4k 60p Videos of Pan Am

Postby Vakharn » Thu Sep 07, 2017 7:57 pm

Hi Guys,

I just picked up a new Panasonic GH5 to replace my venerable Canon HG20. As such, I'm going to be uploading a lot of 4k 60 fps videos of Pan Am in future. I used to post my videos in here but I've been inactive for quite a while so I figured I'd post a new topic in case anyone is interested.

Here's my first video, a couple shots of SEPO two nights ago in Andover.

I'll post more here as I take them.

EDPO gives a smoke show, followed by POED in the fog and crossing the Merrimack after dark.

These videos are amazing. Thank you for posting them!

I would be interested to see what you would do with the Downeaster.

Thanks! I believe I captured the Downeaster in a couple of these videos, though obviously freight is more of my focus.

Another new video, mostly night shots with my new f1.7 lens and they came out pretty good. Caught LA-5 a few times and DOBO twice.

The clouds relented enough to let a vibrant sunset peek through as EDPO left Lawrence yard on 10/7/17. A pink twilight remained to illuminate him as he rolled through Haverhill interlocking. After dark he met his Westbound counterpart POED at Plaistow, where a slow roll-by was performed to check for a fault announced by the defect detector before both trains continued on into the night.

For some reason, YouTube isn't allowing me to view these videos at 4K resolution, regardless of which browser or device I use. Nevertheless, they look quite spectacular at 1080P/60FPS. Thanks for sharing them. :-)

If your monitor, video card and or bandwidth cannot handle it you won't have the option.

It's odd that it wouldn't let you at least try 2560x1440, though as newpylong said it does restrict it based on a number of factors. Glad you enjoyed them none the less.

Right, I thought it was strange also because in the past YouTube has given me the 1440 option on some videos, but maybe something has changed on their end.
