60fps would be a better choice for fast moving objects I would think. Don't forget to shoot some slo-mo at 120fps too. I believe that is for 1080p max though. Of course, you can up-res that to 4k depending on your software.

Mb per second also matter, the higher the better but that also increases the overall video file size.

ive watched some reviews and they have shot at 4K 60fps and then played it at half speed and it’s gave a smoother looking slow mo and still 4k. I need to do some trials with that though

What do you find yourself shooting and how much post do you do? With Sony I used 24, mainly because the 30 crops in. They don’t do 4k60 yet. With my Z6 I used 4K30 since there’s no crop like on the Sony does. 4k30 allows me to shoot with 1/60 shutter speed which allows me to shoot indoors at a lower iso. When I shoot 60, I need to shoot at 1/125 but indoors sometimes it’ll raise my ISO too high for my comfort.

Today took my daughter to a ninja gym which was dimly lit for the first time and shooting 4k30 and 1/60 allowed me to keep it at iso2000 or so indoors. If I boosted it to 1/125 I would’ve probably been closer to 6400 at times.

Also if you’re like me and shoot a lot of video but don’t edit it, 30 is good to use. 60 will give you the flexibility for slow mo, but if you don’t edit much, it’ll be for not and just add to your file size.

Thanks , literally just got the Osmo so haven’t shot much at all yet. However it will be mainly family stuff with minimal editing. I will slowly get myself into piecing clips together

Here is the venue, Bosque del Apache, way early in the morning.
Cool thing about the campervan we 'camped' less than 2 miles from the entrance....so
getting up and there on site 1 hour before sunrise was easy/quick. Need to get there to get
a spot=many photographers lined up for the blast-off (I've got an image somewhere :)

Please remember I'm not a bierder but a wanna-be photographer. But if you are a bierder Bosque should
be top of the bucket.

Dude, that is a wonderful image, I think it is one of your best...I like that they are not in flight yet, I have never seen this side of that place..so unique is king here. I want to go there...and I am not a birder either...

keen to hear your thoughts on that head, I have my eye on one for my architectural work, even though I don't think I really need it. I spend enough time on each edit that a tiny correction to level/vertical is nothing compared to the rest.

At the end of the day it's more about actually capturing the moments, 10-15 years from now I don't think anyone will complain that it's not in 30p or 60p. I have to remind myself to take more videos of my girls growing up. I have thousands of pictures from when my oldest was an infant, less so when she was 3, and even less now that she's 5 and in kindergarten. Same goes for my youngest, have a ton from when she was born and when her and her sister were young (two years gap, so a lot from when they were 3 and 1). But lately I've been spending so much time on the house and other things that I'm taking less and less photos now. But more so I find myself looking back and while I greatly enjoy looking at the pictures that I took of them when they were babies, where it really gives me happiness is looking at the short video clips of them. In hindsight I should've probably taken 10% less video and 50% more video.

In that regard to, I'm part of a FB group where someone was complaining about their Sony overheating and shutting down. When asked what he was shooting, he was shooting his daughter's Christmas concert and saying that it overheated in 4k and that because of that the camera was trash. To be honest, while I'm all a fan of capturing moments, I'm more of the take a picture, a short 30 second clip, then put the camera down and enjoy why you're there. Those parents that bring tripods, mics, and setup to record the entire concert, I could do without. And especially complaining how it's trash because it doesn't record in 4k. To be honest, how many times, if any, will you sit down and watch an hour clip of your kid singing Jingle Bells? Either take a short clip or if you must record the whole show, just shot it in 1080 and be done with it.

Congrats Vinz. Let us know how it works. I would love to get the one that Mike Kelley uses but I’m doing ok with the ballhead I use. I think it would help when I shoot one point perspectives in keeping the horizontals and verticals all in line.

For the architecture and real estate shooters, Thomas Brigantino is back with new videos on youtube. I’ve watched most of them and have learned new techniques for blending exposures and other tips. Well worth a look. He has live streams scheduled too which are cool because you can ask him any question.

The review of the Benro looks goods. I shadowed Rich Baum working with real-world client. He uses a geared head and i really saw the advantage. He uses the more expensive Arca Swiss D4 though.

He opened my eyes to the tilt shift world too. He uses both the 17 and the 24. He’s also using that Bogen 3046.

Thanks for mentioning Thomas, i’ll check him out.

Really helpful on those micro adjustments without loosening the main knob. I saw the geared head in action shadowing/assisting Rich Baum.

The review of that particular head looks good and it’s the cheapest of the bunch.

that bogen is a MONSTER

kind of nice having a monster around at times, my brother's old manfrotto is a bit of a monster, will try it with a gimbal one day.

btw, the geared head looks awesome, really want to try one out

A lot cheaper than the Arca Swiss Cube! :lol:

Thank you Samsung for packing a micro SD in a little blister pack that I can't open...I am so afraid I am gonna snap the little thing into bits...Lexar and SanDisk have a better way of packing these fragile little things.

Man, this is so tempting. $1000 off a new a9. But I need a Synology NAS first.
