Hi!

I'm new to owning a GoPro, shooting videos, and editing, but it's been fun. My wife and I recently visited Hawaii with my side of the family and I'm working on making 5 short videos (1 for each day). Here is day 1! Let me know what you think! (good and bad feedback accepted, but be nice!) Thanks!

Camera: Hero Session
Editing: GoPro Studio

Yes I tried all sorts of color correction, saturation, and temp changing. This was my first real video with water and sun gopro footage so I think I tried at least 6 different color/video preset corrections. I agree some of the color corrections might have been overkill. It was kind of hard to find a medium balance (nice sharp colors, but not too much). I'll try and make them mesh a little better next time around! Thanks!

Yeah nice concept to do 5 short vids instead of one that is evtl. too long.
Nice pics never been there, very far from Germany so I making a journey with you now :smile:
For the future try to hold the cam more stabil, many shoots are shaky- maybe you invest in a gimbal.
Waiting for next part.


Ciao Rob

I noticed it was too shaky too. I didn't realize I was shaking that much while recording. What's a gimbal? (ok, nevermind, did a quick google search.) I'm a little disappointed it's not smoother, but now I know for next time.

So if I get a gimbal, any suggestions on what to get or what to look for? I browsed this list: http://www.toptenthebest.com/camera-photo/top-10-best-gimbal-stabilizers-for-gopro/

Day 4! It's hard to follow up the big event that was day 3. The video isn't sharp for some reason and we didn't film much so it's less than 1 minute.

Have you thought of slowing down the footage so you can control your shakiness?

I tried it a few times. The problem is I didn't shoot much of this at 60 fps due to a small sd card. So in slow motion it looks a little off. I just need to get a gimbal for next time. :grin:
