    Hi all!

    I recently decided to practice doing video and went out with my new camera (E-M5 mark II). This was just a test shoot of 40 minutes and 2 hours of video editing, which was totally new to me, coming from photography. I hope you like it! Thanks to the bikers who kindly let me hang around with my camera! It was such a sunny afternoon, an ND filter would have given me a tighter DOF but hey, next time!

    I'm going to Cuba for two months in the summer, so I'm trying to learn as much as I can about video before that! I previously had the E-P5, but as it's video capabilities are very limited, I upgraded to the E-M5 II. And yes, I know Panasonic has better video but I'm hooked to the IBIS! There are still quite a lot of basic technical stuff that I just don't know about doing video, but one has to start somewhere, right? :)

    Pretty rad stuff. I still have my S&M dirt bike classic and take it out every now and then. I'm old (35) so...I'm taking it waaaay easier than these blokes. Killer riding and a great initial attempt in video. Keep it up!
