wow the last one was amazing , your brave i would never take my camera anywhere near snow like that, i barely let other people hold it! lol

but hey i love the slow motion, what did you use to edit, i just shot my first video, and now here comes the hard part, editing, i have no clue what im doing but i know i have premier and after effects, i about to check out alot of youtube tutorials, i did a lot of 60 frames because its a rap video and i wanted to get the slow motion effect,
i heard u can render 60 frames back to 24 frames,  so the slow motion is achieved, but any tips or pointers

Make sure that the project you open is 24fps.

60fps -> 24fps = Right click on the clip in premiere, click Speed/Duration, then adjust Speed to 40%.

That's it!

Good luck with learning Premiere, I also learned by Googling and watching video tutorials.

P.S.  I still have no idea how to use After Effects.

wow! I am amazed at the snowboarding video. I know you are using a steady cam but to keep your subject in frame and board down the hill, well, you must be a Canadian for real. That is very impressive to me.
I'm an old film guy just playing catchup in this digital world. Help me out.

Hahaha, thanks.  I couldn't see through the viewfinder so I just aimed and hoped for the best.  Seems to have worked out okay.

2 quick questions.

1. Where can I download the Magic Lantern firmware?

2. I will be the first to admit that Magic Lantern gives the internal mic of the T2i such a huge improvement. I noticed that with the other two microphones (when using my ear buds) that there was still some white noise/ hissing in the background. Yes, Magic Lantern made the lavalier and the shotgun mic just absolutely jump in quality, but I am concerned that white noise will be the undoing of my video projects.

The first thing that came to my mind was what if my ear buds are broken or have some faulty wiring. Problem is, if they are plugged into my computer when the video was not playing, there was no white noise. As soon as I continued to play the video I heard it again. I am on the fence of whether or not I want to keep my T2i or try to upgrade to something else, but the information I have fallen upon over the last hour (after hours of previous investigation and research) has me definitely thinking about keeping this new camera of mine. If I can get ahold of the Magic Lantern firmware and a 50mm lens I will be much happier :)

I am confused and dismayed by the first video.
What is this odd sport with ice skates and sticks...??

It looks nothing like this......
