Alright, the backlog of unedited trip videos is slowly thinning out and just in time for the new canoeing season! Be out on the water in a few days!

Anyways heres a video of the French River trip I did late last summer. We put in around Hwy 69, Canoed up the French, crossed over to the Pickerel and followed it down to the Delta and the Bustard islands then came back up the French.

Best watched in HD if you have the bandwidth, enjoy.

Excellent quality on your videos. Looks like you put in a fair amount of effort in order to get some of the shots that you have. Thanks for sharing.

Great Video! How did you do the shot of the canoe going through the meter wide channel? Two takes...or two cameras?

Inquiring minds want to know!!!

Two takes! Though I think in the future we'll use two cameras! But kind of cool going through that small channel a few times.

Also the wind was horrendous for this trip. The good shots were all taken before or after we struggled in the wind for hours.

Simply awesome video footage...very cool. I've just started getting into the Go Pro camera editing. What software are you using, I have a bunch of video to edit and lots to learn!!

Cheers

Jason

Just curious, but what do you use for video editing software?

Amazing sunrise shot! Is it now easy to avoiding bleaching the rest of the shot? Sorry, I'm from the slide days.

That was Dalles Rapids?

Liked the J too; never get the hang of it.

Yup realatively easy, lots of tech advances there, and you can fix it all in post production if it's not 100% the way you wanted it to look

The rapids in the first minute when I'm talking was Recollet Falls. And the set we potaged around was a small set (forget the name, may be unnamed) just before Horseshoe falls

Thanks for the video and all the River and Georgian Bay info.
I had planned on a short 2-3 day paddle around Sheldon Lake near Mindon...but after your video...it looks like I'm going to have to paddle the French.The scenery was that beautiful.
Well done.

Hey guys fantastic work. The French is some of the best eye candy around and you've captured it deftly.
Its great to see so much effort into getting clean well framed shots and you two are naturals on camera. Lots of great info too. I just checked out all the vids on your site. Nice body of work.
I'd love to see a longer compilation piece using all the best of your material... maybe something with a personal side. A retrospective of a father and sons adventures in the backcountry. Theres a great 20 min piece in there somewhere.

I've got one tip for you from the editing perspective.
Drop the dissolve as your default transition.
Straight cuts are far more pleasant. Dissolves have their place but are best used for effect when the occasion calls for it.
You've gone to great length to capture nice footage and your cinematography will have more pop if you stick to cuts.
My two cents.

Keep up the great work... looking forward to your vids this year!

Jason

Thanks for the feedback. As per more eye candy, I finally was able to update my site with a whole batch of new pictures. Slow process, seems I'm more into trip planning for April as opposed to coding a website :wink:
