutes in 4k (most bridge and compact cameras are capped to 30 minutes for tax reasons)

    I've worked with GH4 and GH5 footage before and it didn't have this issue on a tripod so it's not a brand wide phenomenon. It is almost certainly caused by the camera itself because it seems like a constant frequency so that usually rules out wind and vibrations. It could be the OIS has an error causing it to somehow vibrate while being off. Also, I doubt it that this is something that Panasonic wouldn't have fixed in the last +/- 5 years since the Panasonic HC-V180 was released.

    Creative use of a single very wide angle viewpoint with the crops. I'd crop into e.g. the singer a little sooner, for example around 59 seconds he starts to sing and you crop in a second later. Feels a bit weird to me. Don't really mind the effects but not too keen on the old film look. Would in that case rather prefer a decent black and white image instead. In terms of replacements there's a few options to consider. I am going to assume that you still want to go with a single static...

    Yep I've had that in te back of my mind and I can't talk from much experience but I did watch some e-sports footage and generally enjoyed it more if it was well constructed in its aim to entertain. I felt that lacking here.

    I'm assuming this will come off blunt but since you asked: I didn't like this. I think it's just footage of someone playing a game which might be mildly interesting in other people that are familiar with that game but not really to a broader audience. When I would look at it from the perspective of someone who plays the game I don't feel this brings anything spectacular, interesting or worthwhile I wouldn't have seen a million times over either in similar videos or by, you know, actually...

    I get the feeling that tutorial you're working with is a bit backwards. The way to do it properly as far as I know is to just select the "Audio MP3" profile. From the official VLC help pages: What the author of that tutorial is doing is using the profile to export to h264 and then adjusting the settings so it only contains audio instead of the more usual "audio + video" and then saving it into an MP3 extension. That's also why I suspect they select WAV. All the other options will ...

    For this level of work I feel 250 sounds fair or even cheap. If you'd work on the camera movement e.g. by always using a tripod or gimbal and added a bit of contrast and pop to the colourgrading, you could easily upgrade it to 400 excluding VAT (I'm assuming 250 is also ex VAT) I do hope this is just 250 for a day of shooting and that the total edit comes to around 600-700 otherwise I'd say you're undercutting the market. No matter how new you are, don't under cut the market. Sure...

    My pleasure! Just echoing the advice I hear others give, no personal experience with it, don't want to take all the credit here ;) Hope you have a great day too!

    OK, well Hitfilm Express is often coined as a good easy starter in terms of software.

    Sorry to hear it. It's hard to diagnose this based on the picture you took of your monitor. What camera did you use to shoot this on? What software did you use to play this back in? What video editing software do you have? Are other/older videos from the same camera looking better in the same software on the same hardware as you notice this problem on?

    Great to hear it. Honestly I do a lot of great shooting on the P20 Pro. It's not the camera I'm taking to my clients when I need to do a film gig but when I'm on the go and I see an opportunity to shoot some stock footage it so far hasn't let me down yet.

    That's a great plan. Future proof is unfortunately not something that's easily done these days, especially not on a budget but nothing is impossible and I think there's a few options especially when you are willing to go second hand. I would stay away from any DSLR at this point though. I kind of would like to say to just keep using a phone but perhaps upgrade that one to something with a more high end camera like a Huawei P30 (Or P20) Pro (Huawei has partnered with Leica for their camera stuff...

    Impossible but it is possible for some companies to track down these cut up copies and then you could have a lawyer send a cease and desist letter. Might even be possible to do that through the company that finds the fakes. YouTube already does that with music. Not sure if it will start doing it with the works from original content creators as well. In the end if audio is played it can be recorded, either directly or just indirectly with a microphone next to the speaker. Audio bootlegging...
