In the video I show three different cameras so that you can get an idea of the quality that various cameras have.
The first is my web cam from the New iMac
It shoots in 640 X 480. Not bad quality but it shouldn’t be relied on if you’re trying to brand yourself online using video.
The second camera is the Flip Mino HD.
It shoots in HD at 720p. You’ll see that it’s pretty good quality. I’ve used it for 90% of my videos in the last year and will still be using it quite often.
It’s so handy to just have it in my pocket and shoot video on the fly.
It’s around $250 so the price is great for the quality.
The third camera is the Canon EOS 7D
It shoots full 1080 HD video. The quality is amazing.
Many independent film makers are now using this camera.
The base price on this camera is $1699 but that only gives you the camera housing and nothing else that you’ll need to make it work.
You’ll need a lens, a flash memory card, a tripod, and an external mic.
Everything included will run you around $2200 for this camera.
If you’re looking to brand yourself online using video then you’ll want to be aware of the camera you’re using.
In future videos I’ll go into more detail on cameras, lighting, backdrops, and many other details of making you look good and sound good on video.
At my site at http://MovieStarEntrepreneur.com I examine the techniques that movie stars use in their movies to make themselves look and sound great.
I break down these techniques in ways we can use them to make ourselves into “movie star entrepreneurs”.
That’s all for now.
