Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2500 4K Wi-Fi Digital Camera with 64GB Card Review

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ2500 4K Wi-Fi Digital Camera with 64GB Card Review


This Video Review Is Based On :
Price, quality, performance, warranty, brand trust, after sales & service, reusability,
familiarity and easy to operate. FZ2500 is one of the best bridge cameras for
macro photography, as it allows taking pictures that have nicely saturated colors and an adequate
level of details. Shooting in JPEG also involves a great deal of noise reduction that leads
to a significant loss of detail and clipped highlights. However, the NR system is very
useful for taking JPG photos with minimal noise. The video recording quality provided
by this zoom camera is amazing. If you shoot in 4K or 1080p with 60 fps, you’ll be impressed
with the footage you receive. The recorded audio is also of high quality, while the included
sound level settings and wind filter give you more control over the shooting process. Kindly See the Description for This Product

Canon M5 First Thoughts and Photos From a M50 User’s Perspective

Canon M5 First Thoughts and Photos From a M50 User’s Perspective


Today we’re looking at my first photos
and my initial thoughts on the Canon EOS M5. I actually have to M50s that have
been using a lot for photos and videos, but wanted something with more buttons,
more control, and really the M5 is it in this lineup. In the EF-M system. It is
an older camera. There are some differences with the M50, but so far so
good. Gonna look at the photos and all that.
Let’s get started! Shutter, of course, is in the same spot as
the M50 for the most part as far as I can tell and that works nicely. I’m used to
pressing this button here for the video recording, but they moved it on the M50.
On the M5 it’s back here, so that’s a little different.
It’s not something you can easily press. But this is more photography geared than
the M50 so… We are going back in time with the M5 a little bit. It has the Digic 7 processor so it’s not as advanced as the 8. With the autofocus area it is
larger even at the small setting than the M50. That’s something to consider with
this camera. Autofocus won’t be quite as good, but it is still dual pixel
autofocus. While I was out there using it in the field just trying out for the
first time it seemed pretty decent. I do think there is a difference, but it’s not
a huge amount. Definitely in time I’m going to learn more about it and get a
better feel for it. It is definitely similar to the M100
in the AF area, the smallest AF area is not the smallest compared to the M50.
It’s a little bigger. And interface has that kind of animation to it that the
M100 has, but the M50 does not have. The biggest benefit for me on the M5
are all of the buttons all the controls that are direct. You just change them and
that’s it. The funny thing with entry-level cameras is that sometimes
the manufacturers remove features that make easier modes like aperture priority
better, but with Canon especially they remove the minimum shutter speed. So I
haven’t been using aperture priority… With M5 it works really nicely because
you have those direct controls for adjusting aperture, adjusting shutter
speed, and ISO. Now, with the ISO it’s a little quirky in here. But I need to
figure out if I can adjust things slightly better with the
controls so I get those three direct settings. But it definitely has enough
buttons and dials to make it work. With the custom settings saved modes. I did
notice you can’t push video settings into one of those, which is kind of
inconvenient for me. But I really don’t expect to use this specific camera for a
lot of video stuff. Has the flip down screen to face the lens. That’s a little
weird and quirky. So actually this back screen is a little better for
photography in some situations. If you’re doing it like this, that works nicely. But
