In my recent trip to Las Vegas, I took a few clips of the Luxor hotel (where I was staying) and put together a quick 4K cinematic test. The results weren’t too shabby. The lighting at Luxor hotel is terrible but it was a great test to do a low-light test. Most of my clips actually have noise in the original clips as there was simply not enough lights in the pyramid. I HAD to use some type of noise reduction program and fortunately I had Neat Video plugin for Adobe Premiere which basically gets rid of noise.

About 20 years ago, I stumbled onto Pacifica, California, which is a small coastal city about 10 miles south of San Francisco. Ever since then, I’ve really enjoyed playing golf and even fishing at the Pacifica Pier for crabs. I would drive 45 minutes just to check out Pacifica every weekend. Well, 6 years ago, I ended up buying my ocean-view dream house here and Pacifica is one of the best cities to live in the world in my opinion.
It’s always fun to make some 4K cinematic videos with new smartphones and today I decided to make one in Thailand since the scene is so different. What I realized by making this video with the LG G5 is that there are some wide-angle shots you can really get creative with.
