    not sure if this is in the right section....here's hoping.

    the flickering is from the ripple from the water.



    still in learning mode, before i try and make things a little more complex.

    great video mark. I finally got my hands on a 5d at xmas and have been reading up on the video side of things. Have you signed up for a pro account on vimeo and how are you finding the editors, ie the sony vegas or edios?

    ugh this one rocks. :wideyed: the only thing what is missing really is a bit of a music which fits with the scene.
    otherwise i can not find the words how detailed and sharp is the capture. beautiful. :D

    cheers flygja, definitely a side of the camera I didn't think I'd explore, but glad I have :thumbup:

    true viktor, but i want to learn the basics first. then I'll expand with music etc. :D


    me too matey. look out for plenty more vids in the future sam. :D

    yes mate. about $60 what ever that is in English.

    i've used both on trial version, and I love edius5. I'm getting it shortly. I've also ordered the zacuto zfinder V2.

    the real time preview is great. it utilises the graphics card unlike others. i've got an Nvidia gts8800 which speeds things up a bit. also have quad core is helping me I think....over clocked too.

    edius isn't full of fancy effects, it's not know for it but, but in terms of professional vids it's great. many pros are using it and for what I need, it's perfect.

    I seriously cannot get my head around how good those vids look Mark! Amazing detail, it's frightening really :lol:

    Andy, yours looks awesome too, it's great to see how the tank 'runs'. I can see this way of presenting and displaying ones tank becoming VERY popular :clap:

    cheers mate, the quality still blows me away too. i've certainly got the video bug.

    it's quite easy after a day or 2. look forward to what you produce.

    i did hesitate a little, but on reading and watching reviews, I thought it's a must for DSLR videos. apparently it's good for getting pin sharp photos too as it's like looking at a cinema screen :wideyed:

    check out phillip bloom ;) the man's amazing. shoots plenty on the 5d MK2

    I'm also looking at some kessler gear.

    top banana Andy :thumbup: a stunner mate!

    Very impressive, Mark and Andy!

    I think this may be a glimpse into future about sharing the hobby through the Internet.

    As technology becomes more affordable, accessible and user-friendly, I reckon we'll see more and more HD videos online.

    It's great to see some UKAPS members treading new ground this way!

    Keep up the great work fellas! :D

    PS I have to admit poo-pooing the video function on DSLRs but I've changed my mind now...

    George,

    Its defo affordable, my camera is not quite as expensive o_O as Marks and you can see the difference, but my Camera can now be bought for approx £350.

    Things like vimeo.com help as you can share these huge files in the full glory. On mine 44mins of video = 16gb or 20seconds is a 116mb, glad my Imac is spec'd up!

    They look very cool on a big LCD tv as well. Might not need that new Aquascape in the lounge just watch it on the tv! Less maintenance! :thumbup: :rolleyes:

    Mark - the one thing with yours that still blows me away and makes it stand apart, is your macro lens, the detail is simply stunning, you must be well pleased, Oh and and i hear it takes photos too! ;)

    i think the quality is stunning mate. TBH, not much difference at all in terms of resolution from what i can see. The 5dmk2 will however have more creative control.

    quality glass mate, we all know what that can do for an image. i now need to rob a bank and buy some L series glass. :shifty:

    check this out stu...all done on the 5d MK2 and kessler gliders. stunning



    thanks mate.

    another from the nano tank. it's a bit random and contains some still like plants clips.



    This is non co2 or ferts tank so pearling really is at a minimum. in the future I want to get some really artistic style shots in my high tech tanks. :D

    That's why I hardly go to the cinema nowadays, with Bluray and HD Movies of the web the quality is just stunning.

    too true paulo.



    just for you sam :hilarious:

    trying out backgrounds...well one at least. The tank is only 2 weeks old, so ignore the lack of growth 8)

    and can you spot the mystery plant?.....