something like this and that so much. Because with the M50 you can pop it up to the side. This downward thing I could see that working Nicely… Not too bad! I’m gonna definitely use this more for photo stuff. It’ll be in the videos as the main
camera to take photos. Because it has that nice direct control on it. One of
the biggest quirks for me already is the batteries. This uses the LP-E17 battery
and the M50 uses LP-E12. Camera Craft actually helped me out with this. I got a
second LP-E17 official battery, which is very nice to have thanks to them. And
also just have to balance that. Of course with photos I won’t need batteries
nearly as much with this camera than the video one. Having two batteries I think
is probably sufficient. Seems decent so far. Using the M5 for the first photo
outing it worked pretty nicely. I didn’t have anything setup well, but there is a little bit of transition
between the M5 and the M50, of course, in the settings in the way
things work. One thing I was super curious about was the build quality of the
M5 versus the M50. The plastics are different. I think the plastics on the M5
are pretty much exactly the same as the lenses with the 32 millimeter and 22
millimeters. It’s that gray plastic. It looks exactly the same color wise and just the
feel of it is very very similar. Actual structure of the M5 and the M50 feels
very similar even if the plastics are different on the exterior. With the grip
area it does creak a little bit. This is a used M5, but even so one of my M50s creaks a little bit down there too… So it’s probably just some slight
variations with the plastics, the interior pieces, and all that. It is
heavier definitely… So there must be some extra
metal or something in there. And probably the oddest thing is this back screen. So
I didn’t get into the EF-M system between the original that I had and the M50. So
it is interesting to see some of the middle stuff like this M5. That is
different. Let’s take a look at all the photos! I love the grasses at this a low angle.
You can see with a different look it actually is quite a bit less interesting
in my opinion. So definitely that lower angle, getting it together, shooting
through the grasses whatever you want to call them. I think that works out nicely.
I don’t know if this is some type of wild wheat or whatever it is, but
beautiful light tan color. Trying to find a good angle for this. Good perspective…
But I just couldn’t find it’s anything that really fits the feel of it when I
was looking at it. I did definitely try. So you don’t need a perfect flower to take
a photo of. If it has some interest to it, in this case, I really like how it looked.
Definitely want to take a photo of it. Of course, if you’ve seen any of my recent
videos I am super enthusiastic about bees. Like ’em! Definitely a good spot for
them in this area. Butterflies are also ones I really love taking photos of. I
didn’t have a lens that worked out well with the bees or these butterflies, but
definitely tried! This photo turned out super interesting. The butterfly is doing
some type of flip maneuver. Here we’ve got the layers of interest.
I love doing that style photography. A different butterfly this time. I really tried to get some photos of that one as well. Now, with the focus on the M5 is was a little
challenging, but I think I got one or two out of it. Here we’ve got some beautiful
orange flowers… One other thing that I should mention with the
M5 is that it uses the CR2 RAW format, which is more compatible with the Acdsee software that I use. It
works perfectly and that’s super convenient for me because that does not
currently support CR3, the version that I have at least. Those are my first
impressions on the Canon EOS M5 with that first outing. So far so good, but
definitely gonna use this a lot more. Get more used to it and see how it goes.
Definitely a step up from what I was using as my third camera, which was the
M100. I did consign that so don’t have that anymore. But definitely an
improvement with photographer stuff on this camera. Anyways, hope you enjoyed the video.

