And for practice, just walk around with a 5 pound dumbbell and keep upping the weight.
Churches have the most money to spend on these things. I used to sell automated cd duplication machines and mega churches spent a lot of money, like $80,000 on one purchase. They would then record the sermons and as soon as they finished, they would start burning the CDs as fast as the could to sell to everyone as they left.
Get a 3 camera setup, a live switcher and edit everything live, then burn the DVDs on the way out, that's money right there.
It is interesting how as soon as a technology becomes available to the masses, it just gets overdone. First with time lapse, then with drone shots and now with this, steady long shots.
But for all the people out there just doing it because they can, there are people doing it because it's part of the story. I don't do camera movement in my shots that much right now because I don't want it to be sloppy, but with something like this and a lot of practice, I could totally make this work for that price. But what I'd really like to see is more affordable lighting so I could afford to properly light that really long tracking shot, and then a lot of money to properly dress the set for that long shot.
This will be great for sports videos, but cinematic shots will still take effort just like they always have.
I hope this is one of those things that every camera maker catches onto. I just spent the day shooting raw with the pocket camera that I got for $500, so how can I really complain, but managing metadata on that camera sucks, I just don't use it at all. If black magic really wants to create game changing cameras, they need to nail the user interface like the smart phones did. Especially with the new crash cams that have no screen. Everyone has a smart phone, every camera should have this ability.
The dude's from Spain, english is probably not his first language and all the "grammatical errors" are related to how english is just a really confusing language when translating from something else. All of his "errors" would be correct if he was saying the same thing in Spanish. It's not like any of these errors made it any more difficult to understand.
God, everything is awesome and we all just complain.
If I was a writer and not a video editor, I would totally use this computer. In fact, if I wasn't a video editor I would use this computer. Literally, the only time I ever plug anything into my computer is when I edit. I have zero use for any ports when I'm not editing, I've wanted to buy a really fast thumb drive for a long time, but I literally have no use for it since I use iCloud or Google Drive.
Once again, Apple is going in the direction the industry is headed while everyone seems to have no idea that Apple will continue to update the Pro line.
