    You need to label your videos things besides "Montage". Note that the videos labeled with locations and people seem to be doing better. Fill in the keywords!

    Keep in mind, these just add film grain to your video... It is by no means a complete "film look". This is just the grain.

    What are you editing with?

    Have a crazy long shoot in a remote location, and don't want to lug along a laptop to transfer your cards? Tapes are great for that.

    I have one and think its all sorts of fun. Not a great primary camera, but still a very fun and useful one. I typically use it for shooting time lapses, not skating though.

    Shoot with a prime lens, something simple without optical stabilization. It reduces the "rolling shutter" effect. If it has a manual iris, even better. It will give you more control.

    I'm to recommend against getting a Nikon d3100 or d5000. They love to make moving things look like jello, even if you know how to shoot. For stills, they are great!

    You might want to convert the Quicktime h264 files that your camera makes to something else before editing them. I'm not sure what Vegas likes to use. (I use Final Cut, so its Prores 422.)

    DVDs haven't been killed off yet. I'll still occasionally get clients asking for one. It's close, but not yet. So, I'm not going to call it "dead". I still have clients asking for BetaCamSP...

    I disagree with needing to be HD. If you are going to YouTube, SD is fine. Low end HD sucks. Pick what works for your project.

    So long as we are dreaming about great cameras..
    I like the Panasonic VariCam models. The video has a wonderful look to it, much better than the Sony F500 (imho).
    Plus you can shoot at 60fps. I...

    The color correction looks a bit underexposed on the outdoor shots. Bring up the mids a bit. I see what you are doing with the muted colors, as it matches the music. But, it also looks really...

    Just an idea - "Foot Braille"

    Ok, I'm just getting started. When I get on the board quickly, sometimes my foot placement is off. I usually know it is, but have to make a quick glance to know where to move.

    What if there was...

    Vegas has treated me really, really well. I need to visit Australia sometime. I keep running into people from over there, it sounds like a fun place!

    Hey Muttboy!
    I'm 32 and learning it all again myself.

    Skating is as healthy as doing squats on a balance board and quite a bit more fun.
    Hit the parks while everyone else in school!

    Ah, you are shooting 720 60fps. Doing some reading, it looks like that camera does downsampling in the camera, which might be reducing quality. The samples online aren't looking that bad though. ...

    It's ugly? What are you shooting with? There shouldn't be a loss of quality at all.
