I don't know about you, but when I think of Hewlett-Packard, it'sprinters and ink that generally come to mind first. But HP is into other things too.The company recently unveiled a line of digital camcorders that are aimed at YouTubers and other social mediaphiles. In pocket-friendly and traditional form-factors, with competitive pricing, these video cameras are poised to jump into the social networking frenzy for their piece of the scene.
Back when Heineken was the hot brand for cold beer, you could count on the bottles’ pulverized remains lining streets off the St. Patrick’s Day Parade route with green fairy dust. Magical as it seemed, broken glass isn’t exactly welcome on a set. That’s why the Breakaway Beer Bottle from Rosco Laboratories goes a long way to solving the problem of staging a fight without injuring actors or models.
Maybe you’ve seen these words floating around the B&H website recently: “The latest & greatest at B&H” . When it comes to camcorders this tab with the word “NEW!” highlighted by an eye-catching red circle lives on the right hand side of the page. Perhaps already set on drooling over the pro cams or perusing the consumer camcorders you passed it by. Whatever the case may be I thought I’d highlight this NEW! addition to our website.
I’m just sitting here at the B&H corporate offices on this cold winter’s day wondering which consumer camcorder format is going to win out: traditional or point and shoot? The ways things are heading it’s obvious that pocket camcorders like the Flip are becoming the most popular format, especially in light of the turbulent economy and the prevalence of social media.
High definition video from today's DSLRs is nothing short of incredible. Whether you're a professional journalist, a wedding videographer, or just capturing HD clips of friends and family, the high-quality look and breathtaking depth of field control are far superior to anything that you'll find in most dedicated pro camcorders. Big sensors, huge lens selection, manual exposure control + selectable frame rates -- it's easy to sing the praises of the new revolution. But it only takes a few minutes with one of the cameras to discover a major drawback -- ergonomics.
Mixing video is an art. Cutting at exactly the right time to maximize impact, pacing the length of each shot, choosing the best footage or angles to show-- it's about finding the right cadence and rhythm for the audio and visuals.
Finding the right rhythm when mixing a live performance becomes even more critical, because you don't get any second chances.
