May 01 2021 was Easter Sunday for the Orthodox believers in Greece. I took the time of recording a video and this is the first time I am uploading such a link here.
It already has some views so please do not rush to blame me for seeking clicks! This year faithful wearing face masks gathered outside churches to attend the Divine Liturgy Service.
In such cases you have to uplod fast, both for YouTube and stock.
For the time-lapse parts I used a GoPro Hero 8 in AUTO night lapse mode (and only manual Kelvin) as I did not have the time to experiment with shutter and long times.
I se it up at a light stand and it stayed there as it was not windy.
For the main video I used my Sony A 6400 on a tripod (stabilise off) with a 18-135 lens at f5.6 (brightest after zoom). The ISO is 12.800 and above. I used the Cine4 profile. The HLG creates (for me at least) many problems at night shots, with artifacts and bad compression that cannot be saved. Due to the fast upload rush, I did zero corrections or denoise but uploaded at a high bitrate. (you can see by clicking stats for nerds!) I think that for such a night scenery, despite the crazy high ISO, noise is ok and when I will denoise for stock with neat video it will pass quality control. Naturally if it sells for $3 or more is another question!

Video makes a really good impression to me! You really captured the great atmosphere in Thessaloniki.
