The first Canon EOS model with this feature is the advanced EOS 5D Mark II model, which introduced Full 1920x1080p HD movie recording capability to the SLR world.
The most recent is the EOS Rebel T1i, with 1080p Full HD capability, and HD capability at 30 fps at 1280x720 — ideal for many of today’s HDTVs.
As this is a totally new era in SLR shooting, the options for easy, simple editing of video files for the SLR shooter are limited.
Professional video editing software programs are designed for precise and creative video editing. However, they’re far from simple to learn, and can cost hundreds or even thousands of dollars — hardly the right answer for the digital SLR user who wants to learn the basics of the video editing.
Canon has taken a big step for the casual and first-time video shooter, with the new MovieEdit Task software that’s a part of Canon’s ImageBrowser v.3.6 (for Macintosh) and ZoomBrowser EX v.3.6 (for Windows) software.
And best of all, it’s included absolutely free with the EOS Rebel T1i and can also be used for EOS 5D Mark II video files, as well as PowerShot Movies.*
- upgrade for ImageBrowser & ZoomBrowser to version 3.6 anticipated in Spring 2009
