This Week In Real Estate Video #14

July 6th, 2012

This week I fell in love with the quiet, elegant little video of 3376 Planta Rd, Nanaimo, BC. This is enough to make me move to Vancouver, Island! The music is soft and low key, the shots of the Strait of Georgia with the Sunshine Coast in the distance are terrific. I like the very slow camera moves. Great work Alberto, Mia and crew!

  • GoPro is so dialed in it’s just cool to watch what’s next. And yes, every realtor needs one.

  • Thanks Larry, great stuff, and would like to start shooting video also.
    I’d like to know what the minimum amount of equipment I would need is.
    I am shooting my stills with a Nikon D-300, or D-700, but would like to get a camera (least amount of investment) with wide lens and lighting.
    Some of these videos look like they were shot available lighting. I was wondering if any of our fellow real estate photographers are shooting with any basic minimal equipment, with good luck.
    Also want to know what the realtors are willing to pay for a video. My average price for a med size property shooting stills is about $169, but an elevated image is an additional $75-$100 extra. Some realtors don’t know what is involved with shooting, lighting and editing.

    I wish the Go pro would give us the results we need for quick walk-throughs.

  • @Eric – I did a post about a year ago ( that talks about what you need as a minimum to get started with video. I think you could get into video using your current glass and one of the new low-end cropped sensor cameras like the Nikon D3200.. they all have video and you could use your current glass.

  • I’m so torn between the GoPro and one of the waterproof P&S. Primary concern on the GoPro is the stills capability which on their website looked like limited to UWA and distortion. In terms of video, I have an idea for some B-Roll involving submerging the camera, either on a pole and/or on a free dive (not scuba). Unfortunately, the reviews on the GoPro noted underwater not as clear as their promotional video, and on the Nikons, Canons, Panasonics and Pentax capable of up to 30 feet, a high incidence of leakage. Unfortunately, the lens/camera rental place a couple miles from me doesn’t carry the Go Pro, but that may be the way to go if can find a rental outlet. If rental is available, that might be the way to go, then get a better 4/3 or similar small camera for my other hobbies like bicycling. I have taken a DSLR on my bike with the longst being a 85 mile day trip through the Everglades NP.

    Would it be too cruel if diving into a spring, credits rolling as I am rising up to the surface…then abruptly stop the video just shy of the surface. That would be funny!

  • Nice ride Larry. A couple of years ago we drove from Sarasota, through everglades to see Clyde Butcher’s photo gallery, ( We pulled into the parking lot, but my wife wouldn’t get out of the car or stop screaming because of the 14 foot alligators resting in the parking lot. I tried to get some photos with my D-700, and the15mm lens that was mounted, but couldn’t hold it steady while running into the gallery. I don’t think I have the same nerves as you to dive into an Everglades spring, especially with the albino pythons slithering. Perhaps a nice cool dive into a lake in Mt St Helens is safer.

  • Thought the ( The West Real Estate Program) was excellent . Just very professional but a relaxed way to get the message across.

  • The video was great. You have that talent to capture everyone to look at the video and be amaze by the things that we saw in it. I love the house, the whole place and I like how the house and the surroundings are being emphasize in that video. Great work.
