Hi, I tried out the above in video mode and when I download the file it's something like 25meg. How do I make the file smaller with good quality? Is it down to settings I use in the camera or would it be software on PC?
Look forward to hearing from someone

As video files go 25 mb is absolutely tiny, wait till you start shooting several minutes of HD video
I'm not familiar with the 1D 1V but you can most likely change the recording quality in the menu's. Check your manual and it should explain what your options are. You can obviously choose to shoot SD (standard definition) footage and the file sizes will be much smaller. I'm not sure you would really want to though as the beauty of video recording on DSLR is the capability of shooting in High Definition.
Unfortunately video files are large and the better the quality required the larger the file. On the plus side, hard drives are relatively cheap, making storage easy and affordable. On the downside, a relatively modern and powerful computer is needed to work with HD video files from a Mk 1V.
