Do you change clip preview frames? I try to do so but it's quite cumbersome on Shutterstock for example. I think there are a lot of clips which look much more attractive for buyers with custom set preview frame.

I change thumbnails on most of my clips. On most sites it's relatively easy, but on Shutterstock it is indeed a bit backward.
Upload - wait for approval - portfolio dropdown menu > click approval status: video - find batch number - edit each video seperately - save
A bit of a runaround, at least it's not like the old iStock method where you had to upload a 360px thumbnail screen capture together with your upload...

I like your slow motion shots BTW, the lighting is great on your "fishtank" setup with the fruit falling into the water. I suppose these absolutely require a modified preview frame. Not cool when when you have a cool action shot like these and end up with a black thumbnail.
What do you use to shoot these shots (if you don't mind me asking) FS700, FS5, maybe Phantom Flex???

Thank you! Wish I had those :) It's Sony RX10 mII. Phantom Flex 4K allows you to keep really A LOT more fine object details even in HD.

Very nice results considering the RX10 mII upscales depending on the set recording resolution. Native recording rez (1,8241,026 at 240fps, 1,676566 at 480fps and 1,136384 at 960fps) also streaching out its bit rate, 100Mbit/s across all these frames to an 8bit codec XAVC-S. Sorry I'm a tech nerd...
On paper this doesn't look good but on screen it looks great - thats where it counts!
I'll be playing with a Phantom Flex soon on a commercial shoot, no stock oppourtunities unfortunately for me but I can't wait anyway.

I've pulled this thread off topic a bit too much - I'll stop now :)

You are right about lack of bitrate, smooth apples look much more natural than highly detailed rough oranges for example.
It's OK about tech since I'm considering Phantom Flex 4K rent for 1 day. I would appreciate if you'd share your experience later. It's about $1000 per 24 hours in Moscow now. All those vegetables and splashes will look much nicer I guess :)
