I've gotten into video as a hobby, nothing too professional but I'm learning. Once I get more fancy gear like dolly's and such I should be better but given that this is my first effort I'm more than pleased :)

I decided to make a little video of my day at the track. Comments and critique are welcome :)

Video was taken with a canon 60D. Feel free to watch in HD :D

Nice video, pretty good for the first time out. I don't think I ever saw but how did you car do before the header install? Did you ever get a before/after dyno?

Pretty cool. what programs did you use to put that together? Looking at the other posts you have, i wish I could take pictures like you. I am an amateure photagrapher and jelleous of your photos. I am still trying to figure out my Nikkon 2dxs and photoshop. do you have any recommendations. I just do it as a hobby.

I never had dynos pre mods so I don't know what the gains were. Last time I ran pre headers I ran a 12.8 so this time I ran .2 faster

I used pinnacle studio 14 to put it together, I had adobe premiere but it was giving me trouble. Pinnacle studio isn't as advanced but for my purposes it worked ok. I actually havent used photoshop for a long time now I mostly just use adoble lightroom to edit my photos. I just do color retouching I don't really do any advanced editing using layers or anything I try to set everything up before I take the shot. I just do it as a hobby too, I've never taken any classes or anything. Everything I know I've learned from forums lol

Thanks, that's the big advantage DSLR's have is that they can do video even a lot of high end cameras can't because DSLR's have much larger sensors. The season finale of house last season was actually filmed entirely with a DSLR. The lenses give you great flexibility too. The only downside is they can be tricky to hold still, and focusing/zooming has to be done manually.

Very nice vid! Car sounds great with your setup.
Thanks!

Fantastic job. Love the video. You have a great looking F as well. I'd love to see more video's from you!!!
I want to make more in the future, I just have more equipment I want to buy first. I want to make something epic top gear style :D

Nice video! I like. Did you brake launch the car it looks as though you did? If so don't do that next time just bring the rpms just barely above idol and stab it in sport mode you should be able to get low 12's. When you brake launch it it hesitates a bit out the hole. I did the same thing last year when I first dragged it.
