It's a Chinese camera, but has a German lens

Police and PCSOs surrounded by protesters, but it was all prefectly peaceful. One PCSO did (off camera) seem to be bothering a woman unnecessarily though.

You could really feel the depth of this gentleman's feeling in the way he spoke, even though he spoke with the utmost politeness:

Thumbs up Re: Photographers rights rally on Saturday

Those are nice quality videos - good sound too.

Were you using separate a microphone or was it inbuilt?

Hi Pol, thanks for that I used an Olympus Pen E-P2 and no, I just used the internal microphones, but they are stereo, unlike many other cameras that have a video recording facility. Olympus' experience in audio recorders have have rubbed off.

The videos are quite heavily compressed (except for the very first one, which I uploaded straight from the camera file), so I'm pleased that the quality has not been eroded too badly.

Excellent quality imho. I'd noticed, from the exif, you'd taken the stills with the E-P2 but wondered if you might've used a dedicated Digtal movie camera + external microphone for the videos (as they're so good).

Re: Photographers rights rally on Saturday

All very interesting stuff Ian, and Kudos goes for you for making the effort to attend the gathering. Seems like it was also a good occasion to hone your video skills with the E-P2

Re: Photographers rights rally on Saturday

It's been commented that there is a difference in the colour between the movies and the stills - the latter were processed by me in LR and the movies are unchanged. The camera did go for a cooler white balance. I'd be interested to know which people prefer here

I prefer the colours in the videos. I agree they're probably cooler but they also seem to be brighter and true.

The stills don't seem to have what I would regard as true blacks - there seems to be a slight reddish/brown hue overlay. For example - in the first still you posted at the start of this thread, everyone seems to have an auburn tint to their hair. The background buildings also have a red/brownish tinge.
