>Thanks for starting this as we all move in un charter waters >as most of us started in film (stils) Well looking forward to >this and Ithink I will start off with some questions for every >one. Let me continue as I hit the enter key 1 are you using auto focus or manual focusing? I am still going back and fourth I have trided both and so far am finding manual is working best, however I think I will be needing a "Hoodman" as I find it diffulcalt to focus on the rear glass. 2 what is any body doing about auido as the camera mic is not that good.
Please keep up up tp date on audio from your new mic as I have also looked at the Nikon Mc-1 also. I currently have an old Sony but it picks up on ALL camera sounds including AF motor sounds Thanks and enjou your Rode mic.

I will be using the video feature of my D90, with a Aquatica uw housing for uw videos, together with uw photography and will contribute some of my experiences in the future. It should be noted that although the HD video functionality is not upto an expensive dedicated HD video camera, with some improvisation and expereience one can make presentable videos. It would be nice to share some of these with others. Neil
Great that there is a DSLR video forum and I suspect it will grow and be well used. BUT - I think it's not ideally placed in the forums. Could I suggest it has its own category? DSLR Video is more than a single discussion area, it's a whole category like Lenses. There's Hardware, Shooting techniques, Post-Processing, Audio etc.. all potential topic areas.
Could be a case of 'build it and they will come'...
This is the most difficult forum I have ever tried to use. I am so lost on what to do. I considered joining but nothing makes any sense here. In addition, many of the pages default to a black background with white text that is almost impossible to read for aging eyes.
I do not see any step 1, step 2, step 3 options for newbies.
