    Default Ground Level RC Car Drifting

    Hey Guys, New to the Forum and Newb to Video Editing as well but definitely loving it. Would love to hear what you guys think of this Video I Filmed and Edited of this Traxxas 4-TEC 3.3 Nitro RC Car Drifting at ground level view.



    While i'm posting this I thought I might ask for some starting pointers on how to do better slow motion stuff with this...

    Thanks & Enjoy!

    The depth of field was to narrow for this type of film. You can see the short focal length on the tarmac. To get better slow mo don't have the car so close to the camera use the zoom to get closer.

    Thanks for your pointers! Raising the camera off the ground a bit might help fix the narrow depth of field eh? I'm getting those guys in the vid to make me something to pivot the camera easily while still being close to the ground - excited to see how that will turn out and for the slow motion i'm gonna try to get better shows by zooming in. Thanks!

    No raising the camera will not do it. Opening up the iris will do it.
