Transcript

  • 1. Media Communications Project<br />Chapter 8: Video Recording<br />
  • 2. Video Recording<br />Chapter 8 has a section on video recording.<br />How it has changed since it first came about.<br />Video cameras used to have big reels of tape mounted to them.<br />Cameras today don’t have reels of film mounted to them.<br />
  • 3. How Recording Video Works<br />Works much like a VCR.<br />The camera component&amp;apos;s function is to receive visual information and interpret it as an electronic video signal<br />The electrical signals which it receives are recorded on video tape as magnetic patterns. <br />
  • 4. Recording with Digital Camcorders<br />It works much like with an analog camcorder.<br />Only difference is that it copies sound and video in the form of 1’s and 0’s.<br />You don’t loose any information you have recorded.<br />Digital video information can be uploaded to computers.<br />
  • 5. Camcorder Recording formats<br />MiniDV: uses tape and allows recording of standard definition digital video. DV is very easy to edit with a PC of Mac.<br />Cons to MiniDV: Slowly becoming obsolete.<br />HDV: Uses tape but records in high definition.<br />Cons to HDV: You need a better computer to upload and edit you work.<br />AVCHD: HD format that is tapeless and saves on hard drives and memory cards.<br />Cons to AVCHD: Again need a better computer to upload/edit your work. Mic inputs are very rare.<br />
  • 6. Today’s Video Cameras<br />Most new camcorders are digital and are easily connected to computers. <br />Many offer 720p or 1080p HD recording.<br />Are usually very small and easily carried around.<br />One of the newer camcorders for personal use is the Flip. It is small and compact, records in 720p, and has a USB connector build on it. <br />
  • 7. Price Ranges for Cameras<br />Under $1,000: Home video cameras.<br />$2,000 – $4,000: Higher quality camera that easily transfers film to a computer.<br />$20,000-$100,000: Used for big budget movies.<br />
  • 8. GL2 Mini DV 3CCD Camcorder<br />$1,800-$2,000<br />20x zoom<br />Optical Image Stabilization<br />2.5 inch LCD monitor<br />Weighs 2.5 pounds<br />
  • 9. Canon XL2 Camcorder<br />$2,800-$3,300<br />20x Zoom <br />Manual and automatic focus adjustment<br />No LCD display<br />Weighs 7.7 pounds<br />Uses MiniDV tapes to record what you film.<br />
  • 10. Panasonic AG DVX100B<br />About $2,000<br />3.5 inch LCD<br />10x Zoom<br />24p setting (means you can record 24 frames per second)<br />Resolution is 210,000 pixels in LCD and 230,000 in the viewfinder.<br />Uses MiniDV Tapes.<br />
  • 11. Other specifications to look for<br />If you plan to make a movie with your video camera make sure it has audio jacks.<br />These jacks would be used to connect a boom mic or a shotgun mic.<br />These microphones are used to help control what sounds you would pick up.<br />
