So, last week all my friends were out of town, and I ended up making a self edit by setting up a tripod by a rail. I would have liked to have the camera farther away to get more of the landing, but I read about a 12 minute recording limit on Canon dslr's, so i kept the camera close, and started/stopped recording every time I hiked. I also planned to have the camera at the same spot for all the shots, but I kept moving the camera every hike trying to figure out the best angle.
Anyways, I'm sure I'm not the only person to do this, so what tips could you guys give to make this easier? Are there any remotes to start and stop recording from far away? (shooting with a t2i) This would help a bunch in post, so I wouldn't have search around in 3 minutes of video just to find one trick, and would also save a ton of space on the SD card.
