    Have you guys starting doing stuff like this too? We offer this as an addon to our wedding packages. Let me know what you think.

    I have since I got the 5D MK II. We actually already offered this in a few jobs in the past however we had our videographer take the video instead. He put together a slideshow and incorporated some video clips with our stills. I think the selling point to this approach is that the video doesn't get neglected over time like it usually does. Combining stills with video I think will catch some of the clients interest however price wise I don't really know how much it's going to be valued. I'd love to do this however as business owners I think specialization is still key...plus I don't know crap about video(taking and editing)! lol. Maybe outsourcing this type of editing can be justified by the mark-up? *shrug*.

    It's fairly new territory for us too. Our clients have been eating it up so far. I'm thinking that I'll know it's a success when people start coming to us because of the fusion video. So far it's generated excitedment, but no new business.

    I really like what you guys did. Is the video taken by your photography business as well?

    Yes. Our primary shooter will shoot photo only. The secondary shooter shoots candid photos and video. On days where we're shooting photo and video, it's an almost constant switch back and forth for the second shooter.

    I'm a fan. :) You've given me another idea now on what I can do for my advisor when I shoot his wedding next summer.

    Thanks guys!
    It seems like prosumer cameras are moving in the direction of offering video. I use the 5D MKII, and I know Canon's 7D offers video now too. I can't remember which Nikon's have video, but I know there's at least 1 or 2.

    The D90 and D300s have video for Nikon.

    I always have mixxed feeling about things like this. For one, it just seems boring to me. And obviously it's neither my wedding, nor my images, so there's not much invested interest on my part. But things like this usually end up being neither a slideshow nor a video, which creates a lack of synergy in my opinion. I tried watching the whole thing, but I just couldn't hang with it. Don't get me wrong, the images are great.

    The other thing is that I've seen people try to use dslr video in two way, besides standalone. It's either combined with video that was shot by a videographer with video equipment, in which case it's very obvious when it goes from video clips to dslr clips; or it's combined with dslr stills in which case you go between crisp, clean still images, and shaky, dull video clips. I'm not saying that's the only way it can be, but it's about all I've seen. A few times I've seen things that are well synergized, bit not many.

    Let me ask a question. How do you deal with the copyright issue of using music in your videos?
