I'm sure this question has been asked many timesbefore! I am interested in knowing if a Prosumer camcorder exists in the $2000.00 price range, that has a professional appearance,Fairly good sound recording, and good picture quality, even in lower light situations, or am I just fooling myself thatthis could be out there.
To satisfy the demand by videographers for "true" fluid pan and tilt heads as supports for the new HDSLRs and DSLRs such as Canon 5D Mk II or 7D and other high-end hybrid digital SLR cameras; CARTONI has revamped the successful classic ACTION PRO, introducing the new ACTION PRO HDSLR, dedicated to these modern extremely sophisticated DSLR and compact Video cameras.
Sorry for the title guys but just wanted my question answered and myself saved from wondering all the live long day soo...Hi all. New here and love the site! So I run a small video dept at a recording studio and just offer some basic video services. I have a question concerning options on cams. I have a thermal camera with an analog out on it. I would like to record the outgoing video and also pick up a nice handy camcorder at the same time. Ideally I'd like to do a high def, hard drive cam with an analog video in. It would also be great if it were small and easy to handle.
When someone new approaches me with a video project they've shot that they want me to gently critique I can always tell if that person has had any still photography training within just a few seconds. The first things skilled still photographers do is compose. They see the finished shot in their mind before they ever even put the camera to their eye. They instantly see the Rule of Thirds grid, or Divine Proportion, (also called Golden Rule), and they often say they "compose" shots everywhere they look, whether they are shooting or not. These are the people I call "The Eye".
Where are all the shooting gigs? How do you find them? Craigslist? Your local newspaper want ads? Some other vague work-for-hire site?
I just got back last night from shooting a 3-day gig with my brother down in central California. His specialty has been architectural, environmental, lighting and product images, my specialty has been all about people: interviews and sound recording. Together we made a pretty good team and wondered how we'd shop ourselves around better.
