I need to devise a way to mount a small Canon Vixia camcorder directly above the subject, but not visible in the frame. What I'm seeing in my head is a hangman type setup like in the picture, except with a longer horizontal top bar. I have a tripod I can use as a base, but not sure exactly how to go about creating something to get the camera where I need it to be... suggestions?

Hi guys- we just received our new Canon XF100 here at work, and I took it home last night to pour through the manual, study what everything does, and try and get the camera set up the way I <i>think</i> I want it... but of course none of this decision-making is based on experience! I'm planning on getting the camera out to our department picnic in a couple of weeks, so I can play with it and really learn to use it under no pressure in a practical environment with bright outdoor light, and lots of different shot types.

Hi Guys

Is this lens any good for video?

I know its cheap and plastic, but the reviews I've seen is that its good for the price for photography, But how about video?

Has anyone got one? and if so what is your perception of it?

Cheers in advance...

Simple task, much more complicated. I've 6-8 cameras and 3-5 screens, I have to connect them and pass the image to screens.
Everything must be going through 1 or 3 computers (mac/pc).
So can someone help me with finding the hardware? I need to buy some switcher which will pass the video from 2-8 cameras to
1 or 3 computers. I just need to write software to manage the passing video, but it must be dynamically and between live video
also need put some adverts.

Thanks for any help.
