Pocket and Minicam Buyer's Guide

by Earl Chessher

Pocket and Minicams Buyer's Guide

The right camera isn't always the most expensive or biggest one!

We're reading a lot these days about video producers who are actually making commercially viable productions using a minicam - that pocket cam or even their video-capable cell phone. While these tools, (some call them toys), are not always suitable for the every day shooting and production crunch, they certainly are worth a look for special situations you might encounter. In most cases they're also much easier on the pocketbook. "Commercially viable" might not be where you want to go with a Flip MinoHD or a SANYO minicam. Or any of the dozens of others on the market today. Maybe you simply want a handy, light-weight, easy-to-carry unit that you can whip out and shoot with on a moment's notice. You might be considering a few of these bad boys, budget permitting, to place around at an event - strategically positioned video backups for special POV (point of view) shots you cannot achieve otherwise if you are a lone producer. And there's always the fun, experimental and...Continue

SANYO VCP-CS1 and VPC-SH1 Camcorders

by Tom Cunningham

SANYO VCP-CS1 and VPC-SH1 Camcorders

Two Sanyo cams with different ways to handle and shoot. The VPC-CS1 is a tiny camera that takes good video and still images and the VPC-SH1 has a compact comfortable fit that's priced just right for the consumer.

We present a side by side comparison of two small, high definition, SANYO camcorders at the $300 and $400 range. The VPC-CS1 is a pistol grip pocket camera with a 10x zoom and a thin form factor. The VPC-SH1 is a more traditional style camcorder sporting 30x advanced zoom and a multitude of features. SANYO has offered up two of its newest Exacti "Dual Cameras" to fulfill our need for HD video and high resolution stills. The new cameras support the new SDXC memory cards for many hours of potential recording, and Mini HDMI output to instantly show off the 1920x1080 HD video in its full clarity. In this review, we compare some features of these tiny SANYO camcorders. The VPC-CS1 may be pocket-size, but it would hardly be fair to compare it to pocket camcorders, such as the Flip, or the Creative Vado HD. To start with, the CS1 offers a 10x advanced zoom, and a 9 point autofocus system with face detection. A mini HDMI port on the front means it is ready to share photos and video in HD at any time. Add to that 8 megapixel stills, and you have features comparable to many larger video cameras. The CS1 sports 1920x1080 video at 30 and 60 fps, as well as a variety of resolutions down to 640 x 480. Objects are sharp and detailed, and colors are vibrant...Continue

10 Common Video Mistakes

by Kyle Cassidy

10 Common Video Mistakes

There are a few common mistakes that amateurs make over and over again when capturing video - that's why they're amateurs.

Pros have a long list of DOs and DON'Ts in their heads so deeply ingrained they don't even think of them anymore. They walk into a room and immediately know what belongs in the shot and what doesn't. They know this because they made these mistakes over and over when they were beginners. Here are ten of the biggest ones.
1. The old "Pole Growing from Someone's Head"
This is a compositional error that comes from not paying attention to what's in the background. Trees, poles, and even bits of other people will appear as strange antennae or odd growths. Always keep a vigilant eye on what's behind your talent and how it affects what's in your viewfinder. Also look for things like telephone wires that seem to go in one ear and out another. Even changing your angle slightly can fix these. If you're completely unable to move, you can try lowering up your f-stop to blur out the offending object, or zooming in to crop it out of the ...Continue

Documentary Tip: Copyright Law and the Public Domain

by Julie Babcock

Featured Blog

In the field of documentary it's not uncommon to have to use copyrighted works such as photographs, music, historical footage and artwork. Copyright laws can spell serious problems for your documentary if not followed properly. Many amateur documentarians will simply turn a blind eye to copyright laws which results in legal consequences if they sell or show their documentary to anyone (this includes posting to YouTube and/or other video-sharing sites). Other documentarians will claim the copyrighted item falls under fair use. However, the fair use exception isn't always as black and white as one would hope. One way to avoid copyright legalities altogether is to use material that is in the public domain. The public domain is a collection of work that isn't owned by anyone, therefore free to use by everyone and without requiring special permission. In the United States, there are many different factors that determine when a copyrighted work enters the public...Continue
