If you don’t like the length of a scene you can trim it, if you don’t like the way the story is developing you can alter it, and with myriad audio options (narration, sound effects, music) to choose from, you can dictate the atmosphere of your DSLR video.

There are dozens of PC and Mac video-editing programs available, ranging in price from free or a few pounds to several hundred pounds for the pro stuff, so if you do get the bug there are always more sophisticated options to investigate.
