Now "New and Improved!" I took a number of shots and built a little iMovieHD of the baitball, added royalty free music. iMovieHD is really easy.
I am going to try some of your suggestions next dive, see what is adjustable on the D90. Thanks.
HD Video of Scads of Scads
Wow, very impressive and what a dive (I will probably not see any fish on my dive next week)!!!
You did a great job behind the camera as well as behind the computer (very nice edited and nice music).
Now, suggestions for fututre improvements:
My guess is that you did not lock exposure. It feels as it's altered during the scene and it's a little annoying.
I also find most of it slightly over exposured. Not that it's burned out, but it would look nicer (and does in a few scenes) if the image was darker. I guess it's the extremely bright sand that makes it extra hard on the camera.
Finally, it's rather "jumpy"... hmm not sure I use the correct word here... anyone?? It's not shaky, you are very steady (well done!). I think it's either because it's a very complex scene (tons of things moving) or it's the conversion to Vimeo that caused it (happens way too often). Is it as jumpy before uploading to Vimeo? If so, perhaps you could experiment with different export settings?
BTW, for anyone watching the vimeo clip, make sure you have set HD ON and Scale OFF.
