Default Kamakura (1 video, 2 pics)

There's no video forum, so this looks like the most appropriate place to post.

I took a bunch of video at various locations during my trip to Japan last month. This one is from Kamakura, which is about 45 minutes away from Tokyo. Kamakura is a great destination for those wanting to see shrines and temples but don't want to go all the way to Kyoto. It's also a great escape from all the crowds in Tokyo.

Used the Canon T2i, Tamron 17-50 f/2.8 XR Di-II SP, and a Steadicam Merlin for most shots in the video.

Here's a couple of photos from Kamakura as well:

Love your picks and videos! May be a softer fading of the music at the end of the video could help. Great stuff. You make me wish that Merlin Steadicam.

Big fan of your video's of Japan, and wow, that Merlin is incredible!

I said before in another of your threads that your video's "pop" out of the screen, but with that Merlin they are in another league entirely!

Awesome photo's as well mate, making me want to abuse the credit cards and go back right now.

Illuminati: How do you do the slow motion?

I record at a higher framerate (60 fps) then conform it to down 24 fps. This results in the slowdown, as 1 second of 60fps video now becomes roughly 2.4 seconds at 24fps.
