In the apps I use you can lock the autofocus and exposure and that is almost mandatory when shooting video. The problem was that in bright sunlight I can’t really see the screen of my phone clearly. The locking icon is so tiny that it’s easy to miss, so I have to double check from now on.
I forgot to write that I use a Xiaomi A1, with a screen that produces some 550 nits. In bright sunlight that is not enough, so I hope my next phone will have an AMOLED screen, which are even brighter.
I didn’t use the software stabilization in Shotcut, only the gimbal. For some shots I took multiple takes and the one that was most stable I used. I think the better the original the less you have to do in post production, the more time you save.
Glad you liked the video. Quite a bit different from SOTA in Austria, isn’t it?
