The last of my HD videos from my recent trip down the Great Ocean Road in Victoria, Australia. This is of the 12 Apostles, easily the most popular of the many scenic spots there. As with the others, this was shot with a Canon EOS 7D so be sure to watch it in HD mode.
When I was in Egypt last year I thought it was pretty funny that I saw this Jawa motorcycle since (for those who aren't familiar) Jawa was the name of the small, cloaked creatures living in the desert in Star Wars. Seeing this on the outskirts of Cairo made me wonder if there could be any link in the names. Hmmmm?
This was actually my first real attempt at shooting some scenic video. The challenge with this one (other that still learning the basics of shooting and editing video) is that you were restricted to boardwalks around the area. No matter how sturdy your tripod is, when tourists go stomping behind you, you're going to get some shaky shots. Thankfully it wasn't a very crowded day. As with the others, this was shot with the Canon EOS 7D.
So I recently had the chance to take the new EOS 7D's HD video feature for a spin along one of the most scenic drives in the world...The Great Ocean Road in Victoria, Australia. Here is the first of a few short movies I put together. As I have zero video background it's going to take some getting used to shooting and editing it. Enjoy!
