I recently bought a Canon 7d. Before that I was using the Canon XL1.
Quite a departure to go from a standard bulky video camera to an SLR but I couldn't help but love the footage I had seen from vimeo and youtube.
I'm using imovie 06 which may be my problem but my footage looks awful!
It seems to be in focus when i'm filming but when I import it it has a soft focus to it.
I'm using a Nikon 50mm wide angle zoom lens that cost $130.
What's my problem?
When I plug my card reader into my mac it automatically reads it as a quicktime file which I import into imovie. The quicktime files look like ****, too. Is it my lens? Imovie?
