SMT: What I Use To Shoot Videos




Shooting video has been been a passion of mine for quite awhile. I remember using a Super 8 camera to shoot movies with the neighbor kids when I was in the 8th grade. (sometime I need to get those uploaded and let the world see my work :) ) I used to have a small editing machine that had a light in the middle and two take-up reels on the left and right. And the I would slice the film with a razor blade and tape the splice back together. If I had then what we have now as far as shooting equipment and editing software, there's not telling where I would have ended up.

But no sour grapes here. My love affair with the film/video camera continues and in this video, I hope to help those of you who are wanting to start using video, but don't know how to get started. Special thanks to Chuck Wheelock for asking the question that got this post started. Chuck's Twitter handle is @chuckwheelock. Sorry for goofing up your Twitter handle in the video.

Reference links to products I mentioned in the video:
Kodak Zi8
Canon Powershot A630
Steve Garfield's GET SEEN
Daisy Whitney's New Media Minute
Audio-Technica Pro 88W Wireless Microphone System
Tabletop Tripod
