So this is probably one of those desperation flights... Had to get up and flex the batteries.:p Its changed so fast in our area, now we set in for the long white haul. Anyway, its a long watch, but if you like Beethoven, and trees, you're in!

At around 5:20 you can see some snow flying by in the camera.

Nice video, looks very wintery!

We are getting snow down this way too. This morning it was cold (-11ºC) and clear and sunny, now 3 hours later we are in the midst of a snow squall. It's very snowy and wintery out. Looks like I'll be getting the snow blower out. Kids are itching for a snow day!

Enjoy your day!

Nice job Robin, loved the Moonlight Sonata background. Relaxed me to the point of starting to get drowsy, LOL. No reflection on your vid but more of the dark dismal late afternoon. As always appreciate you taking the time.

Incredibly smooth control, some of the best panning I've seen from a Spark. Moonlight Sonata was the perfect accompaniment to the wintry scene. Such contrasts over a scant few weeks, but such are seasonal changes. Very fine work, Robin. Looking forward to more. Thanks for sharing.

Nice video. Scenery looks a lot like it does around here for the week or so, lotsa white stuff. Temperatures last couple of days have been in the minus teens (C) for the high.

Wish I could get those smooth pans. Most of my fly time has been at lower altitudes, just above tree tops. Winds were usually around 10 - 20 kph. At these relatively low altitudes I think I'm likely experiencing significant wind gusts. Am I right in believing these gusts would account for some of the jerkiness I've experienced in my pans?

Well.... wind is a factor, but really, its about the gentle push of the sticks. One trick is to be moving ever so slightly up or along as you pan, hovering and panning is not going to be as smooth. Remember too that I did upscale the video via interpolation to 60fps, so there is some smoke and mirrors going on there, as Final Cut Pro was basically morphing an extra frame between each of the originals...

Also, many of us forget about Tripod mode. It will help with the stead-stick process!
