I think you can do an outs


I think you can do an outstanding job with some pretty inexpensive video cameras; however, if this is going to be a hobby/business that you intend to grow I suggest you spend a little more on your camera than you need. People who don’t know anything about what you are doing will make judgements based upon your cameras. An expensive camera draws attention and potential clients. People will give your tripods a wide berth if they see a professional camera on it. I also think you need two cameras. I’ve always shot with at least two. One gives me the long shot and my safety, then I’m free with my second camera to go for the “money shot”. Low light performance is very important. Some churches are poorly lit for video and they may be going by candlelight. Reception venues can be worse. Wireless? I’ve been on a lot of movie sets and they spend a ton on wireless, but they still don’t trust them so they back them up with wired mics. I have a wireless mic. I’ve used it a few times. I don’t trust it. Do you know what an Zoom H4 unit is? They are fantastic. You can use them as they are or add a shot gun to them. Basically you only need it for the vows anyways. I hope I didn’t scare you off. I know you’re going to have a great time. Realize that you probably can’t avoid making a few hardware mistakes, I’ve made my share. Gerry in Calgary
