American Cherry Pie Frappuccino at Starbucks Japan

I recently finished a five day vacation in Tokyo and decided to see what shorts I could make out of the trip. Honestly, the first video is about Starbucks because I’m guessing it’s going to be the easiest to edit. I need to work on producing more content.

Starbucks
I was severely underwhelmed by the American Cherry Pie Frappuccino at Starbucks Japan. It was really expensive, tiny, and most importantly not that great. It was overly sweet, though it got better as the flavors melded together. And at the end of the day, I ate the whole thing. Go figure.

Technical Thoughts
There are a whole bunch of color grading issues, I know. From mismatched color temps to crushed blacks and blown out whites, it’s a bit of a mess. But I got the video done in a day. Yay!

What I learned
The Fujifilm X-T2 is, as much as I’ve tried to make it, not conducive to being a video and stills camera at the same time. The numerous dials that need to be manually turned make it way too inconvenient.

Another thing I learned on this trip is that you can’t shoot stills with neutral density filter on. Well, you can, but your shutter speed will be all broke. Most of my stills are blurry despite the minimum 1/60 shutter speed setting.
