The Final Wall Runs: Rockingham Meihan Video

Following on from my last post that covered the final Rockingham Meihan drift event, I put together my video footage from the day and threw it on YouTube. Once again, I used my trusty old camcorder to film this footage. Enjoy!

Drift Matsuri 2018 on Tape

I make no secret of the fact that I’m far from the best photographer or videographer out there. I take pictures of things I like and film things that I see using the fairly average equipment that I have and, thankfully, a lot of people seem to enjoy it! For the most recent Drift Matsuri event at Anglesey, I decided to try something different and chose to film the event through the lens of an almost twenty-year old camcorder.

It’s amazing how the different format altered my filming style, but it also made me think harder about what I wanted to film. In particular, the classic optical zoom feature was particularly handy and made me rethink my approach to some shots.

Getting this technology (which is quite possibly as old as many of the readers of this website) to work with my modern equipment took a great deal of time, research and experimentation and I hope that you enjoy the full video below.
