Digital Video – Deep Dive #2: Shooting Video on Dedicated Camcorders

Want to take your video to the next level…or simply don’t want to fill your phone with the footage? A dedicated camcorder, DSLR, or professional video camera may be the right move for you. In the second deep-dive into the world of digital video, the Brothers discuss the benefits of using a dedicated camera as your video camera as your capture device and also share some tips for improving that experience. Oh…and Alan learns how to add sound effects to our podcast. You won’t want to miss that.

In addition, the “BiTS” (Brothers in Tech Suggestions):

  • Brian’s Pick = Deity V-Mic D3 (sold by Moment, $99): a shoe-mounted microphone for DSLR’s or camcorders (although will work with other devices due to 3.5mm jack).
  • BONUS (aka, Alan’s correction to Brian’s BiTs): Rode Microphones…which Alan believes are better!
  • Alan’s Pick = Atomos Ninja V: External storage and playback device (~$600). Record directly to the device (with your own storage added) and playback with the built-in monitor.
