    For you people who do wedding videos, where do you get your open source music?

    Thanks

    There are dozens of sites out there. I don't do weddings{well one or two for friends}. I work for a church and we use Digital Juice's products.
    Digital Juice - The Best Products and Prices for Video & Graphics Professionals
    The Stack Traxx are great because you can use all of the instruments in a piece or less, even down to just one. Also every piece is available in 3 or 4 lengths from 15 seconds up to a full 3-5 minutes.
    I have not used them but have heard good things about pond5.com

    wonderful!

    I will check these out.

    also, I see your a Olympus E-PL1 owner. How you like it? I found used deal for $125 with no kit lens but with a few others with adapters:

    link here:
    Olympus Pen E-PL1 w/two lenses

    I was thinking on maybe using it has a "back camera". What are your thoughts on video quality?

    Thanks again

    You can go to Viemo's website and there is a link for music.....some are free, and others are $1.99....lots of original music--some is a little weird, but I can usually find something I can use.

    https://vimeo.com/musicstore


    I just looked on your website, and I see you are on viemo....so, you probably already are familiar with this....

    oh good....give it a try....lots of great music, and it is either free or at a small cost....great way to unite the video photographer and the musician....It is a new service at Vimeo ( always spell this wrong), but one I have used often.

    I had 2 E-PL1s and they were both claimed by my daughters. Both are more than 3 years old and still work fine. That deal looks okay if you don't mind not having autofocus. This E-PL1 and kit lens have been on our For Sale forum for a week; it looks like a good deal.

    I have not used them much for video but they are good{good not great}. I have to admit that the Panasonic models tend to do better video{all their years doing pro video!}. As with most non-camcorder cameras the video recording is time limited. I think it's 7 minutes at full HD on the E-PL1.

    The biggest complaint others have with this and similar cams is that they don't track focus very well. However that is going to be the case with any non-camcorder. In fact even $10k camcorders can have troubles with auto-focus under certain conditions. This is the reason why professionals go manual focus for video.

    I personally have been looking at the Nikon 1 system for doing light video work. From what I have read it really shines in that area. As for m4/3 cameras that do video well the G{newer ones} and GH series from Panasonic and the E-P3 and EM-5 from Olympus outperform the lesser/older models.

    If you are serious about video and on a tight budget a good camcorder will probably work much better for you. Especially if you want to shoot for 20-30minutes{or longer}.

    I ended up finding a GF2 on amazon for $100 with out battery or lens. I bought a battery for $40 and I have lens already!

    GF2's have high bit rate hacks that will be close to a non GH2 hacked
