Against the wobble

Jo commented that the video I shot under windy conditions on Iona was remarkably steady. I did my best to hold the camera as steady as I could whilst filming, but the wind got the better of me and so the original film sequence is quite wobbly. The final version on YouTube, linked in this blog post, was auto-corrected using image-stabilization filters built into the YouTube service, hence the much smoother panning effects: you can tell that the image has been corrected by the wobbly trigonometry post and sky at the end of the sequence. It’s very impressive that an automatic process can make such a huge difference.
