A little advice please...
on Feb 17, 2012 at 1:00:52 am

So I am at a point were I either need to invest in better lenses, a better camera or switch to a camcorder as opposed to DSLR. Can you please take a minute to look over my workflow and take a look at my recent edit? I would appreciate some constructive criticism, in any form. Can I improve my workflow or is a camcorder or lenses the only way to increase quality? Thanks in advance!

canon T2i
canon 50mm 1.4
canon 75-300 4-5.6 (only used this lens in the video below)
kit lenses
basic tripod (looking for a good used fluid head)
Flycam dslr Nano (not used in the video)
Rode external mic

shoot at 1280x720 at 60FPS (mostly fast moving motocross)
transcode with mpegstreamclip to proress 422
import and edit in FCP7
edit and usually use "saturate" and "unsharp mask" presets
export as quicktime .mov
compress with "youtube" presets in compressor
upload to youtube and vimeo

The video on my macbook pro definitely looks better before uploading to youtube or vimeo, but still not as clear as I'd like. Here's the clip, thanks again.
