    Si prega di comprendere che l'inglese è la lingua principale sul forum. È anche il modo migliore per chiunque di conversare con il resto del forum. Mi dispiace che non possa essere diversamente.

    Where can I read the rules of this forum? I just don't want to break some rules because of ignorance.

    Personally I have nothing against if somebody is using other languages than English. Of course, forum users should understand, that messages in some less common language could limit their audience and very exotic languages might even cause a risk that nobody understand the message. But there is no obligation to respond to every message or even read every single one.

    This was shot with 1.20 and the Gimbal. I’m pretty happy with the quality of footage. 1080p 60fps.

    A fair question.

    A quick scan of this forum and the related forums shows English to be the predominant language. It's used by both native English speakers (OK, writers) and those for whom English is an alternative language. Thus, the odds of getting a useful response to a post drop precipitously when posting in another language.

    Recognizing not everyone is comfortable with writing in a second language, I suggested using the Google translation tool. The results can be, in some cases, confusing or ...humorous, but usually the bulk of the translation is usable.

    For better or worse, English has become the modern lingua franca. (Irony intended) Keep in mind these forums were started by a company for which English is a second language.

    In short, anyone is welcome to post in their first language. The chances of getting a reply, when not using English, aren't good, and other users may be deprived of any benefits from an exchange.

    Ist jetzt alles klar?

    Mit freundlichen Grüße
    Rick

    @corallino - the Auto Low Light changes the frame rate when it's too dark - so 60fps goes down to 30 fps.

    At 30fps the shutter is open for twice the duration of 60fps to let more light in.

    Because the shutter is open twice as long there is more motion blur.

    Motion blur on the stabilised image is the reason for the pulsating look of the video. Reducing the amount of shake and judder the camera is subjected to will reduce the motion blur and the flickering you see.

    This was shot in Swansea, South Wales. Still getting to grips with the camera and gimbal, both a 1st for me. Yes that’s me (white coat not the yellow or the furry one lol)

    Lots to learn putting footage together too. This was done with iMovie which I’m still learning too. I did download resolve but I think my 8 year old MacBook struggled a little with it. Good news though I’ll need to get an upgrade, hopefully the wife will approve it

    It's good to put a face to a name.

    I think the gimbal worked out well.

    Resolve comes with a steep learning curve. Some things can be a challenge to accomplish. Support is ...um... uneven. BMD is, reasonably, not too interested in supporting the free users; the user forum and YouTube are about all there is. When an obvious bug is confirmed as being a bug, BMD may show interest and then stop responding. BTDT NTL I think it's worth the effort .

    Just follow the exact same process you did to get to 1.20 but using the update file from inside the 1.18 download.

    Er, there is no V1.80. I suspect you mean V1.18. I recommend using V1.15 instead.

    The article "Firmware - how to update" , at the top of this and the main SJ7, forum spells out the steps needed to install firmware.
