a photo captures a moment, but a video captures the experience

If you ever find that your photographs don’t quite tell the whole story of what you’re seeing and feeling in a particular location, consider adding the element of motion. Moving pictures were once the domain of dedicated video and cinema cameras, but today, all DSLR and mirrorless cameras are capable of capturing stunning videos. We’ll teach you the techniques and settings you need to know to use your existing camera to create video clips of landscape and wildlife subjects, and what tools you might invest in to make your camera more video-friendly.
