I'm just noticing Vimeo's compression bits.  Feel free to download and see the real files.  It's such a crazy night and day difference.  Thank you Magic Lantern.  It's one thing to see others videos but when it's of your own hand it hits home.
Thanks for the kind words.  They're not from OFS South Africa.  What's that?  These were part of an advertising campaign for Sandymount Park, Private Game Reserve, within the Free State.

Been using ML for ~2 years now.  Just recently signed up on the forum.  I run a t2i with what I believe in much success.  I'm a firm believer in exploiting every nook and cranny of my gear.  ML has allowed me to do this. 

Thanks to the programmers for all they do.
So here's a video I made on my well used and trusty t2i.  It took me 3 weeks, 10,000 stills, and 2 terabytes of video.  My first foray into production was film scoring, I wrote jingles for commercials.  Seeing the similarity of video editors vs music editors I bought a camera (t2i) and started playing with it.  And now I sorta do it all, from conception to distribution.  I've been a lurker within these ML forums for the last 2 years. 

It's not overly fancy with crazy effects.  Just a solid message and presentation.  Clients were happy.  And ML made the whole acquisition process much more trustworthy.  It's strange that I don't find more people in the wild with ML.  I see dudes at fashion shows with way fancier cameras than me and I'm always surprised they don't exploit every nook and cranny of their gear.  And frankly I don't think their shots are really as great as they ought to be. 

It's obvious to my eyes which camera was used where.  I'm sure y'all will see the same.  But the Vixia is just really useful for those quick acquisitions, "There's the animal!! It's running away!!" ;)  I cleaned out about a 1/16th cup of sand between my computer and cameras when I returned home. 

Anyway, thanks for watching and enjoy
