Re: Cannon GL2 longrange video question

The reason your camera won't focus when zoomed all the way out is that you are then using the Digital Zoom not just the Optical Zoom. There is a little zoom indicator light bar you can watch as you zoom out in your view finder. I can't remember what colors it shows but I think its green on optical zoom and changes to red when you pass that and get into digital zoom. None of the cheap cameras are going to take as good of video as your GL2. Cheap never is the answer to a good camera just like in rifle scopes. Dave Garrett

    Now the GL2 isn't a bad camera, it use to be the work horse of the industry. And garrets is kind of right about the cheap camera not being as good at GL2. I guess it depends on what you consider cheap. Me thats a $1000.00 cam.

    I would buy the best doubler you can afford and only use your optical zoom. Raynox makes a good one for under $300. You can see some video I shot with it just search here or youtube for 2012 338 edge long range hunting video.

    I got a question or two for you please. First that is an outstanding video!!!!

    What did you use to edit it, and put it all together?

    Have you had professional classes for this?

    I assume you did it all on your lap top then transferred it to youtube? Does it take a super computer?

    Do you have to change format to get it to youtube?

    Guess that was more than a few Q's...

    Thanks
    Jeff

    I use Adobe After Effects for intro edit with Adobe premiere pro.
    No training unless you count hours and hours watching Youtube tutorials
    Used desktop computer could use laptop if not to old you need least 2 gigs of Ram more is better.
    In premiere you can burn Bluray or DvD or export to about any format
    Hope that helps
