Jim noticed the more-or-less constant jitters in the Phantom II footage that I posted the other day. It's annoying, and iMovie's anti-shake processing does nothing to remove it. Can anyone recommend other, better post-processing filters for stabilizing video?

Here's another shortcoming of the system: the image below is a still shot of my rooftop solar panels. What could be causing the periodic distortion? Is this what they mean by 'jello'? The camera has a 140-degree field of view, and there's a setting I haven't tried yet to capture stills in three- or five-frame bursts (but not bracketed). Maybe this is why,

Jim,

The term "jello" refers to a slight undulating movement that shows up in videos, not stills. It's the bane of many multi-rotor (MR) flyers, and has recently been resolved with the advent of the brushless gimbal. These are controlled by a separate circuit board/controller to keep the camera steady and level.

Not familiar with the term "periodic distortion." Could you mean "lens distortion" that's prevalent in wide-angle lenses? If so, there's a feature in Photoshop (CS6, anyway) called the Adaptive Wide Angle filter that does a pretty good job at straightening the lines near the edge of the frame. It has a preset for the GoPro cameras, not sure about the new Phantom II camera.

If you've not done so already, suggest you spend some time on the following MR forums:

Good morning Jack. Thanks for the info. Zim will be interested in all that, I don't have one of those multi rotor deals. I am in line for a Movi, but I think at that price all the unwanted nuances vanish.

Good morning James! Glad you liked it. Sometimes I think the most heartfelt, genuine prayer is a gasp in amazement at what God accomplishes effortlessly. My guess is, there were thousands of folks who just went to work with their heads down yesterday morning, never seeing the majestic display that was theirs for the taking. In some deep corners of the world that kind of thing is the only "Bible" people will ever see, and in those corners it is my belief that that will be more than sufficient.

Thanks for the info, Jack (these were my questions, not Jim's). By periodic distortion I meant the still-frame equivalent of 'jello': straight vertical lines in the real world become subtly sinusoidal in photos (see my photo of the solar panel array, above).

Jim,

Love the morning sunrise. Lately I have been setting the camera down and just taking those in quietly, working for a good balance between my hobby/desire and just listening to the beauty provided.

Thanks again for sharing.

Howdy still alive and kicking
Woke up this afternoon after a 24 hour work shift and thought lets mail the CPS guys to ask when my body is finally ready.
I delivered the body 4 working weeks ago at the CPS service center, this was the answer i got.

I will ask the Technician to finish your repair order asap.
Come on what a lousy customer service.
They told me that the waiting time for silver was something more than five days but it's already a month not pleased at all.

Now that's off my chest i want to wish you all a great weekend...

I still cherish the moment. While stuck on the Harbor Freeway, in LAed, we had a stunning Sunset. Wanting to share, I honked at the guy next to me, and he looked and look back at me, as if to say "What". His loss, but maybe it was a test, from God. I know, I passed.

But given that video is nothing but a stream of stills, you will see the same effect in each frame...

Ergo, you can see "Jello" in a still shot. Hey! "Jello Shot!"

Thanks Rusty. The 5D3 is a great camera and I'm sure you'd enjoy using one. It is even a better photographic platform if you can get Zim to train the pixels like he did on mine

Here is a B300 that our Texas members may see from time to time. I believe it is based in Midland; however, this is it departing Scottsdale late in the afternoon.

A gorgeous property Jim. I'm looking at the surrounding vegetation and wondering how many big 'ol Texas Whitetails call this area home
