Tallest volcano of Africa and part of my V7S project
(Scroll down for my training diary)
Preparations and training
Only two days to go… Only two days to go. Trained a lot within past month with MTB and eMTB: 981 Kilometer and 29.160 meters difference in altitude – and nevertheless am very curious what to expect 🙂
Real thriller The Kilimanjaro project drives me nuts. Batteries are still in Europe, flight has been canceled. Next plane will leave on Saturday but we only will fly four days later, it’s becoming a real thriller…
Making Of Shooting Did a lot of test shooting today as also captured some „making of“ and some footage for a trailer. Means storyboard nearly is done for Kilimanjaro e-Bike project and yeah, just one week to go!
First e-Bike Training in local Taunus This week I first time had the chance to test my Kilimanjaro bike in local Taunus mountains. Am no Pro but this bike is a monster 😉 And of course I still do use the training to test some picture angles and to optimize the Kibo storyboard – being […]
Training in Austria Finally got my eBike for the Kibo project (Scott E-Genius 700 Plus Tuned). During holiday with family in Austria I had the possibility to test it in the mountains and doing some first tests about battery life. Biked sometimes from Altaussee at the Panoramastraße up to Loser mountain, 11 km with an […]
My first MTB experiences Already my first experience riding a mountain bike in 2005 has been very dirty 🙂 And offered pure thrills at one of the worlds most dangerous roads in Bolivia while going down from La Paz at 4.700m down to the jungle and Yolosa at 1.100m. With at that time many upcoming […]
Remote Control App for camera Tip for the Olympus Ol.Share App. You can switch the settings/ modus for remote control usage from Live View to Remote Control. Then you’ll get a really huge release button which is much more less dangerous to press while biking 🙂
Bike Selfies Playing a bit with the Olympus Ol.Share App using it as a remote control for my E-M1 MarkII (with the 8mm Fisheye lens) to be able to shoot new angles just by myself 🙂
First Test Footage First test footage for my actual Kilimanjaro project. Testing various camera angles while riding my bike. It’s not that easy to ride a bike with only one hand while filming with the other one and eyes being focused on best angle – ouch 🙂 Next step will be to film best angles […]
Preparations and camera angles Another preparations for Kilimanjaro. Writing a storyline for training and the related Making Of. And puzzling out how best to fix camera.
Training for the jungle Beginning of my training for Kilimandscharo at let’s say not the best weather conditions. But as a volcano hunter I love it to be dirty and muddy 🙂 And with wet roots and rocks a perfect training for the jungle part.
