me and a friend want to start a web series. i have one camcorder and i am interested in buying two lavalier mics for us to use. ive already figured out the lighting but i think sound is more important because the sound quality on the camcorder sucks.
the camcorder i have only has one HDMI port and i'm not sure how to get the mics to hook up to the camcorder or if i can even do that?
I've been shooting web videos for a couple of years with a Canon Vixia G10 camcorder.
I have a possible project lined up, but they client wants to know if they can use the b-roll for other purposes, including 'television'. (I'm not certain what they plan on; I'm guessing neither do they... but possibly commercial spots, which would likely be national, as they're a major company.)
The G10 has onboard scopes so I can keep peaks, etc. in line to be FCC legal... but is that really 'broadcast quality'? It's only 28mbps.
Our team at CES discovered three Canon cameras, VIXIA HF R62, VIXIA HF R60, and VIXIA HF R600, that represent updates to the well-known VIXIA line. We’ll start with the differences, the VIXIA HF R600 is the lowest costed camera and available in white or the standard electronic black. Also, saving video is taking new shape with the Canon CS100, a storage solution for up to 1TB for photos and videos.
I would like to buy a camcorder and my budget is around $1500. Here is some information on my background and intentions which I realize should affect the purchase.
I mainly record indoors comedy videos, but I'm eager to experiment with more artistic style of films which may involve outdoors shooting (does that mean I should get a camcorder that can change lenses?)
I recently got a job as a contracted videographer. The camera that my company provided me with is a Sony HDR-CX190. It's honestly a cheap/lower end camera that would be useful for home videos and that's about it. I'm currently looking to purchase a new camera/camcorder for personal use as well as work and I'd like some input on which direction I should go in. I'm debating getting a DSLR camera that I could also use as a camcorder but I'm not sure which ones will have the best quality.
