  1. John. I can’t see any point in you doing this. Presumably the Olympus 4/3 camera will turn in at least 2560 pixels on the long side. The full frame shots will be bigger than 2560 on the long side. Whether you are intending to make an executable file or an MP4 (recommended) you already have enough pixels to work with. Let’s say your making an MP4 Video. You upscale the 4/3 images and when you publish the MP4 as a HD video, it will downscale them. Unless I’m missing something, your chasing your tail here.
  2. When I go in for Cataracts, I’m going to demand Canon F2.8 lenses oh yeah, with image stabilisation too
  3. Michael I’ve already had surgery for a Macular Hole which formed in my left eye in May. It’s an age thing, where you lose vision clarity in the centre of your eye. It could have been devastating. They did a remarkable job on that, but the recovery was very difficult. A gas is placed in the eye to hold things in place and for 45 minutes of every waking hour for 5 days…………You have to be face down as though you’re looking towards the centre of the earth. The Cataracts are not big issues compared to that, so I’m looking forward to getting them done and hopefully moving on. In the meantime, thank goodness for autofocus :-)
  4. Hello Mur I have a couple more issues to iron out. I’m having a Cataract in my left eye done on the 12th November and I’ll have the right eye Cataract done as soon as possible after that. It’s a bit of a shock when you live for 71.5 years with hardly a scratch and then the health issues all kick off together. Oh the Joys eh?
  5. Yes, these types of YouTube channels are now my mainstay entertainment. I haven’t sat in our TV room for months and even cancelled my satellite TV account. I prefer these real world YouTube videos that those super slick TV ones of old. Narrow boating in the UK, Remote bush walking in Australia and others. All great entertainment, made by ordinary folk.
  6. Rosy I’ve watched every episode of the re-building to Tally Ho. It got me through some difficult times this year and last and I was even prompted to donate to the guys cause. It really is a great series and what a talent for a young guy to have. Nothing seems to phase him at all.
  7. Great presentation, I really enjoyed the varied images. Not quite so keen on the maps, which in my view tend to interrupt the flow a little, but then again I can’t read them.
  8. Gary I agree that finding the right music is vital. I almost gave up on the 3 Jewels, because I spent a lot of time going through YoTube copywriter free music. There were tracks I could have used, but they just didn’t have that special something. That thing that we find hard to describe, but we know it when we hear it, or see it as the case may be. I too had YouTube music flagged recently, which is a bit confusing when you consider that I got it from their own copyright music section. However, from my days working with Medwyn Goodall music, I’m aware of how copyright floats from composer, to recording label, back to the composer over time. It wasn’t until I started using that Pink Floyd track that the idea of that opening and closing technique came to me. It does indicate how finding the first music is so important. Well, perhaps technology has found the most equitable way for us to use music.
  9. Gary When a video is uploaded to a monetised YouTube account, one of the first pages your taken to is where you can select if that particular video is monetised or not. Even if you selected to monetise that video, it would be flagged straight away and you will receive an email something like this below A copyright owner using Content ID has claimed some material in your video. Your video is live and the visibility settings you selected remain applied to it. But it is now either being monetized by the copyright owner, or they have chosen to receive analytics about it. This is not a copyright strike. This claim does not affect your account status. Video title: Canon R5 + Jewels of the Gold Coast Copyrighted content: Welcome To The Machine Claimed by: Pink Floyd Next steps If there are no problems, you don’t need to take any action and you don’t need to delete your video. If something went wrong and the copyright owner or our system made a mistake, we have a dispute process. Only use it if you’re confident you have the rights to use all the content in your video. Learn more You can also remove the claimed content using Studio's editing tools. In the next steps section above, I’ve taken the first option to mean that if I’m happy for the monetisation to go to the music creator, then the video can remain posted. The monetisation isn’t important to me and under the circumstances it’s hard to argue that any money generated by the song shouldn’t go to the creator. When you think about this issue and see the amount of copyright material that is posted on YouTube, this seems to me to be a fair way and probably the only way to deal with it. Assuming I’ve drawn the correct conclusions and by this time next week I’m not in Jail….
  10. I spent a lot of time searching for royalty free music for these images and none had the impact I was looking for. No offence to Eric Matyas and others, but I couldn’t find anything that I thought worked well. My YouTube Chanel has recently been monetised, so within seconds of posting anything with copyright music, it’s flagged and your informed by email. However, what they do, as long as I’ve got this right, is to divert any revenue created to the music creator and the video can remain posted. I have no issues with that at all. In fact it a good way to deal with copyright issues in my view. If no money is being made, where’s the problem and if money is being made (albeit a tiny amount) the technology now allows that to be identified and diverted to the creator.
  11. It was only one visit me not a long time, there is just a lot of opportunity for images. In fact, I wish I had spent a bit more time, or went back the next day when the sun was in a different spot.
  12. These are three almost complete high rise apartment and holiday blocks on the Gold Coast about 1k south of Q1. Impressive architecture. Download from here
  13. Rosie. I copied and pasted it from word and perhaps its taken the formatting. See if this is better Dbolt. You have to be practical and most of what we would like to be able to do, may not be possible or practical. If it were me, I’d make my presentation as an Mp4 video - 1920*1080 pixels at 60p. I’d also create an EXE as a backup and I’d take two USB sticks, with the same content on both. Just in case one USB chose that time to throw a wobbly. Not likely, but better safe than sorry. Copy the content to the computer and run it from there as a preference. You don’t say if the venue is a Camera Club, but if it is, any club that does not have the equipment to play that Mp4 should be drummed out of the Brownies.

  15. Alex55 I think you’ll find that the camera plays a much less important part in the process than being at the right place at the right time. The video below explains https://youtu.be/f0YO_hPo0u0
  16. I use a Canon R5 full frame Mirrorless camera for these images.
  17. JRR I just read your comment again and feel the need to say I agree with you, if I am reading your meaning correctly when you say. Too many people go the route of "look what I can do Mom!" with all that is available to them. I have to say it’s something I’ve always thought, but it’s not easy to find the appropriate words to express that without feathers flying. In my view, far too much effort is placed on transient effects, even though they maybe sophisticated and clever, and nowhere near enough effort on the quality of what is being displayed or how the images are synchronised to the soundtrack. If there is a place we should see good examples of Audio Visual, surely it’s on a dedicated forum like this, but those examples are few and far between. The most lengthy threads seem to be tied up with obscure technical issues and rarely do we see any discussion on technique and production issues that affect the main thing we strive for. That our presentation is well received and does not have viewers reaching for the escape key one minute in. There’s a YouTuber I view who does not appear to be a photographer, but his presentations are very appealing to me, because he concentrates on the content, synchronisation and he keeps things simple.
  18. JRR. Thank you. The music is royalty free supplied by Google for use on YouTube. Anything copy-right gets flagged within a minute of posting.
  19. Make sure you copy and past it into the registration. If it worked before, it should work now.
