I have to admit, I haven’t been doing a good job about sharing some of my video production and online media expertise with my web audience.
One of my passions is teaching, and I love to speak about what I know about the news business, media relations, and video production.
So here is my first official video lesson. I discuss two inexpensive video cameras that could be used for you vlog, video podcast, vodcast etc.
The Flip cam retails at about $150, and there area a variety of models, even an HD camera. What I don’t like, is that the Flip camera doesn’t have a mic input, and it can’t zoom. It’s just a basic point and shoot camera.
If you want to step it up a notch, consider the Canon ZR900. It’s a great entry level camcorder, and it has a mic input. That’s a plus if you’re recording audio. The Canon ZR900 retails at around $250.00.
If you’re building a video production kit, don’t forget about buying a tripod. If you’re producing a vlog, you don’t need anything expensive. If you’re going to be taping movement, well that’s another lesson.
