I was lucky enough to get my hands on a Canon 600D. a Canon 50mm and a Canon 18-135mm lens. having not used a DSLR for shooting video before I was quite excited to get out and fiddle. This video is the result. It is very experimental. I did a lot of mucking about with iso and f stop settings.

All the video was shot at 720 50 fps. I intended to interpret the footage to 25fps fps for the slow-mo effect which worked quite well.

I spent a few hours late Sunday afternoon taking shots. In a few hours I took 150 shots, mostly short takes lasting around 30sec -1min. some was unusable but the were some nice shots as well. It was all shot hand held without any tripod (I don't own one at the moment).

What I learnt so far.1. GET A TRIPOD. 2. 2 gigabytes of RAM is not enough lol.

I edited this video on a 7-8 year old PC. It was incredibly tedious to edit. The computer is so old that it just couldn't deal with the footage. So the result is not as polished as I would like. If I had a better PC I would have stabilised some of the shots. But just out putting the footage from the editor took the best part of 5 hours. for a 6 min piece. I hate to think how long it would of taken if I had used image stabilisation as well.

Time for a serious upgrade to my computer I think. :-)
