I came across DVinfo now that I am researching new cameras for a switch to tapeless and HD.
I have been making videos since highschool where I filmed on Video-8 and used my Amiga 2000 for titles and VHS to VHS over composite to make skateboarding videos! I got pretty good with the pause button.
I did a promotional video for a music festival and got my first experience of a proper editing system with a Panasonic S-VHS editor. It was amazing being able to "transcode" my Hi-8 to S-VHS without the loss in quality I had been used to. Hehehe... those were the days
I have always been interested in Motorsport and combined that interest with video after a long break from any video editing.
About 7 years ago my mother died so I lost interest in work, got fired, sold my car, bought a Sony DSR-PD170P, a Canon MVX25i, a suction mount with a Manfrotto 3D mount, a Miller tripod and a plane ticket to Japan with the intention of dazzling the world with amazing videos...
I sold some footage to production companies, but I naively expected them to pay me!
I also discovered the joy of seeing my wonderful footage turned into garbage...
I got discouraged by this and had some very expensive trouble with my errr "local authorities" who were also doing some filming in the same location.
Oh and the company I was working for went bankrupt!
So the footage I had sat around while I dealt with the realities of life I eventually co-produced and financed a DVD, it was not quite as good as I had hoped, but it was released and that is what counts.
YouTube - Phat Sliggity :: Zipties ?????
I hope to purchase a new camera, computer and NLE program and came here to find out what to get.
...if anyone films motorsport with a CMOS camcorder I would be very interested to hear what you have to say about Rolling Shutter!
