I have never really tried my hand at video before, only the still images of the DSLR. So I have been reading different threads in here and trying to gain some information on the topic but cannot seem to find the answer to this question.
When you have the raw video files from the 7D what can be done to reduce the size of the file while maintaining the same quality? A 1 minute video is coming in around 1/2 GB. That seems a little large or am I just wishing for something that cannot be done while maintaining the same quality? I know I can reduce the video capture from 1920x1080 to 1280x720 to 640x480 and changing the frame rate but I am hoping to keep the highest resolution here.
What programs do you guys use to edit the videos to decrease file size?
Thanks in advance for any and all advice / tips on video editing.
