Great climbing, and it was nice to be able to get a feel for just how crap the holds are on a lot of those problems - often it's just a white blob of chalk on a featureless surface, so you've no idea.


I'm fairly sure that was filmed on a small hand held video camera. Investing in a reasonable tripod (or even a fairly cheap one) will get rid of the shakes. It might be worth playing around with the manual exposure settings as well - Free Willy could have been pushed a bit to get the shaded area dark but visible, and you'd be able to do some mucking about with aperture to get more of the frame in focus on some of the others where it's in close. A DSLR in video mode makes this kind of tweaking easier, at the expense of convenience. A DSLR/tripod + the handheld would open out all sorts of techniques...

If you're putting out videos for sponsors, it's good to make the videos as well as you can. Note that I'm absolutely not saying I can do better, just that I can identify a weakness.