Easy Mini Abstract Art Inspiration PLUS A Color Challenge

Easy Mini Abstract Art Inspiration PLUS A Color Challenge


how have you been getting on with your
mini abstracts I have some more inspiration and a mini abstract
challenge for you today that I hope is gonna motivate your art for this week so
I introduces exercise in my art video last week and it’s actually one that I
talk about and give step by steps for in my get creating book and I’ve already
shared a little on why I like doing these types of exercises and why I think
they’re really useful and can really help in your art so if you missed that
video I will put a link below in the description for it as well as a link to
all the products that I’m using today now this week I thought I would share
the process of another mini abstract but let’s take this one up a little bit and
let’s go for challenge something that I hope will inspire you to do a mini
abstract – so are you up for it do you want a mini abstract challenge now the
challenge I’m gonna base it around colors so if you’re needing a bit of
color inspiration then this is a really handy trick and something you can use to
inspire your work or just get you started so the particular palette that
we’re going to use I want you to either pick a hot color palette or a cold color
palette and then pick a contrasting color from the other color family so if
you picked a hot color palette then you’re gonna pick a cold color to
contrast it and vice versa so get yourself started basically pick a couple
of colors before you get going that are either from the hot or the cold color
family so I’ve gone with cold for mine and my main color is going to be blue
then pick yourself a single color that you’re going to use sparingly but this
time pick it from the opposite temperature color family so for my piece
I’ve got my cold blues and then I’m gonna contrast it with a yellow which is
more of a hotter color now this particular exercise there’s another
version of this that you could also try out as well so here’s some more
inspiration to help you with your color combining and your mini abstracts as
well how about just for a complementary color colors that
sit opposite to each other on the color wheel so for instance my blue the
complementary color to blue is orange so instead of using the yellow as my
contrasting color for my blues I could have used orange today so that’s another
way of looking at this color combining that I hope you’ll have fun with it you
could probably do all of them and just do an abstract with all of them and see
which ones you like best now the other colors that you can use in
this are neutrals like blacks whites and grays so even though I’ve just picked
blue as my main color they are actually two very different blues so they work
quite nicely as contrasts in their own little color bubble and you can watch to
see how I work my main cold colors together and then how I add in my warm
color contrast in this mini abstract there’s just so many ways that you could
do this so don’t feel restricted and just go for it
I remember you don’t have to do the same with me you don’t have to use the same
colors you don’t have to use the same marks this mini abstract exercise is all
about discovering your own mark making your own light your own dislikes your
own color palettes so pick things that you really want to use today and you
really want to just experiment with now when I’m doing these mini abstracts I
really try hard to stay in a moment and to work more on impulse than planning
you can do this you can easily plan these if you want that’s entirely up to
you if you prefer to do that then go ahead and plan them but for me these
mini abstracts are much more about listening to what my gut is telling me
to do and you know where it wants to go next so it’s very reactive and I’m not
really sure where the abstract will go but it is so many that it doesn’t really
take that long before it feels finished to me and I enjoy the so minimalist feel
of these pieces but you know again you don’t have to stick with that yourself
even though we’re working on a very small piece of paper
you could just cover the whole thing and do whatever you liked with it you could
spend a long time on it you could spend a short amount of time on it whatever it
feels right for you now for my piece dad there’s something about the rhythm in it
that I really really like and there’s both a symmetry and an asymmetric
symmetry in this piece today and down to the sort of just the the different
elements that I’ve used the different ways I’ve added in some mark making and
then in the whole piece as well you can see some of the symmetry some of the
asymmetric symmetry that’s going on there and I think I really like that
about this piece but you’ll see that more when we get to the end and as this
piece grew my ideas about it grew too and I changed up layers as I went along
so this is part of what I was talking about being more reactive to it for
example I extended the dark blue area after adding the splatter texture so I
had already put down the dots I put down some dark blue I added the splatter and
then I was right I think actually I needed to make the darker blue a bigger
part of the dot pattern and I wasn’t worried about changing up the shapes of
those dots it was just another way that the details in this piece that have
reacted and changed and as I went along I also quite like the way that the brush
line tails off or kind of feathers on the bottom right-hand side and how that
adds another contrast to the kind of lines and the block colors that are here
in this piece and just as with last week’s piece I’m using a creep paint in
three different ways so I’ve got neat paint from – I’ve got watered down paint
but then I’ve also got the acrylic ink in my paint pens and adding more pattern
detour the neutral colour is a really great way to add texture and interest
but without having to introduce another active color because we picked our
colors at the beginning and we went with a very particular
a pallet so the white and black you know is a no-pressure way of adding more
details without having to worry about putting in a different color and just
shifting the way this color combination works and what I haven’t mentioned is
that one of my blue colors is actually an iridescent so there’s another texture
layer so we’re going on here and that adds to the peace as well so actually
doesn’t take that much to add a lot of texture and interest to many abstracts
I’ve only used a very small amount of product but there’s quite a lot to look
at so I have a real play with your shapes your brushes what kind of brush
marks you can get try feathering some of your layers try adding them as blocks
try adding the paint thickly or thinly that’s gonna change the look as well and
if you can add a lot of interest with just a few colors less than a handful of
colors and just some a few small marks imagine what you’re gonna do with a
larger color palette and on a larger surface so have lots of fun playing with
this one have loads of fun picking out your color palettes I would love to see
it also you know do share with me on Instagram I would be happy to come over
and have a look so don’t forget to play with the color challenge today and I
look forward to seeing your hot color palettes with cold contrasts or your
cold color palette with hot contrasts and if you’re looking for some more
video inspiration for other mixed media art then watch these videos next and
I’ll see you there

from using the mouse too much. Or in sports, for cycling, for example, I crashed a couple of times. Broke my collarbone. Really painful recovery process. NARRATOR>>With their background in athletics, professor Shtein and PhD student Erin Evke decided to come up with a better solution to measuring a body part’s

techniques, we’re able to conform to all different parts of the body, including
that of the shoulder. And then by placing sensors at specific locations on the
substrate, you’re able to capture this motion. This can be incredibly useful for
physical therapy, sports training, or even for animation films or video games.

