Film Gear

Let me say first off that I’m not a film maker, but I’ve developed a huge interest in film making, video, whatever you want to call it, mainly to record the activities that happen in Gippsland as well as those that I undertake, such as our High Country Cruises. Photography is still one medium that I use, but I’ve increasingly tried to expand that to video. I think I’ve pointed out previously that I was never interested in video in the past and that none of my cameras were really that great for video. All that has changed and things have certainly moved on. I’ve already started to include videos that I’ve posted on YouTube and I thought, in this COVID age and for what it’s worth, to include a section covering YouTube videos that I’ve made about video gear that I use.
