Are you shooting corporate videos for your office? Starting a DIY YouTube channel? Looking to start shooting stock footage? Maybe you are a photographer who is looking to start shooting video as well, and you have no idea how to choose a video camera?
There are so many video camera options available – it’s easy to become overwhelmed by the choices. Instead of picking a specific camera or brand, it’s best to first decide what type of camera you need. Here is a handy guide for choosing the best video camera for your needs.
You may be gawking, but today’s cell phone cameras are no joke. Many manufacturers like Apple and Samsung offer 4K video in the palm of your hand.
With built-in image stabilization, users can easily capture decent footage. You can also edit video on your phone and immediately upload your videos online. There is already an entire Swiss news channel shooting on iPhones.
While the footage quality is often sufficient, it can be difficult to capture quality audio, especially if your subject is too far away from the built-in microphone. You’ll probably want to go ahead and invest in a separate audio recorder.
