  1. Thanks for the tutorial! Just a WARNING for anyone that wants to edit in Premiere Pro – Don't change your file settings to .MOV…

    Premiere Pro doesn't allow .MOV files and you'll need to convert these.

  2. I'm going insane I have a 1500d but I'm missing the 1920×1080 in 30 frames per second and I cannot get my ISO to become manual. Keeps shooting in 3200. I hit the ISO button and it just send the framing box to the top of the viewfinder.

    Any ideas?
