Hey all,


First, HEY!.


Now to the topic at hand :).


I have 3 spots that I want to shoot, each with vfx elements to it for my reel.


I don't have immediate access to good cameras so I'm left, like many folks are, to my own devices.  What devices?  Indeed.


I have a samsung galaxy s5.  I've looked up the back plate setting, Speed(I can manually set with Cinema fv5 app), etc, now it's just a matter of seeing if I can get better shots.


I also have access to my Toshiba Camilleo H5, which does shoot in HD, but again, not exactly RED, if you know what I mean.


I need to track them obviously with various methods using Syntheyes, Mocha, whatever when needed.


One of the shots requires, a hovering UI that the user swipes and eventually selects and a 3d object materializes.  The camera wasn't going to be moving, and in my test shot, it seemed ok.  For that shot I couldn't use SE right?  Since the camera isn't moving?  Or should I shoot the sequence moving the camera verly slowly(using my chair as a dolly LOL).


I hate having to shoot sequences like this, but it's all I have for now.


Any tips? Be gentle.
