I get this question a lot “What is B-Roll“, so I thought I would give you my version of the definition in this video.
I show an example video of my sister Tracey Dugdale rock climbing Bastille Crack in Eldorado Springs State Park about 10 minutes from where I live. The climb is one of the most famous in the United States. I created the climbing video pretty fast and didn’t get enough b-roll coverage to last the entire two minute video. I feel like the video starts to drag a little in the last half.
The climbing video was shot with the Canon 5D3, T4i and 60D also the Tarmon 24-70mm and Canon 70-200mm.
Also, I am working on a “Getting Started Guide for the Canon T4i/650D”, it should be out pretty soon, hopefully when I finished my T4i vs 60D comparison (finished).
