Hi there! I want to know if there is a correct way of white balancing video on dslrs. I have a Canon t2i and I really want to stay away from auto white balance as much as possible. I normally use presets like daylight (on a sunny day where the light is harsh) but what do you use when your indoors and there are a lot of different lights that can mess up your white balance?
Any tips/comments/suggestions are welcome!
Thanks!<span style="white-space: pre;"> </span>

Working away on a few video projects. This one is an SNL parody, has a lot of energy and fun cast. Hope you enjoy. Music video done for a Bat Mitzvah event.
Once again, I would like to thank Videomaker for enhancing and developing some of my skills. Don't know where I would be without you.

Have you seen this new lens yet?
I've always been looking for something like this. I hope they come out with the version for Nikon soon! Looks like just for Canon DSLR right now.
Here's some test footage I found on someone else's channel:
I know this sounds stupid. What would be the main difference between 24fps & 30fps? I know filmmakers use 24fps to have that "film" look but why do some people use 30fps? What if you were to do a product commercial or an event video such as wedding or concert, what frame rate would you use and why? Is it just for the aesthetic look of video to do 24fps? I am a little bit confused by this.
Any ideas/comments are greatly appreciated!
Hi, I'm looking to upgrade my equipment to HD video and I'm not sure what might work best for me. I have been shooting iceskating programs for the past 4yrs with my 2 sony vx 2100's. I have been looking atgetting 2sony HDR-AX2000 or just one and a sony HXR-NX5U.
But then would a DSLR work well for fast moving subjects or would it be to hard to keep in focus? I'm not familiar with how the manual focus would work for me.
Any thoughts on this?
I hope you don't mind if i pick your brains. Apologies for it being long. The bold text highlights the questions that i'm currently struggling to answer.
Hi, everyone, Jennifer O'Rourke with Videomaker
here. I have a reader that asks an interesting question and I thought
I'd throw it out to the forums.
I have a reader that
asks: "Does the magazine have an article on how to walk using a
stabilizer. I really suck at this!"
I did some research and can't see if we've ever done a story on the proper way to use a tripod or stabilizer. Looks like a story is in the plan, huh? Any ideas?
