Choosing a Video Cam

Like any other gadget, you need to carefully choose a video cam if you want to get something that is worth your money and your time. Here are some of the considerations you need to have in mind when choosing a video cam.

You need to have an established purpose as to why you want to have a video camera in your home or workplace. This should be well-defined and stated by you whenever you want to buy one and have it installed in your home. A good number of buyers have bought it for security purposes. In places where you are not confident of the safety of your property, it is one way of establishing what goes on in your absence. It is one way of knowing what the people in your home do when you are not around- a spy camera or a nanny cam for your nanny. They have been used for a long time by professionals who observe nature and migration patterns, etc.; employers observe the whereabouts of their employees using cameras installed in their work places. Its one of the best ways of preventing theft since its presence will deter someone with dishonest intentions from doing what he had planned. Those who go ahead to do it will be caught and there will be enough evidence to prosecute them.

Buying a camera for security purposes in your home or workplace will require you to weigh all your available options. For the most basic of features (good recording memory and wireless connectivity) you may not have to part with a lot of money. However, in case you are looking for color footage and other accessories you will have to pay a lot more; several hundred dollars to be exact. Installation of cameras in your home may need the services of a professional, so you need to think about this fee as well.

Those who are on budget may have to work with what they have. The principle of using what you have to get what you do not have works well in this instance. You can spend about $50 or even less to record and spy on every activity that is going on in your home from your mobile phone or even your laptop. The DIY camera is the typical type for use in homes and in business places. It is cheaper and does not come with installation expense. An alternative is buying a webcam and if you already have one on your laptop you can use it to function the same way as a surveillance camera. From there, you can spy on every activity in your home or business from the comfort of wherever you will be. Those who have this software in their phones can record everything from their phones.

Flip Tips – Flip Video Cam 101

The Flip Video camera’s brilliance is in its simplicity. Just click the on switch, point and shoot! To record, press the big red button on the back of the Flip (you can’t miss it!) To stop recording, hit the red button again. It really is that simple!

The interface is basically the same whether you’re using the original, early model Flip Video, the popular Flip Ultra, or the new Flip Mino. Of course, each version has gotten a bit smaller, slicker and a bit more expensive.

As of this writing, the original Flip Video retails for $129.99 (USD), though we’ve seen it as low as $89! The original has 1GB memory and holds 60-minutes of video. The colorful Flip Ultra, in your choice of five, bright colors, has 2GB space and room for 60-minutes of video. The Ultra retails for $149,99 (USD). The newest addition to the Flip family is the Mino, also with 2GB and 60-minutes of video recording time. The Mino runs $179.99, but is smaller and has an internal battery. Earlier models require 2 AA batteries. The new Mino also adds some increased functionality, such as pause, fast-forward and rewind functions for playback.

On all models, after you’re done with your one-touch recording, you “flip” the camera’s USB arm open, plug it into your computer’s USB port, launch the built-in software and you’re ready to share your video! The Record-Connect-Share process is fast and easy.

Once you’ve got your video on your computer, you’ve got options for e-mailing your video, or publishing directly to YouTube, AOL Video, and with the Mino, to MySpace, as well. With the e-mail function, you can send a link to your video, or share a greeting using their private online greeting templates. You can also save and organize your videos to your computer, or as an email attachment.

The Flip’s features even allow you to create your own “movie mix,” by adding music or built-in effects. In addition to the auto-upload to YouTube, you can save your video to upload to other video-sharing websites. You can also organize your videos with the Flip’s video library.

The minimal controls on the Flip keep things simple, too. You can record, playback, or delete your unwanted “takes” with a couple of obvious buttons. There are also controls for zoom (not much) and volume. As mentioned above, the Mino adds pause, fast-forward and rewind options.

All the Flips come with a tiny, but adequate 1.5″ (diagonal) LCD screen, and the video quality and resolution is remarkable for such a low-priced camcorder. The video format output is MPEG-4 AVI, a relatively user-friendly format. Two AA (alkaline) batteries should give you up to 2 hours of continuous use, so bring extras if you’re planning a trip or heavy use. If you opt for the newer Mino, the battery is built-in.

