No prizes for guessing what the title means... :)

This was almost all shot 30p and conformed to 25p to get a little bit of slow motion and to make the handheld more acceptable.

This is a simple little piece of shots I did using the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera whilst arriving in Venice and going down the canals o the location of the workshop.

I wanted a more classically shot example of footage from the camera even though a lot of this is handheld using the Zacuto Marauder Rig ( gopb.co/ marauder) which gave more steadiness and reduced the rolling shutter issues. The tripod had way too much fine vibration going through it from the boat's motor but there are still a few shots from the tripod. I REALLY needed a Gondola!

Minimal warp Stabilise was used in Premiere CC to steady it more. It's a tricky plugin when there is a lot of work to do and the frame changes so much, after all the boat is moving the whole time....it's close to being spot on though!

This was shot for the upcoming part 3 of the Blackmagic Pocket Camera review which is coming in a couple of weeks or so after I have spent more quality time with the camera!

Glass used was Lumix 7-14mm F4 and 12-35 F2.8. Both had a variable ND on. The 7-14 had filters steps ups pushed over the leaf and the 82mm thread ed heliopan was screwed over it as you can see in the picture.
