Cows 1660 & 1663

Cows 1660 & 1663
Cow encounter in the Green Heart polders in Holland. Some trembling of the iPhone in the strong wind gusts.
Using a larger (carbon) tripod with the Manfrotto TwistGrip universal smartphone clamp (foldable, thus not very rigid) seems worse in the wind compared to my default iPhone tripod, the little Joby GripTight One GorillaPod Stand. The problem is that Manfrotto smartphone clamp. No stabilization in post (FCPX) used, because that makes this kind of shaking worse. Røde smartlav plus fuzzy windscreen just around the zipper inside my half-opened jacket. Cows 1660 & 1663 | 20200708 |

Cow loves this black spotted lamb ..
Watch this first clip I shot – that I not used before nor inspected really before , because it is not in focus .. – but ok for this as evidence …
Well … watching version 2 yesterday of my short film ‘Shepherd’ I noticed that that young black-white cow ‘herding’ lambs , may rather be driving lambs away from her special one – a lamb with a large black spot , she loves. Version 1 film – .
Version 2 film – .

Footage after cropping 4x and minor color correction (no sharpening – for not introducing artifacts) of this iPhone X footage made using 2x lens .. I really tried to get focus right because I had a problem also the day before , here using the 2x lens – I hardly ever use that lens and wonder whether that’s a hardware problem ..) … Film : 20200510 Michel van der Burg |
