1 Stock Footage Clip is Uplifting

Something I've enjoyed doing with the FS700 is capturing clouds by shooting at 1-2 fps using the camera's adjustable frame rate feature.  Doing something like that in the DSLR is tricky because it takes some time to write the information onto the card from the buffer and usually you can't get a reliably smooth time lapse.  The video is also compiled in-camera, meaning instant playback.  With my T2i, I need to load it into the computer, compile it, and render it in order to see what I got. Obviously the benefit to DSLR time lapses is the ability to record higher than HD in the RAW format.

I was able to catch this great cloud swell the other day and wanted to share it with you.  Those of you who have been following the blog might know that I am a big fan of negative space in my shots (even though I try to properly frame everything to keep it as "stock" as possible).  I was hoping to have the formation hold at the bottom third of the screen, but the billow that happens is pretty cool too.  I've been told that you can't have too many cloud clips, so i hope you don't mind one more!

You can preview and download the clip by clicking "read more" below.  Happy Downloading!
