I'm not overly concerned about this, but, was wondering what you all thought:

The car has done this since I got it four years and 26k miles ago, I have similar videos in the same set.

Just wondering what you thought about the quantity of smoke and what this might mean.

Here's the oil analysis I had done a couple of years ago - will be interested in seeing what the CURRENT analysis says.

Yes. If blue smoke after engine start up and not after, it's the value stem seals. Replacement would require removal of the camshafts, then pressurizing the cylinders one at a time to remove and replace the seals to prevent the valve from falling into the combustion chamber.
