  2. My Video of Shimmer & Shriek



    What do you think compared to stock video ?
     
  3. Very different. The cake looks quite rubbish in the 2nd video.

    I don't know what the actual selling price of this is, but if it's close to its RRP, I would imagine there will be a lot of unhappy customers!

    Thanks for the heads up guys. Yes, there is a typo on the production description above - it should say 43 shots. We strive to film all of our products using HD wherever possible, as we did for Shimmer & Shriek. As for the other footage - well they say the camera never lies....except when you are filming fireworks!! :)

    Am I missing something here... rrp £59.95? After watching the recent video am thinking maybe worth £30 max. Surely this does not sell anywhere near £60? Maybe it was a one off dodgey one chorlton fired because the official magnum video looks outstanding and almost to good to be true its loud bright and rapid, Hmmmm I know which one I trust to be a true example