The handy, little Flip cameras weigh just over 5 ounces, and the Mino is a mere 3.3 ounces. The Ultra and the Mino have a tripod mount on the bottom, and all models have a built-in microphone and speaker. The cameras include a TV-out jack so you can connect your Flip to a television. You can also snap still photos from the Flip video.

Editing video on the Flip itself is very limited, but you can change the start and end points of your video. In addition, the “movie maker” function gives you a choice of six movie styles or “effects.”
As for the built-in Flip Video software program, the minimum requirements for Windows are as follows: Intel Pentium 4.2.0 GHz, Windows XP SP2 w/ 512MB of RAM, or Visa w/ 2GB of RAM, and USB port. Requirements for the Mac are: Power PC G4 1.0 GHz or Intel Core, w/ 512MB RAM, OS X Tiger 10.4 or Leopard 10.5, and USB port.

Learning the Basics of a Video Recorder

What is a Camera Recorder?
A camera recorder is frequently referred to as a “camcorder”. A camcorder is two devices combined into one device: a camera and a recording unit. Camcorders that were manufactured in previous years were still two devices in one, but the video was attached by means of an umbilical cord that was hooked to a large piece of recording equipment. As time and technology progressed, the video cam recorder evolved many times. Today’s recording and capturing devices are equipped with enhanced technology, such as HDMI, time lapse, and being waterproof. The recording devices that are available today on the market are not only equipped with advanced technology but professional software, such as GoPro.

Is There a Difference Between Video and Film?
Many people are curious to know if there is a different between video and film. Video and film are similar in many ways, but there are a few aspects that make them different from one another. Film has been around much longer than video and is more complicated. Film is the basic way of capturing video before technology evolved. With film, celluloid was used to expose an image to silver highlight so people could develop the image and print it if they wanted. With today’s technology, the process of developing film is not required because the methods and techniques have been simplified. Video captures an image in the same way film does, but instead of manually doing everything manually, video does everything electronically. In this instance, light is converted into multiple frequencies. Although video and film are two different techniques for capturing images, many people consider them to be one method.

What are the Benefits of Owning a Video Recorder?
In order to enjoy the many benefits a camera recorder, you need to purchase a recording device that is equipped with the feature you need to capture the best images and video. The primary benefit of a video recorder is capturing memories. The memories you capture will last forever. You can replay the memories as many times as you would like, even when the moment occurred many years ago. Another benefit of owning a video cam recorder is convenience. Regardless of where you are or what you are doing, you can capture the events that take place. Camcorders are available in many different styles, sizes, and colors to meet your needs.

When Should You Purchase a New Recording Device?
Your electronic device will indicate when it is time for you to replace it. People who have first, second, or third generation recording devices may be interested in upgrading to new features and formats. Other reasons people may want to replace their video device is because the device has reached the end of its lifespan. A few ways you can tell your device is reaching its lifespan is by noticing the picture or sound quality is not what it once was. Some devices stop working and have to be replaced. Sometimes the battery has to be replaced and minor repairs need to be made to restore the video recorder to its high-quality status.

You Don’t Really Need a Video Camera

You don’t really need a video camera to capture the beauty of the flowers in the Iris Garden but when the light breeze blew the clouds away and the sunlight haloed the plants in a soft shimmering glow I pulled the little compact video cam from my pocket and started filming.

This is an amazing garden with a fantastic panorama of award winning Iris, but even names like bumblebee deelight, play with fire, acapulco gold, purple pepper, blueberry parfait and lacy snowflake, barely describe the vast array of color combinations on display. To truly appreciate these incredible flowers requires a walk through the garden, breathing in the remarkable floral fragrances and feasting the eyes on the palette of blooming sensory delights. Each Iris has a mixture of unique colors and its own distinct scent. In addition, poppies, lupines, pansies, clematis and peonies provide accent and compliment for the showy Iris.