SMOOTH CAMERA!! | Tutorial – BeamNG.Drive – Useful for Crash Compilations! [2016 / Working 0.5.6]


[Intro Music] Hello everybody, this is Jayo here. Today I’m going to show you how to get a smooth free roam camera in BeamNG.Drive! So it’s very simple, all you have to do is press “F11” to go into the world editor, and then go into “Camera”, and then into “World Camera” and then select “Smoothed Rotate”. If you want you can also change the camera speed up here but I’m going to leave it at the default which is 25. So, once you’ve done that you can just hit “F11” again to exit the world editor, and then as you can see now we have a nice smooth camera. So, that is it, it’s very simple to do as I said and this is quite handy if you want to record a crash compilation video or something like that and you want a smooth camera. So if this did help you out then make sure to give it a thumbs up and subscribe for more! If you need any more help leave a comment down below and I’ll do my best to help you. Thank you so much for watching and I’ll see you in another video! Goodbye! [Outro Music]

Advice for being comfortable on camera – Vlogging

Advice for being comfortable on camera – Vlogging


what’s up shenanigans John here and I am
back once again once again straightening my shirt out here to talk about
something that I think is extremely important for vlogging I think you’ll
agree whenever I hear the compliment John you’re in natural in front of the
camera that makes me smile ear to ear because a lot of people think being a
natural in front of the camera means you were born with the ability to do it I
disagree and I hear me out yes some people have a tendency to be
more comfortable in front of the camera and it’s probably because of a couple
things first is they probably practice quite a bit I practice quite a bit I
practice at work for giving presentations interviews and things that
I’ve done I practice talking quite a bit and talking is just vlogging many people
aren’t gonna get away with never ever practicing the craft and talking and
being comfortable speaking in front of people is a craft it is something you
have to practice practice talk I talk to myself all the time when I would run and
I’m pointing over my treadmill you’re not seeing it and I would practice
talking to myself I practice things I was gonna say in collecting my thoughts
it is you know like fine tuning a muscle you need to practice you need to be able to
conduct yourself and be able to speak logically and incoherent sentences and
not feel weird when you’re talking in front of people now a tip that I’ve said
on this channel before that I think is an extremely important tip look into the
camera and you talk like you’re talking to a person and I am I’m talking to you
right there sitting right there on your phone or desktop or wherever interview I
think that’s your game console wherever it is I am actually picturing talking to
a person somebody walks into your house and you’re talking to them it’s not
gonna be awkward why would it be any different now so look into the camera
however you need to trick your mind into it pretend that you’re talking to a
person next know what you’re gonna say before you get on camera I know that is
probably common sense but a lot of times and even in the past when I would vlog I
turn the camera on and go I’m gonna vlog I turned the camera on and it would be
awkward because I didn’t know what I was gonna say what’s up guys I’m gonna talk
to you about being good on camera okay now these type of videos I have a
general outline about what I want to talk about and I’ll get on here and I’ll
stick to that but even when I’m doing my regular family vlogs when I turn that
camera on I kind of know what I’m gonna have
going on at that time so I filmed to edit so now when I film I know what I’m
gonna be doing so that I can edit a little bit quicker years ago it used to
take me four or five hours to edit vlogs now I can zip them really quickly
because I’ve logged that way I know exactly what I’m gonna talk about I know
exactly when I’m gonna show and I piecemeal my segments like that so it
gets a lot easier at the end when I’m doing the vlogs and that’s a another tip
for you too but feeling comfortable on it is knowing exactly what you’re gonna
talk about having it planned out now not scripted because again if you script
this and you memorize it it’s gonna come across unless you’re really really
really talented I’m not I have to get on here in freestyle if I try to script
anything it comes across very plainly that I’ve scripted it and it is very
clumsy that’s the best word I have for clumsy now this is another thing I think
