This is a whole new skill set. Yes, I tried to shoot some video. Pathetic.

Several observations ...

You need something to steady the rig. Hand holding video is like hand holding stills on roller skates. Live view freaking rocks! I don't know how to focus in video mode. Tomorrow I'm getting out my AIS one touch zooms.

Note: I shot some street video using the 80-400 (of course at 400). It sucked, but when I showed my son (film maker, 7D user)--his jaw dropped. From across the street and up a floor, it was unbelievable. Boring footage of course, but excellent quality boring footage.