While focusing on the thick column of dark blue and white clematis and zooming in on the slender, delicate, pastel columbines, I nearly bumped into you. Palm-sized video camera still in hand captured the flickering amusement on your face and in your smiling blue eyes.

But my hopes of titling the moment something like the first time ever I saw your face dissolved when you started laughing and ask me, by name, how I was and how everything was going.

What? Ah time, that pesky bandit raised the bar and I had to rummage through my memory banks to pull forth a name to attach to your cheerful face.

My memory obliged, years evaporated as a million and one details rushed in to fill the space between now and the last time I spoke with you at the crowded Easter Egg hunt. Faces of the many joyful children and their excitement as they waited for event to begin flipped through my mind. As the sun highlighted a bit of gray in your hair, I wondered how many years it had been and I realized those laughing children but must be college age, young adults by now.

We fell into one of those good to see you, how long has it been, how is everyone, catch up conversations, while the forgotten video recorder continued recording. In addition to capturing the beautiful garden and your smiling face it recorded every word. When I returned home, I watched the video with delight then emailed you a copy requesting permission to post the video for our mutual friends.

While I do not offer professional videographers any competition, I am very delighted to have captured the unexpected fun of seeing you and the ensuing great catch up meeting on video. Now if I could only add the wonderful fragrance of the gardens to the digital chronicle the essence of the meeting would be complete.

Pros and Cons of Shooting Video With a DSLR Camera

*DSLR stands for Dig­i­tal Sin­gle Lens Reflex. It’s the cam­era that pho­tog­ra­phers use.

In 2008 Canon start­ing adding a video mode to their DSLR cam­eras. They had no idea the phe­nom­e­non that it would bring.

DSLRs have huge sen­sors (the mech­a­nism that con­verts light to video) and way more, cheaper, high qual­ity lenses (also referred to as “glass”).

These fac­tors give DSLR cam­eras very sharp imagery as well as a very shal­low depth of field. Depth of field or Dof, refers to the focus of the image or video. A deep Dof is when the fore­ground and the back­ground of an image are both in focus. You see this com­monly in land­scape shots.

Shal­low Dof is when one part of the image is in focus while the rest is not. For exam­ple, imag­ine a romance movie. About 3/4 of the way through the film, the man and woman run to one another and kiss in the rain. On a close-up of them kiss­ing, you’d see them in focus, with the back­ground out of focus. You see it all the time in the movies, almost always used dur­ing back and forth dia­logue when 2 actors are talk­ing. This is a very sought after look by video pro­fes­sion­als and before DSLR video was extremely expen­sive to achieve. DSLR cam­eras achieve this look for a fifth of the price.

I started my videog­ra­phy career with a Sony VX-2000. It’s an older lit­tle Sony pro­sumer standard-def cam­corder. After I mas­tered that I was ready to upgrade to a Hi-def cam­era, but I didn’t have much money and good cam­eras are very expen­sive. I saw the qual­ity that DSLRs are capa­ble of and I became very inter­ested. The Canon 60D was in my price range and I bought it. It came with a 18-135mm EF-S lens. It shot 1080i and 720p at 24, 30 and 60fps (frames per sec­ond). It was a good cam­era and I really liked it. How­ever I got the oppor­tu­nity to upgrade to the Mer­cedes Benz of DSLRs…. The Canon 5D Mark II. I also got it with a 24-105mm canon L-series lens. It shoots beau­ti­ful, crys­tal clear, film­like video and I love it. Now here are the pros and cons

What’s great about DSLRs for video, and the rea­son they are so pop­u­lar, is the film­like qual­ity with the shal­low depth of field you can obtain for a much, much lower price. For exam­ple, experts often com­pare the canon 5d mark II to the Red One cam­era, which costs $25k. Now of course the Red One is a nicer cam­era, it shoots at 2k res­o­lu­tion, but it’s $25,000, the canon 5d mark II is $2,500 and the qual­ity is com­pa­ra­ble. For Inter­net and DVD pur­poses, the qual­ity is neg­li­gi­ble. In the­atre it would be obvi­ous, but what your video looks like in movie the­atres is not rel­e­vant to most. Any­way the point is the qual­ity for the price is incredible.

