Happy New Year everyone!

I recently saw a post where someone was shooting in fog and asking how to process the pic to make it look clear.  My advice was not to try at all but rather embrace the fog!

I shot one of my favorite videos on a foggy day and it added a wonderful element.   
Here's my video, it was all taken within a few blocks of my house on a foggy morning.



Have a great day!

Jim

Oooooh!  Foggy cemetery with ethereal music track... like the opening scene of a ghost movie.  Just need that guy with the deep voice that does all the voiceovers with his signature start: "In a world where [insert scary scenario]

To emulate the fog we get here, I just cut a ping pong ball in half and place it over the camera lens.  Perfect reproduction.

That would do it!

Thanks, all pure chance, couldn't see much at all on the screen while flying, got home and had some nice footage.

Yeah, I love "gifts" like that.  Hard to know whether you have gold or crap when you're shooting!

I'm curious to know how much better these shots would be with a P4P, really love the big sensor and improved data rate/compression.
