A visit to Dorset's Jurassic coast, the amazing beach at Charmouth. Then a short drive along the coast into Devon, to a small Fishing Harbour fantasically named "Beer". Shot with the DJI Spark and the Samsung Galaxy S8.

1st March 2018 A region of cold air, dubbed The Beast from the East hit Somerset pretty hard. The first ever Red Weather Warning was issued for the area, and my home and workplace were right in the middle of it. I made my way to work as usual, but it became clear that the rest of the day would be very unusual indeed. For the first time in my 10 years of working there, our company closed hundreds of stores. During my lunch, I went for a walk around Taunton town centre. The river was frozen over and there were some great photo opportunities. By 2pm, the Red Weather Warning was proving accurate and we sent home everyone who was unable to walk back. Being a Manager, I stayed back, however by 3:30pm I had reports that the main road near home was covered in snow and I swiftly departed. This aims to be a cinematic (ish) vlog of how the day evolved. All videos and images were either taken on my Samsung Galaxy S8 phone, or my Panasonic Lumix TZ-90 digital camera, with a quick snippet from my DJI Spark drone towards the end.

A test of various features of the Panasonic Lumix TZ-90. The slow motion capabilities at 100fps, 720p, at 200fps, VGA. The timelapse mode. The 30x optical zoom. Unsurprisingly, the performance of the camera, and it's video quality, is drastically improved by better lighting. In the High Speed Video mode, the low light performance is barely usable, but in the midday conditions, it excelled. The subjects of this test were the local Blue tits and Great tits, with a Robin thrown in for good measure.

Paul McCartney: On the Run Tour O2 Arena, 5th December 2011 Paul dedicates a touching version of Something to George Harrison by playing the first half on a Ukulele, as George was "a rather good Ukulele player". He apparently "liked George Formby". Then the band kicks in and finishes the song in true form.

I went for a walk in my neighbouring orchard to try the Active Track mode. All was going well, until I paused the active track but it kept flying sideways at speed. Were it not for my quick reactions to pull up on the controller, it would have ended up in the tree. Missed it by a hair. My practice editing to music seems to be paying off.
