My first foray into video
Written on Tuesday 15 July, 2008
I’m rather pleased. A while ago we bought a video camera and I’ve been playing with it for the last few weeks, trying to decide what I can shoot.
In an earlier post I expounded on the apparent virtues of the Canon HV20. After chatting at length with friends more knowledgeable than me, I decided that it would be better to get a second-hand semi-pro camera than a brand-new consumer one. I think they advised me well: the Sony PDX10 which we’ve bought is fantastic, and (I hope!) plenty rugged enough to withstand life in rural Uganda
I’m still learning how it all works, and how to get the most out of it; but this is my first attempt at camerawork and non-linear editing (in the surprisingly good iMovie).
