    Thank you...That is very kind.

    I just started trying to do videos. All I have is a iPhone for vids & pics but I`m trying to learn.

    This a (learning) "first attempt". Please let me know your thoughts on the video above. Thanks.

    BTW-There is a LOT of real estate on a Escalade. I have a Raptor to do next...more Real Estate.

    Thank you!...I prefer to start the vid at the front of the vehicle.

    A few lessons learned...

    1) Wear a white shirt when doing a video of a white vehicle.

    2) Wear a black shirt when doing a video of a black vehicle.

    3) Settings = 1080p, 50Mbps and the Frame Rate = 60 FPS.

    Why 60 fps? Less motion blur and smoother (less wobble).
    The file size is slightly larger with 60 fps E.G. 175 vs 150.

    4K on the other hand (for the same length) would be > 350.
    4K on my iPhone 6s is max 30 fps (good for landscape etc.)
    4K is not a good format for streaming social media videos.

    4) Video Stabilization - I prefer not to use software if possible.
    Most cause a slight ripple in the video when it tries to stabilize.

    Here's an example of the YouTube video stabilization software.


    5) Doing a "walk around" causes up and down/in and out wobble.
    Bend you knees, walk slowly, hold the iPhone close to your chest.

    Like I said earlier...I'm new at making the "walk around" videos.
    I'm still learning and I have a LOT more to learn...but I'm trying.
