Tips and Solutions

You've captured the moment on video, now what? You connect the camcorder into a TV and playback the unedited footage. Your family and friends eyes start to glaze over as every shaky frame, every obscure angle and every poorly lit scene comes out in its true, unaltered, raw form. You begin to witness scenes when the record button was unknowingly turned on; the harsh shadows because you shot directly into a light source; and the bad audio. The problems are endless and your captured audience wants to politely head for the door, feigning sickness or the need to feed the dog. Anything, just don't let me watch the cacophony on the screen.

Hands-on Review

When aspiring filmmakers watch a Hollywood movie, they don't just see actors, camerawork, editing and effects. They see the dreamy richness of images shot on film. They see a depth of color and space that goes beyond the mantra of "progressive imaging, 24-frames-per-second" so often whispered, siren-like, in their ears.

Buying Guide

The industry's tallest, strongest tripods are usually made of carbon fiber, assembled in Europe, and cost tons of money. Buyers are typically well-funded professionals or hobbyists with a lot of disposable income. While a pro set of $900+ sticks might not be in the cards for everyone, serious photographers and video makers would do well to consider the budget-friendly Slik Pro 700DX.

Buying Guide

 Whether you’re an indie filmmaker, field reporter, or wedding videographer, a pro-grade video tripod will enhance your productions more than any other type of support accessory. By adding stability, forcing perspective through composition, and providing smooth pan and tilt movement, a good tripod + head can be just as integral to your production as the camera. So how do you choose the combination that’s right for you? Read on.

It was a couple of hours into a day-long shoot. It was hot out, and to say that we were sweating would be putting it lightly. Being a pretty barebones shoot, we were passing the video camera around quite a bit. Many a sweaty eyeball was pressed up against that poor viewfinder. As I strained to look through the slippery sweat-covered eyecup, it occurred to me that this might not be all that sanitary.

Like most photographers, I have a love-hate relationship with the tools I use. I am as captivated as the next photographer by the promise of the newest cameras, yet I am loath to give up old strategies that have served me so well. As a photographer, I depend on my cameras to make the pictures I want to make. As a professional, I depend on that same gear to earn my living.

If you were ready to buy a pocket video recorder, or had settled on a particular unit but were postponing your purchase, you might want to hold off a while longer until the new Kodak Mini Video Camera becomes available. It’s a slick little camera that should be a lot of fun.

Have you ever looked into a surveillance camera and wondered who was watching you? Well, even if you haven't, you should know that the camera mounted to the ceiling may well be a dummy. In fact, we carry loads of dummy surveillance cameras designed to deter would-be intruders by giving the feeling that they are being watched. This is a great item for mom-and-pop stores on a budget, families with concerns about trespassers, schools with concerns about delinquent behavior, and more.

Who Knew is an ongoing weekly series featuring some of the items that you wouldn't typically find in your average camera store. But then again, we're not your typical camera store.
