    Hi as i said before we are a bunch of 12 years old students and we are really interested in movie making and also we wanted to join the contest but most of the contest are for only people at the age of 13 and US residents we are now studying in Vietnam so we cant really join any contests Please reply Thx

    HDD space is dirt cheap. Compared to what you’d spend on a camera of that calibre. For example, forthe price of that 1D-C you can, quite literally, buy over 300TB of HDD space. If you do buy a 4K video camera, the added cost of HDD space is practically negligible.

    It’s sad how this channel has died down so much since the end of BFX even though good content is still posted from time to time

  19. asimo90

    Well I only do videos o my iPod touch 4G so I really don’t have any special effects and I’ve never won a video contest because of that but I can’t afford another camera. Can you help me?

    hey Indymugul, please, could you do a tutorial of how Iso and shutter can change the video quality ..

  21. indymogul

    Definitely. Contests come in all shapes and sizes, and some are specifically targeted towards amateurs or even non-filmmakers. I’ve entered simple contests where all they want is your face on camera offering an opinion. Read through lots of contests, and find the one that suits your equipment and talents best.

    Many contests are only open to certain countries, and Online Video Contests lets you filter out the contests you’re not eligible for.

  23. TelepathicFilms

    I Live in the uk, Will i still be eligible for these contest? Please reply!

  24. TheResearchPage

    Great vid! Do you think in the future you could do a hands on instructional on how you pull/measure your focus? This has been my biggest challenge having come from prosumer cameras

  25. SabastianRed
