A few weeks ago I heard about the new Canon 550D camera which was going to hit the market. This photocamera allows you to record movies in full HD resolution using your normal photography lenses. After seeing some recordings with this camera I was completely astonished by the filming quality. It looks so professional. I immediately ordered the camera and within a few days I received it. Unfortunately I don’t have that much time yet to experiment with it, but I managed to record from behind glass (at home) some hares in the pasture. But it is at 500 mm without a tripod, so it proves that it can record, but the quality is not representative.
Another issue is that my computer cannot manage to play the HD files, so I also need to buy a faster computer. Which probably will be required if I want to really start editing movies, my laptop is not fast enough.
