Best Vlogging Camera Setup 2018 Photography Filming Beginner Tips

There are a lot of cameras on the market, so it’s difficult to say which one is the best vlogging camera setup in 2018. All camera manufacturers could produce the perfect digital camera for vlogging, for Youtube, for filming, videomaking and so on.. ..But they won’t!

It’s a challenge trying to find what works best for you, which are your priorities when buying a new camera, and how you going to create your own setup for vlogging, for producing videos for Youtube or for your photography and filming projects.
If you already own a decent camera, try to see if you can create a DIY solution to compensate the lack of a specific function prior to get frustrated and keep searching the market for that best camera that actually, does not exist.

Canon EOS R first thoughts. Is it worth buying? Are you disappointed? Mirrorless 4K Full Frame Digital Camera 2018 Photography Talk

After all the rumours and the long wait, Canon has finally released the first
Mirrorless Full-Frame Camera joining the party with Sony and now also Nikon

Canon EOS R Nikon Sony Mirrorless 4K Digital camera review 2018

however, here I will talk mainly about Canon, particularly because I am a Canon shooter. Therefore the question is……is it worth buying that camera?  Let me give you my thoughts about it. As you probably know I like to shoot landscapes, outdoor lifestyles and activities, such as seen in the video you see below.  In this video I’m on a hike where the problem is the haze, and as the clouds come and go, I thought I would take the opportunity to give you my thoughts about this new camera release.

Canon EOS R Mirrorless 4K Digital camera review 2018
This long-awaited camera, has been quite a talking point for quite some time now, such as “when are Canon going to come out with a mirrorless full-frame?” and I think people started to get impatient, especially when you don’t want to have to switch brands, such as Sony, who had already updated their models.   Once you have a set of lenses and accessories compatible to a certain brand it’s quite difficult to make a switch and you know of course, whether you are an amateur or a professional photograher it is always good to be up on the game with the latest model of camera to come out, but I feel that sometimes, these manufacturers take us for a bit of a ride, because when you spend the sort of money we need to spend, they give you something, but certainly don’t give you everything, so then you always have to come up with compromises. I am very practical and when I want to upgrade or change camera and equipment I look at what that new equipment is going give me that it doesn’t let me do now.

Digital Camera Mirrorless Sensor Size Full Frame Aps-C Micro 4-3 1inch sensors photography

Yes, they have finally put a full-frame sensor into a mirrorless body, but what would you expect?
Why would you get a mirrorless rather than a DSLR?
Maybe you don’t want to have the mirror flicking up, or you would expect the camera to be of a smaller compact body or faster shutter speed (only 7 frames per second that goes down only to 5 frames per second, if you don’t use servo focus)? Not great, if you know you can buy one of those Micro Four Thirds cameras that can go up to 15 frames per second.

The second big mistake or should I say lack of specs, is just the one SD card slot which for any photographer that has some responsibility whether it be a wedding or any sort of shoot, two card slots are of great importance.  Whether to back up your work or if you want to shoot in RAW or JPEG, video etc.

The third problem is the lack of in-body in-built sensor stabilisation.  I have a little camera, that I think, is one of the most underrated cameras out there, and it’s got five axes image stabilization with an aps-c sensor.
You really see good image quality when you are using aps-c and full frame sensor cameras.  If the light is good, then you could go down to micro four-thirds, to a 1-inch sensor or even a mobile phone sometimes produces good photos.  It’s then, depending on what you evaluate as being a good photo. I love the Micro Four Thirds cameras as they have a multitude of specifications that you might need, but unfortunately, they can lose image quality, particularly in certain light conditions, like the atmospheric day today, you start to see more noise in the image and lack of details in the clouds. This is where you can see the quality from the Aps-C sensor or the Full-frame.  Maybe it just requires a bit more post-processing, but if I can do less of that, the better. That’s why I like Canon, because I like the colours that come straight out of the camera, there’s very little post-processing to do and the files are beautiful and ready to go.

Another problem of this new camera, is that Canon has now decided after so many years, to change the lens mount, so you now need an adapter to be able to fit on the camera all the lenses that you’ve collected over the years.  Whether it is an EF lens or an EF-s lens, it is an extra piece of kit that you need to buy and to carry along with you.  Less is always more.

Canon EOS R Lens Mount Adapter Mirrorless Digital Camera 4K 2018 Photography Thoughts Review

Another thing they’ve given the illusion of is having a good 4k, but this 4k gets so cropped that you either have to use a big wide-angle lens to compensate that, but then that gets cropped anyway so.. what’s the point? A good thing about 4k is to be able to extract some good still images from each frame of your video footage, whilst retaining all of the details in your images.  Some issues with using 4k is that all the technology is not quite up to the game and so the files become really heavy.  If you try to upload a video on YouTube in 4k, it can take quite an age and everything slows down.

One good thing people have been asking for, is the fully-articulated screen in a full frame body camera, as this was only seen in the 70d and then the 80d.

