Video: Looking for Architecture and Urban Landscape Photography Locations in Glasgow

I have been trying out a number of vintage lenses recently.  Luckily, I have a very kind neighbour who has been kind enough to let me borrow a set of Olympus Zuiko lenses.

I decided to create a short video while I was checking out some possible architecture and urban landscape locations in the Charing Cross and Anderston areas of Glasgow.

Although this was a fairly short walk I was lucky enough to spot a couple of compositions that I will definitely be returning to shoot shortly…  I particularly like the last shot in this video,  what do you think?

Using Fujifilm's Classic Chrome film simulation on your video - 1080p x-t2 Video Test

I have been tinkering a bit more with video in the last month or two and I am pretty sure you be seeing more of these sample videos that use Fujifilm’s film simulations here. Sometimes, it is just not feasible to shoot in 4K so I thought I would conduct a few tests to see which film simulation would be a good alternative to Fujifilm’s F-Log 4K video.

The video above is shown as per camera output with no colour grading, sharpening or any other ‘improvements’ that can be made in post.

The video was shot using the following in camera settings:

1.      Classic Chrome 1080p, 60fps

2.      Shadows -2

3.      Highlights -2

4.      Sharpening -4

5.      Saturation -2

I will create another test video so I can compare how the Classic Chrome profile compares to the others.
