    Default Chartwell (or a lesson in how not to film)

    On a rare occassion for me, I had the chance to spend time with my camera. Unfortunately handheld, no image stabilisation, poor focusing, setting choices and a dirty lens are not a good combination. Perhaps a lesson in how not to film?

    You seem to have already decided that this video is rubbish but I think it's far from that. While it might have been better to have some rock solid shots of the floweres etc., it's still 10 times better than a lot of YouTube videos.

    That means, you on bad day = better than most people.

    Agree with MBP....but a tripod would make a greater difference! Nice places to film....

    I think the shots at 0:12 and 0:28 are excellent reasons for using handheld. The movements were very natural and human. I thought the static shots (e.g. at 0:03 and 0:23) not good adverts for handheld; nor were the closeups of flowers. Why do some hand held shots look more pleasing than others?
