This could fall in any one of a number of other topic titles, and certainly might become more of a "Making Losses" instead of "Making Profit" but I'm gonna put my wish/shopping list for 2010 up here. Some, if not all of it will be purchased by Dec. 31, and hopefully the remainder in 1st quarter 2011. At the current level of production work I'm getting, and have booked over the next several months, it is not ALL wishful thinking.
In one of my older posts discussing shooting with the new Canon DSLR video cameras the question of how they handled action footage was the one posters myself included wanted to know. Well I ran across this video by photographer turned cinematographer Patrick Murphy-Racey and his shoot of the SEC football championships shot with the 7D. Shot in 720p at 60p with a Canon pro telephoto lense the imagery is just phenomenal. See for yourselves.
I really am not sure anyone knows the answer to the following; and those that do, do not seem to be giving up the info.
I want to create/build a professional Internet TV Streaming Studio. So far, I have been using an Canon HV30 (through Firewire - it is awful and extremely unstable). I am also using an Alesis Audio Mixer, relatively fair microphones, and fair to good lighting.
In spite of the downturn economy my company has been closely researching camera models to augment our existing HD workflow. So far, the one I keep coming back to is the Canon EOS 5D MkII. The only other camera in the same weight-class when it comes to video imagery is the Red Scarlet in that it can shoot in film resolutions of 3-5k. But to achieve that you will spend tens of thousands of dollars to do so.
hey im a wedding videographer but ive been asked to do something a little out of my league. i shoot with 3 cameras at weddings but the audio isnt important so i put music tracks through the entire video. well some friends ask me to shoot live footage of them singing with multiple cameras but i do not know how to get the best audio quality. i ran across this perfect example of the kind of video they want on youtube. ill post a link in this post. my question is can you tell me what they are using in this video to get the great live audio.
Im looking for a video camera that give me a decent quality video and sound for a modest price. But there is one thing that I'm considering and is buying two cameras for multiple camera shotting. To me is extremly important to have many different camera angles but, should I buy two medium rate cameras or should I buy one High rate video camera? (My budget is around $1000)
Tell me what camcorder or camcorders youve own and presently own and tell me the PROS and CONS about it...or not all that but like things that really attract you to that camcorder like special features or things that are like really bad like malfunctions, things around that...ok
