I recently purchased a canon 550d mainly for the movie shooting capabilies rather than the photography side of it. I havent had the chance to test it out much apart from messing about in the house and garden. Today we went up to Northumberland and I shot a bit of footage purely to try it out. Had an hour in Windows Movie maker to edit it and hey presto .Altho I had the tripod with me I didnt bother using it as a wanted that handheld look to it. I know its not great but see what you think chaps.
