I has a shaky cam

Olympic Torch Relay comes to Bradford, Ontario from Sarah Mulholland on Vimeo.

This is really the first time I’ve operated the new camera to take video. Because Chris has been working on a series of video modules for a client, he’s become an over-night expert in Final Cut Pro, so he’s now my official video editor. Apparently this was so “shaky cam” he had to run correction filters that took hours and hours. Let me just say in my own defense that the 7D, with the 18-200 mm zoom lens on it, weighs A  LOT, nearly 4lbs actually. I’m pretty good at keeping still taking still shots with a slow shutter speed, but apparently not so great holding still for video.
