Ulanzi Lens Footage

As posted before, I’m exploring the use of the Osmo Pocket Camera with Ulanzi add-on lenses. The results vary. However, for the cost of about USD$15 each at this time, I think they’re worth the creative possibilities they offer. Here’s a look at the OP-5 and OP-8, which are the wide angle and fish eye.

Of course, this is just a primitive test designed to show the perspective of each lens. With more practice and a few projects coming, I think they’ll be helpful in creating some great footage. Get out there with your camera and have some fun!

Redneck BBQ Lab

So, yeah, BBQ is the way to go when you’re that hungry and demand quality. I’ve head the pleasure of enjoying the Redneck BBQ Lab on four separate occasions now. It’s always fantastic. Here’s a short video of them racking up some ribs.

And here’s a video made with my Osmo Pocket Camera showing the platter.

That’s a half rack by the way. Next time, I’m going all in for the full rack. Worth every bite.

Osmo Pocket Macro Lens

The previous post showed the Ulanzi wide angle lens. This time, I’m snapping on the Ulanzi macro lens, their model number OP-6. Again, for about USD$16, I’m impressed with what this lens can do. The following is a very short test in which I mounted the Osmo Pocket on a tripod and simply panned past a wine cork. Better stability that way. If you shoot in a higher frame rate and then slow things down, you’ll get smooth footage and a cool effect. Here’s my little test:

Turned out okay. I also like the way the Osmo Pocket rendered the image in the lower light situation. Sure, it’s not a full frame RED camera or some other very expensive rig. This is a sub USD$350 unit that has great potential to be a creative tool. Get out there and use it.

Cool pet ride!

I spotted this handsome BMW motorcycle on a street in Florence, Italy. It featured some unique storage gear.

DSC_3507Note the carrier on the rear of the motorcycle.

DSC_3505Looks like a specific build for “Pedro.” Here’s a closer look:

There is a blanket in there and leash to keep Pedro ensconced in the unit while on the roll. A great piece of equipment from someone who surely enjoys travel with the pet.
