Hi,

 

maybe someone remembers my post from some months ago where I published my very first film (test film actually) done with my new Canon 814 Autozoom.

 

Not very good because I then discovered the battery voltage was incorrect.

 

 

Well, after changing the batteries with Wein brand ones, I shoot another test:

 

 

I'd be very pleased if someone would step in and give me an opinion about the footage.

 

Film stock is again Kodak Ektachrome 100D.

 

Have a great day!

 

 

JC

It looks good!

 

I personally avoid using the zoom while I'm shooting, but that's just my taste. I find it disorienting when I have to watch the footage later. Compose the shot, then hit the trigger. Pan if you have to, move the camera if you have to, but avoid the zoom.

Move the camera less. Hold it steady. Pick your shots. if you do pan the camera, do it slooooowly. Much slower than you are doing now. Otherwise, you are getting the hang of it.

Zac & Matt,

 

thanks for the advice!

 

I'd really like to get that vintage feel down to all details.

 

Thanks again!