If you want to move to a mirrorless camera, and spend half the money, then take a look at the Canon EOS M5.  It’s got a compact body (that’s one of the reasons why you want a mirrorless camera), it’s got a flippable screen and 5-axes in-body image stabilisation.  This means that I can shoot using lenses that are not stabilised, as the camera automatically stabilise them and if the lens is stabilised, then you get a double stabilisation effect. That means that you can really shoot at a much slower shutter speed and still get sharp images.
The EOS M5 has got a very good touch screen (the touch screen of Canon is second to none), it’s fantastic and really responsive. It’s got Wi-Fi connectivity and has everything that you need to shoot good photography with 24.5 megapixel images, RAW files and it costs less than half of the price of the new EOS R!
So let me let me hear in the comments below your thoughts, if you think this new camera EOS R from Canon is worth buying.  I personally don’t think so, but I want to hear your thoughts.
Until next time this is Fabo from Fabulous Outdoors ..see you next time!

It’s Spring your favourite season to shoot landscapes? Fabulous Outdoors

It’s been a very temperamental winter over the European Alps, lots of snow has fallen, followed by rapid temperature change. Suddenly Spring arrives with it’s beautiful clear skies, white clouds blown by the wind over the mountains, stunning sunrises and sunsets to be photographed.
It’s definitely my favourite season to shoot landscapes, but I also love Spring for the awakening of nature. Birds happily singing and busy flying to feed their little ones calling for food from their nest and other animals running around with their new borns. Sunrises and sunsets are pretty good to be captured all year round indeed, but in the Alps or in their proximity, you can still get the snow on the peaks in contrast with the green landscape at a lower altitude. At the same time, you don’t have to freeze yourself as you do in wintertime going up before the sunrise to set your gear for the shoot.

For this particular shoot, we were out for one of my photo-walks around the lakes as the sun was about to set creating these beautiful reflections in the water.

How to fix compact cameras lens curtain problem DIY cover by Fabulous Outdoor Photography

It’s a great little camera, to take it with you everywhere, and it produce good quality images. Get one on Amazon, see the latest deals here: https://goo.gl/8ZvLlH

Hello viewers. I’ve got this little camera, the Canon Powershot SX720HS, which is a pocket camera that I love, because I can take it with me on on all my outdoors activities however, I have never particularly liked this lens cover curtain that most pocket cameras have as I thought I was going to break it..

and in fact I did break it, and so I came up with a D.I.Y., solution.

I measured the outside of the lens, which is 55mm and I went to find a jar lid, and I found this one, pretty much of the same size, and I micro-adjusted with a tin-can opener to make it a snug fit.

You can make it as snug as you want, easy to take it on and off when you want to take a photo, and this way the camera lens is much more protected. I can put it in my pocket, without worrying, it can get hit without breaking anything anymore. So, just a quick tip for today’s video, I hope you like it and find it useful, because maybe this has happened to you as well.

Fresh snow on the mountain peaks time lapse Fabulous Outdoors Photography & filmmaking tutorials

A 1 minute time lapse with the wind blowing clouds and snow over the mountains Fresh snow on the mountain peaks by Fabulous Outdoors @fabulousport


Music Credits: “Fresh Fallen Snow” by Chris Haugen
Film recorded with Canon 6D
Canon 70-200mm f/4 lens
Manfrotto Tripod
Filmed in 1080p HD at 25fps then speeded up in post production, which is the simpler way to film and to record a time lapse video.
Time lapse is amongst the coolest filmmaking techniques, speeding up things that we are used to see going slow, giving a visually interesting and pleasant viewing experience. Adding a nice relaxing music and atmospheric sounds implements the power of the video footage.

Snow on the mountain peaks
Another way to create a time lapse video, for better quality and definition, is to capture multiple images a few seconds apart, then upload them all to the computer and adjust all the exposures and settings. After all that’s done, upload the images in windows movie maker, adobe premiere pro or other filmaking programs, and play them at the desired speed.

Although Dji Global came out with a new drone called Mavic Air, the Dji Mavic Pro is still a great product to buy in 2018.
We’ve compared the specifications of both, the Mavic PRO and the Mavic Air, and for the use that we intend to do, the Mavic PRO just seem to be more appropriate. It’s built and feels very solid, the foldable propellors are great for travelling and are less likely to break in small impacts, and the price has dropped since the newer Mavic AIR came on the market.

It’s recommended to get the bundle deal with two extra batteries, the multiple chargers and the nice bag that goes with it.
However if you want just to get the drone Mavic PRO, it’s at a great discouted price on here:

IF you’re more interested in the Dji MAVIC AIR, as it’s a newer version or because the specifications are more suitable to your needs, then you can check out the latest deals on the Dji Global website by clicking here: Dji MAVIC AIR

We’ll be making more videos on this channel Fabulous Sport Outdoors about how to fly a drone, video tutorials, filming tips and tricks to help everyone interested in these fabulous devices, and in photography / filmmaking.

Winter Wonderland Photography Walk – Fabulous Outdoors

It’s a very cold winter in the alps, lots of snow and temperatures of -15C / -20C and more. As a lover of the outdoors and a photographer, these are great conditions for capturing beautiful natural landscapes with the fresh snow making it a real winter wonderland. In this video, I went for a walk in the beautiful Champagny Le Haut in France, which is part of the Parc National de la Vanoise.

Here’s a video of the photo walk in this beautiful location: https://youtu.be/DecTDeUgWaY

It’s a great place to visit and to be surrounded by nature and to enjoy the beautiful outdoors and all the fabulous outdoor activities possible in this location.

I’ve been using canon cameras and equipment, plus a wide angle lens from Tokina.
For better audio capture I’ve mounted the external microphone video-mic pro which it performs much better than the inbuilt one.
