First Ever Video: Moreno Glacier

Moreno Glacier

I’ve always wanted to start putting together some videos on my site, but have been pretty lazy about it.  Actually, when I chose my DSLR camera I specifically bought the camera with the higher quality video.  This is my first ever video, and since I’m not a pro, there are some pretty awkward transitions, but I know better for next time.  Also, the audio is pretty bad because it was extremely windy at Moreno Glacier.  I’m going to try to make these videos a once every 2 weeks or so addition to the site.  I hope you like them.  Just for the record, there will be a big announcement tomorrow on where I’m heading.  Also, there will be a written post and a photoblog on Moreno glacier posted within the next couple weeks.  Enjoy the video!

    • I think that the photos are even better than the video… I think I’ll post a photo essay on Friday

  3. Wow, beautiful! And for being the first video ever, it’s sooo good!
    I’ll start making videos soon too… actually I have some already but the guy who has the memory card is in Sudan at the moment, ooops:p
    That place is amazing and the sound of the avalanches is incredible!
    Waiting for the photo essay. Great job.

  4. Nice quality. What exactly are you using? Audio is usually the issue for even high end camcorders unless an external mic is used. Keep making those videos man. Looking forward to watching some more.

    • Ya it’s my Canon T1i, and I had a big issue buying it because it didn’t have external mic jack. In hindsight, I should have just bought the T2i that has one, but the extra 300bucks deterred me. Hopefully the places I go in the future aren’t so loud, because the camera shoots fairly high quality

    • The crash in that video was pretty quite. Whenever the camera wasn’t rolling there was MASSIVE ones, pretty incredible.

  6. I like the video a lot. It is very good. I love that you admit you hadn’t done one because of being lazy. That is something I would say and that would be a reason for me not doing something. Anyway i loved the video it looks amazing down there.

    Oh & I love your accent.

  9. Great video! I personally dont mind the wind noise, one thing that you may want to do is put some background music to cancel that out. You can also cut out the sound on those sections and just subsitute for the background music. Look forward to seeing the new ones… cheers
