      I have an upcoming shoot where the the viewer will see things happening through the eyes of someone else.I also want to shoot this in high def. I have two camers to choose from. A Sony HVR-Z1U or a JVC consumer hard drive camera.What camera do you think I should use and does anyone have any tips on shooting in this style.

      Hi Mike,

      I would choose the incredible Sony HVR-Z1U. Shooting as though the camera is a person is commonly referred to as point-of-view (POV) shooting.

      There aren’t any big tricks here, just place your camera where your character would be and point your camera where you want your character to look.

      Often (but not always) when shooting POV, the camera is handheld instead of being mounted on a tripod. Doing so helps to simulate how an individual would see the world – as opposed to a rock-solid, no ups or downs shot from a tripod.

      Good luck!

      In Solidarity,

      Alain

      Thanks Alain,

      I was thinking along those lines but when you’re the entire department you don’t have anyone to bounce ideas off of.

      The HVR-Z1U is pretty sweet isn’t it?

      Can I suggest you to watch Being John Malkovich movie?

      It may give you an idea.
