My 7D movie - driving at night (link)

Although I bought the camera for photos, it has been fun trying to learn the video functions. I have no training or experience in this area, so it's been a fun challenge. I gave the camera a first try last night and mounted it on my roof and went for a drive. I used a 15mm Sigma f/2.8.

The result is what you see below. I am no pro, but I enjoyed the 45 minute distraction. My biggest challenge actually has been trying to find editing programs that will take .mov files! I am sure I could achieve better results if I didn't have to convert between formats. Any software suggestions?

We have seen a number of terrific pro videos on the camera - but not a lot from amateurs like me (with no gear or expertise). Hopefully it is interesting to some of you.
