Welcome to my first video offering, Dogs in the Snow. Here, you’ll get a simple glimpse of my Golden Retriever and Siberian Husky playing in the snow. Not much going on here – just a few tiny edits.
I shot this on my new Canon VIXIA HF M300. It’s incredible how tiny this camera is and the results speak for themselves. It has pretty much everything I could want in a camcorder – it’s light weight, mic input, video light, camera flash, headphone jack – it’s pretty sweet. This was a generous gift from my sister and brother in law. I edited this with the software it came with (if you can call that editing), and it’s clear that the PIXELA Image Mixer software is just not up to the challenge – if you’re used to Final Cut or Adobe Premier, the primitive controls and pathetic playback abilities will make you nuts in moments. I don’t know what I expected for free software that came with the camera, but it sucks.
This is also my first upload to YouTube – it was pretty easy. However, if you can edit the description after you post the video, I haven’t figured out how. Anyway, there’s more to videos to come!
