I need some advice on video cameras
Permalink  
 


I know zilch about cameras (or making videos for that matter), but happily I have reached that stage in my life where making a total prat of myself is rather fun.

So, supposing I wanted to make a video like this...

What sort of camera would I need and what would the specifications be ? 

Lots of thanks in advance.

Ok, to clarify....

I don't want to shoot Gone with the wind, just a hand moving across a sheet of A4 while I drone on about basic calculus and the Star Trek rule. So the watchword is cheap and cheerful. As I have said, I know zilch about cameras, my boy has gone off for a month so he is neither use nor ornament and any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I don't know a lot about the relative merits of various video cameras but the folks at PC Magazine do.

Nobody buys camcorders or dedicated video cameras anymore. (Sorry, nytram!)

 

Any digital camera you buy will have a setting for video and it will work just fine for this purpose. If you have a phone from this decade, it will have the ability to film video as well and you won't have to buy anything.


 To be honest ghostal, I ain't. Gotten a phone from this decade that is. Every few years the phone company send me a replacement mobile to keep me sweet, which it does because I only use it to make phone calls.The current one is about 6 years old and video bit is just about equal to a few pinups of Mary Pickford. But that is a good thought. I will use all my oily charm on Madam and see if I can borrow her mobile.

Many thanks.
