here! Questions about video production:
Note:We made an entire video about our gear (that is now outdated a but, haha) right here! What is the song at the beginning of all your videos?
http://youtu.be/M-7KEWXz__E What software do you use for editing videos?
We use Sony Vegas for editing. As of April 2015 we use Vegas Pro 13.0. If you'd like to see our render settings they are here. What kind of cameras do you use?
We have used a few different cameras over the years, but we currently primarily shoot with a Sony DSC-HX90V but in the past we have used a Sony DSC-HX50V and a Panasonic DMC-TS5 that were all graciously donated by viewers! Recently (2016 onward) our waterproof camera has been a Nikon Coolpix AW130.
