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, timelapse

Learning the features and techniques of the Osmo Pocket has been fun. During a recent trip, I experimented with the time-lapse function, which works very well. Here’s how it turned out:

This video was made looking through a plate glass window on a cloudy day. It came out rather well for a simple exercise. The ease of use of this camera is astounding. Give it a try.

Ulanzi OP-5 for Osmo Pocket

I recently bought an Osmo Pocket camera. The camera is a fun device, great for vlogging, travel vids, and even narrative projects. I’ll be posting more about it very soon when I craft a few vids. However, I wanted to mention the Ulanzi OP-5 wide angle lens attachment because it’s a great addition to the Osmo Pocket concept. I like the wide angle perspective, not just for sweeping vistas, but for going in close and getting a lot in the frame. Here’s a very short vid that was made hand-held simply to show what that can look like.

The lens does a good job considering the price is barely USD$15.00 at the time of this post. That’s almost free. I’ll be doing some fun things with the Osmo Pocket, this lens and several others. One note: Be careful with the lens attached to your camera. It has a magnetic connection and is good but not super strong. Still, a great addition to my kit and will be used frequently. Go wide, go close. You’ll love the results.
