Assignment: shoot a documentary series for Internet presentation consisting primarily of interiors and talking heads.

For this we used the following lighting and photographic equipment purchased from B&H.

Our Interfit Fluorescent Lighting set-up consisting of 3 x Super 5's and a Prolite 9 instrument.
For photography we chose 2 VIXIA HF R400HD cameras, together with 2 PNY 32 GB class 10 High Performance memories, 2 SONY 32 GB class 10 memories, 2 Duracell 9 V batteries for our mic and a Rode VideoMic.

Lighting: the Interface Fluorescent Lighting set up worked great. All of the instruments were lightweight, easy to set up and break down and provided excellent lighting with the diffusers in place. All of our energy consumption was handled easily by two circuits (it could have been one) and we would highly recommend this system for productions that want quality lighting on a budget.

Microphone: the Rode VideoMic easily attached the hand bracket that was attached to the camera and the mic consistently provided professional quality sound for our 12 foot throws.

Memory: the PNY 32 GB class 10 High Performance memories worked flawlessly in recording and reading our video project. He depended on them and making
The SONY 32 GB class 10 memories worked flawlessly in recording and reading our video project. We depended on them and they came through.

Batteries: one Duracell 9 V battery provided all the power necessary for the Rode VideoMic. It is rated at 100 hours. We can rely on it with confidence.

Cameras: the VIXIA HF R400HD best met our criteria for the shoot. We locked down one camera and roamed with the other during panel discussions.

Camera Pros:
Excellent picture quality at 35 Mbps, 60 P.
Excellent Canon optics.
Excellent zoom ratio – 35mm equivalent of 32.5 mm x 1,723 mm (but the HD format is as wide as a 35mm 4 x 3 format at 20 mm).
Excellent zoom – snap manual zoom plus three motor zoom speeds worked fine.
Microphone input – for professional sound we used the Rode VideoMic.
Earphone output – we used ear buds.
Memory – Two hour recording time with the 32 GB SBHC memory cards was essential for the success of this project.

Camera Cons:
Color temperature – the cameras seem to be warm, but they cut well together.
No hot shoe – we used our own hand bracket for the Rode VideoMic.
No threads on lens for additional lens or filter mounts – but, we didn't need anything else.
No manual control of exposure – however, we were able to keep the lighting set-up consistent with the use of a handheld meter.
Camera is slow – we rated the1/4.85" CMOS at ISO 160, but easily maintained the recommended 100 Lux minimum illumination through the numerous lighting controls and metering.

We've been working with B&H for over 20 years in still photography and they have always answered all of our technical questions. Their expertise has been indispensable during this media transition. B&H has always helped us get the quality results we want for the price we want to pay.

I had Duracell in one of those tape recorders I left in storage while I was in the Marine Corps. I came home and there was still life in it. Having grown up in the day of the leaky old battery, I was thankful it did not leak, and amazed it could store energy for about 4 years. Good stuff for those days. TODAY, Duracell has better batteries. Buy once, recharge, stop filling landfills with old alkaline batteries. Faster than going to the store, get the Duracell chargeable AA's and look for a chargeable 9 Volt too. We need to reduce our contribution to land fills. This battery will serve you well in an emergency, but better yet, go with chargeable and be ready for the long haul. THANKs Duracell!

        Can't say much about a battery; batteries are nice things to tack on to your order if you're, say, less than [$] away from free shipping, hahaha.

              I trust Duracell. They normally work. I haven't had a chance to test it out in my Rode mic, which came with my camera from B&H. I'm just going to give this a 5 star, predicting that it won't disappoint me.

                                            Comments about Duracell 9V Alkaline Battery (Coppertop):

                                            I've had good experiences with Duracell, Energizer and Rayovac batteries across the board - AA, AAA, 9 volt, etc. Those companies have something in common: all of them manufacture their batteries in the USA. They tend to be a little pricier than generic, store brand batteries, which are typically made in China, but Duracell, Energizer and Rayovac batteries, on the whole, last longer. The best way to get value is to compare store prices and buy larger quantities when possible.

                                                I use this battery to power audio equipment that has chosen this horrible voltage. Wish I could just carry around AA batteries but nope I have to keep a handful of these bricks around. Atleast they come in handy when the smoke alarm runs out of juice.

                                                    The Duracell 9v always gets the job done. I like to keep 4 or 5 around just in case I need some for new equipment. It was great that Rode included one in the mic and camera kit that I bought.
