Smoky and noisy Jalan Alor is a popular ‘food street’ in Kuala Lumpur. Patronised by both locals and tourists, the stretch comes alive only after dark. For this special night-time P.O.V., I used the Panasonic Leica DG Summilux 25mm f/1.4 ASPH prime lens paired with the Olympus OM-D (EM-5).
White balance and exposure was left at Auto in P Mode while focus was pre-set manually. Audio via the on-board stereo microphones capturing ambience from both sides of the road. Rigging was handled with a Manfrotto 190 tripod with centre column mounted horizontally on the dashboard.
Resolution was set at 1920 x 1080 Full HD Fine. No colour corrections applied. Titles. trimming and WMV compression handled with Edius.
This video was made as a quick test of the OM-D’s 5-axis image stabilization and the camera’s auto reaction to changing and mixed lighting. Still image below is a screen capture from the edit timeline. Watch the video in Full HD if your hardware and network supports it.
