Thanks for the positive response guys, and of course the CC
First off: Stabilisation
: My lens and body both don't have IS, in fact, the only stabilised lens I have is my kitlens, which is kind of gathering dust since I have some more lenses. My benefit was that I only used the 10-20 mm lens in this video, which makes shake less obvious.
Of course I should have used a tripod, but I kind of like being able to move covertly. Maybe I'll bring my monopod, that should help at least a bit.
I should indeed display gridlines in on the viewfinder, I completely forgot about that. Good tip.
Here's a clincher. Nikon, being douchy as hell, decided to upgrade pretty much every current body with a new firmware, except the D90. The D3s, D300s, both can do manual video, so why can't the D90 with a new firmware?
Right now, I'm stuck with the full-auto liveview stream, nothing more than that. The only thing I can do is lock the exposure, and that's about it.
the D90 also has horrible banding when the light diminishes (unneccesarily ups the ISO), and some bad stairstepping (it drops every 8th line).
In short: nikon really didn't pay much more attention to this than "oh just write the liveview output to a file somewhere"
Now finally, the icecream lady.
Utrecht CS has this Icecream shop, and i decided it might look cool on film (wideangle + curved counter often goes well). However, after about...2 seconds at most, this girl came out, demanding me to tell me what this was for. I answered truthfully, telling here it was personal, non commercial. She told me that it was not allowed to film...pretty much the whole thing. Crew, store sign, wals, counter. Nothing! I already had some footage so I didn't really care, but...come on. It's not like I'm a terrorist, or peeking under the employee's skirts or anything? Kind of makes you wonder what they are hiding...
Oh wel, their loss. No free advertising for them, and no revenue from me and my buddies anymore. They can "shove their cones where the sun don't shine"
Also, just a final note:
wideangle filming is FUN. Pretty much everyone I encountered did not mind being filmed, at all, and those who did mind, stepped out of the picture......or so they thought
