how we produce our sailing videos

Updated: Jun 26


quite often we receive questions from you about what kind of equipment and software we are using for producing our videos. In this article I compiled what we have for the moment.


at the very beginning (you can check out the footage in our first four episodes) I used what I already had. Just a big serious camera that I traveled with for many years: Canon EOS 5D Mark III together with the glass Canon EF 24-70mm f/4L II. Beautiful smooth image, amazing work with the manual focus but, damn, so heavy and with the terrible sound without an output microphone.

after careful research I decided to change my whole photo arsenal in favour of SONY:


THE MAIN CAMERAS

today in all my vlogs I’m using only these two cams:


1. Sony Alpha a64OO Mirrowless Camera. This one is perfect for single-handed video capture thanks to its 180-degree screen (yes, now you know why I chosen this model actually)) and eye-detect autofocus..

2. Acting cam GoPro Hero 7 that makes our underwater filming is so easy and ready for publishing without any serious post-production.

ESSENTIAL ACCESSORISES


This guy makes my life much easier, allowing to use my cam everywhere with never-endless angles - JOBY Gorilla Pod & Ballhead 3K:

For getting close up images with an elegant bluring on background I’m using this glass - FE 50mm F1.8 Standard Lens (SEL50F18F):

If you ask me what is the most important for logging on a sailing boat?

That's my answer - the Wind Shield! It divided my work on before and After!))


Extra batteries together with a double charger port:


ACTING CAM GEARS:


Underwater housing for making my little friend down on minus 40 meters:

and of course the most popular gadget for catching smooth movements - Feiyu G5 V2 3-Axis Splash-Proof Handheld GoPro Gimbal Stabiliser:

every of mentioned above gadget I have checked personally under different circumstances while our sailing and diving trips and, to tell the truth, I’m very content with the results!


VIDEO SOFTWEAR


I wasn't aquatinted with no one post-production programme before starting produce our vlogs. So everything was possible as I should start to learn from the very beginning. All our videos I'm creating in a free version of DaVinci Resolve.


Stay flexible and be creative!
