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.
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.
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.
