GY-LS300 travels to Ghana
Bob Walters from 'iPhone Movie Making’ travelled to Ghana with his GY-LS300 4KCAM camcorder to film a promotional video for Civic Response, a leading natural resource and environmental governance policy advocacy organisation. “The conditions in Ghana were very testing at times,” explained Bob, "as when we went north to Kumasi and out into the rainforest, the temperatures were pushing 40 degrees and 80% humidity. Luckily, the camera wasn't affected by the heat and therefore made my job of filming an easy task.”
Whilst in Ghana, Bob brought donated iPhones to teach environmental workers how to use their phones to report first-hand on issues affecting their community. With his GY-LS300, Bob wanted to sympathetically highlight what Civic Response do; he interviewed people across various communities, allowing them to voice their needs, which depend greatly on natural resources. Making the most of the GY-LS300’s large sensor, Bob was able to create a bokeh effect on shoots, with a cinematic 'out-of-focus background' adding a new creative edge to the video.
