A bad idea

Ever had one of those moments where you know something is a way too large undertaking, but you decide to do it anyway? That is how I feel about doing video. For the longest time I was telling myself not to get involved in it, out of obvious reasons. Video is exponentially more difficult than photography: you have ~30 frames per second, where before you had one; you now have sound to think about, unless you do it completely silent; lighting for video is a completely different beasts, as speedlights do nothing; there are ridiculous amounts of data unless you shoot everything compressed (and coming from shooting RAW, that would feel like a serious step down).

So what to do? Down the rabbit hole head first? Might as well...
