Vacation videos vs photos

January 8th, 2016

Selfie sticks are a big hit today because, well, we want to document and remember ourselves, what we look like and where we have been. A video, on the other hand, showcase motion, tells a story and transport you back with all the sights, sound, taste, smell, touch, intact. Well almost. But it’s close.

I had the honor to spend 13 long days with old friends in Hong Kong, Niseko and Osaka. It was about the same time right after I purchased the new DJI Osmo, which made carrying a steady camera so much easier.

Long story short, we made up our minds to just memorialize this absolutely wonderful vacation we had. 99% of the footages were shot with the Osmo and it wasn’t that hard. I wasn’t shooting all the time, just occassionally and the edit? Took me 3-4 hours to complete. All in 4K!!!

How often do you try to remember the beautiful vacation in Hawaii or Italy you had and can only bring back mini fragments of memories? 20 years down the road, I’ll be looking at this video and it’ll bring me back to the powdered slopes of Niseko, drinking the luscious, creamy Sapporo Classic with old friends, hearing the screams and laughters of the little ones, holding the tender hands of my beloved.
