MARBELLA 2019 - DJI OSMO POCKET
Most years, myself and a group of close friends and family holiday to Marbella, Spain. It’s become quite a pilgrimage for us!
This year I decided to take the little DJI Osmo Pocket with me. For those who aren’t aware, the Osmo Pocket is a tiny camera with a built in gimbal (stabiliser). As it’s smaller than a mobile phone, it’s a great little device for holidays and travel videos. It records remarkably good 4K video as well as high quality RAW stills, and can go absolutely anywhere with you. Before the Osmo, those of us who like to get a bit creative documenting our holidays would have had to take a much larger camera with other bulky hardware in order to obtain such high quality media, so it really is a game changer. I purchased it a few months ago out of intrigue more than anything and this is actually only the second time I’ve properly used it. I’m so glad I did. I have to say that I’m so impressed with it, i’ll be adding it to my wedding filmmaking kit, unlikely to be used often, but another tool in the arsenal none the less.
For our trip this year we booked a stunning villa in Nueva Andalucía, a mile or two from Puerto Banus. Last year due to my diary being fully booked I had to skip on a holiday, so needless to say I was well in need of a break. What a time we had. The group that came with us this year was just amazing. Some of my nearest and dearest, I’m missing them all already!
The Osmo came pretty much everywhere with me and over the course of the week, I managed to obtain some awesome video footage of the goings on. So much so that I had to put together a little video the day I got back. So here is a little snapshot of our trip. Locations featured are mainly around the Marbella, Nueva Andalucía and Puerto Banus areas. We went to some great bars and restaurants including Ocean Club Marbella, Pangea, and many others. I would definitely recommend Marbella to anyone who likes to have lots of fun in the sun!
I hope you enjoy this short video.
Roll on next year!
