So you're looking to buy a new video camera... whether you are looking to capture your children or grandchildren in their growing up moments, planning to capture a special summer vacation, videotape events for your school, church, or synagogue... Chet will help you better understand the most important tech foundations of today's video cameras.
This class will provide you with just enough technical knowledge to help you make an informed decision - to weed out some of the marketing hype and sort through the assortment of cameras available. Chet will help you think about what's important to you in a camera and narrow down your search.
This class will not provide you with a solid recommendation for a specific camera manufacturer or model, but will help you understand the camera features and functions that will be important to you, and find a camera that includes those.
In this lesson Chet points out the benefits and limitations of using a digital camera as your next video camera. We'll take a quick look at both Compact or PAS (Point And Shoot) Cameras as well as the more sophisticated HDSLR (High-Definition Single Lens Reflex) Cameras.
