I film youth football games and use Pinnacle v12, Sony FX1000 20X zoom HD (prosumer camera = $3200) Panasonic GS 150 12X zoom (lower end $800). Both work great.Most of what you want to do will be done in Post Production during editing. Sometimes I interview after the game, and tell them act like the game hasn’t taking place. Makes the coaches sound like they have good predictions of the games outcome. They should, the game just happened. All of what you want tocapture has to be mentally planned prior to the day of the game. What is your theme or is each game footage going tolook pretty much the same from game to game.
The day of the game, all types of things can go wrong. And as Forest Gump says, “You never know what you’re going to get.”
