Camera work is a bit shaky, but not too bad for an amateur. Camera is the Canon HV20, with Rode shotgun mic & UV filter. Color is washed out just a bit, but couldn’t wait for cloudy or overcast day.
I use Sony Vegas Platinum for editing and rendering the high definition video to .wmv or .mp4 format. Pretty easy software to learn – version 9 now exports to mp4, which is preferred by online community. Vimeo is an excellent service…for $60/yr you can upload up to 5 GB per week! – with 1 GB file limit. A previous upload (ForestExpo) was originally over the 1 GB, so I rendered again at lower bitrate to decrease file size.
Video is fun!
