Video Update: Canon 7D, AE Tips & Leeches

Video Update number two is online and we have several fun things to discuss in this slightly longer edition. We’ll check out the sneak peak of this weeks video tutorial, plus my take on the new Canon 7D, digital SLR. There has been a lot of interest in Video SLR’s and I wanted to look into it first hand. This discussion is a little more free but the Video blog world is starting to evolve … I’ll be trying some new things and hopefully we’ll find a format that works!

Otherwise we’ll have to start over and go back to formula. BACK TO FORUMLA!!

NOTE: The Submerged tutorial will be online this week. Stay Tuned.
