SNIPPETS: A day visit to ADDO ELEPHANT PARK, South Africa 24 SEP 2017

So, this Saturday 24 September 2017, a very noobish cameraman took Panasonic DMC-FZ2500-GA camera to record his first 4k video (downsampled to 1080p) – learnt a lot and next videos will be better (hopefully) – We were very, very lucky and captured a wide variety of wildlife.

Editing took almost a day as I had to manually image stabilize via Adobe and this takes AGES! Will be more prepared next time and do some voice narration to go with it.

NOTE: Mixture of quality in footage – was a hot day and a lot of heat distortion/vapour and zoom issues. As it was my very first wildlife video, I’ve learnt some things.