Now here’s the cons. No mat­ter how awe­some the video qual­ity is, it doesn’t change the fact that DSLRs are built for still pho­tog­ra­phy and only recently started offer­ing video. This means that they have crude audio capa­bil­i­ties. No man­ual audio gain con­trols with­out hacks or patches, no xlr (high qual­ity audio input), the built in mic is too low qual­ity to use, also it’s small and with­out a han­dle so it’s dif­fi­cult to oper­ate smoothly and it doesn’t have a con­trolled zoom.

All these cons have workarounds but it’s a more dif­fi­cult process than with a reg­u­lar video cam­era and it costs money. Even with these costly extras DSLR cam­eras are still worth the money but the ease of use and time it takes to bal­ance out the short­com­ings depend entirely on you. You absolutely have to get a sta­bi­liz­ing rig for smooth shoot­ing off the shoul­der, oth­er­wise your footage will be too shaky. These rigs aver­age around $500 with the higher qual­ity ones around $2,000. You can do what some peo­ple do and build your own rig or order the com­po­nents sep­a­rately and assem­ble it your­self. I’m going to do an entire post ded­i­cated to choos­ing or build­ing a rig and once it’s com­plete I’ll insert a link to it here.

Because the DSLR has poor audio capa­bil­i­ties, what most peo­ple do is buy a portable audio recorder to cap­ture audio sep­a­rately from the cam­era. You plug your mic in use that to dig­i­tally record your audio. Thats a great way to get high qual­ity audio, the prob­lem is, since the video and audio are not being recorded by the same device, you’ll need to sync these in post. You can do this man­u­ally using the a clap­per or snap etc. but there is a much sim­pler solu­tion which is a pro­gram called plural eyes. Plural eyes will auto­mat­i­cally sync your video to your audio in your time­line. It does this by lin­ing up the sep­a­rately recorded audio wave­forms to the audio wave­forms recorded by your low qual­ity built in cam­era mic. It’s not always per­fect but if you’re get­ting decent audio from your cam­era then it works quickly and effec­tively. There’s also a sis­ter pro­gram called dual eyes that will auto­mat­i­cally sync all the video files to all the audio files out­side of your edit­ing application.

In con­clu­sion, DSLRs give you excel­lent qual­ity for the price. How­ever, you’ll need to decide for your­self whether or not the short­com­ings of shoot­ing with a pho­tog­ra­phy cam­era are accept­able to you as a video creator.

I hope this article outlining the pros and cons of shooting video with a DSLR has been helpful to you…

Understanding specific needs
Every business is different and so are their branding needs. In such a scenario, no concern can afford to go for ONE SOLUTION FITS ALL when it comes to strategizing. Brand consultant that you hire, should understand what your concern is about, what kind of audience it caters to, and what are your business goals or targets. Based upon such crucial points they are going to plan their strategy that works for you. Ideally, you should find a consultation agency that has prior experience in the type of business that you have. This will aid them when researching the best options for your products and services.
Know biggest success
You should always know about the successes achieved by the consulting companies, which are thinking to hire. Do not take their word for it, but rather try to dig references and get evidence to corroborate their claims. This way, you’ll be sure to find the best person or agency for your requirement. After all, if a company has achieved success in reaching branding goals for other business similar to yours there’s a high chance that it will be able to do the same for you too. A company with good achievements will be in a better position to develop brand, positioning strategy that works.
Not shy of failure
If a company is bragging too much regarding its achievements over the years, make sure that it is outlining the lessons it learnt over the years too. Failures are always a big part of development since it makes one to learn from the mistakes. Therefore, the perfect company for you will be the one that has taken wrong decisions in its stride and has grown stronger and more successful because of it. After all, such a company will be able to know for sure which brand strategy to avoid in your case. So, hiring them will make sense.
