How do you challenge yourself to keep your video producing skills fresh when you have no current project to work on? Whether you make video for a hobby or for a paycheck, you need to keep at it to stay abreast of the trends and technology and to keep your skills honed and fresh. But sometimes, especially in the hot dull summer months, you can get a bit bored and not want to do much more than settle in a nearby hammock sipping a fruity refreshment or libation of choice.
Hello, I am new to this site and am hoping to learn quite a bit from the expertise of those that I've seen post on here. I would appreciate any kind of advice or knowledge you may have, and I look forward to learning more and more as I go along.
Hi everyone! I have a question, whenever I plug an xlr mic into my Canon MA-300, which is attached to my Canon GL-2. I get only one channel of audio. The same thing happens when I plug my Zoom H2 (via line out) to my GL-2. Is this the norm or am I doing something wrong. I have scoured the GL-2 Manual and cant seem to get a good answer.
I am selling my Canon Vixia HF M41 Camcorder along with bag and accessories. The camera is barely used, almost untouched. I still have the original packaging of the camera.
For a product description, please see here: http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/consumer/products/camcorders/consumer_camcorders/vixia_hf_m41
It comes with an AC adapter for charging, a battery, 32GB internal flash memory, an HDMI adapter cable, and a USB mini cable.
Hello guys ! I really need some help in picking a camera to start shooting videos. I want to do a combination of sketches + a bit of vlogging , that will be the format of the "show". I was thinking of buying a JVC HM30/Samsung Q10/Canon HFR205 or even a SonySX45E , but when i went to the shop the salesman told me that camcorders are crap and i should try a cheaper alternative, a Canon PowerShot A3300 to shoot videos. I have about 230$ budget to buy a camera. Can anyone give me some info, which is better for shooting videos ?
I posted this over at avsforum.com but was told I might want to check here, so here goes.
I've been into amateur movie production toward the end of high school and through college with a buddy of mine. He had a GL2 for a while, then upgraded to HD with a smaller Canon Vixia HV40 and a JAG35 adapter and simple shotgun mic mount. Those were the cameras we both worked with to make some movies for fun and shoot snowboarding a little. Having worked with that camera for a couple of years now, I've noticed some downsides to the lack of manual control.
I'm interested in getting serious with filmmaking and I'm planning on purchasing a DSLR to upgrade from an HD Camcorder. For the past month or so, I've been looking at the Canon T3i. It's not overly expensive and the tilting LCD is a big plus (coming from a camcorder user). The only thing that's making me hesitate is the new T4i which features autofocus. I've been using a camcorder for three years and it's all autofocus, so I've never had to use manual during filming.
Does anyone know if the Canon 600d records in 44khz or 48khz?
Cheers in advance
I've just upgraded to a Canon 600d and wondered if someone could give me a straight forward answer about which lens to choose for film, without all the indepth technical stuff. (Cheaper the better, because i'm still learning).
I'm after makes/models that will fit the Canon 600d with links if possible.
Cheers in advance
