LivinOnLaughter says:

What is the name for that toy figure used?

Ashkan Ahmadi says:

10:23 you said cameras shoot 4×3. i believe all DSLR cameras shoot 3×2, not 4×3!

hykugan says:

“…video is gonna be 24fps, that means i have 4 frames per second ’cause i’m bringing these in at 6 frames each”. Mark, could you please elaborate above sentence because from what I see is the video plays 4 PICTURES per second? I’m so confused between using the term ‘frame’ and ‘picture’. Thanks

Kalle Björklund says:

NickAndThisIsGood says:

Hello Mark would you use photoshop for editing video?

Henry Orth says:

Mark if I was you i would use both Canon and Nikon two great companies even though I own all Canon. Great Job by the way on all you videos - as a professional I love watching you to steal anything I may have overlooked!!! Cudos to you!!! Happy New Year!

This was a fantastic episode. I’d thought about trying some time lapse stuff ever since i discovered the EOS software makes it pretty easy, and now I feel ready to dive in!
