    Spend part of my weekend sorting through video clips from a trip to Europe last week. I'm no video editor and totally new to this, but video takes reliving your memories to a whole new level!

    Really awesome example of what can be done with DSLR video--very inspiring. Can I ask a couple of questions?

    1) Did you shoot B&W in camera, or convert in post?

    2) Other than possibly the B&W conversion, did you do any brightness or contrast correction, or is this essentially "straight out of camera?"

    3) What software did you edit in? The reason I ask is that I really liked the sequences in which you sped up and slowed down the footage and I'm wondering how you went about doing that in your editor.

    Thanks for sharing this. I pre-ordered the 7D the day it was announced in the hopes of producing much the same type of video as you have here.

    Hey Ben and thanks!! I put this video together in a day, actually more like half a day. I owe it all to the ease of the software: I recently got iMovie '09 and I was waiting and waiting for it because it had all the features I wanted, specifically the ability to speed/slow your clips and image stabilization.

    (Although I did use the IS on a couple of the clips, I don't reallize notice any additional smoothness, so YMMV.)

    It's still best to take your time when you're shooting, I found out. And always make sure you use a sturdy tripod unless you have a few thousand to spend on one of those crazy camera stabilizers that Baldy posted.

    So these were all 5D clips, shot in color. AFAIK you can't change that in-camera so I just clicked the b/w setting in iMovie to switch it over. There are lots of other presets, although some of them are a bit cheesy. I was going for the olde timey look anyway, so the slight exposure blips and artifacts I got were actually quite nice. :D You can adjust the exposure and brightness (and contrast, and saturation, etc) right in iMovie although doing that tends to make things a bit grainy. A few instances I needed to bump it up but I tried to keep that to a minimum.

    The 5D firmware now allows you to adjust the ISO and aperture settings in-camera, while you're shooting. Many thanks to Ivar for showing me how to do this! Totally saved my bacon.

    HTH and good luck with the new toy! thumb.gif

    WOW! Awesome, impressive and inspiring. Kind of like an animated slideshow. Very interesting technique. It's as if a still image is spliced right before the video clip of the same so it makes the image come alive.

    By the way, where did the music come from and do you know of any good sources for free royalty free music.?

    7D on Christmas Morning
    I love the 7D! It has opened up a whole new world of fun, creativity, and the ability to easily capture memories at a level I never imagined would be possible.

    This was my one-year-old daughter's first Christmas morning opening presents.




    Shot completely on a 7D at 720P 60fps. Used the 24-105 f/4L for everything but a couple of early shots, which used the 85 f/1.8. Edited in Sony Vegas Platinum 9.0 using the Cineform intermediate codec. To save time (I edited the whole thing in a couple of hours the day after Christmas), there's no color grading here. This is all shot in the Standard picture mode.

    this isn't my video, but its very interesting and was done with a 5DMKII. You can read the story behind the video here: http://philipbloom.co.uk/2009/12/12/the-tale-of-lucasfilm-skywalker-ranch-red-tails-star-wars-and-canon-dslrs/ - almost makes me want to switch back to Canon and get a 5DMKII!

    Thanks schmoo! I'm out of the running in the competition, but it doesn't matter because I sure had a lot of fun making this. Most of this was done with my helmet cam I got last year. As for the snake, that was from a behind the scenes tour of Seattle's Woodland Park Zoo reptile exhibit.

    Hi Roger,
    congratulations for your site design and your work in general !
    Regarding your slideshows, I see that you use Proshow and Proshow Styles intensively.
    On your smugmug site, your shows have the same problems as mine, ie "jerky" images, while your originals on your PC are smooth, aren't they ?
    Do you know/understand why please ?
    BTW, what output format and settings do you use in Proshow to create the videos that you upload to smugmug please ? (in order to match the smugmug limitations and to get the best quality on your site)
    From my side, I've tried decades of Proshow outputs & settings, all my original shows are smooth, but "jerky" on my site headscratch.gif
    You can see my last example here : http://kbhfprod.smugmug.com/You-Rock-My-Life/2010-HD-Show/11138347_qTSuf
    Many thanks in advance if you have few minutes to share your Proshow/Smugmug experience.

    Great work love the photodex company. I turn my slide to a 1080p in photodex witch puts it way over the size limit. I use streamclip to compress to mpeg-4. I watched your slide show it do not skip at all for me. What kind of pc do you have? You need good memory and a good video card. I think it might the internet what kind of speed do you have? Watch your green line on the bottom of the slide show to see how far it is from the video its self. If it very close to the playing part of the video it will skip real bad. I dont know if i helped at. I have very fast internet and i very good luck at watching my slide shows. Photodex requires a lot of so called power to run smooth. Any way let me know if this helped.

    Another Dune Riding Vid
    After seeing some of the great videos in here, I hesitate to post my junk! Everyone's vids are giving me ideas for future vids. Thanks.

    A bunch of us went to the Oregon Dunes over spring break. I used my 7D for the pics and just my Sony camcorder for the vids.

    Song is 'R' rated. Sorry.

    Still waiting on smug to get the network issues worked out so I can store here, but in the meantime here it is on YouTube. My first weekend with the 5D2 (back in Feb., was waiting on an audio track forEVER).

    I had the 50mm wide open, so the focus is thin - and I know the color and WB are off, but this was right out of the box just to play around the first day. I think it still tells a cute story of breakfast at the grandparents though :)
