well if you must work in low light then go with a 2/3″ 3-ccd cam they will work best in low light.
Do you mean 1/3″?
LIke this?Panasonic AG-DVX100B
It’s not HD but I’m not too conserned about that.
Thanks all…. The JVC is out.
I’m shopping around….. I hate this.
What are your thoughts on the following?
– Canon GL2
Thanks again. Tony
Regarding your thoughts on where technology is going….. I think you’re right and I am still leaning towards the HD7 because it has the feel and look of a prosumer camera, but I can get it for $662.
You’re reading my mind…. Seems I go through technology every 2-3 years. It’s aconspiracy.
Don’t laugh… I’ll be shooting a lot of video of, ehm, chickens. YES, you heard me right…. Chickens in their houses, with yellow lighting.
I’ll also be shooting for a furniture showroom.
I totally agree. It’s just like still photography, lighting makes and breaks the shot. However, I’m shooting in conditions where I can’t bring my own lighting… 🙁
I’m also finding that the quality of the image is much like still shots, post production has MUCH to do with the quality of the image, but not everything. You can only polish a turd so much.
I agree, there is a difference. Now my next question. Is there a $2300 difference?
YEs, the JVC has a smaller focus ring, as well, the lens is quite smaller than the Canon. I’ve seen some real nice video come off the JVC, but I’m just not convinced it’s what I will want 3 years from now….
Hey, I like that idea!
I’m pricing out a macbookpro, GS500 camera, FCP, another monitor and the mics.
Thanks all for your input.
I’m using 2 cameras. I’ll most likely get another panasonic GS500
I’m sorry for all the posts and newbe questions…. I’m planning on getting a second camera. So I’ll be using one on the panel and one panning and zooming on the person asking the question. So I’m thinking of having ONE wireless mic that all the panelists speak into, and the one on the audience would be a shotgun.
Ok, I’ll stop posting on my own thread now 😉
Just got some more info from my client. The room won’t be huge and the audience will be amanageablenumber. So a person running around with a mic so the panel can hear the question won’t be needed. In other words, we won’t need the audience to speak in a mic and have it over a speaker system for the panel to hear it. They will simply speak out so everyone can hear, thus I believe a shotgun should work.
My only concern about using a boompole and shotgun is that you may have trouble getting all the audio, being able to move the mic quickly enough to get panelists and audience members without it being awkward.
Precisely. I was thinking the same thing.
Are the shotgun mics good at picking up audio? I have another client that I shoot TV commercials for and I’ve wanted to shoot with talent but have never done it. Would a shotgun mic work?
Newmovies, I’m sorry, I didn’t even see your posts. I think you posted while I was posting and I never saw them. Thanks for your input.
My current camera is a GS300 and has an external MIC input….
LOL…. dude, the thought of putting a mic by a speaker… LOL
Anyway, I’m researching shotgun mics…. >http://www.videomaker.com/article/12670/
How does this work if I have it on a boom? Long cord?
Thanks again > TOny
Thanks for the info thus far.
I will be using FinalCut studio for editing the video, and the audio will be edited using SoundTrackPro. I might be getting the Adobe suite instead, not sure yet….
What if I have someone wondering around with a mic on a boom. How’s this sound (no pun intended)? Wireless Mic?
I kind of understand what you are suggesting, but I don’t like the idea of recording the audio trough the speaker, will that come out sounding ok?
You do bring up a good point, I need to figure out how to capture the audio while having it play over speakers for all to hear. Hmmmm. Can you tell I’m a newbe? I’m a self taught person, have been all my life, so I’m enjoying this research and I’m looking forward to working on this.
