I have been learning to use the video of my Canon 60D for a while now.
I have experimented a lot with the settings looking for the razor sharp crispness I get from it's still shots and many of the videos I see online shot with DSLRs.
I am currently less than happy with any of my results and hope someone with more knowledge than I can tell me:
a) if I am asking took much of a crop sensor DSLR?
b) some solutions I might try
c) whether I need to move to a full frame DSLR in order to get the sharpness and clarity I want?
I have posted a short movie for anyone to view. I spend a lot of time filming friends climbing in the bush.
You'll need to right click>download file to view on your desktop, it's too big for streaming (appologies if that is obvious).
Although it has been imported then exported from Final Cut Pro I have simply cropped it. The file size has not dropped significantly and from viewing the original and this one side by side there is very little difference in quality.
My big problems with what I'm seeing in all my videos are:
• lots of 'noise' in the rock. The crystals appear to shimmer in a horrible way. I suspected the artefact must be due to overexposing so have been careful to check my histograms of late.
• nothing in the image is pin sharp. I am always careful to use the zoom in Liveview mode before shooting in order to get perfect image sharpness.
The aperture was mid range too so lens issues should not be a problem.
Would really appreciate some feedback on this as I'm out of my depth and googling has turned up little of help so far.
Cheers in advance.
