I have never been a big fan of digital camera movie modes because, till HD, the resolution supplied was generally rubbish, plus you had to deal with the resulting video files which seemed like a mammoth task that probably was not worth the effort. In many ways I still need to be convinced, but these movie clips, all 45 of them, were automatically analysed, assembled and edited using Premiere Element's instantmovie function - you have no say about the clip order (unless it's set by date or previously-made Tags), or the sound track or the type of editing, but the results are great fun and I think, very effective. Here I used the cartoon format.
All clips were shot with a Canon EOS 5D MkII and a Canon Powershot SX30IS and edited using Adobe Premiere Elements...
This is a collection of clips shot on our CCE photo trip to Japan, 2010. Cameras used: Canon EOS 5D MkII and Powershot SX30IS
TIPS for shooting movies with a DSLR:
1. Avoid moving the camera while shooting
2. Always use the best quality HD setting (resolution)
3. Use a tripod whenever you can
4. Play with different focus settings
5. Experiment with different apertures and ISO settings to get a variety of different visual effects for each subject
6. If a tripod is no good, use a monopod to add stability to the shooting process.
7. Use a bunch of shorter clips rather than one long clip...
