Helvetica Light you said? Was that not the right font? I'm not very good at all this! haha

I'm glad you liked it though, I felt a bit bad releasing it before you saw it but I got excited :$

We both use 550d's, usually with a Tokina 10-17mm fisheye on the the front and a few little tweaks to make every day a summer day :P

Damn, nice. Wish I had one ha, I have the Canon 400d, only takes photos. How do you manage to keep it stable without any shaking? I've got a friend with a canon 550d (I think?) and all his clips end up shaky.

Practice! I usually use pretty wide shots so shake isn't too much of an issue, but anything moving i usually go for a proper ninja stance often with an extended tripod underneath to act as a sort of counterbalance if that makes any sense - just relaxing and flowing with it helps (Y)

Hahaha proper ninja stance with a tripod, that would be funny as hell to watch. :P And yeah I know what you mean about the counterbalance.

Have to ride with you guys sometime. :D

Matt definitely has the smoother camera work, that's for sure. You can tell which shots are mine 'cause in general they're not as good as Matt's :P

Really glad you're enjoying our blog, we'll definitely be keeping it updated. We're both really stoked at the fact that people actually seem to like what we're doing :)

Plenty more to come!

Oh cheers for the invite dude... :P

I'll not be partaking in the barrow farm move, really don't get on with that place - 20:15 gearing isn't much fun for imitating pogo sticks.
