Making cool travel videos isn’t always easy. For us it involves carrying a lot equipment around. Stabilization with a glidecam, aerials with a drone and some fancy motorized time-lapse gear are the tools we rely on to capture our adventures.

    Good job friends, excellent recommendations, greetings from Medellin Colombia ??

    This is not travelling, this is working and get stressed.

  4. Great info. Thanks for doing this! I really don't know how you have time to film all that. Subbed!

  5. NorCalCrisp says:

    New Sub here. Great work, happy adventures and happy smiles. Love it.

  6. Kool video folks and nice to see you sharing my home country with the world ?? I have been trying to get a kit together consisting of all these elements unfortunately I really have to be mindful on what size gear I would like to take as I'm into solo bowhunting and want to be able to catch footage like Donnie Vincent who is also a bow hunter (that stuff really inspired me) even though he had a professional crew with him in Alaska for 3 months in some off the trail insane places

    I would looove to replicate that solo styles throughout my country of New Zealand ..I only have so far a Sony nex5n with a 50-200mm lens (kit) for my general taking of beautiful photos as well as some video footage just purchased a DJI osmo mobile, a iPhone 7+ (for my cinematic video footage time lapse as well as self tracking footage,plus I run my gps tracker to track where I am going and where I have been)

    I have 3 Chinese Style action cams (but would love the new hero 5 black with a wearable gimbal because it has many features I am looking for as an off the grid bow hunter) Q555 tripod and some time in the future would love to get the DJI mavic (cannot afford that yet but it's the size of it that appeals to me extremely compact) plus I have been thinking of a way of a slider that somehow has 2 functions for my hunting purposes and my sliding time lapse ..

    But this def has to be compact because if I do take an animal I also have to carry that out so compact and light weight is the key for me ..keep up the fabulous work I absolutely love this stuff ??

  7. you people are awesome..

  8. go for more colour saturation when editing… beside that it s epicly good✌?

    subscribed, greetings from Timaru, NZ :-)

  10. Rahul Nair says:

    Thanks for the video. I liked it very much and it was really an educational session for a beginner. I have a few questions regarding the Stabilization.

    Do you think the Hero GoPro Karma and Hero 5 Camera work in -25 kind of atmosphere?
    How can we shoot on heavy mountaineering? I am preparing for Death Zone Peaks

  14. Ellie Heard says:

    Hi there, I am really confused about the whole NTSC vs PAL thing. I live in Turkey (so we'll call that Europe) and bought a Canon 700D in turkey (set to PAL out of the box). Because of the lights in Europe, should I continue using PAL? Because I want to avoid that light flickering that can happen if you use the wrong setting when filming in indoor lighting. Then, if so, should I set all of my cameras to PAL (like my GoPro for example)? And lastly, are my videos fully viewable in the United States?? Thanks for any help you can give!! Or if you know of anyone to refer me to… it's hard to get all of that answered by just searching the web ;)

  15. what editor software? thanks a mill

  16. Tamil Borah says:

    it really awesome for sharing your work sir …sir can you visit india. i would like to join in your adventure journey. india is amazing for that

  17. This is so complex and isn't neutral.. You look there like a staff..
    We don't want to make a commercial video..
    If This is hobby 2 actions camera (plus maybe 360 degree) are enough..
    Do it simple.