it goes without saying but talk with passion talk with excitement you want to
be fake on here because that will come across but again I probably wouldn’t
talk like this when I’m looking at somebody I would be like oh that
actually made me laugh so you don’t have say when you’re watching a video it is
really engaging when somebody is passionate and excited when they’re
talking to you so it’s like amping yourself up a little bit maybe ten
twenty percent more than your natural self it comes across in the camera much
better I’m using my hands a lot I told you before I talk with my hands I don’t
know what to do with them if you’re talking about something that you’ve
liked that you love that you’re passionate right let that be known
that’s why we can watch motivational speakers they’re full of energy and I
guarantee you 100% that’s not how they walk around life you don’t see Tony
Robbins walking around life completely jacked in at school needs on stage he’s
passionate he lists it’s passion from people and it’s engaging and that’s what
we’re trying to do we’re trying to engage an audience when we’re talking to
him on the camera now this last one be confident and I’m going to pull a line
from one of my favorite movies of all time boiler-room Ben Affleck’s character
says when he’s standing at the boardroom table and he’s talking to the people he
tells them to act as if and I’m not gonna go into the full because I think
it’s got some cuss words and he tells them the act is it they’re the owner of
the company is there selling these stocks to people and I’m telling you act
is that you’re the biggest vlogger on YouTube act as if you have a million
subscribers you don’t have to feel like you don’t have a voice because we’re
small youtubers do you know what you’re talking about just because I don’t have
a million subscribers behind me doesn’t mean I don’t know what I’m talking about
I am like you I have the work I’ve put in the studying I’ve
put in the effort here I’ve put out over 350 videos I know a little something
about being on YouTube now has that translated 100% a huge sub-county no it
has it but it has shown me some things over time I know how to video I know how
to edit I know how to talk to people that doesn’t change with the size of
your YouTube audience please don’t lose confidence because you’re a small
Channel don’t do that feel confident own your space this is your space this is
your channel this is your video so when you stand up or sit down or whatever
you’re doing on your vlogs remember remember what Ben Affleck says act as if
act as if you’re the biggest vlogger on YouTube and don’t ever ever lose
confidence because of the size of your channel i’ma leave you with a final
bonus tip here this is one that I’ve learned quite a bit from over the years
learn from editing I’ve gotten better over time even though I was confident on
camera I think probably most of my life but even before I vlog because of my
acting and and and podcast days but watch your videos and learn from them
really take in what you’re doing take in how you talk and adjust you can do some
practice vlogs edit those and see how you come across you can become your own
best critic in that way you can learn to director so I know most people probably
still have a problem here and their own voice and watching themselves I tell my
wife all the time when I’m watching me I’m not editing me I’m editing a person
I’m directing a person tell myself to shut up quite often when I’m editing and
that sounds funny but when I’m editing myself I have a tendency to talk a lot
and so when I’m editing that I learn from that I’m like why am I talking so
much John shut up and I’m probably gonna do it right now cuz I’m rambling every
single time you release a vlog it should be the best version of the vlog you’ve
done learn don’t ever put something out that’s subpar just because you want to
get something out so learn every single thing you put out learn from yourself
looking at yourself listening to yourself you’ll become a much better
editor and you become a much better vlogger because you’ll know what to vlog
you’ll be able to kind of boil down to what you want to say you want to prepare
you want to practice you want to get that confidence you won’t get that
passion across to everyone you’re talking to out here on YouTube alright
guys that’s all I have for you tonight please smash that thumbs up and remember
if you aren’t subscribed please consider doing so and if you’re still
with some of the things that I’ve talked about today tell me down below maybe
I’ll shoot a video and I’ll discuss those a little bit further with you guys
thanks for watching again I appreciate the support and I will see you next time
